My bad, people.
I won't bore you with the details. Just know that I'm way behind schedule with these power rankings, and I know it.
So I'm going to borrow a page from Bill Simmons and do what he does when he hasn't had time to really put together a comprehensive NFL picks column: I'm going to massively abbreviate things.
How abbreviated? Let's see if we can pay homage to Twitter and give 140 characters or less to each school, shall we?
NO. 1 FLORIDA STATE
@accsports - Running the table looks very likely at this point. So FSU fans should be rooting VERY hard for Stanford tonight. #BCS Fun
Record: 8-0, 6-0 ACC
Previous Rank: 1
Last week: Won 41-14 over Miami
This week: Saturday, noon at Wake Forest
NO. 2 CLEMSON
@accsports - 59-10? Now that's more like the Clemson we thought we knew. Timely bye week before big Thursday night game vs. Georgia Tech.
Record: 8-1, 6-1 ACC
Previous Rank: 2
Last week: Won 59-10 at Virginia
This week: Bye week
NO. 3 MIAMI
@accsports - Clemson & Maryland both suffered FSU hangovers after getting drilled by the Noles. Miami has no time to mope with the Hokies coming to town.
Record: 7-1, 3-1 ACC
Previous Rank: 3
Last week: Lost 41-14 at FSU
This week: Saturday, 7 p.m. vs. Virginia Tech
NO. 4 GEORGIA TECH
@accsports - Have the Jackets turned things around? Or just taken advantage of a soft stretch in the schedule? We'll know more next Thursday at Clemson.
Record: 6-3, 5-2 ACC
Previous Rank: 4
Last week: Won 21-10 over Pitt
This week: Bye
NO. 5 DUKE
@accsports - Here's a new one. How will Duke handle expectations and the role of the favorite? The current Vegas line is Duke -10 over N.C. State.
Record: 6-2, 2-2 ACC
Previous Rank: 5
Last Week: Bye week
This Week: Saturday, 4 p.m. vs. N.C. State
NO. 6 VIRGINIA TECH
@accsports - Hokies may be in a downward spiral, but not sure I can move them down. Head-to-head win keeps Hokies ahead of UNC ... for now.
Record: 6-3, 3-2 ACC
Previous Rank: 6
Last Week: Lost 34-27 at BC
This Week: Saturday, 7 p.m. at Miami
NO. 7 NORTH CAROLINA
@accsports - UNC's made it through the rough part of its schdule, but w/out Renner. Will his absence actually simplify the Heels' offensive approach?
Record: 3-5, 2-3 ACC
Previous Rank: 7
Last Week: Won 28-19 at N.C. State
This Week: Saturday, 12:30 p.m. vs. Virginia
NO. 8 BOSTON COLLEGE
@accsports - Usually roll my eyes when coaches talk about "instilling a new attitude." But how else to explain the Eagles' rebound in 2013?
Record: 4-4, 2-3 ACC
Previous Rank: 8
Last Week: Won 34-27 over Virginia Tech
This Week: Saturday, 3:30 at New Mexico St.
NO. 9 MARYLAND
@accsports - The bye week gave QB C.J. Brown time to recover from his concussion. But Brown still has to make do w/out Stefon Diggs and Deon Long.
Record: 5-3, 1-3 ACC
Previous Rank: 10
Last Week: Bye
This Week: Saturday, 3:30 vs. Syracuse
NO. 10 SYRACUSE
@accsports - I've rolled my eyes every time Scott Shafer has talked about "hard-nosed" football. But I can't find a better way to describe his team.
Record: 4-4, 2-2 ACC
Previous Rank: 12
Last Week: Won 13-0 over Wake Forest
This Week: Saturday, 3:30 p.m. at Maryland
NO. 11 PITT
@accsports - Pitt's rushing total for its past three ACC games? 26 yards. That's it. Tom Savage's sacks depress that total but still ...not good.
Record: 4-4 overall, 2-3 ACC
Previous Rank: 11
Last Week: Lost 21-10 at Georgia Tech
This Week: Saturday, 8 p.m. vs. Notre Dame
NO. 12 WAKE FOREST
@accsports - Bummed about Campanaroooo. But my grief over my favorite ACC fantasy WR's injury is nothing compared to the loss the Wake offense feels.
Record: 4-5, 2-3 ACC
Previous Rank: 9
Last Week: Lost 13-0 at Syracuse
This Week: Saturday, noon vs. FSU
NO. 13 N.C. STATE
@accsports - Man, seems like Dave Doeren was pretty rough on QB Brandon Mitchell after the UNC loss. And is this the time to start another QB competition?
Record: 3-5, 0-5 ACC
Previous Rank: 13
Last Week: Lost 28-19 to UNC
This Week: Saturday, 4 p.m. at Duke
NO. 14 VIRGINIA
@accsports - I've got 140 characters to come up with something positive to say about UVa football ... Man, I've got nothing right now. Sorry.
Record: 2-7 (0-5 ACC)
Previous Rank: 14
Last Week: Lost 59-10 to Clemson
This Week: Saturday, 12:30 p.m. at UNC
