Wrapping up Day 1 at ACC media days

Herzlich Returns To ACC Media Days (2:47)

Mark Schlabach and Heather Dinich talk about Mark Herzlich's return, the UNC investigation and other news from the first day of ACC Media Days. (2:47)

Day 1 is officially in the books.

We put it all into a nifty, one-stop shopping package for you, and there's more coming. There was more media here today than I've ever seen before. More flip-cams. More dot-coms. Radio row was buzzing.

Among several hot topics today were:

1) UNC and agents

2) Everyone else and agents

3) Mark Herzlich's return

4) First media day in eons without Bobby Bowden

5) Mike London taking over at Virginia

Most of the players were very well-spoken, and mum's the word at North Carolina regarding the NCAA investigation. Of course, we're here to talk about football, too, and some official predictions have been made. Here's what my final ballot looked like for predicted order of finish in each division:


1. Florida State

2. Clemson

3. Boston College

4. NC State

5. Wake Forest

6. Maryland


1. Miami

2. Virginia Tech

3. Georgia Tech

4. North Carolina

5. Duke

6. Virginia

Predicted ACC champ: Miami

Predicted ACC Player of the Year: Christian Ponder.

There you have it. The full votes from the media will be tallied tonight and released tomorrow, so check back then. The coaches' interviews begin at 2 p.m. tomorrow.
