    It's that time of year again, the time to pull out the old grill, that cooler that will hold 4 cases of your favorite brew, and of course that hat, you know the one we are talking about, the one you wear to the first game of the year, you can already hear the scalpers, "TWO TICKETS, TWO TICKETS RIGHT HERE!" You can already smell those hotdogs and hamburgers coming from the tailgaters outside the stadium. You feel as strong as Superman as you enter your home stadium. You smirk at the visiting team as you make sure they look at your painted face, your gigantic foam hand, that team jersey you just bought. You high five your buddies as you walk the stairs to your seats you just purchased for the season, the PA booms, now introducing "insert your favorite team here" the place go nuts, the stadium shakes, your heart begins to thump as for the first time this season the band plays the fight song. You jump, you scream, then it happens, the one thing every fan waits for every year...KICKOFF.

    This year is no different. Before the OFFL EAST kicks off, we're gonna break down the teams you will see on Saturday. So sit back, relax, and get ready for war. This season is gonna be a fight.

    FSU SEMINOLES
    The Noles are back, at least that's what everyone is saying so far. Coming off two horrible 7-6 seasons, the Noles look to rebound. Their last ACC Title came in 2005, and they barely won it then. Their new Coach "Amp" to most has really turned the program around already, from 2007 to present, their running game, oh yea, they didn't have one, was awful. They averaged just 90 yards per game. "This year is different fellas, FSU is no longer 1 dimensional. We come prepared, and we come to win." Stated Amp at a shell practice. "This is the old FSU, the defense is down right wicked and we have more than one gamebreaker out on the field this year."

    THE REASON FSU WILL BE TOUGH
    Their D, it always keep them in games, CB's for FSU are known for two things, SPEED and SPEED. One CB was heard saying "the call us Criminoles because we steal your dreams." They have stolen plenty.

    THE REASON THEY WON'T
    Their offensive line is young, actually the youngest in the NATION. They have never seen playing time together, so their RB's might not see much daylight, and quite a bit of the ground.

    KEY MATCHUP
    MIAMI - Every time these two teams meet, it usually decides who goes to the ACC TITLE GAME and who doesn't, throw in hatred and a few missed field goals, and you have yourself one of the greatest in state rivalries to date.

    MIAMI HURRICANES
    The "U" is trying to become a football team again, once a former powerhouse and boasting the Nations longest home winning streak, Miami is looking to their new HC Bondzai, to bring them back to National Championship contenders. Their corners are lacking a bit, but they have a technically sound D squad all the way around. Their QB's Mavre and Harris are great, and Mavre has even been compared to..."Tebow" Harris is a run and gun type QB who can really make linebackers look stupid. And has a cannon for a shoulder.

    THE REASON THEY WILL BE TOUGH
    The Dual QB system, Coaches from other teams are gonna lose sleep trying to prepare for both of them.

    THE REASON THEY WON'T
    Corners are good but they don't have the speed, former famous "U" corners did. There are no Sean Taylors in this class

    KEY MATCHUP
    FSU - You already saw it once, do you need to read it twice?

    NORTH CAROLINA TARHEELS
    The Heels come in as underdogs, they have a great basketball team, but this is football. The Tar Boys have their work cut out for them this year. With the re-surgence of FSU, and Miami, and Clemson already being a powerhouse, if they want to go to the orange bowl, they have their work cut out for them.

    THE REASON THEY WILL BE TOUGH
    North Carolina has been recruiting quite well lately, they've been pulling recruits from everywhere even middle and south florida.

    THE REASON THEY WON'T
    NC is looking at a new offensive system, the spread, they have the heart, just not the receivers. Look for alot of man coverage and blitzes to the QB. Hope UNC has a good backup.

    KEY MATCHUP
    EVERY ACC OPPONENT MINUS DUKE.

    CLEMSON TIGERS
    With one of the best offenses in the nation, look for the Tigers to be ready to take on all comers, they have two of the very best RB's in the nation, along with very good receivers and a sound QB. Their D is tough and deep throughout the roster. Clemson is gonna be a good one this season.

    THE REASON THEY WILL BE TOUGH
    Clemsons backfield is awesome plain and simple. Look for them to suck linebackers in on play fakes all day to open up the deep ball.

    THE REASON THEY WON'T
    The rest of the ACC is gunning for them, look for every ACC team to pull out all the stops.

    KEY MATCHUP
    The rest of the ACC minus DUKE and North Carolina

    ACC TITLE GAME PREDICTION:
    CLEMSON vs GEORGIA TECH

    Nicely done AMP. I like the scene you set in the beginning it brought me into that parking lot! Good luck this season ACC, and watch out for the 'Noles.

    AMP and FSU are like the ocean... NEVER turn your back on the ocean... :)
