Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere September 5, 2012.

The first week of college football is in the books. It was a mixed bag for the ACC. Clemson took care of the Auburn Tigers in the Georgia Dome. Virginia Tech got a leg up in the ACC Coastal with a win over Georgia Tech. The downside was NC State. The Wolfpack were a big disappointment losing badly to Tennessee.

OK how did the ACC bloggers see the first week of action?

ShakintheSouthland was feeling mighty fine following Clemson’s win over Auburn, and why not. Like me, they thought the play of Clemson’s offensive line play was a most pleasant surprise.

GobblerCountry breathed a sigh of relief after Virginia Tech slipped by Georgia Tech 20-17.  Don’t ask GobblerCountry what they thought about the Hokies coaching job though. We’ll leave it a win is a win. I wouldn’t worry too much about the Hokies. When was the last time they didn’t improve as the season progressed?

Georgia Tech blog FromtheRumbleSeat says despite the loss, there are some things to excited about from the Yellow Jackets. Good piece…

Need a mid-week look at the ACC this week’s upcoming games? ACCBlogger has it for you… 

Florida State suffered a major blow to their defense losing All-American DE Brandon Jenkins for the season with a foot injury. Tomahawknation describes how the Seminoles will move on.  You really hate to see this happen to a young man, that was arguably the best defensive lineman in the ACC. Good thing the Noles have depth on defense, but it’s still a big loss. 

Understandably StateFansNations took the NC State loss to Tennessee very hard.  No question it was huge blown opportunity to gain some national credibility.
