Statistically Speaking's Matt Melton takes an interesting look back at the 2006 ACC football season. He takes the points scored and points allowed by each team and compares those numbers to the league average and standard deviation. One of his conclusions:
Teams Likely to Improve: Virginia and NC State
The Cavs were a very young team in 2006, but were still actually about average. Expect 2007 to be Groh’s best in Charlottesville. NC State finished 2-6, but they were much closer to Maryland in terms of SDPI than either or their basement brethren on Tobacco Road. Tom O’Brien was a great hire and NC State will contend for a bowl game in 2007.
