Duke picked last in pre season ACC poll

SONY DSCGREENSBORO, N.C. -  The pre season ACC Football projected standings came out this morning and the media once again picked the Duke Blue Devils last in the Coastal Division.  In fact, it’s a bit worse this year in that with Pitt and Syracuse joining the ACC, it puts Duke is 7th place as opposed to 6th.  Only time will tell if David Cutcliffe and his troops can prove that the media is underrating them and the head coach is about to take to the air waves for radio before the print media gets hold of him,

Duke was represented by Anthony Boone and Ross Cockrell yesterday and Cockrell is expected to make the 2013 All ACC Team which will be voted on later today.  It is also worth noting Duke finished just two voting points behind Virginia.

Here are the projected standings.
