UNC Picked 3rd in Coastal Division

USA TODAY Sports

The ACC media has voted on the preseason predictions for the 2013 season and UNC has been tabbed for 3rd place in the Coastal Division. The full results can be found here.

UNC received 22 first place votes and was just behind second place Virginia Tech. Miami was picked to win the Coastal with 65 first place votes. Georgia tech, Pitt, Virginia and Duke rounded out the division. UNC also received three votes to win the ACC Championship game outright. It should be noted that the line between UNC and Virginia Tech is pretty thin and while Miami is solidly in first, the Hurricanes could face additional sanctions from the NCAA such as a postseason ban. Miami has self-imposed a bowl ban for the past two seasons but that could mean little to the NCAA. If Miami is barred from the ACC title game it could open the door for someone else.

In the Atlantic, Clemson was the overwhelming favorite to win the division and was chosen on 95 out of 120 ballots as the winner of the ACC Championship game in Charlotte. FSU was selected second in the Atlantic followed by NC State, Wake Forest, Maryland, Syracuse and Boston College.

On the player of the year front, Clemson's Tajh Boyd was the predictable favorite by a wide margin with 105 votes. Bryn Renner received two votes to finish 5th.
