 With North Carolina’s blowout victory over Maryland, the rematch is set. UNC and Duke with an ACC Regular Season Title on the line. There is an NCAA number 1 seed in play, rivalry bragging rights, and oh year they are both ranked in the top 5. Just another typical game in college basketball’s biggest rivalry, …

ACC NCAA Bubble Analysis for February 26, 2012

The ACC still has a shot at as many as 6 NCAA teams, but that will depend on how Miami and NC State finish the season. Right now only one of them is in. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. …

How do the ACC bubble teams compare to other bubble teams?

We’ve been doing our ACC Bubble watch each Sunday, but it’s probably time to take a look at the rest of the country’s bubble teams. What they do will directly affect in particular Miami’s and NC State’s bubble status. We are going to consider Maryland as well, because with an 8-8 finish to the ACC …

Time to start believing in the Duke Blue Devils.

The Duke Blue Devils might have been the most underrated 23-4 #4 ranked team in recent memory. Listen to the college basketball analysts and they heaped deserved praise on Kentucky and Syracuse. No one argues that, but after those two you got into the next group of teams that could get to the final 4 …

I might be a little pressed for time tomorrow, so I’m going ahead and putting out my weekly Articles from around Blogosphere a day early. There’s so much going on starting with some NC State fans who are steaming mad at ACC official Karl Hess for ejecting a couple of NC State legends Saturday against …

For the first time in a couple of weeks the number of ACC teams I’ve had in the NCAA tournament has dropped from 6 to 5 teams.  Who dropped out? Take a look below. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. …

Is there any doubt Virginia’s Mike Scott is the ACC Player of the Year?

Coming off a loss Tuesday night at Clemson, Virginia was looking a little shaky. Despite a 19-6 record they had fallen to 6-5 in the ACC with a dangerous Maryland team coming to Charlottesville. Frankly if the Cavs had lost Saturday that would be the NCAA bubble off in the horizon, but as he’s done …

Just how long is Clemson’s losing streak at North Carolina?

The streak is 55 games and counting. 55 times Clemson has went to Chapel Hill and left with a loss to North Carolina. The Tigers have been trying since 1926 to win at Chapel Hill. To that put into perspective, let’s go over a few streaks that have happened 55 times or more. Joe DiMaggio’s …

So the ACC may have an expansion model with Notre Dame and UCONN. Do you like it?

The Hartford Courant is reporting that the ACC has a model for expansion with the additions Notre Dame and UCONN. Now way back in September I wrote that the ACC shouldn’t expand beyond the soon to be 14 teams, unless that is Notre Dame joins and brings a partner. At the time I didn’t ask …

Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods is still the rivalry we all want to see.

I like to watch golf. I’m not every an every weekend golf fan, but I know the players. I normally watch the majors and some of the bigger golf events. I also tune in when Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are both in contention. Judging by Sunday’s TV ratings, which were CBS’s highest Pebble Beach …

ACC NCAA Bubble Analysis for February 12, 2012

More jockeying for position this week…. How are things shaping with selection Sunday quickly approaching? In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses outside the RPI top (100) is considered a bad loss, and outside the RPI (150) are even …

Jeremy Lin got me to pay attention to the NBA before May.

I’m not a big NBA fan nor do I claim to be. In fact I pretty much don’t pay attention to the NBA until about May when the playoffs start. By that time the college basketball is over and the Masters has just finished. I actually enjoyed the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat NBA Finals …
