ACC Preview

Sat, Aug 29, 2015

Weak Atlantic division. Only competition Florida state
Come off throttling of Oklahoma in bowl
Leading rusher and top wr return
The best qb returns in true soph deshaun Watson. Was special when healthy. Throws ball downfield well and adjusted to dabo swinney offense.
Big experienced receivers and tight end.
Talents on receiving end.
Top defense in country in 2014
Experienced offensive line. Four seniors Only two were starters

Only return 3 defensive starters
Three new starters on offensive line
Qb Watson glass in 2014. Three injuries in freshman year

Clemson has patsy first two games. Expect quick trigger with Watson qb due to past injuries. Probably an avoid first two games

Florida state
Best rb coming back in sophomore dalvin cook. Expect to work him early
Huge targets at wr and tight end and two experienced wr back.
Good kicker best in country. Good punter too
Seven starters back on 61 ranked defensive.
Second year with new defensive scheme should help
Top four tackling lb back

Only one started back on offensive line. Golson probe to sacks. Three plus times in last five games
Not good against run in 2014
No good at pressuring qb
Qb question marks

I like Florida state early versus Texas state and south Florida to run up the spread and will be looking to buy early lines. Need to test golson and see if he is legit. Plus jimbo has critics and lives to bury teams I also like a flier bet on Seminoles to win conference and national title. Still working with top five recruiting classes all years

Nc state
Big mo went from no conference wins in 2013 to bowl win over ucf in 2014.
14 starters return.
Efficient qb in Florida transfer bissett. Good in red zone. Low turnovers
Three returning starters on of line
Lost top wr to Yale go figure
Top te and receiving rb back
Experienced defense with eight starters back.
Secondary most experience in acc

Gave up ton of sacks in 2014 with same line
Not much pass catching experience at wr
Weak at df end and did not pressure qb well in 2014
Despite defense starters coming back defense was poor statistically across board in acc. Is returning poor performing players a good thing?
Freshman punter and kicker. Danger

Very easy pre conference schedule need to test passing game. Expect starters to play a lot and will look take shot on lines not too high.

Top four acc passing offense I. 2014 returns starting qb
Top rb returns in Brandon Radcliffe who was strong at end of season
Five of 7 from very strong top seven return including sack leader Defense carried torch In 2014

30 percent run plays no gains
Qb had late season injury
No starters return in secondary
Two inexperienced corners huge concern

Like auburn big in opener against Louisville and like the over if points under 60
Petrino has to be worried he could easily lose first three games. Auburn sneaky Houston tean that will test secondary and Clemson. Will be looking to short Louisville early

Hunt qb back and looked healthy in spring he is the glue
Decent kicking game returns
Defense 26 total defense 2014. Great at forcing turnovers
Kicking game should be good

Qb hunt went down early and all the promise went to hell. Glass team
New offensive coordinator will focus on run which Should help take pressure
Only four starters return from decent defense
No wide receiving threats return
NO SCHOLARSHip upper classmen at safety

I hate this team. If Rhode Island has any promise I am hammering.

Wake forest
True sophomore qb played better efficient football at end of season
Defense held all games within two touchdowns except four games
And defense returns seven starters
Line had three starters back which could be negative based on all sacks given up
Kickers return.

Zip skill position
No offense returns
Horrible offensive line return
Starting two redshirt freshman at offensive tackle. Which could end up being a positive

I would look to bet these guys game two at Syracuse if line double digits

Boston college
Great defense returns that was second best in rushing in fbs
Entire df front line back

The offense could suck massively
Here starters return on an option 2014 team that joe had a drop back passer
Offensive line all new could be starting new guys

Expect bc to win patsy games on first two but will be low scoring. Might be value in under first two weeks and value on opponent as don't see where points come from

Virginia Tech
Hokies return 16 starters from 7-6 team that got murdered by injuries in 2014. Played fifth strong rb etc
Skilled starters all return. Qb brewer the question mark. Appeared to hit stride at end of year . Knocking off Bearcats in bowl game
Tech will run and take shots on play action.
Killer defensive blitz happy team returns
Strong up front. Deep secondary to deal with all single coverage situations
Kickers return

No depth wr
Line only returns two starters
Prone to big play in 2014
Safeties in new Pisitions

Hokies bring experience and health against Buckeyes and are healthy. I like Hokies +14 or better

Georgia tech
Come off impressive bowl win over miss st
Best option qb in years returns to lead an offense that ran for 47 td
Four starters back on o line
Strong kicking game
High rated turn over defense return 8 starters

No skill starters return
Defense got killed in 2014 on ground

I see no value in first two games.
Like ga tech game three versus Irish

North Carolina
Love offense
Play fast most plays in cfb in 2014
Qb Williams returns dual threat lead on rushing
All five started back on offensive line when healthy unstoppable
All skill positions return minus te
Chizik brought in to fix dog shit defense. Will be hungry to prove and get back to head job

Poor output from running backs
Kicking game untested new
Six starters return to one of the worst defense on record
Front four on defense young and untested

I see Tar Heels In tons of shootouts.
Pending South Carolina analysis
Experience in kicking game

Brad kaaya nfl qb returns from solid 2014
Both wr return
Defense has promise with nfl de back and mega recruiting classes strong up
No bowl wins under all golden and no ten win seasons. This is it. Feels like Nebraska last year

Don't see value in First two games. Need Nebraska review for game three think this team beatable

Stacked on offense. Qb and top rb and wr return along with 3 of line starters
Experienced kicking game
Arkansas oc joins. Expect heavy running team. Under potential
Michigan state df coordinator joins as head coach. And inherits seven starters
Strong corners return key in bump and run style defense

Despite qb wr not top 100 last year in passing
Struggle to get pressure on qb
Yet another wholesale coaching change

I like this Pittsburgh on paper. Going to wait and see how they come out of gate with new coach

Duke. Fuck duke
Top runner and good Back ups return
Three offensive lineman return only gave up 13 sacks
Qb new. But fast as hell. Red zone qb last year
Very deep and talented in defensive backfield. Play three safeties includes nfl first round pick
Strong kicking game

Pass heavy coach with qb with very questionable arm and not much wr experience
Expect pound ball
Very inexperienced up front on defense. Huge concern

Looking at Tulane to potential upset duke week 1

Qb experience return
Top receiving rb returns to offense that dumps off a lot
Very experienced line returns to run heavy conservative offense
Fourth year for top twenty recruiting class
Strong against run defense returns top tackler

Seven new starters on defense for a team that thrives on blitz.
Inexperienced Secondary will be Exploited

Coach on shaky ground. I like the Bruins to kill virginia in opener
