Not much surprising about anything here.

In totally expected news, NC State has been picked to finish fourth in the Atlantic Division and did not receive any first-place votes. Also expected: the three teams with the most votes to win the ACC title are all in the Atlantic. So it goes.

There’s not much surprising about any of the predictions from the media, though someone did pick Duke to not only win the Coastal but also capture the league title. Maybe a little ambitious there.

Lamar Jackson is the preseason player of the year, and JaySam finished fifth in the voting.
