The ACC is Clemson and everyone else. Really, the intrigue in the ACC this year is just who will win the Coastal…and get blown out by Clemson in the ACC title game. Clemson is going to be really, really good again.
The Tigers will do it a little differently this year. There offense will be better than the defense…that’s going to mean some big spreads for Clemson.
Who can challenge them? Someone always goes to the wire with Clemson. Clemson’s toughest two games will be over by the time we hit the middle of September. If they’re undefeated then, they should run the table rather easily.
Not sure who decided it was a good idea to have Louisville get thrashed by Notre Dame in primetime opening weekend but it’s not gonna look good for the ACC that night.
