Here’s the long and short of it...The two top teams are again Duke and North Carolina. The interesting questions involve who will finish third through fifth and find their way to the Big Dance.
To date, it looks like Virginia, Florida State and Virginia Tech are the most likely middle tier teams, but the jury is still way out on the three squads with new head coaches -- Miami, Maryland and N.C. State.
It looks pretty grim for Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Boston College. B.C. is the only team in the league with a losing record, and they open Saturday in Chapel Hill...Ouch.
