Football Outsiders' ACC Picks

Football Outsiders' college football almanac is available for five bucks here.

Coastal

1.) Virginia Tech -- 10-2 (6-2)
2.) Georgia Tech -- 8-4 (5-3)
3.) Miami -- 7-5 (4-4)
4.) North Carolina -- 6-6 (3-5)
5.) Virginia -- 5-7 (3-5)
6.) Duke -- 4-8 (1-7)

Atlantic

1.) Clemson -- 9-3 (5-3)
2.) Boston College -- 9-3 (5-3)
3.) Florida State -- 7-5 (5-3)
4.) Wake Forest -- 7-5 (4-4)
5.) NC State -- 6-6 (3-5)
6.) Maryland -- 5-7 (3-5)

That's certainly the most optimistic Boston College projection you'll see this off-season.  The general consensus is that the Eagles will finish fifth in the Atlantic; aside from FO, only Phil Steele expects them to finish in the top half of the division.

They anticipate NC State's offense and defense both being a smidge worse than last season.  They'll be wrong on at least one count.

Other notables:

South Carolina -- 6-6 (3-5); 5th in SEC East
Pittsburgh -- 8-4 (4-3); 3rd in Big East
