As expected, the Louisville Football program was picked by ACC media memebrs to finish in last place in the Atlantic division in year one of the Scott Satterfield era.

As disappointing as it is to see the Cards picked to finish dead last, this certainly isn’t a surprise.

For what it’s worth, Syracuse was predicted to finish in last place in 2018 and ended up finishing the season ranked in the top 15. I wouldn’t expect the same results for Louisville in 2019, but it’s one of my examples of preseason predictions being wrong.
