Ranking the ACC Football Coaches

Not too long ago we went through the Athlon Sports Ranking of the ACC Coaches. These were rankings in large part I didn’t agree with. Some of the comments I had there I’ll elaborate on now when I rank the ACC coaches for a little spring football reading. 1. Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech What I …

How Frank Martin’s hiring at South Carolina could affect the ACC.

There was a hiring move this week that frankly floored me and that I think has farther reaching implications than may appear on the surface. Implications that I discussed  with FSU Fan @saintwarrick and Georgia Tech fan @younglefhander on twitter. South Carolina lured away Kansas State head basketball coach Frank Martin to coach in Columbia. …

Grading the ACC’s NCAA Tournament.

Considering I’m writing this article summarizing the ACC’s performance in the NCAAs and the tournament is not yet over is probably not a good sign. This means for the 2nd straight year the ACC didn’t put a team into the Final 4. That is basically like forgetting to do the last page of the final …

The Tar Heels apparently should head back to Chapel Hill without playing Kansas.

Judging by the national media out there, North Carolina doesn’t have a chance against Kansas Sunday without a healthy Kendal Marshall. ESPN’s Doug Gottlieb says “I mean, they’ll get out of St. Louis, But they’ll be going back to Chapel Hill.” Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports wrote, “North Carolina survived (barely) and advanced (on its …

Don’t count North Carolina out just yet for the National Title.

Without a healthy Kendall Marshall, North Carolina’s National Title and Final 4 hopes are finished right? I mean a team can’t possibly overcome the injury of such a valuable player, especially with possibility of playing a Kentucky or a Kansas to win a championship right? I think history provides some hope to North Carolina fans. …

North Carolina State crashes Sweet 16 Party.

I hope you were reading the blog about a week ago when I called NC State one of the most dangerous double digit seeds in the NCAA tournament, because I said it was a decent possibility they’d make the 2nd week of the NCAAs. NC State is in Sweet 16 after defeating a very good …

Is Duke basketball slipping?

Duke is out of the NCAA tournament. They were out before the tournament’s first weekend even started. After Friday’s embarrassing loss to Lehigh, you have to wonder is Duke basketball slipping? This seems like a strange to question for a team went 27-7 that is only 2 years removed from National Title, but since 2004-2005 season …
