In a world filled with texts and tweets, saying something significant in a few words is the standard.
Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I tip my hat to Jeff and offer 2012-13 ACC team-by-team previews that are 140 characters or less.
Brad Brownell will have the Tigers (16-15, 8-8 in ACC) ready to pounce, but from where will the points come? Devin Booker and Milton Jennings could be nasty down low.
Blue Devils (27-7, 13-3 ACC) have more senior experience than just about anyone in the country. Mason Plumlee's return makes a deep run in March Madness possible.
FSU (25-10, 12-4 ACC) will challenge for the league title. Could senior guard Michael Snaer be the first 'Nole to win the ACC POY award in school history? Possibly.
Tech (11-20, 4-12 ACC) may be better off without Glen Rice, Jr. Sad. Mfon Udofia is ready for a breakout senior season. Incoming PF Robert Carter will be special.
Maryland (17-15, 6-10 ACC) is regrouping. Terrell Stoglin’s exit changes dynamic of the team. If incoming frosh Shaquille Cleare is ready, watch for Terps to jump.
UNC (32-6, 14-2 ACC) loses four draft picks but will challenge for the league title. James Michael McAdoo will be a star. Frosh PG Marcus Paige can score in bunches.
Virginia (22-10, 9-7 ACC) will miss Mike Scott. The rest of the Cavaliers return to build off '11-12 success. Tony Bennett signed a fantastic 2012 recruiting class.
Virginia Tech (16-17, 4-12 ACC) lost big talent after Seth Greenberg's firing. Senior guard Erick Green (15.6 PPG) is ready to blow up. Hokies will struggle again.
Head coach Jeff Bzdelik will eventually be through cleaning house at Wake Forest (13-18, 4-12 ACC). C.J Harris and Travis McKie are back to lead the way.
