With the wealth concentrated at the top of the conference, former Clemson football coach Danny Ford might look at the rest of the ACC baseball standings and declare the league to be "very, very average."
On the final morning of the ACC's regular season, the teams bunched in the 4-10 positions in the standings have a combined league record of 100-103, with no one more than one game over .500.
The logjam reflects season-long consistency in inconsistency, up and down the lineup.
NC State, one of the league's preseason favorites, has fought its way uphill to a 13-16 record which will be enough, barely, to secure one of four spots in the ACC's first tournament 'play-in.'
Georgia Tech, a traditionally consistent power, will claim another play-in spot at 14-16.
Of the rest, three of five teams - Clemson (14-14), North Carolina (15-14), Maryland (15-14 and finished), Duke (15-14) and Wake Forest (14-15) - will grab the 4-6 tournament spots, with the other two joining NC State and Georgia Tech in the play-in.
This weekend's final series have done little to un-muddle the mess.
Wake Forest has split with Virginia, as have Clemson with BC and Miami with North Carolina. Duke has dropped two games to FSU, and NC State has won two over Virginia Tech. In a series with no tournament implications, Notre Dame has shut out Pittsburgh twice.
By mid-afternoon today, the seedings will have sorted themselves out, and the 'very, very average' will move on to their own ACC tournament agendas, some including NCAA bids and some not.
