Forecasting 2017 in the ACC and Nationally

Posted: Aug 16, 2017 11:16 PM

So here we are, just about two and a half weeks away from the start of the season. Here are my picks for the playoffs, the ACC standings, and the ACC bowls.

1. Florida State
2. Clemson
3. NC State
4. Louisville
5. Wake Forest
6. Syracuse
7. Boston College

1. Miami
2. Georgia Tech
3. Virginia Tech
4. North Carolina
5. Duke
6. Pittsburgh
7. Virginia

ACC Championship: Florida State 38 Miami 17


Sugar: #4 Alabama def #1 Ohio State
Rose: #2 USC def #3 Florida State
Championship: #4 Alabama def #2 USC

NY6 Bowls:
Orange: Clemson vs Penn State
Cotton: Oklahoma vs USF
Peach: TCU vs Auburn
Fiesta: Washington vs Georgia

ACC Bowls:
Citrus: Miami vs Tennessee
Russell Athletic: Notre Dame vs Oklahoma State
Belk: Georgia Tech vs Texas A&M
Sun: Louisville vs Oregon
Pinstripe: NC State vs Maryland
Music City: Virginia Tech vs LSU
Independence: North Carolina vs Mississippi State
Military: Duke vs Tulsa
Quick Lane: Wake Forest vs Northern Illinois (not enough remaining Big 10 teams)

No Bowl: Pitt, UVA, Cuse, and Boston College

On the coaching market: Boston College and NC State (The Wolfies decide not to commit to DD long term).

not bad

I think Pitt may surprise. I think they win 6+ and get to a bowl and I put them above Duke and maybe UNC in their division.

I'd love to see Clemson and Penn State - could be a good matchup.

USC has all the talent but are consistently overrated -- this year, too.

#4 Alabama vs #1 OSU means the tide loose a game somewhere and OSU doesn't. I think it more likely OSU drops a game than Alabama during the regular season. But I like OSU failing in the bowl game again.

I'm not sure why NC State would make a move ... I predict they realize they are a 7-win team year in and year out and just accept their fate.
