I don't know how much of a surprise Wake Forest will be considering all of the ACC coaches are well aware of the talent that Jim Grobe has amassed in Winston-Salem. But I think the Deacs have the potential to finish higher than 9th in the conference...perhaps as high as 7th. I think that might surprise some folks, especially if teams like Virginia Tech or Georgia Tech or NC State or Maryland finished below them.

I agree, Lucy. Wake sure made a believer out of me when they killed us in Winston-Salem. However, they went on to lose the rest of the games on their schedule and only finished with 6 wins.

I think Tech will shock some people...probably in a good way for 4 games(last year it was vs. Auburn, UMD, and FSU) and in a bad way for 3 games(last year it was vs. Clemson, Duke, and BYU)

So you never really know 03-wink

I do agree that Tech will surprise some folks. Ball can only get better with experience. What do you guys have in the way of skill guys and OL returning?

OL - 3 guards(did a rotation last year), one will play center and a very experienced tackle.

Skill guys as in athletes?

RB - P.J. Daniels-Jr. (lead ACC in rushing), Rashuan Grant- R-Fr.(ranked #1 All Purpose back his senior year by Rivals
WR - Nate Curry - Sr. Had a great Freshman year but got injured, Levon Thomas - Sr. Runs BACKWARDS AND NOT FORWARDS :bang: , and Freshman Calvin Johnson
DL - Everyone back(Henderson, Anoai, Parker, Wrotto) - one of our strongest points
LB - Wilkerson - our weakest points
DB - Butler, Houston, Scott, and Landry(VERY GOOD) - probably best in ACC

I would argue Clemson has the best secondary in the ACC ... at least top 2.

GT certainly has the potential for a surprise year if certain pieces fall into place.

With college FB these days, who knows? I'm as scared as ever for my Tigers.

I take Tech's DB's over Clemsons ANYDAY, but thats just me 03-wink

James Butler - Thorpe Award Watch List, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd team(different sources) Pre-season All America.
Rueben Houston - 2 year starter.
Dawan Landry - Had breakout year last year. Him and Butler make a nice pair of safetys.
Kenny Scott - returned kicks last year, one of fastest guys on the team.
