December 10, 2009The ACC's balance of power clearly tilted to the Coastal Division all season.
Four of the six ACC teams to win at least eight games play in the Coastal. Division champion Georgia Tech went on to win the ACC title. And it should come as no surprise that Coastal teams also dominate the Rivals.com All-ACC team.
Eighteen of the 26 first-team selections play in the Coastal Division. The second team is much more balanced, with 13 players from the Atlantic and 13 from the Coastal.
Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina and Virginia Tech each ended up with four first-team performers. All four of North Carolina's first-teamers are from a defense that allowed the fewest yards in the conference.
