The N&O has a column up about the ACC next year and surprise: Duke, UNC and Virginia all have work to do but are expected to be near the top.

It’s going to be a year with lots of changes so there will be chances to move up. At the end though, Duke, UNC and Virginia will all probably be at or near the top.

NC State and Louisville, according to Joe Giglio, could move up.

It’s still early though and rosters are still in flux. For instance, just Wednesday Kerry Blackshear decided to leave for Florida. He had thought about sticking around which would have obviously made a big difference in what we could expect from the Hokies.

By the way, this article is in the Durham Herald-Sun, not the N&O, but the McClatchey corporation bought the N&O, then the Charlotte Observer and the Durham Herald-Sun. So if you look the sports pages are essentially the same and most of the articles we link start at the N&O.

This is why, incidentally, we’re now getting a lot of South Carolina stories here even though most people in the Triangle couldn’t care less about the Gamecocks.
