The ACC Media named Florida State's Leonard Hamilton the ACC Coach of the Year. Al finished second. It would have been nice to see him recognized, but I don't think Al cares much about those awards. Skinner finishing so far behind as the runner up is a sign that the media is reaching the point where they take Al's success for granted. How else can you explain only 10 first place votes for a coach who won 9 league games in spite of preseason predictions of an 11th place finish.
Here is the the first of many predictions that BC will finish at the bottom of the Atlantic next season. Will the media ever learn? We should have a very good D and enough talent on offense to compete. Speaking of the Atlantic, the BCI guys debated the rumored division shuffle. My take: why bother? Seriously. If you keep moving things in order for things to make sense or build drama and rivalries, your timing will always be off. You can't force things. Parity and the ebb and flows of a program will keep things unpredictable. My suggestion is keep the divisions as is and let the rivalries build over time. Plus, I don't want to lose Clemson from the schedule!
HD wrote a nice article on the OLine. These guys will carry the team next year. I also eagerly await hearing what Devine has to say about his new players and what changes he plans to make.
