Granted I know minimal about RCC outside of the fact that they were picked to finish at the top of the ACC and tedwardo thinks they're perpetually overrated.


Unfortunately, I think the overratedness is a carry-over from the Sendek and Lowe eras and that under Gottfried they are a lot closer to the hype (or at least seemed that way last year).

No, though it is a good point.

A. Most schools aren't that consistent, though BC football makes a case to be the inverse of NCSU hoop

B. One good or bad coach can break the monotony, it just ain't Gottfried.

He had a good first year, but I understand what you are saying. Rutgers football has been like this for some time now and of course FSU.

Looking over NCSU's schedule, it appears as though they haven't played in a game that was close late in over a month. Maybe they'll forget how to finish a close game. I realize I'm grasping for straws here because I expect the Pack to shoot 75% from the floor in the first place.

NCST gets into weird ruts on offense where they just heave perimeter jump shots.

We're going to lose @MD, Miami and NCST by a combined 60 points. Those teams are all horrible matchups for BC

You're right. Absolutely no way this BC team ever stays within twenty of NC State.

clearly the wolfpack are sixth sensians and can see dead people behind the conte ghosts. imagine you were doing something that you are good at like starting retarded arguments, creating horrible photoshop images or passing your last aid on the world with ghosts looking over your shoulder?!?!? i bet your arguments would be even LESS effective, your photoshops would look even more like the work of a psychopath and your aid would stay home.

I'm not sure what's more surprising - that TRE didn't know this actually happens, or that I couldn't find a picture of the kid on Google image search.

TRE, yes, this does happen. The kid wears the costume pictured below with a superfan shirt or BC jersey pulled over it.

People used to say it's a carry over from the Sendek era when I pointed out that NCSU has institutionally sucked since Valvano. Now they say "Sendek and Lowe". Soon it will be "Sendek, Lowe and Gottfried."

We have this same discussion about UVa football every year.


Sendek didn't really suck. Les Robinson and Sidney Lowe were awful. Sendek was nothing more than average. He had them in the NCAA Tournament every year his last five years there.
