STG: Do you have any predictions for Clemson football this year? How about the ACC as a whole?

RTR: For Clemson, my guess would be about nine wins in the regular season. Florida State may be the best team in college football this year and the Tigers have not beaten South Carolina in quite awhile, so I can’t help but think those are probably two losses. I actually expect Clemson to beat Georgia (the Bulldogs always strike me as being very beatable) but they could drop another game somewhere along the line, possibly to Louisville. North Carolina could give Clemson a tough game, as well.

I think the ACC is really moving up in the college football world and I expect that to continue this year. I’ve given up trying to figure out the Coastal division but I like where almost everyone in the Atlantic is heading. Louisville and Syracuse could both be tough, NC State should be better, if not great, with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, and I’m going to assume BC will be tougher than people expect, just based on Addazio.
