Instead of Texting Pick’em: Week 4

As strange as it might seem this early in the season, the Coastal Division race faces a pivotal moment this weekend.

Virginia Tech, the preseason favorite to win the ACC, and Miami, the hottest team in the conference (and maybe the country), square off in Blacksburg on Saturday. After their first two wins over Florida State and Georgia Tech, the Hurricanes could run away with the division if they can knock off the Hokies this weekend. Both of us think VT won’t let that happen. That should probably make Miami fans happy since I’ve picked against the 2-0 ‘Canes in their other two games.

Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets are trying to avoid falling into a big hole in the division when they face undefeated North Carolina. The Ramblin’ Wreck has looked like a wreck in its last three halves of football, so Jimmy and I are each taking the Tar Heels.

As for the Instead of Texting picks race, Jimmy extended his lead to two games last week (thank you again, Miami). I’ve got a chance to break even with a couple of games this week — or fall even further behind.

    I think it’s too early to write off Georgia Tech. UNC hasn’t been awe-inspiring (granted, being in Japan and “watching” the games via ESPN’s game tracker thing doesn’t make me the best judge). Also being at Tech and needing a win, like the other Tech, I think they’ll pull through.

    I think you’ll stay put this week, Jeremy. I think Wake will beat BC, but TCU is going to sweep its ACC schedule (Outside of FSU, the ACC isn’t ready to play with those big boys from the Mountain West yet (: ).

    I’m really interested to see how Tech plays today. I get the feeling a good part of the problem against Miami was that they were just tired after playing so much in two weeks. Despite what Johnson is saying, though, I think teams are getting a better handle on how to defend his offense.

    UNC looked pretty good to me last week against ECU, although I didn’t catch the 12-10 UConn game the week before.

    I went back and forth a lot on TCU-Clemson. I won’t be surprised if TCU wins that one out.
