We did this exercise two years ago, and several of us (Trevor, Original Greg, Rick H. included) pointed to 16-to-1 shot Clemson as a juicy darkhorse pick (Clemson wound up beating Virginia Tech 38-10 in that year’s title game). So…anybody want to take a stab at a darkhorse this year? Here are the odds:
Florida State 2.5/1
Virginia Tech 7.5/1
North Carolina 8-1
Georgia Tech 9-1
North Carolina State 50-1
Boston College 66-1
Wake Forest 100-1
-Tech cornerback Donaldven Manning has opted to transfer.
-Berman catches up with Luke Hancock, whose whirlwind year has continued.
-Jason Dufner, whose claim to fame is that he’s an emotionless automaton, wins the PGA Championship. I’m for promoting the match play tournament to the fourth major.
-Kyle Busch wins at Watkins Glen.
-Virginia native and ex-Seminole E.J. Manuel has a nice preseason debut for Buffalo.
-The Yankees win on a Brett Gardner walk-off homer, but not before Mariano Rivera blows three straight save chances for the first time in his career. A-Rod hit his first homer of the year, too.
-The Dodgers are unstoppable.
NAME THAT TUNE
Hey, boy you never had much game
Thought I needed to upgrade
So I went and walked away way way
Now, I see you’ve been hanging out
With that other girl in town
Looking like a pair of clowns clowns clowns
