ACC Roundtable: Revisiting Preseason Expectations

Are SBN's ACC bloggers pleased or disappointed about how the football season is going so far?

Note that in 2009, it was the ACC Championship Game that featured two of the league's top three offenses piling up 73 points and 883 yards of total offense while the best defenses in the high-flying Big 12 beat each other to a pulp in a 13-12 clinch-fest. But that was characteristic of a conference that opened with a 38-34 thriller in its marquee rivalry, setting the tone for the entire season. The No. 1 offense ran for 300-plus yards in wins over both the first and second-ranked defenses. Georgia Tech and Florida State traded blows a in a lightning-streaked, 93-point, 1071-yard shootout that ended with a single punt by either team. At one point, Wake Forest's Riley Skinner, who entered the year with zero 300-yard passing games in three full seasons as a starter, passed for at least 350 three weeks in a row. Duke's Thaddeus Lewis went over 300 (usually well over 300) in six of the Blue Devils' last eight games, joining Philip Rivers as the only ACC quarterbacks ever to pass for 10,000 yards in a career.

Scientific proof of sentient offense in the ACC. It's ACC week over at Dr. Saturday. (BTW: if you are seeing these EA Sports ads, I apologize for the shock.)

Phil Steele's preseason All-ACC team came out and Georgia Tech quarterback Joshua Nesbitt is on the fourth team behind Christian Ponder, Tyrod Taylor and Jacory Harris, in that order.

Apparently Phil Steele feels Russell Wilson is not one of the league's top four QBs.

ACC Returning Offensive Percentages

Here's an interesting breakdown by Gobbler Country. NC State's passing game returns almost completely intact, but the o-line is the least experienced unit in the league.
