ACC Football Crashes and Burns

And just like that, we are at week three and ACC football is in the crapper. The conference started off with five teams in the AP Top 25 Preseason poll – Virginia Tech, Miami, Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Florida State – and now only Miami (who lost to #2 Ohio State) remains.

Nice, ACC, NICE!

The Hokies are, of course, the big shock starting out (0-2). To see what folks are saying courtesy of Gobbler Country, click here.

Miami, Florida State and Georgia Tech are all 1-1 and save for the Yellow Jackets losing to Kansas, nobody should be surprised by those records.

The Heels are 0-1 after a heart wrenching loss to LSU and they managed not to lose last weekend as they had a bye. They get Georgia Tech this weekend.

All the while this was happening, JMU, now #3 in FBS poll got 11 votes for the big boy poll. This marked the first time the Dukes had received any votes for the AP Top 25 poll. N.C. State, Clemson and BC also got votes so right now the league may not be making national headlines (at least good ones), but the in-conference matchups continue to look like entertaining games.

In this morning's Washington Post, John Feinstein (Duke) was nearly so nice about it...to read his column, click here.
