    the power rankings? don't let DAs Torpedo hear any thing about the power rankings from espn, Apparently, he thinks the power ranking are a regional poll and not a national poll. LOL

    The poor lil ncsuX fan posted...

    "Hey smarty, those are ESPN's power rankings. NOT the national rankings."
    LOL@ "smarty" (made me feel like I'm posting with a little girl.)

    "So when you talk about rankings and don't specify otherwise, you default to power rankings and not national rankings? "

    When Duke defeats Ohio State they will deserve that #3 ranking...until then it's really more speculation on potential rather than an opinion based on conclusive results.

    It's UNC

    Like UK, Duke, Kansas, etc. They will always get additional consideration due to being "in the mix" almost every year.

    Preseason rankings are bs. They are actually considered predictions of where your team will finish not where they currently are. The powers that be also put a whole lot of faith in Roy and K which often makes our preseason rankings astronomical at times. For the record if I had to rank the triangle teams right now based on performance (just eye tests not really stats) I would have Duke-8 or 9, State 25-30,and UNC 30-35. The number would be based on how many teams would have a legitimate chance of beating you more than they lost to you. The more teams the lower the ranking. And I expect all teams to improve as the season progresses (some more than others).

    I agree. We are still improving and I have not seen the play that would inspire that kind of confidence in me yet...

    I don't see how we can be as high as #9 - yet.

    After a convincing win against the defending national champion Kentucky Wildcats, Duke moves up to 3 in the new ESPN Power Rankings. UNC at 9, while NC State falls all the way to 19.
