Andrea Adelson published her way-too-early 2016 ACC football rankings on ESPN.com. To no surprise, Clemson and Florida State still top the list, with Louisville right behind them. The Cards return a lot of talent and should be good, but we can’t act like those two teams are suddenly going to fall off. 2016 should be a fun year for sure. Here is what she had to say about the top 3 teams.

12:30 … again.

If there is one thing Cards fans can agree on about this season, I’d have to say that it would be how much we hate early games. With (at least) half of our games this season at 12:30pm or earlier, it’s been pretty easy to question why Louisville continues to get snubbed for afternoon and night games – especially in big-name ACC match ups. I mean, our games against Clemson and Samford were the games with evening time slots all season.

When the game time for senior day against University of Virginia was announced, the chorus of grumbles was not much quieter than weeks prior – if anything it was simply a little more defeated. 12:30 games aren’t the most fun games throughout the course of a football season, but they aren’t the worst thing that could have happened to us. Looking at the negatives of early games, we tend to lose sight of why they aren’t (so) bad after all.

BOBBY PETRINO: We had a nice win last week against Wake Forest on the road. It was hard fought. I think Wake played very well and our defense had a great game. We worked hard on practice, looking forward to the game Saturday.
