I don’t love UVA for their scoring, it’s their sense of humor. Updated ACC Power Rankings

So, it's still a bit too early for these to actually matter or be accurate, but I like doing it, so here ya go. Some things became clearer after the ACC/Big10 challenge, while some things became a bit cloudier. One thing is for sure, there is no change at the top of the mountain. Duke: …

ACC Bucks the Trend on Night 3. Final Night of the Challenge Preview and Prediction

By Mychal Hunter I'll probably say it 100 times throughout the course of the season, home court matters so much in college basketball. Through the first two nights of the ACC/ Big 10 challenge, the home team had won six of the seven games. I pointed out yesterday that in the previous two years Brad …

ACC/B10 Challenge Night 3 Preview and Predictions

I really wish I could make money picking money lines. I am sometimes terrible against the spread but so far in this challenge I am 6-1 picking winners. I should have stuck with my gut feeling Virginia Tech would boat race Iowa. The Hokies look absolutely unstoppable at times. Georgia Tech pulled out a win …

ACC/B10 Challenge Night 2 Preview and Predictions

Night two of the challenge is tonight, and while a couple of the games are somewhat interesting, some others are kind of, blah. Pittsburgh is in action tonight, but not in the challenge, they will be hosting High Point and trying to avoid another embarrassing loss at home. On to the important stuff... Florida State …

Happy Belated Thanksgiving! ACC Power Rankings

-By Mychal Hunter Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday, I must admit. I find myself sweating for no reason for about five days afterwards. Whether or not that is a direct correlation to typically having about five days of turkey, gravy, stuffing and potatoes leftover has yet to be proven beyond a shadow of a …

They’re not the MOPs, but they’re possibly the MIP’s.

There are some teams in this conference who operate at a high levelĀ  regardless of whether or not they are at full strength. Case in point, Duke was able to hold off the #2 team in the nation despite losing the 2018 number 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. UNC is 3-0 despite playing …

Same Old Story for Wake Forest

By Mychal Hunter There is no question, since Danny Manning took over for Jeff Bzdelik the impression is that Wake Forest is much better off as a program. Manning has put teams on the floor that look and play a much more desirable style, he has killed it in recruiting, bringing in guys like Bryant …

Remember Pitt Fans, You Wanted This.

By Mychal Hunter We all have that friend right? The guy that for whatever reason just thinks he deserves the world without really doing anything to earn it. He's the same guy that asks "Who the fuck do you think you're talking too?", when you challenge him on something as insignificant as Pepsi being better …
