Hoops - This ACC writer wants you to shut up

Well, you know how every year we say how much the ACC sports media sucks when it comes to preseason hoops picks? You know how we talk about how their #7 pick always seems to excel, including that Jacket team picked 7th in the ACC that ended in a trip to the national championship game. You remember that? Well, this ACC writer wants you to know that Georgia Tech WILL finish 9th and that we need to get used to it. Why? He says that the writers have picked the 9th team 4 years in a row, and 6 out of the last 7. Of course, he fails to mention that picking the 9th team in all years except last season meant picking the last place team - hardly a challenge. Sorry bud, but you'll have to earn your money this season.
