The ACC’s 10 worst Out of Conference football losses since 2010.

JMVT

We can’t very well write a post about the ACC’s 10 best OOC wins since 2010 without also unfortunately listing the losses. The good news is that haven’t been that been that many additions since our 10 worst OOC losses since 2008 a couple of years ago.  The ACC is in a constant battle to …

Who’s Hot, Who’s Not? #ACC Basketball Edition – Feb. 12, 2015

First and foremost, I would like to say R.I.P. to #UNC head coach Dean Smith who was a legend and good person. He impacted a lot of lives on and off the basketball court and I wish more coaches like him existed. Without further adieu… Virginia (22-1 Overall, 10-1 Conference) Last 10 games: 9-1 The …

ACC Basketball Power Rankings – February 11, 2015

Typically, this space is used for a snarky, joke-filled look at the teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference. This week, I wanted something slightly different. There have been many tributes over the past three days to the great Dean Smith, former North Carolina head coach. I won’t pretend this will be the best or most …

The ACC’s 10 best Out of Conference football wins since 2010.

Winston

2 Years ago I wrote an article where I listed the ACC’s best wins since 2008.  Let me tell you, it was a hard search. So much so, that Georgia Tech’s 21-7 victory over a 7 win USC team in the Sun ranked 10th. How times have changed… Take a look at the last 5 years …

ACC Bubble Analysis for February 8, 2015

bubble5

Did any teams make a move this week? Syracuse is out of the picture due to their self-imposed post-season ban… 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 …

It’s National Signing Day – Let’s not get carried away, but don’t dismiss it either.

It was the week where the barrier between the top seven and the bottom eight was shattered, and the week Virginia’s perfect season gained a blemish. 1 – …
