Who has the better basketball job opening – Georgia Tech or Pittsburgh?

Brian_Gregory

Two pretty surprising job openings are now available in the ACC – Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh. Jamie Dixon is headed to TCU to talk over his at alma mater. In my opinion, this won’t end well for Dixon. Dixon is a good coach, but not a great recruiter. It will be tougher to recruit to …

Dos and Don’ts for rooting for the ACC after sending record setting six teams to Sweet 16.

ACC-F

With the ACC sending a record 6 teams to the Sweet 16, it’s been a great week of basketball for the conference.
