    What is Athlon Sports? Anyway i think there rankings are terrible and not just because Boston College is ranked 5th in the Atlantic. It seems like they are just trying to make the "I told you so" prediction with teams like North Carolina. I'm not saying BC will dominate the Atlantic but i can't see them finishing any worse then 3rd. Year after year they are underrated, and year after year they have competitive seasons that end with bowl wins. I don't see that changing this year

    Atlantic looks perfect to me, as does the final outcome. However, I don't like the UNC #2 thing in the Coastal. I think they are probably #4, behind VT, Miami, and GT.

    Don't sleep on UNC. They are returning 18 starters and they played much better last year than their record indicated.

    UVA, lost by 2.
    @ VT, lost by 7.
    Miami, lost by 6.
    Maryland, lost by 3.
    @ NC State, lost by 4.
    @ GT, lost by 2.

    Butch Davis is an excellent coach. They'll win some of those close games in '08.

    I think these rankings are fair based on these teams 'on paper.' Too bad they don't play the games on paper though. Maybe Clemson will actually win a big game this year.

    a magazine, they do preseason magazines for all kinds of sports, for college they release magazines by division.

    Anyways if Clemson's stars play well, they will be tough to beat.

    I think VT is not going to be that good, my title game is Clemson vs N.C.
    YES

    I don't think he is sucking up to me, why would he? If he picked them to be 1st i'm sure he has his reasons. Maybe he feels that BC is a safe pick because they are consistently good every year no matter who leaves or who comes in? Maybe he feels like Clemson won't win because they always tend to under perform. Who knows...

    BC likes to tank some games they should have won too so let's not just throw Clemson under the bus here.

    2004:
    Lost at WF, at Pitt, and at home to Syracuse
    2005:
    Lost at UNC
    2006:
    Lost at NC State
    2007:
    Lost at home to FSU, at Maryland

    Those were all games they were favored in. I mean seriously, last year, BC choked those back-to-back loses against FSU and UMD.

    Trust me, i know. I was just posing some reasons of why Baller might feel that way. I don't think the FSU game was that bad last year, but the Maryland game absolutely killed them. Still, even with those losses they managed to get to the ACC Championship game

    Thank you, Saint Brian. I still don't see what would make someone take BC over Clemson pre-season. BC lost a great QB and doesn't really have a great one stepping in. Maybe not even a good one.
