Actually last year it was their IN conference schedule that was soft as marshmallows.

Is this the year Va Tech actually does something? Not sure how people can pick them or Miami as 2nd place over UNC in the ACC.

speaking of Va Tech, looks like they finally listened to the committee and upgraded their OOC schedule.

UNC Greensboro
Cal St. Northridge (neutral floor)
Purdue
Penn St.
Mississippi St.

USC Upstate
Mt. St. Mary's

The Orangemen are just a rock-solid, consistent winner that hasn't suffered a losing season since 1968-69.

KenPom predicts BC to finish 17-11 with a win over Harvard. That Jan 1 match-up with the Gamecocks could be huge for hosting a 1st-rd NIT game.

Superfans have to be pumped at the prospects of such a successful season.

Zero huge matchups for the Gamecocks this year. They're horrible.

VT could finish #2 in the ACC. Miami not so much.

UNC still has PG issues but Barnes will be first team all ACC. Not sure he gets POY over Singler if Duke rolls to a league title

Calhoun was on Francesa yesterday, said he thinks we are close to seeing the top 120 or so schools break away from the NCAA. Said the set of values is just too different from the rest of NCAA.

Found out the Duke o/u was 135 last night and was pissed I missed it. They will score over 80 most nights this year and 90 against weak teams.

Run and gun.

Good bid Yellowjackets.

Is this yet another year of UNC or Duke and the 12 sisters?

I think VT has moved up to in-law status this year, but it's not like anyone is going to challenge for the title.

Good thing that Swofford killed hoops to create a powerhouse football conference. DB- Spare me the title talk, it's easier to be fresh in March/April when you don't break a sweat during league play.

Love that they bring Gottlieb in to give his comments but don't let him sit with Bilas, Digger and Hubert.

No doubt they hate him.

Its hi-larious that the NCAA is against a football playoff because of the impact on academics, but they have no problem with college hoops teams playing games at midnight, 9 am, etc.
