ACC football media days: Clemson tabbed as favorite
Question of the Day
Now the two are making headlines together again.
“I’ve kept that (article) because it’s just a reminder of what an attitude of belief can do, and when you get the right guys around you, you can do great things,” Swinney said. “And Tajh has just been tremendous since he got here, has grown as a player, has grown as a young man.”
The Tigers and Miami were picked to win their respective divisions and meet in the title game in Charlotte, following a vote of 120 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
The voting results were announced Monday, the second day of the ACC’s two-day preseason media blitz.
Clemson received 102 first-place votes in the Atlantic Division balloting, well ahead of the 18 that reigning league champion Florida State got.
Clemson had been picked second in the Atlantic behind Florida State in each of the four years since — and won it twice in that span.
The Tigers then received 95 votes to 15 for the Seminoles as the eventual ACC champion.
The Hurricanes — who were picked fifth in the 2012 preseason poll — would have played in last year’s ACC title game, if not for self-imposed postseason-ban sanctions over the ongoing NCAA investigation.
“I hope they’re not as inaccurate as they were last year,” Miami coach Al Golden said. “I think, from our standpoint, I hope that the adversity that we encountered and obviously endured the last two years with the NCAA has prepared us for this, and that we’re not really thinking ahead. … We’re internally focused and driven and we’re not worried about what anybody says about us, good or bad.”
Boyd, the ACC player of the year in 2012, broke his own league records with 36 touchdown passes and 46 TDs responsible for. He received 105 votes in the preseason balloting — no other player got more than four.
