Not only did UVA have another bad week...but so did all of us here. Yikes!
You guys all know the rules by now, but in case you don't: Post your picks for the 7 ACC matchups this week down in the comments - there is no line on the Pitt/ODU game. (Remember, we are picking against the spread; if you pick VT in the VT-Duke matchup, you actually picking them to "cover the spread" and win by more than 13.5 points. If you pick VT and you didn't pick UVA....you may just be a Hokie). Here's a link to last week's competition.
At the end of the season, the three commenters with the best records win "Keep Calm and Streak the Lawn" t-shirts! You need to pick 80% of games to qualify for that coveted prize.
No Thursday nighter this week, so picks are due at noon Saturday.
Here are our week 8 picks and comments:

|GT (-10) @ Virginia||GT||GT||UVa||GT||GT||UVA||UVA||GT||GT|
|Wake Forest @ Miami (-23.5)||Wake Forest||After covering (and beating) Maryland last week, we'll ride the Demon Deacon train again with a big spread against Miami|
|Pittsburgh (-6) @ Navy||-||Duke beat up on Navy a couple weeks back...but this one is in Annapolis. Will Pitt do the same? We can't agree.|
|NCSU @ Florida State (-31.5)||FSU||So apparently people were impressed with FSU's pummeling the nation's #3 team on the road. Enough to cover 31.5 points?! Why not!|
|Clemson (-14) @ Maryland||Clemson||Clemson will take out their anger from last week at Maryland. Remember when Clemson used to cover giant spreads each week? 14 should do.|
|BC @ UNC (-7)||UNC||After taking it to Miami, UNC should cover, even on a non-Zero Dark Thursday...so an all-around less embarassing setting|
|Duke @ VT (-13.5)||VT||Sorry everyone, I had Duke here...but...I guess beating Duke isn't hard for everyone|
|GT (-10) @ Virginia||GT||Sorry everyone, I had the Hoos here...but...I guess the rest of the STL team isn't as loyal|
