Here it is: my official prediction. At a very high level, I know the talent is young, but I think it is on par with what we've had the past few years. I think the schedule is tougher on paper than it is on the field. My biggest issues are I don't trust Addazio to manage tight games and I don't expect Brown to make any sort of leap. Therefore we are what we've been under Addazio.
Virginia Tech. Loss. My guess is this will be like the opener against GT a few years ago. BC blows a winnable game.
Richmond. Win. Should be easy. Just don't hurt Dillon.
Kansas. Win. Closer than we want, but still a BC win.
at Rutgers. Win. Play smart, run Dillon a lot and take the road 'W.'
Wake Forest. Win. It will be back and forth, but we do enough at home.
at Louisville. Loss. I think we probably have more depth and maybe more talent. I am betting we let them hang around and steal a game.
NC State. Loss. I don't think much of Doeren, so it is frustrating to watch him build a better program.
at Clemson. Loss. I think we scare them early, then they pull away.
at Syracuse. Win. This has been a weird series under Addazio. I expect more of the same this year.
Florida State. Win. A quasi-upset. This gets everyone fired up.
at Notre Dame. Loss. On the road, against a highly ranked team. What do you expect Addazio to do?
at Pitt. Loss. This is the heartbreaker. Addazio has another chance to break through and doesn't.
6-6 (3-5 in ACC play) will be enough to get us to the Military Bowl where we beat Navy to get to seven frustrating wins.
