I am that kinda guy who likes to buy Lindy's and SportingNews magazines for the preseason.  They show their predictions on there and when I bought SportingNews I was disgusted.  Let's compare SportingNews' predictions to what really happened.

 

       SportingNews / Reality

 Atlantic

  1. Clemson / Boston College
  2. Wake Forest / Florida State
  3. Florida State / Maryland
  4. NC State / Wake Forest
  5. Boston College / Clemson
  6. Maryland / NC State

Coastal

  1. Virginia Tech / Virginia Tech
  2. Miami / Georgia Tech
  3. North Carolina / North Carolina
  4. Georgia Tech / Miami
  5. Virginia / Virginia
  6. Duke / Duke

Dead on in the Coastal but WAYYY OFF IN THE ATLANTIC.  They picked Clemson to be #1 and they finished #5, they picked Wake to be #2 and they finished #4, they picked FSU to be #3 and they were close, they picked NC State to be #4 and they finished #6 (last), they picked Boston College to be #5 and they finished #1, they picked Maryland to be #6 and they finished #3.  WOW!!!

 

My Picks / Reality

Atlantic

  1. Wake Forest / BC
  2. Clemson / FSU
  3. Maryland / Maryland
  4. Florida State / Wake
  5. Boston College / Clemson
  6. NC State / NC State

Coastal

  1. Virginia Tech / Virginia Tech
  2. North Carolina / GT
  3. Miami / UNC
  4. Georgia Tech / Miami
  5. Virginia  / Virginia
  6. Duke / Duke

Now, I might add an extra comment because I couldn't remember where I had UNC and Miami at the beginning of preseason.  Anyway, I might have put UNC at #3 I don't remember.  Anyway, SportingNews got 4/12 right and I got 5/12 right, maybe 6/12.  How does a normal football fan do this?  Whooo!!!!

 

Anyway my main point is this, some sport magazines are crap.
