Joe Giglio looks at the upcoming ACC - the new ACC race we should say - and sees Duke way ahead of everyone else. He's picking Notre Dame to finish ahead of UNC, then Syracuse, Virginia and Maryland. Here's his full list.
The thing is, all the teams are intriguing in one way or another. How will James Johnson build his Virginia Tech program? Can Wake's young core save Jeff Bzdelik's job? Can Jim Larranaga pull a surprise with transfers and Jucos? Will Florida State return to form? Will Tech have a point guard?
It's always fun. We can't wait.
