The ACC media poll is out and Pitt was picked fifth in the Coastal Division. Wait, who’s in the ACC Coastal Division? Let’s take a look:
(First place votes in parenthesis)
|2.||Virginia Tech (27)||654|
|3.||North Carolina (22)||649|
|4.||Georgia Tech (6)||522|
I can’t say I disagree strongly with these rankings though I’m not sure that UNC or Georgia Tech really deserved any first-place votes. However both programs are in a stronger position than Pitt (for now). Considering that it’s only year two of Paul Chryst’s tenure, breaking in a new starting RB tandem and a new QB, I’ll be happy with 7 wins and a bowl game.
