In a normal year, the likes of SHU, DP, USF, and PC were expected wins, as was home v. RU. While SOME teams will, inevitably finish @ bottom of ACC, it's a lot harder to look at this schedule and pencil in 4-5 wins.
Put another way, ACC was tough conference before latest round of expansion, and it's adding Syr, Pitt, and ND this year. All 3 of those teams earned top-half bids. Next year, this year's NC's replace a middle of the pack ACC program.
This conference will be a ball-buster come 2014-15.
