Let the discomfort borne of expectations begin.
ACC Now: Your Atlantic Division favorite:
Yeah, it's N.C. State.
The Wolfpack has the best quarterback in the conference, two NFL-level game-changers on defense and a smart coach.
Technically, State finished last in the division in '08 but it was only one game behind the winner (Boston College). All six teams finished either 5-3 or 4-4.
Expect the same competitiveness this season. Which means you pick the team with the best QB (his right knee willing)? And eight home games.
We aren't there yet from an overall talent standpoint, but I'm still having a hard time disagreeing with JP. Everybody's got flaws, but nobody else has the Russell Wilson trump card.
