It's Time: 2010-11 ACC Preview

Recommended Posts

By the way, the Heels are currently the only undefeated team in the ACC.

...I'm as shocked as you are.

(ETA: Not that they ARE undefeated, but that nobody else is. Y'know...like Duke.)

Gosh the ACC is really really really bad this year.

College basketball in general isn't that good this year...but yea, the ACC has been a huge disappointment.

If more than three teams get in from the ACC, I'll be shocked. Usually more than one team is at least APPROACHING "lock status, barring a meltdown"-ville, but wow. Just...wow.

Nice win for Florida State tonight. This is a really good team. They absolutely lock people down and with Singleton, Kitchen, Dulkys, Loucks, Snaer and their array of big men on the interior, I think they have emerged as the clear cut #2 behind Duke in the ACC.

I still think 5 teams get in from the ACC. Maybe 6, but probably 5.

Hi.

Remember me?

Here come the Heels.

Yep..starting to play well and their ACC schedule is pretty favorable the rest of the way, outside of the 2 Duke games.

Could be another season like last year where 2 teams win 13+ ACC games.

Really starting to come together, as "The Epic" pointed out to me on Facebook, Marshall and Drew combined for 15 assists and only 3 turnovers tonight. That's huge.

Can't wait to play Duke next week, and see how far we've come.

I regret that UNC doesn't have any more games outside of the ACC. There won't really be a gauge of how good they are until (hopefully?) the Tourney. Duke's a great team, but they're still in a down ACC.

I'll say one thing, our buzzer beating loss to Texas a few months ago looks much better now the way the Horns have been playing.

    • The offending tweets could have been deleted because when I checked an archive of his Twitter page yesterday I saw nothing controversial. Then again what is controversial to the Angelos family may be different than the average public opinion.
    • To paraphrase Henry Ford: “You can have any opinion you want as long as it is mine.” it’s scary. 
    • I had that thought too - I suppose Rio competitive with them if he can truly climb the defensive spectrum at this late age, but I give the younger guys more of a chance to become bench contributors down the line, or maybe even hold off Westburg/Vavra a bit.
    • Also using Jahmai or Bannon would give some infield depth. That’s a lot of outfielders with Stewart, McKenna, Santander, Mullins, and Mountcastle on a 3 man bench.
    • A couple of years ago I watched, on gameday, an agonizing at bat from one of the Rangers weakest hitters, against Kevin Gausman. Wieters was catching. Buck was managing. Gausman threw the exact same pitch, the exact same way, to the exact same place, seven times. On the eighth exact same pitch to the exact same place, the batter hit it for a single. The Os lost. I was furious, and at the time there was a lot of chatter about that at bat. I do not know whether the catcher was calling that pitch every time or Gausman Insisted on throwing that pitch every time and was shaking off alternative pitch choices, so I don’t know who was being stubborn, in the event anyone was being so. But I always think of that AB when I consider the intangible dynamics between catcher and pitcher. Does the pitcher trust the catcher enough to follow his advice? Does the catcher have enough experience, dominating personality, stubbornness, or what have you, to make the pitcher follow his advice? And is the catcher right? If the pitcher does correctly what the catcher wants, is it the right decision? Those are very important questions and I submit that it is obvious that our current guys fail in all of them.
    • I'm a little surprised. Valaika seemed decently useful. Is Ruiz better than him either offensively or defensively? I don't think so. The one thing Rio has going for him is being lefty but he still doesn't hit RHP. Maybe it will be Jahmai or Bannon sooner rather than later? Would make more sense to me than DJ.
    • Aaron Wilson just got fired for saying something in a radio interview about the Deshaun Watson situation. Scary times right now. Cannot voice an opinion without risking your career.
