    I love that UNC is always projected above us and pretty much never finish that way.

    Also looks like we will play 4 of the 5 ACC POY candidates. And likely all 5. :p

    I think GT wins the Coastal, and if we do, then JT has a great chance at ACC POY.

    Is anyone as astounded as I am that UNC got 27 votes to win the division? And equally astounded that every year multiple writers pick them to win?

    I also noticed that some people cannot give up on VPI winning the Conference.

    Not nearly as astounded as the number of votes Duke got. Are they serious?...we are essentially voted to be in the very bottom of the ACC. If that doesn't motivate our team, then nothing will!

    They done stirred up a YellowJacket nest with our guys. I will enjoy watching our team prove the "experts" wrong again.

    Just as we are due a win against VT, and miami some time soon, I think we are due a loss against unc also. They played well to close out a season last year. I hope this is not the year we fall to them, though.

    Out of 112 people, only 1 vote for GT to win the Coastal, My guess is that it was Heather Dinich..

    You'd think at some point they would get tired of being wrong about us every year, but they never seem to learn.

    We beat Duke last season...but they ended winning the division and going to the ACCCG.

    I think we'll beat Duke and UNC again this year, but it doesn't necessarily mean we'll finish above them. Remember, had crazy things not happened a few years back, UNC and not us would have gone on to play FSU in the 2012 ACCCG.

    Look at who they played to close out their season. That they played well isn't a coincidence.

    I think Clemson will beat FSU this year and win the ACC. Any FSU fan that wants to PM me and give me 50:1 odds can do so.

    We should be a lot better than 5th or 6th in Coastal. But we have to show it on the field. We have hashed out the predicted Coastal standings, but the odds that are implied by these rankings show the underlying silliness of it all.

    You need 50:1 odds. Are you sure that you think Clemson will win?

    If people bring up CPJ and the 7 win equilibrium every year, they also need to recognize that GT under CPJ has an average finish in our division of 1.7...that's pretty darn good.

    I think that speaks to the poor play in the ACC and not necessarily how good we are.

    I had the same thought; he isn't confident he just likes a good bet and knows a Seminole fan is dumb enough to give him one.
