Earlier this week, the ACC media released its preseason predictions and picked Pitt to finish sixth out of seven teams in the conference. The Panthers are one of those teams that generally have gotten people to buy into the hype, but that wasn't true for this year, despite returning what should be a very good offense.
With a quarterback with a year of experience under his belt and All-American candidates James Conner and Tyler Boyd on board on offense, it's the defense that has several questions surrounding it. As I've stated before, that unit has to be better if only by default, but it's still a huge area of concern.
We know what the media says, but if you had a vote, where do you expect the Panthers to finish in their seven-team division shared with Miami, North Carolina, Duke, Georgia Tech, Virginia, and Virginia Tech? Vote in the poll below and use the comments to tell us about your vote.
