Pithy Comments

- I have the ACC going 4-0 in four fairly tough non-conference games. That probably won't happen in real life, but it's fun to dream. The most-likely non-conference loss this week is NC State against Pittsburgh.
- This will be a key week in the ACC Coastal. Virginia Tech hosts Miami and Georgia Tech hosts North Carolina. Both home teams will be trying to avenge road losses from last year in which they didn't play well. I think both the Hokies and Jackets hold serve at home.
- Maryland wins the battle of New Jersey over intrastate rival Rutgers.
- BC is the first ACC team at 0-2 after losing at home to Wake in a game that features the winners of the last three Atlantic division titles.
