The ACC Sucks. North Carolina finished 13-4 in conference due to weather cancellations. FSU played their full schedule, finishing 16-5. UNC ends up the number one seed / regular season champs. Garbage. On the bright side there are no rings for regular season champions, just for the tournament. Oh and did I mention the championship is played on UNC's home turf? Garbage. As usual, we're Swofford'd.
ACC Championship Outlook
The Noles are the #2 seed and own a series win over #1 UNC this season. FSU has a great shot to repeat as ACC Champions. Pitching will need to be great and the bats can't go flat. They should reach the finals and then it's a toss up with the Tar Heels, but it definitely doable. The biggest problem for FSU is that they haven't played well away from JoAnne Graf Field. It's especially tough when the ACC Championship is played in Chapel Hill. We'll see how it goes.
