Chris Graham: My Preseason ACC Football Ballot

chris graham acc footballSurprise of surprises landed in my email inbox on Friday – a 2020 ACC Football Preseason All-ACC Team ballot. Is this a sign that we’re actually going to do this?

OK, so, I’m a superstitious sort, so let me take that back, and just say, the ACC asked me to fill out a preseason All-ACC football ballot, and that felt normal, and normal is good.

Anyway, I probably rushed my way through it, and I’m sure I put too many UVA and Clemson guys on the teams, but, so be it.
