What are the best teams by Conference? ACC

College Football Resource has recently published a list of the Top 5 teams In the BCS conferences. Obviously whenever something of this nature is writen so far before the season their is bound to be some controvery involved, but on the whole I'd have to say CFN got it right. Nevertheless, a further look is in order, to hopefully generate more discussion on the topic. Today we take a look at the ACC:

ACC
CFR List

  • Miami
  • Florida State
  • Clemson
  • Virginia Tech
  • Georgia Tech

Pitch Right List

  • Florida State
  • Clemson
  • Miami
  • Virignia Tech
  • Boston College

Florida State came a field goal away from upsetting Penn State last year, and without having to play either Virginia Tech or Boston College in the regular season, have the best shot at winning the ACC. After a good, but sometimes inconsistent freshman year, Drew Weatherford looks poised to become the ACC's top QB. As much as it pains me to give praise to a program that through the years has had more then its fair share of convicts, FSU returns leading wideout Chris Davis and RB Lorenzo Booker to what should be a high powered offense. The real story here may be the Defense, which despite losing 7 starters remains very stout. Clemson, despite losing 40 start veteran Charlie Whitehurst, still has a potent running game and top notch defense, and should really make s splash onto the National scene again this year. After last year's Bowl loss to LSU, Miami looks like it may be on the dowswing, especially with a new offense being put into place. While Miami still has a good shot at winning the ACC, it may very well need this year to rebuild instead of as they say, reload. Boston College is my darkhorse for this league, as another good developing QB In Matt Ryan returns with an offensive line that has logged 74 combined starts. The defense was at times freakish last year, but a weakened defensive line and questions regarding the ability of a new set of recievers will likely keep the team from winning the conference. That 5th spot could be open to a number of teams, and the real quesiton is can any of the Middle ACC teams (Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, NCST...) make a push for the championship? The answer could surprise you, as teams are constantly knocking each other off the top positon in this league.
