Hey, where are the BCMike preseason predictions?

Here you go, BCMike. Bask in the glory of your preseason prediction comments ... emphasis mine.

"I have no idea why Jeff thinks UVA is going to be 2nd in the division this year. I, like many, are expecting UNC to be quite good this season. VaTech is still on top of the Coastal, but I like UNC and GaTech, respectively, following the Hokies. Duke is always on bottom which leaves UVA 4th.

While Wake and Clemson are legit teams and will be very tough competitors in the Atlantic this year, I think that Wake, Clemson, and BC all tie for the title and BC ranks 2nd after the shakeout. I think BC beats Clemson, but Clemson goes on to represent the Atlantic in the CG and goes to a better bowl (marking the fourth straight year BC finishes with a better or equal record as Clemson, beating Clemson, and going to a lesser bowl than Clemson)."

I mean, hey, I predicted the Eagles would go to the Music City Bowl, so I'm not complaining. :)
