Q: If a team is picked by a ‘sleeper’ and ‘one to surprise’ by a large number of experts, is the team really a ‘surprise’?
The N&O’s Joe Giglio kicked off the media’s quiet love affair with NC State when he picked the Pack to win the Atlantic Division back in early May and the hits really haven’t slowed down much as major media arms like The Sporting News have followed up on the positive direction of the program and ESPN keep talking about you being ‘a darkhorse’.
Over the weekend I came across two multimedia items of interest.
First, check out Joe Ovies’ interview at The Wizard of Odds by clicking here. Ovies does a very good job of appropriately defending ACC Football to the doubting Wiz before he chooses NC State to win the Atlantic Division.
Next, check out the following video from ESPN college football expert Mark Schlabach. At about the three minute mark Schlabach re-emphasizes the comments that we already shared with you from earlier in the summer.
Since we’re talking about this topic, we have opened a new poll asking for your Atlantic Division predictions. For the record, I voted for Clemson.
Please feel free to use the comments sections for other links and news that you run across to discuss today.
