ACC Football: Who Is Built to Last?
Without question this ACC football season has been one of craziest in memory -- and there's still a month to go. Most smart people have given up trying to predict week-to-week results and even guessing at how the conference race will end up seems fairly random. But you would think a longer-term forecast would be easier, as in "Which program is in the best shape?"
But is it? Not so much in the ACC. Sure, a team's current situation strongly influences its long-term outlook, but that's not all that clouds the issues in this league. Take into account the following factors: current talent, recruiting strongholds, stability of coaching staff, facilities, and tradition. So many schools that rate near the top of one or more categories lag behind dramatically in others. And the outlook in some areas can change substantially from month to month -- for example, the stability of the coaching staff at Virginia.
But factor it all into the balance and vote. And then comment on which factors are working in Maryland's favor and which are holding the Terps back.
