1. Virginia (It should be pretty clear by now that Brian O'Conner is one of the best in the business. Oh...and so is Danny Hultzen.)
2. Georgia Tech (The top spot is up for grabs next weekend if neither team stumbles between now and then)
3. N. Carolina (Solid play all around and the young guys are starting to really impress. A series win over a top 20 team would really validate this bunch)
4. Florida State (FSU would have been in the 3rd spot last week, but they need to refocus. The Saturday Wake game was a real downer)
5. Clemson (The Tigers have played a brutal schedule and have held it together, but need to start taking care of business from here on if they have any hopes of hosting)
6. Miami (This one is easy, just no pop at all. This team is just not the normal threat we've come to expect out of Coral Gables with the bats)
7. Boston College (A scrappy team that has played a brutal schedule, still hasn't played a true home game).
8. Maryland (Another team with tons of upside that has played a tough schedule, may not make the ACC tournament, but a team that will only continue to improve, big series this weekend with Miami)
9. Duke (Decent pitching and hitting, not a pushover, but nothing great to speak of yet...)
10. NC State (Would be in the 9th spot except they lost 2 of 3 to the Devils)
11. Wake Forest (Hey they did beat N. Carolina and flattened FSU 1 out of 3, other than that not much)
12. Virginia Tech (Truly disappointing, A terrible non-conference schedule and no signs of life in the ACC so far...)

The ACC seems to me to be a conference of pairs right now UVA/GT; UNC/FSU; Clemson/Miami; Boston College/Maryland; Duke/State; Wake/Virginia Tech...all of these teams are very close in position and almost interchangeable. You could argue that Virginia Tech has separated itself as the worst team, sorry to say.

There's no doubt that when Virginia travels to Atlanta next weekend it is going to be a big time series, one of the biggest regular season tilts we have seen in recent memory in the ACC.

Looks pretty good. Virginia and Georgia Tech are definitely the 2 best teams. I don't think Clemson or FSU have the pitching and Miami certainly does not have the hitting. UNC is a wildcard right now. They lose 2 of 3 to Wake and that is not acceptable.

Good Breakdown, I think you'll see GT go through a rut pretty soon here with all the freshmen in the lineup. Our starting pitching is stout though, so it might come down to defense.. and ours is spotty at best.

I expect to finish 2-4th in the ACC.

Gotta agree with just about everything you wrote above with 1 exception, that being Clemson. Maybe I haven't done my homework and if that is the case, please correct me.
They played 2 series with top 25 programs,Virginia and USC and came out 1-5. Other than that, have they played a top 50 program? With losses to Eastern Michigan and Presbyterian I am stunned with their ISR and RPI. They have a ton of talent on that team imo, and are capable of getting hot at any moment.

I guess, I was giving Clemson credit for the toughest schedule for the back to back series against South Carolina and Virginia. Although, after week 7 that will probably belong to Florida State, after playing the 3rd game against Florida and having already travelled to UVA. I don't think there is any doubt that Clemson's schedule has been pretty tough to date.
