Doesn't matter, KY is going to win it all again anyway.

Miami is the real deal, 2nd best team in College Basketball behind Indiana.

Needing 70% shooting to beat a young and terrible FSU team.

This could be said last year. This year FSU is terrible. I mean beyond terrible. Look at the losses this year. Mercer and South Alabama at home. Auburn on the road. A Blowout All Star team could challenge this year's FSU team. They've lost 6 of their last 9 games.

FSU lost all their big men to graduation and/or injury. Johnson was silenced last year. Last night Miami should have gone to him every possession. Ojo will manhandle him in a few years, but the guy is too new to the game.

I pull for ACC teams when the tourney comes, but I think Miami is a pretender.

only chiming in because i find it hilarious the OP respects UNC because of the crop of players they've had, and their color scheme.

good reason to respect em IMO. coming from a die hard UMD fan.... i think the exact opposite.

hate duke and UNC both.... but gotta respect duke for going about things the right way forever. f most of UNC players and coaches

also, the canes are certainly real, but should take things with a grain of salt. they probably aren't top 5 worthy, but any team in the top 25 has a chance at going all the way.. see butler U

Big Surprise Yes

Sweet Sixteen Potential=Absolutely

Beyond that=VERY Questionable. But if they grab a #1 seed could be 8??

I'll take bets against Final 4

I think Miami is benefiting from a down year in the ACC. Can't fault them there they only can play the schedule. I think they possibly could get to the sweet 16 considering they are gonna get decent seed based on their record

I dont care what anyone says but "The U" are a true underdog comeup. Compared to schools like Duke, UNC , Kentucky etcc.. We dont get 5 star recruits often, even then if we do get "Good" players the only reason is because they are from SFlorida. I do hope alot more kids commit to the U, right now all we have are the Heat. Its crazy to say for football we dont even make the top 20 recruiting class.

Not comparing player quality, but the Heat lost to the Bucks the same year they won a ring. So what's your point? Anyone has an off day.

Before you hate on Miami check your stats; they are a perfect 1.000 in the ACC

Not Duke
Not UNC
And Definetly not FSU.

C
A
N
E
S

That game last night was terrible...They should have lost but the ref make a terrible call against Clemson late that changes the gamele. I know Clemson plays good defense and Miami was on the road but I don't see them as title contenders. I will be rooting for the Zags come March. Hopefully they make it to the final four.

I think the Zags make it this year.. Best team I have seen outside of Indiana hands down..

I know you were on Clemsham +5.5 I hope you didn't moneyline them. I almost did but they did finish off a 3 teamer for me too.

Well, I also mentioned their legacy and championships....

As for their color scheme, I believe it's one of those things that transcends into something more.

Think about the Yankees and their pinstripes...

Think about the Cowboys and their star...

I almost never say "powder blue" or "baby blue" to identify that color.

I always say "Carolina blue".

I see it as a very cool thing that they have, and like I said I do have a lot of respect for them for various reasons, not just their color scheme.

So your going to blame injuries on being spanked by Florida Gulf Coast.


Classy

you really are a bozo aren't you... of course injuries had a part of the blame.. how bad would scUM be without Trey?

It was the 2nd game of the year. It was also their first road game. It was the biggest home game in the history of Florida Gulf Coast who if you did any research you would see they are a 2nd place team 1 game out of first place.

Also if you knew anything at all you would be more up in arms at the fact they lost to a D2 team in the preseason without said players. But your blue colored glasses can't get you to look at anything objectively.

I don't make excuses. Seems like your full of them. Seems like you get awfully upset over basketball talk too... Which is hilarious. ACC is weak this year too.

Any way you twist it Miami lost to Florida Gulf Coast. Its on their RPI and isn't going away.

BTW Michigans starting center damn near broke his ankle. Lol I never once used that as an excuse over losing 3 games recently. Injuries happen.


No excuse to losing to Florida Gulf Coast.

I think Miami is good, and will probably be a 1 seed, but I can see them losing in the sweet 16, it's not a team I'd buy into too much.
