Weather report from Blacksburg: 100 percent chance of precipitation. Clearly the Hokies are the mudders in the Va. Tech-Miami affair; if Miami's long-ball assault survives after the black skies, the blacker strains of "Enter Sandman" and the forbiddingly black intentions of Bud Foster's defense, the ACC is officially the 'Canes' conference to lose.
What: Game day live blog. All games in play and all comments welcome.
When: First kick at noon Eastern; chat kicks roughly simultaneously. The blog will run throughout the day, through at least the primetime tilts. Midnight oil pending the competitiveness of Houston-Texas Tech or, heaven forbid, Washington State-USC.
Who: You and all your rowdy friends. Come loud, proud and at least sober enough to type, please.
How: Hit "Watch Now," enter comments into the available box and do your part to accelerate the slow, agonizing death of conventional journalism.
Why: Because dropping strategic bombs filled with snark and satire on earnest adolescents never gets old, and Jacory Harris' zig-zagged scalp art is must-see TV. Football!
