*I'm projecting Miami as the champion of the Coastal division via a head-to-head win over Virginia Tech. Watch out for the U this season – that is one hell of a favorable schedule.
*I really liked what Florida State brought into last season, too, but I'll roll with the Seminoles again this year. Frankly, I loved what I saw out of FSU in the back half of 2016.
I'm even willing to back them in that titanic opener versus Alabama. I have the 'Noles dropping their final game of the season at Florida, but that is it.
*Do I feel good pegging Louisville at 10-2? Not exactly.
On the other hand, I like the fact that the Cardinals are catching Clemson early in the year. They also miss Miami and Virginia Tech in divisional crossover games, which has to be seen as a plus this year. (Nice to have Virginia as a permanent opponent.)
*I've offered my thoughts on Clemson this season already.
*That's a whole lot of 6-6.
*Have to imagine we'll be bidding adieu to Steve Addazio if Boston College's season plays out this way.
