I still have nightmares about being up 21 on ND with 5 mins remaining in last year's ACC tourney. Everyone predicted ND as a sleeper because Zion..err. Colston was back.. and we kicked their ass up and down the court anyway for 35 minutes. Maddening.

It was fifteen minutes to go.

I guess I'm pulling for Miami and Georgia Tech today since we beat them twice each. Notre Dame is a lost cause for resume building. Pitt winning is probably better for us too since that was a road win.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Nooner= Dan Dakich story time/Irrational personal opinions on the ACC.

74-54

Dan Dakich is never afraid to trash the NC schools on the air so he's fine in my book.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Agreed, but the comment he mad about UConn possibly joining the ACC soon was absurd.

74-54

UCONN women are 192-0 in AAC Play. It would be interesting to see if any ACC teams besides Notre Dame could beat them.

FSU and Louisville could probably put up a good fight in their respctive arenas.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

I dare ya!

In the FWIW vein, it was interesting to hear Seth say that he believed Buzz deserved COY.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Easier to not have bad blood when the two most responsible people for your firing (Weaver & Steger) no longer work at Virginia Tech.

The wheels just fell off of Miami. The tiniest bit of foul trouble pushes them over their already microscopic margin of error.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

#15 notre dame = awesome

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Is this where I come to say it's really hard to beat a team 3 times in a year?

Nah, we know how to beat Miami with and without Robinson. I have faith.

I'll be surprised if Danny Manning makes it three steps off the bus back in Winston-Salem before he's let go.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Not sure why they would even let him get on the bus at this point. Might as well leave him there to start finding an analyst job.

24-66 in ACC play in five seasons under Manning. Things kind of looked bright in year 3 at 9-9 in ACC play but then the wheels came off his recruiting classes.

Maybe I'm remembering things wrong, but I feel like they got rid of Dino far too soon. Amazing how far they've dropped since Skip died.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Don't look now, but GT has a chance to erase a 20 point half-time deficit to ND late in the game. Only down 6 with a couple minute left.

That first half had me wondering what happened to their good defense?

The Rambling Wreck don't stop

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Guess I shouldn't have said anything.

Ted Valentines already off to a terrific start in the nc state game, peak dumb ass with no idea what a foul is or isnt

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

TV Teddy .....errrrrr......NC State on the 8-0 run!

I found a post on reddit - Which will have higher ranked teams - ACC Semis or Final Four. It had some interesting discussion about how much better the ACC is too to bottom compared to the rest of the country.

One discussion was about who would win an All-Conference Team's Tournament. Another comment showed records of all ACC teams against current Lunardi Bracket tournament field based on current game odds on neutral courts. It was crazy how well the odds favored VT. Also, FSU does not do well in this simulation.

So, one take from this: VT does not want to face a "FSU-like" team in the NCAA tourney.

Good news, I can't think of another team with 10 contributors with the length they have.

Round 3?

Tech played much harder against FSU than LOLUVA is.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Does the FSU win over UVA and the Duke win over UNC help Va Tech at all with placement in the NCAA tournament? And who do Hokie fans want to win between FSU and Duke?

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

And who do Hokie fans want to win between FSU and Duke?

Neither of them

Let's Go

Duke [immediately dives behind couch]. Look, I detest halFaSsU. I enjoy them losing (as much as possible). Even to coach Ratface.

Waho's suck

Yah I gotta pull for Duke in this.

Duke's angling in on a number one seed.

Go ACC.

I'll pull for Ratface, but I'll NEVER #goacc
