QB attendance a good sign for the conference

The fact that half of the conference is bringing quarterbacks to the ACC football kickoff this month is an encouraging sign for the league -- especially since arguably the best one (Russell Wilson) isn't even on the list.

I'd caution Virginia fans not to read too much into the fact that Vic Hall is on the list, because that doesn't necessarily mean he's the guy and he's the only guy. In fact, I'd be willing to bet my hotel room there that Hall will politely say he's expecting a good competition from Jameel Sewell and Marc Verica.

This is a much better list than it was last year. Often coaches ship their B-list players because they know they'll say all the right things. You might remember Sean Glennon and Drew Weatherford were trotted out last year. Let's hope these quarterbacks don't suffer the same fate.
