ACC Blogger Preseason Ballot Results

The blogosphere has spoken and apparently this year we contribute little more to the conversation than what the mainstream media predicted. The only difference between this year's media picks and the ACC blogger picks was a flip-flop of Miami and North Carolina in the Coastal standings. On second thought, perhaps that fact is significant given all the Virginia Tech voters and their disdain for da U.

It's also clear that the weight of preseason expectations has shifted from the Atlantic to the Coastal Division this year, with Virginia Tech the overwhelming pick to three-peat, Jonathan Dwyer the offensive player of the year and Jason Worilds the defensive player of the year.
