The Confidential’s Year in Review
It has been an interesting year for the Confidential. The A.C.C. continues to be extremely interesting, with Florida State and Clemson representing the football interests very well over the past few years, and Duke, Virginia, and Syracuse all doing their share on the basketball court. North Carolina and Duke are basketball schools with very good football teams now, while Notre Dame dabbles in providing the ACC with reasons to be at least part-time proud. And all schools are doing a great job hiring new football and basketball coaches. And that is just the revenue sports. The non-revenue sports are dominating (see Learfield cup article).
For the Confidential, we are always looking for some additional school correspondents to provide a new flavor and humanize our rivals. We have had some come and go, but special thanks to all those who contribute as correspondents or commenters. The fantasy football season was awesome, as it went down to the final week.
It is always interesting to wonder what 2016 will hold for the ACC. We can expect the usual suspects to dominate their respective sports, such as Duke basketball and Florida State football. But will Babers or Mendenhall turn Syracuse and Virginia football around? Will Richt and Fuentes restore Miami and Virginia Tech to their glory years atop the Coastal? Will Buzz Williams and Danny Manning do wonders for Virginia Tech and Wake Forest hoops? Nobody knows. But it will be a fun ride.
Thank you for reading and contributing in 2015. We look forward to seeing you in 2016.
