Boston College head coach Frank Spaziani on his quarterback situation: “It's sort of like back to Square One, isn't it? We'll handle it with Mikey [Marscovetra] and Dave [Shinskie] and keep our other options open.”

I wonder what options Spaziani is referring to. Possibly a Billy Flutie start? That would be his first as an Eagle.

This is getting annoying: Clemson defensive back DeAndre McDaniel made a “Tim Tebow vow” to correct mistakes and play better football.

Duke head coach David Cutcliffe on the bye week: “The open date is really at a friendly mark. A lot of evaluation of our personnel of what we're doing and what we're accomplishing and what we can do in the second half of the season to grow as a football team.”

Jimbo Fisher was pleased with Florida State’s Tuesday practice, which could not have come at a better time, seeing as the Seminoles have a date with a ranked conference opponent at 8:00 ET on Saturday.

The offensive line for Georgia Tech has been considerably inconsistent; so have the results of the Yellow Jackets’ games.

Are the Maryland Terrapins tired? Head coach Ralph Friedgen was quoted saying, “I think our kids need to get away from football for a little bit.”

Over the past five quarters, No. 13 Miami has forced nine turnovers. In 54 quarters last year, the ‘Canes forced just 21 turnovers.

North Carolina State wide receiver Darrell Davis on the Wolfpack’s loss to Virginia Tech last weekend: “We all needed to feel the taste of defeat.”

Mike London and the other Virginia coaches assign grades to each player who participates in a Cavalier football game to better form depth charts and prepare players for the following weeks.

Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer on his offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring’s decision to make up a trick play: “I think we've got to have different things like that, the element of surprise.”

Do not make any bets on the Wake Forest-Navy game yet; the Demon Deacons have not named a starting quarterback.
