I’m not saying anything that you don’t know, but the ACC really has been odd this year. Case in point: your THB staff all got the Pitt/Miami game wrong because we all chose...Pitt. We had gotten so jaded with the Hurricanes that we totally expected them to just fall apart after their upset against NC State.
There was someone who picked FSU to beat Clemson and it didn’t look at that odd...Boston College against Syracuse was a toss up... and some of us also thought that Miami exposed something about State that would send them spiraling. Up is down, right is left, and so on and so on.
Despite all this, some of us have managed to take a hold of this season as someone managed an almost perfect week:
Hats off to Max. He was afraid that he was beginning his late season swoon, and instead he’s vaulted out to the top with a 7-1 week. I’ll take my 5-3, thank you.
Max now vaults to a lead of 49-18, a full two games over the rest of the pack. The second place pack is still four strong, hoping for a little magic to overtake Max. Last year’s champ, Evan? He’s...not part of that group. It looks like Jake was smart enough to break away form predicting with Evan earlier in the season, but luckily Evan is only one game out from the cellar, so this fight will be going on for a while.
That fight continues this week, so let’s see what we think will happen on the ACC gridiron:
Only one game with a full boat of agreement-Pitt vs. Duke. Everyone else, including Clemson/Louisville, has at least one outlier. Some of us still think Miami is going to trip over themselves, and Florida State’s showing against Clemson has some of us thinking that in Tallahassee, the Wolfpack will once again stumble. We’re also completely split on how the shootout on Saturday will go with Wake/Carolina.
We’ll see if there is any more separation after this slate as time is running out for people to make a move. In the meantime, let’s enjoy our last weekend without regular season college basketball until April. Things are about to get a whole lot more hectic.
