I'm Bringing Midwest Back
After a week-long stint in Kansas City, The Upstate Life finally returned home Saturday night with just enough time to watch Clemson upset Florida State. Coming from a Maryland fan, the ACC as a whole is pretty weak in football this season. The fact that Miami is unranked for the first time in years speaks volumes about the level of competitiveness in the ACC right now. Clemson may in fact be the conference's best team, and despite West Virginia running all over the Terps Thursday night, I'm more than confident Maryland can finish over .500 when it's all said and done. Maryland won't face an offense that dominant the rest of the season, but then again, who knows what kind of threat Florida International will unleash this Saturday (kidding, kidding).
