I have been in journalism and marketing my entire career. Now, I am working with the University of North Carolina Asheville in the athletic department and writing a sports commentary blog, SportsView. There is always more available on my website, www.martinnicholson.com and I invite you to visit! I write about my views of events and people. I do not recap every game because there are too many sites doing that. Hope you enjoy my comments.

WEEK 5 will start separating the pretenders from the contenders. Clemson at Virginia Tech to begin with, followed by Alabama at Florida and Nebraska at Wisconsin.

Pittsburgh is playing like they are already in the ACC, losing an eminently winnable game last week against Notre Dame (and, by the way, you may remember…
