Quick! Which division is Pitt in? Atlantic? Coastal? Coastal? Atlantic? Bzzzzp! Time’s up.
The correct answer is… (flips to preview guide) Coastal. Yes, of course. Coastal. Knew it all the time. Just like I already know who is in what division without question.
Okay, it’s going to take a while. But if I can learn to type Krzyzewski without double-checking I can master this.
Okay, the ACC media made their picks for the Atlantic and Coastal Divisions.
Pitt was placed in a solid fifth in the Coastal Division.
Here are the division predictions.
|ACC Championship Votes|
|2.||Florida State (18)||731|
|2.||Virginia Tech (27)||654|
|3.||North Carolina (22)||649|
|4.||Georgia Tech (6)||522|
Looks like the media is rather convinced on who will be the top-4 of the Coastal. Just not the order. The Atlantic is a little more clearcut for who are the best teams.
After years of following Big East media days, the biggest shock to me is seeing that there were some 120 media votes for football. Even in the Big East basketball side with 16 teams, I doubt there were 120 media voters.
Guess Pitt has some extra motivation with the whole, “no body believes in us” storyline.
