Aug 25, 2008

There are a lot great teams in the ACC, but the betting pick (10-2) are the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Led by Jim Grobe, plus a host of other returning key players, not only are the Deacons poised to win the Atlantic but might go through it all undefeated.

Picked for second (9-3) are the Clemson Tigers. Led by the trio of James Davis, C.J. Spiller and Cullen Harper, the Tigers boast what may be the best offense in the league.

Projected good for third (8-4) are the Maryland Terrapins. Despite the lose of E.J. Henderson, their offensive line can go with the best in the conference, although they have some tough road games.

Expected to end up 4th are the Boston College Eagles (7-5), who will be hard pressed to find someone to replace Matt Ryan. The Florida St. Seminoles (7-5) will be fifth but if Drew Weatherford can come up with something they may have a few surprises.

At sixth will likely be the NC St. Wolf Pack (3-9). Despite having Tom O' Brien, the Pack will be without their best tacklers this season, not to mention their struggles on defense (allowing 28 pts per game).
