ACC voters pick Canes to finish 2nd in Coastal

They're just preseason predictions by dorky writers like me, but Virginia Tech was picked to defeat Florida State in the ACC title game later this year. Your Miami Hurricanes were picked by only 10 of the 98 voters to win its first ACC title.

Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder was the overwhelming favorite to capture the ACC Player of the Year. UM quarterback Jacory Harris received two votes.

> ATLANTIC DIVISION (first-place votes in parentheses followed by overall votes): 1. Florida State (78) 565; 2. Clemson (16) 479; 3. Boston College (4) 389; 4. N.C. State 283; 5. Wake Forest 203; 6. Maryland 139.

> COASTAL DIVISION: 1. Virginia Tech (62) 532; 2. Miami (20) 444; 3. Georgia Tech (11) 408; 4. North Carolina (5) 379; 5. Duke 169; 6. Virginia 126.

> ACC Player of the Year: 1. Christian Ponder, FSU 45; 2. Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech 16; 3. Tyrod Taylor, Virginia Tech 11; 4. Russell Wilson, N.C. State 6; 4. Robert Quinn, North Carolina 6; 6. Joshua Nesbitt, Georgia Tech 4; 7. Kyle Parker, Clemson 3; 8. Mark Herzlich, Boston College 2; 8. Jacory Harris, Miami 2.
