ACC Coastal Division 

1. Virginia Tech Hokies (10-2)—They have the best chance to win but watch out for North Carolina or Georgia Tech.

2. North Carolina Tar Heels (9-3)—They have a lot of talent we will see how much Hakeem Nicks means to UNC when the season starts.

3. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (9-3)—They have a bunch of players coming back.

4. Miami Hurricanes (7-5)—A ton of young talent just needs to get some experience.

5. Virginia Cavaliers (5-7)—Just expect another year like last year.

6. Duke Blue Devils (3-9)—Duke lost key receivers because of graduations and it might affect senior quarterback Thaddeus Lewis.


ACC Atlantic Division

1. Florida State Seminoles (8-4)—Expect a better year than the last three years.

2. Clemson Tigers (7-5)—Just hang in there Tigers; you will improve.

3. Wake Forest Demon Deacons (6-6)—Wake will get a bowl but it might be the EagleBank Bowl again.

4. Boston College Eagles (5-7)—Ain't going to be the same without B.J. Raji.

5. Maryland Terrapins (4-8)—They are going to miss Darrius Heyward-Bey.

6. N.C. State Wolfpack (4-8)—They might be able to get a bowl but as many injuries they seem to have each year, I will give them four wins.
