Poll Results: Preseason Preview

6 days until the return of Boston College football, or 1 Jeff Smith.

Here are the results from our most recent sidebar polls. Most readers believe the Eagles will finish 2nd in the Atlantic, yet a majority of readers also believe the Eagles will repeat as Atlantic Division champs? Not sure what to make of that.

Regardless, it's clear our readers believe BC is going to exceed the MSM's expectations this season. Virginia Tech is the presumptive team to come out of the Coastal and repeat as division champs. Virginia Tech did lose a lot of players this season, but due to the general suckitude of the rest of the Coastal, the Hokies are the easy pick from the other side of the conference.

We'll have our take on how we see the ACC playing out this season on Wednesday.
