Deacon Dump 10/4: Recapping the Deacs' win over State


Lots of stories about the shakeup in the Atlantic as well as the win over State, which will probably turn out to be huge near the end of this season. Enjoy.

Welcome back to ACC Roulette! Starring the masters, Maryland and Virginia - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF - Yahoo! Sports
So Maryland and Virginia, the conference's worst teams over the first four weeks, led by beleaguered coaches bound for the chopping block, currently sit atop their respective divisions at 1-0 in conference play. At least one of them is going to a bowl game for the third straight year. You know this; you can't explain it, but you know it. And so it begins.

Meanwhile, Duke's Kyle Singler (6-8) and Wake Forest's Al-Farouq Aminu (6-9) are expected to move from their post positions to the 3 spot, making for sizable (and formidable) frontcourts.

"I'll talk to Alex Monday and we'll see,'' Grobe said. "I put a high standard with older players. We just felt like we needed some young guys to throw out there. Sometimes when you're trying to work young guys in it's hard to have the old guys hanging over their shoulder. So we'll re-visit that (Frye) on Monday and try to make a decision.''

Starters rule the floor in Hawks' scrimmage  | ajc.com
Hawks assistant coach Larry Drew is working to change at least one part of Jeff Teague's game. He's trying to get the rookie point guard to be more vocal on the floor with his veteran teammates. "The one thing all young guys want to do is to fit in," Drew said. "Going through that whole process, the one thing he has to understand is that you have to continue to do the things that got you here. If you are a leader by nature, you have to continue to be a leader, regardless of how young you are. Because those are traits that a point guard, and particularly one like Jeff who is quiet by nature, has to get better at."

"Once I got stopped, I was like, I can’t afford to be stopped by this one man," Adams said. "I just kept my head down and kept my feet moving."
