    We're almost halfway through the season. 

    BCS rankings will be coming out soon and everyone will be taking the time to reflect on how the season has transpired thus far.

    Sure, there are plenty of ways to recap the ACC teams so far in 2010, but I always thought that brevity was the best policy.

    So I decided to push my creativity genes and give us the ACC recap haiku-style.

    I hope you enjoy my five, seven, five syllable summaries for all 12 ACC teams.

    Feel free to submit your own!
