A Weak Start For The ACC

It's only the first week of football season,but much of the ACC has already been embarrassed.

State got abused on Thursday, losing to South Carolina, 34-0.

Saturday, Alabama whipped up on Clemson, 34-10, Virginia got trashed by USC 52-7, and Virginia Tech lost to ECU, 27-22.

UNC and Maryland had narrow escapes versus Delaware and McNeese State, winning by 35-27 and 14-7, respectively.

On the bright side, Miami showed signs of life Thursday, beating Charleston Southern, 52-7, Georgia Tech seems to be taking to Paul Johnson's offense, beating Jacksonville State 41-17, and Wake rolls on, knocking off Baylor, 41-13.

But still: the marquee games were an embarrassment.
