Look no further than team offensive and defensive stats.  If you look at where ACC teams rank with respect to all other teams, you see a lot of one-dimensional teams.  Good, but not great.  What do I mean by that?

Off + Def Ranks, ACC teams 

Good Offense

  • Ga Tech
  • Clemson
  • Florida St

 Good Defense

  • Florida St
  • Va Tech
  • Miami
  • Virginia

The only team with both offense and defense had a different problem - apparently a lack of discipline.  I say that because despite being clearly the better team the Seminoles lost to Wake Forest and to Virginia.   If not for those 2 losses the 'Noles would have won the ACC Atlantic division and possibly gone on to face West Virginia in the Orange Bowl in place of Clemson (who did not have a very good defense last year, and the Mountaineers proved).
