Maryland Picked To Finish Last In ACC Media Preseason Poll

A 2-10 record clearly doesn't buy you very much respect in the preseason. This isn't exactly an earthshattering insight, but it's worth remembering from time to time. 

Like now. After a dreadful 2009 season, Maryland was picked to finish in sixth place in the ACC Atlantic Division in the preseason media poll. Only Virginia, which plays in the Coastal Division, received fewer votes than the Terps. 

The full poll is as follows (via Steve Yanda of the Washington Post).

Atlantic Division

1) Florida State (565)
2) Clemson (479)
3) Boston College (389)
4) N.C. State (283)
5) Wake Forest (203)
6) Maryland (139)

Coastal Division

1) Virginia Tech (532)
2) Miami (444)
3) Georgia Tech (408)
4) North Carolina (379)
5) Duke (169)
6) Virginia (126)
