Clemson has all the experts’ chips to win the ACC Division as the program haven grown in a solid way over the last few years, and now it can become a contender for the national title.
Quarterback Tajh Boyd’s decision to return for his senior season is the difference maker between a good football team, and one that could be a great entering the season. Boyd threw for 3,896 yards and 36 touchdowns (an ACC single-season record) against 13 interceptions, and on his last year he wants nothing but to leave a great mark in school.
However, not everything is as easy as it sounds because Florida State plans to say something about this ongoing favoritism for Clemson.
The Seminoles EJ Manuel to the NFL, but they were expecting that of course; the question is who’s about to take the lead in this squad for the next few years. Coach Jimbo Fisher won’t confirm anything yet, but it seems as it’s freshman Jameis Winston’s job to lose.
“Jameis is a very talented young man,” Fisher said. “He and EJ are different. EJ might run a little better and be a hair bigger. I think Jameis throws the ball a little better overall.”
The Seminoles have four starters returning, all with plenty of experience, but they are not deep enough to make a run to the ACC division title; I mean things could change in a matter of weeks, but that’s the landscape now.
These are the Odds to Win The ACC Atlantic Division:
Boston College +3000
Florida State +100
North Carolina State +2500
Wake Forest +5000
