Wake Up

Defending NCAA champion Wake Forest has been picked by ACC coaches to finish first in the conference. The Demon Deacons, who return nine starters, were named on seven of the nine ballots. Maryland was No. 2, followed by Boston College, the 2007 ACC regular season and tournament champion which received the other two first-place votes.

The remaining order is North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Duke, Clemson and North Carolina State.

The college season kicks off in earnest on Aug. 29, highlighted by Fox Soccer Channel's live coverage of Maryland's opener at UCLA from Home Depot Center at 10 p.m. ET.

FSC, in its fourth year of showing NCAA games, will televise eight women's matches on Thursdays and 12 men's games on Fridays this season.

Wow its been a while since I have seen UVA ranked so low in preseason. Not to mention Va Tech being ranked ahead of UVA...

wonder how VT will do without Nyarko this season. Did the coach line up a bunch of euro students again?

Uhhhhhhhh normally I'd say yes. But the bastardized version the NCAA plays - no.

----------------------------------------

Under MLS's arcane player acquisition rules, wouldn't the Rapids have to offer compensation to Brown University for signing him?

Tech has 15 new players this year, including 5 foreign players. I hope they are as talented as his recent recruits, as we lost a lot of talent and firepower.

Gah! I saw the post title, and thought "stadium news!" But, no.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Guess the Deacons don't have the blues.

"You call me a fool
You say its a crazy scheme
This one's for real
I already bought the dream
So useless to ask me why
Throw a kiss and say goodbye
I'll make it this time
I'm ready to cross that fine line..."

Go Bethany College Bison!

@ Joe Doc:

It may not be hip-hop or punk rock but Steely Dan still kicks out the jams.
Pure freaking genius.
