Might as well comment on this in in real time. Schedule is due to be released at 9 a.m. EST.
Will Pitt get hosed and get stuck with Clemson, ND and FSU out of the gate? What about the non-con game? Will it be a warm-up or a cool-down? Will Miami be at the end of the season as always? Without the benefit of a few tune-up games, you’d think the early season advantage this season would swing towards more experienced teams who have not changed coordinators. (Read: Pitt …although Clemson and ND have stability as well. Miami and FSU on the other hand have had some turnover.)
I can tell you one thing, no matter what gets published, I would expect a lot to complain about. As we’ve discussed, Pitt will always be marginalized in a league founded and run out of North Carolina.
Meanwhile, here is a little levity for you until the actual schedule is announced. It appears she is a UNC alum as the ‘Heels are the only ACC blueblood not being trolled.
Added 9:11 AM
And here is the schedule. Not bad actually. Not bad at all.
