Last week in the ACC was somehow wild and chalk all at the same time — business as usual for the ACC. Almost the entire staff went 5-2, with wins by Miami and Boston College being the only real games differentiating the picks. Evan leads the way with 63 correct picks this season, but Akil is hot on his heels with 61. Chad is the only other member of the staff to crack 60 correct picks to this point, putting him in third place.
These are also the first staff predictions that feature men’s basketball. Other than Chad being a bit of a downer, all of us are feeling confident about Carolina’s chances against Notre Dame.

As far as the football goes, there is shockingly not a whole lot of faith in Duke or State. Louisville at Miami and Florida State at Boston College for the Red Bandana game seem to be the only real toss ups on paper.
The college basketball season opens with a number of conference games to kick off the new 20-game ACC slate. The only game that’s not a conference game is Duke taking on Kansas in at top five matchup at the Champions Classic.
Let us (Chad) know what you think about what’s going to happen this weekend!
