As I keep hearing good things from practice, my optimism for the season grows. Yet the National experts -- who don't see the world through maroon & gold glasses -- keep pouring cold water on my hope. USA Today released their predictions for FBS teams and have BC going 5-7 (2-6 in the ACC).
Considering the 2-6 ACC record follows the same path as last year, their 5-7 conclusion is not a stretch. If the D regresses and the Offense doesn't improve, it could get worse. But I just don't think it will.
I will have my official predictions closer to the season, but all the talk of young talent has me looking forward to the year.
