On the heels of the Jimmaul Simmons news, JP Giglio noted that there wasn't much in the way of good passing offenses in the ACC last season, and that that figures to be true again in 2009, so it's no time to panic. Fine, fine. *slowly backs away from ledge*
But while no ACC offense finished in the top 50 nationally in passing, a number of them performed like top 50 passing offenses against NC State, and about three quarters of State's opponents had above-average passing days.

(First three columns: what our opponents did against us. Second three: what they did against everyone else, excluding their numbers against NC State. Green: held opponent below season average in that category. Red: opponent exceeded season average in that category.)
Adjust your concern as you see fit.
