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 level  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 …

The Champions Classic Preview

Tonight is a big night for college basketball as we start  to get out of the warm up, cupcake schedules, and get into some real competitive action. This evening Duke (-2) will take on Michigan State, and Kansas (-4.5) will take on Kentucky in the Champions Classic in Chicago, Illinois at the the United Center. …

ACC Recruiting Roundup-11/12/17

So we are currently in the early signing period, as of right now there have not been any surprises. All verbals have been honored as far as I know. Noone has flipped, or done anything shady. Outside the ACC, I think the only guy to not sign his NLI is Brandon Williams who is verbally …

Temple Gibbs is everything I thought he would be.

When I am correct, I am typically quite flamboyant about it. It is mostly because it happens so infrequently. I just finished up watching Notre Dame beat Depaul by 14 in Chicago, and my boy TJ Gibbs did not disappoint. You may remember that I chose Gibbs as my #1 breakout player in the ACC …

Opening Night Game Notes, Who Impressed and “Jamie, We’re Sorry”

Anyone want to guess who impressed? Ha... There were 12 ACC games being played last night, so I had to do a bit of jumping around. Duke and UNC were never in any real danger so I kind of back burnered those teams, though UNI kept it respectable like I knew they would. Duke came …

ACC Opening Weekend Preview

It's here! It's here!! Finally, after roughly eight months, college basketball returns tomorrow with a huge slate of games. The ACC alone has 20 games this weekend with six teams playing two games and Duke is actually playing on back to back nights. Florida State is the only team that won't play, they open their …

Don’t you, Forget about me, don’t don’t don’t, don’t you….

With the current state of the College Basketball universe it's easy to forget about some guys that are lost in the shuffle of free agency, injuries and academic situations. A year is a long time in the day of the 24 hour news cycle. I wanted to touch on some fellas who are going to …
