ACC Discussion Thread

I agree...i don't see Singler being much more than a role player in the NBA..Not athletic or big enough IMO...But he can be a great college player.

Yea but he is probably a top 10 pick and may end up top 5, so he needs to go.

Singler's not athletic enough to be a 3 but not strong enough to be a 4 at the next level..Who knows though, he's way more skilled than Hansbrough, and Tyler's having some success so far in the league.

Davis is probably top 5, so you're probably right.

Carolina will be lucky to make the tournament..We're just not very good. Gotta get better point guard play or it's going to be a looooong season.

Also, seriously, can the announcers stop saying how "surprised" they are that Carolina is losing these games...We lost 90% of our scoring from last season. Come on!

We just can't start well. I don't know what the hell is going on with the first ten minutes of games. I'm done with Larry Drew.

One great thing that came out of this, though...Will Graves carried this team on his back. When UNC comes back next year, he's going to end up being the "it" guy. Dude was just...on.

What a brilliant comeback despite the loss. I actually felt bad for LDII today..not only is he awful, every time he made a nice move the shot didn't fall.

Graves hopefully has gotten over his issues from last year and can remain a productive shooter and citizen.

Ok, so who had UVA at 3-0 to start off the ACC season? A thorough domination of Miami last night.

This Tony Bennett thing just might work out ok.

Congrats on the fast start bro...happy for ya!

Like I said in the Maryland thread, Bennett has an offense that just kills those fast paced ACC teams. Its really slow...and hard to come back from if you are losing. Its kind of like Wisconsin's system. What did he do with no talent Was. State? He slowed it down.

it's true that he has a system, but is based more on defense than anything else. He preaches hard nosed solid D, and yes he likes patience on the offensive end.

And no talent? His best team at Wazzu had Derek Lowe and Kyle Weaver, two guys that could play for anyone.

And I hope you weren't insinuating there is no talent at UVA, because Landesberg would start for every single team in the conference.

Real nice ACC clash between Wake and Duke so far on Comcast Sports Net.

Another beatdown by Duke against a quality opponent!

3 of their next 4 on the road...looking forward to seeing that stretch.

UVa had to play their game that was scheduled for December tonight against UNCW. They had a 14 point lead with about 10 minutes to go, but UNCW got hot as can be from 3 and got back into the game, hitting a game tying 3 with 30 seconds to go.

UVa had the ball, with the last shot of the game.

Landesberg. FTW.

Bring on Wake Forest.

Is this supposed to be a feather in the cap of UVA? :D

Don't they have anyone better than Drew to play PG? He's horrific.

Yes, Dexter Strickland, but he's a Freshman. It's a learning thing with Drew, he'll get better, or we won't make the tournament. It is what it is.

    • Man I hope it works out for this kid. He's so close.
    • Right. I used to prefer Hall because of his actual elite upside as a lefty. His control issues became more apparent as Rodriguez's upside started to emerge as elite too, so I flipped. I know elite's a word that we shouldn't throw around a ton, but the upside of these two is off the charts and they're at a better spot arguably than any group we've had here in a long time. Think of this list of misses and good but not great guys. Loewen was supposed to be awesome, but never performed. Matt Riley was hyped, but rushed and seemingly didn't have the maturity for the gig. Matusz was a top pick, but without elite stuff. Arrieta was pretty electric in the minors and was grouped with Matusz/Hernandez and others, so that was certainly a nice crop. Gausman didn't have the 3rd pitch. Harvey does have an elite arm was hurt almost from the jump. Even Bundy's crazy elite profile was tempered almost immediately by velocity drops and shoulder issues. Then there's Hobgoo..... These two have crossed time/stuff/performance hurdles that many of our other guys haven't. They're not here yet. They have risk, and Hall still does with command for sure, but they're the best top 2 pitching prospects we've paired since McDonald/Mussina, IMO.
    • We came back to win one of the three, so that one probably didn’t register with you.   That was the April 29 game against the Yankees where Mullins hit a sac fly in extra innings to win the game, so everyone left happy despite the blown save in the 9th. The first blown save was against Boston on April 10 and came in the top of the 9th.    We didn’t score in the bottom half and then lost in extra innings.    So, this is the first blown save that resulted in an immediate, walk-off loss.    Those always burn the most.    
    • I've been imagining an unrealistic best case scenario where we hover around .500 for the next few months and then call up Hall, Rutschman, and Jones. Add in a healthy Santander and I could see a pretty decent team. Hall is certainly doing his part, and Santander is back soon. But Adley's bat and Jones' glove are squashing that fantasy. It's weird, if we can't be good this year I'd just assume we lock in one more high draft slot. Which all means we'll end up with a blah record and a blah pick of course.
    • Gunnar Henderson is tearing it up. Even if he moves to 3B there's Westburg.
    • My 'optimist' take is that the O's are identifying and working through his issues now, whereas Wieters was able to get through the minors on talent alone and never did address his swing path issues.
