ACC Kickoff news roundup

The Boston media's coverage of events like the ACC Kickoff has been spotty in the past. Thankfully, this year they delivered. The Globe and the Herald both posted multiple articles today.
-- The Globe on Purvis/Crane.
-- Globe notebook column.
-- The Herald's notebook, which mentions Crane and Purvis' high school relationship (I have a feeling we'll be hearing this mentioned every game).
--The Herald's feature on Brace.
-- BC even put together a quotes page from the two seniors.

As for hard BC news, there wasn't much. Jeff Smith's return generated a fair bit of interest, but I am hedging on his contributions. With head injuries one play can make a difference. Whatever we get from him this year will be gravy.

Heather Dinich posted a link dump this morning.

Tony Barnhart asked Purvis how often he is asked about Matt Ryan. So did Ken Tysiac.

All the leading ACC passers hope to have a season like Matt Ryan.

Another article on the ACC's growing pains.

Purvis is quoted in this article about the balance of power in the ACC vis a vis the two divisions.

Our defensive line will have to watch their knees when we play Georgia Tech.
