Florida State will not lose another ACC game
I know alot of people are predicting the demise of the Seminoles after their inexplicable performance at NC State, but I think Florida State will learn from that. This is still a very talented team with an elite defense. That night they got caught up playing not to lose against a Wolfpack team that finally played to it’s a potential. Basically it was the perfect storm of dysfunctional play-calling on the road against a pretty good team. There is still the game at Virginia Tech, but I’ve seen nothing from the Hokies to make me believe they are capable of beating Florida State.
Miami will make its first ACC Championship appearance
Finally the ACC will get the Florida State\Miami ACCCG it thought it would have multiple times when the conference began having its championship game in 2005. The Canes may not be all the way back, but Al Golden has them playing well enough to emerge champions of a down coastal division.
Virginia Tech’s streak of 8 straight 10 win seasons will come to an end.
This isn’t exactly a earth shattering prediction. At 3-3 the Hokies would have to win 7 more games. With road trips to Miami and Clemson and as we’ve mentioned FSU at home, nope it’s not happening. This will end up being one of the worst Hokies teams in recent memory.
Georgia Tech and Duke will make a bowl games
They Yellow Jackets at 2-4 have a lot of work to extend their bowl streak that started in 1997. It’s almost a virtual certainty that Georgia Tech will lost at Georgia as well. That means the Jackets must go 4-1 in their other 5 games. The thing is Georgia Tech is still putting up tons of points and yards ranking in the top 30 nationally in both categories. If Al Groh was truly the problem with the defense which I believe he was to a certain extent, they will be able to beat Boston College, BYU, and Duke at home and get a road win at Maryland or UNC.
Duke needs but 1 win to get bowl eligible. They are going to do it. David Cutcliffe has his team playing with a lot of confidence, and I’m eyeing the home game on October 20th as the day it may happen.

Although Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher built his team to win it all this year, he doesn't think it's a now-or-never situation.
Florida State still has a lot it can accomplish and can finish the season on high note despite being upset Saturday at North Carolina State. Even a national championship, though a longshot right now, isn't totally out of the question.
Reading the team play the "disrespect" angle all week has me a little uneasy. We just lost to Army. No one should respect at this point. I would have preferred if the guys had just said bland things and came out firing today. Either way, I hope they are motivated and prepared. Florida State is going to want a decisive victory to make up for their loss to NC State. I just...
Junior forward Okaro White put on display in FSU's Seminole Madness on Friday, winning both the 3-point contest and the dunk contest.
The Seminoles are making their final preparations for the 2012-13 season as they try to build on their ACC Tournament title from last year.
Strength in numbers! That's what you need to tell yourself. Go watch the game with other BC fans and if it becomes a Florida State beatdown, you will be able to commiserate with other like-minded Eagle fans.

Now that Florida State has dropped from the ranks of the unbeatens, every team in the ACC has at least one loss overall, but there are still three teams that are undefeated in league play. Maryland, at 3-2, is 1-0 in the ACC after last week's win. Miami is a more impressive 4-2 overall and 3-0 in the league. But if the season ended today, a 5-1 team with a 2-0 conference mark...
Both BC and Florida State are coming off of devastating losses although for very different reasons. Our loss felt like rock bottom. Their loss was more about a bubble bursting once again. Their return to the elite is delayed another year.This game is about how each side responds to their disappointment?Hot Seat Thermometer Things can't get any hotter for Spaz. Parents are taking...
Florida State running-back Chris Thompson is at the top of his game and having a season to remember for the Seminoles’, but coach Jimbo Fisher knows the importance of getting back the rotation that was so effective in the first four games this season.
Florida State had the nation's no. 4 ranked total defense heading into Saturday evening's game against Boston College. The 'Noles held BC to just 225 yards and seven points in another dominant performance.
