The Hoos may not be winning games...but at least Hoo fans seem to be pretty damn good at picking them!
You guys all know the rules by now, but in case you don't: Post your picks for the 5 ACC matchups this week down in the comments - there is no line on the Pitt/ODU game. (Remember, we are picking against the spread; if you pick UVA in the UVA-Duke matchup, you actually picking them to "cover the spread" and win by more than 2.5 points). Here's a link to last week's competition.
At the end of the season, the three commenters with the best records win "Keep Calm and Streak the Lawn" t-shirts! You need to pick 80% of games to qualify for that coveted prize.
The Miami-UNC game is a Thursday nighter this week, so your pick for that one must be in before kickoff!
Here are our week 7 picks and comments:

|Miami (-8.5) @ UNC||Miami||The Tar Heels have been disappointing thus far, and better have improved quick during their bye week before undefeated Miami comes to Chapel Hill|
|Syracuse @ GT (-7)||GT||Welcome to the ACC, Syracuse. Deal with the Yellow Jackets running a strange offense full of false starts and illegal blocks|
|Maryland (-6.5) @ Wake Forest||Maryland||If they could beat us, they could beat anybody|
|FSU (-3) @ Clemson||Clemson||In the game of the week (season?!) surprised to see Clemson as a home dog. We'll take the points in Death Valley|
|Duke @ Virginia (-2.5)||UVA||It's (almost) unanimous. Your STL team <3 the Hoos! (besides Sully) (You won't see us favored again :( )|
And here's the standings thus far - Good luck all!
