Spring on the Eastern Seaboard began with Florida State trying to rebuild its offense, Wake Forest trying to rebuild its defense, North Carolina trying to rebuild its program and the Atlantic Coast Conference trying to repair its image.
The ACC's reputation took a beating when its marquee teams ? Miami and Florida State ? both struggled to 6-6 finishes in the regular season.
Its image was further tarnished when ACC teams went 4-4 in bowl games, but needed Miami's one-point victory over Nevada ? Nevada? ? and Boston College's one-point win over Navy to break even.
Six ACC teams have new offensive coordinators and eight completed spring football without settling on a starting quarterback, so there could be a lot of new faces under center next fall.
Will these new moves produce some old results? A lot of ACC teams hope so.
