I understand your defense of the ACC, but there isn't a team in that conference that belongs in the top 5. I've seen bracket predictions with the Mountain West and A10 getting in more teams than the ACC.

I've been saying this since December and I don't even like sports

While the "trek" is all of a 35 minute drive, I will not participate in the acc tournament this year. Not worth the vacation days

You say that now.

But when BC is playing Miami in the final game of the ACC tourney for all the marbles, you may change your tune....

the only thing that is certain this year (in the ACC) is uncertainty. that Maryland could beat Duke and then lose to BC... and Miami getting crushed by Wake? at this point, nothing would surprise me.

Ah, yes. This is the most unpredictable sports season in IB's mind since the previous sports season. You are a walking billboard for recency bias.

Big game tonight @ Georgia State. We lost a close one the last time we played them. From here on out for my Huskies it is "win-or-go-home" as I'm pretty much convinced there is no chance that NU will do better than a 16-seed in their bracket with more than 10 losses should they win the CAA tournament. Got to get that 15 or 14. Can't. Get. Another. Loss. Have to win out....

We've already secured the #1 seed in the CAA tourney. Still, gotta go 20-10 in the regular season. Gotta win the CAA tourney and finish up 22-10. And even then, we'll be lucky if the NCAA graces us with a 15 or 14. A 16 is certain death.

Controversial (somewhat?) opinion: I don't think Michigan is that good. I don't think they will make a lot of noise in the tournament. Every time I watch them (given not that often) they just let Trey Burke do his thing and largely forget about running an offense. Not very much movement towards the basket or anything like that, mostly just passing around the perimeter. On top of that, they are lazy boxing out and aren't a great rebounding team.

I still like Indiana. I think Miami will do well in the tournament. I'm not sold on Duke.

My Huskies went 27-for-27 at the free throw line tonight. That is why they won. They go 27-for-27 on the line, they can beat any team in college basketball.

Miami vs. Duke was a great game. Despite the tough loss, Miami reminds me a lot of BC circa-2006/2007 in terms of how fearless they are.
