Our ACC football power rankings to start the 2014 season may not resemble the ACC media poll from earlier this summer, but that’s okay.
In it, the Boston College Eagles were again relegated to the bottom, coming in sixth place out of seven teams; prior to last season, the Eagles were in dead last by a sizable margin. At least Boston College is only being mostly written off as opposed to completely written off, right?
I’m just a simple guy with a keyboard and Eagles football season tickets, and am clearly not an “expert,” but if they can put together a ballot, so can I.
With a week to go until the season, this is how I currently see the Atlantic Coast Conference.
ACC Football Power Rankings: ACC Atlantic
- 1. Florida State Seminoles
- 2. Clemson Tigers
The Tigers still look like about a 9 or 10-win team. Back in my day, when I was a young lad at Boston College, that was an average season for the Eagles (shakes cane).
- 3. Louisville Cardinals
The ACC would rather have them than Maryland, but of course, there goes a free annual win over Randy Edsall.
- 4. Boston College Eagles
Well now, here are the Eagles. I still hold Boston College and Syracuse about even, but like I’m going to put them above us.
- 5. Syracuse Orange
Syracuse is somewhere in the middle. Here is fine.
- 6. NC State Wolfpack
Dave Doeren has some work to do.
- 7. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Dave Clawson has even more work to do.
