Blue Ribbon ACC previews
By ESPN.com staff
If you guys haven't seen the Blue Ribbon ACC previews yet, they're definitely worth checking out. You can sample the Clemson and Miami previews, and take a look at the preseason all-conference picks.
There's a good possibility that Boston College could have the offensive and defensive players of the year in Montel Harris and Luke Kuechly. If UNC's Quinton Coples reaches his potential this season, I think he'll be hard to ignore for the defensive honor. He and Kuechly should be two of the best defenders in the country, but there's no question Kuechly already is.
The voting for both awards is going to be tough this year, especially for the preseason ballots later this month at the ACC's media days in Pinehurst. The folks at Blue Ribbon have already cast their votes. Will Harris and Kuechly be able to get the Eagles back to the ACC title game?
