    Ok, the first ACC game is in the books, and the team looked a bit more focused than in recent games. Now that we are into the ACC schedule, where do you see the team ending up the year in the standings. Poll is public and goes from 1 to 10 or more wins.

    Remaining Schedule:

    VT x 2
    Syracuse
    Clemson x 2
    Louisville
    ND x 2
    Duke
    UNC
    FSU x 2
    Pitt
    Miami
    UVA
    BC
    NCSt

    Went with 5. I think anywhere from 4-14 to 7-11 is possible. Anything better than that and Pastner should be in the conversation for ACC Coach of the Year again. We maybe have one player among the top 20 players in the league.

    I'm not sure about this, though I don't follow the broader ACC very closely. Who on the team do you think qualifies? Jose?

    If Banks and Alvarado stay healthy, I think we can get to 8 conference wins.

    We don't play Wake again but I agree with Clemson/ND/Pitt/BC and the possibility to steal 1 or 2 out of Louisville/FSU/VT at home. I also think we win 1 or 2 road games.

    One of these seasons we will win a bunch of close games unlike most when we choke and lose by a point or two. That has happened so much the past 15 years.

    I read it wrong. Thanks.

    VT is really good and well coached. FSU has athletes but seems to always be poorly coached and undisciplined.

    What team sport do you know of where having better players doesn't increase your chances of winning? I'll hang up and listen.

    Of course better players give you a better "chance" to win, but there are countless examples of "teams" with lesser players beating teams with higher rated players.

    Sure. But that's not really what's happening right now with our team/program, and anyone who doesn't think the level of talent on the team is the primary reason for that is kidding themselves.

    Gotta agree here. We need some dudes who can put the biscuit in the basket.

    Certainly no one can accuse Pastner of not getting this team to play hard. They gave a great effort tonight, and have for the majority of the season, but Jose can't be the entire offense.

    Agreed. Why the ball wasn't in his hands on that last possession is a real mystery. I guess they had a plan of some kind, but he should've been handling the ball, with us living and dying based on whatever he was able to do.
