POWER 5 COUNTDOWN – The ACC

ACC-Mascots-July-1-NYCThe Power 5 Countdown continues with number 4. This one should be less of a surprise after how you saw how I put the Big-10, yup the next conference with a bunch of filler teams is the ACC. Last year they did have Florida State get to the Final Four only to be demolished by Oregon, but they also had Georgia Tech who had a fantastic year and won a New Years Six game very convincingly. In fact in late October this last season I predicted that Georgia Tech would be a Final Four team and they just barley missed out loosing to Florida State in the ACC championship game by 2. But other than those teams what does this conference have.

Championship Contenders: NONEEverttGolson

New Years Six Contenders: Georgia Tech, Florida State, Clemson

Bowl Game Safe: Duke, Louisville, NC State, Pittsburgh, Miami, Virginia Tech

 

Florida State does have a QB coming in who has been to a National Championship game, but he also did nothing in that game. Everett Golson I think will have a good end to his career at Florida State but I don’t see it turning into a great season for the team overall. I cant seem them running off another long winning streak with this QB but I can see them doing a New Years Six at best, meaning they were still pretty good.

georgia-tech-fb.0Georgia Teach last year showed that a triple option can do amazing in this era of college football, and I think they will take that momentum and bring in another New Years six, this team could beat this years Florida State and I hope that what we see in the ACC Championship Game.

Clemson the last few years is that team that always seems to be so close but can never get that one big win. Every year I thin that they will finally reach it, and im going to believe it again this year. The ACC is weaker this year now that Florida States run seems to be closing and if they can stay strong like they have the last 4 seasons this can be the year they finally pull off a great championship season.

 

Everyone else in the ACC is just going to kill each other off for a chance of a bowl game. This conference is a very all over the place league cause the difference from a bowl game  team in this conference isn’t that much different from a 4 or 5 win team. Unless your Syracuse, in that case I dont know what to do.
