Well it's Valentine's Day, and you know what that means ... a loving dose of ACC Daily Links:

Boston College
Boston College's game against Georgia Tech was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but after the snowstorm, it was postponed to Thursday night. Once the game finally did roll around, it was another disappointment for Eagle fans, as the team dropped a winnable game to the Yellow Jackets 74-71.

Ryan Kantor developed a football season simulator and ran it for Clemson's next season of games. Dan Brooks' challenge for the Tigers is to keep pushing his veteran players while preparing the younger guys at the same time.

According to the Duke Chronicle, the Blue Devils had no intentions of leaving Durham for Chapel Hill early because they prepare for the game as if it were a home game. Coach K talked about the decision to postpone the game on his weekly radio show.

Florida State
This year's FSU baseball team looks to be extremely balanced with a pretty impressive pitching staff to go along with a good offense. Freshman outfielder Ben DeLuzio is looking to continue a Florida State centerfield tradition even though he hasn't played a game at the position yet.

Georgia Tech
Marcus Georges-Hunt propelled Georgia Tech to victory against Boston College with a last-second three-pointer in last night's game. Benjamin Tankersley previews Georgia Tech's 2014 nine as college baseball gets under way this weekend. 

Alex Prewitt looks over the Maryland-Virginia film to see how well the Terps managed to dictate the tempo against the Cavs. As Maryland prepares to play Duke this Saturday, many players and coaches reflect on the rivalry that the teams once shared.

Former Miami Hurricanes players Alex Fernandez and Mike Fiore will be inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame. This year's Miami baseball team is armed and ready for a deep run.

North Carolina
C.L. Brown writes that UNC should consider rearranging the student section to make the Dean Dome a tougher environment for away teams. Andrew Carter blames the ACC for the delayed postponement of the UNC-Duke game Wednesday.

N.C. State
State could be one of the teams in the ACC to finish above .500 and not get an at-large invite. Elliott Avent is going to have to work with a less experienced bullpen this year, but it still has a lot of depth.

Notre Dame
The Irish addressed the need for a defensive tackle in this year's class with three players who could help in the future. Notre Dame's 2015 class is going to be a fairly small one, given the number of players who will be graduating.

The Panthers didn't lose their game to Syracuse because of Tyler Ennis but because their offense sputtered late in the game. New Pitt defensive backs coach Troy Douglas is looking for interceptions and aggressiveness with his players.

Syracuse basketball can be identified with a big fat zero right now. Apparently that's a good thing. The players on the team always believe they will find some way to win each of their games, no matter how unlikely the odds may be.

The Virginia baseball team is taking its No. 1 ranking in stride. David Teel wonders if UVa's free throw shooting could derail the team during the postseason.

Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech is starting its baseball season with a round-robin tournament against Youngstown State and Charlotte this weekend. There's a cool new infographic out that highlights the Hokies' recruiting efforts over the years. 

Wake Forest 
Wake Forest's four-game losing streak is more of the same for Demon Deacon fans. If the team wants to get an at-large bid, they are going to have to win four or five of their last seven games.
