    thx 903, i thought so just could not remember. I feel that neutral sites give a team the best experience as that is all you will play in the dance. Dukes record on neutral sites this season is very nice.

    When Duke plays Temple at the meadowlands, it's Duke's home game. Coach K moves the Temple/Duke home game to MSG so the Duke alumni in the northeast can make it to a local area game. When they play in Philly, it's Temple's home game - but like Davidson they move it to the arena so they can sell more tix.

    technically not a true road game as I said. looking at the d00k schedule, the NCSU game is the first @ game listed.

    So what, why are you so concerned with Dukes schedule. Just like every year, you Holes are more concerned with your superior neighbor 8 miles away than your own house, which is in a shambles.

    Alot of ACC teams have only played 1 and a 2nd road game if it was their turn to be on the road in the ACC-Ben Ten challenge this season. Duke's game tonight is at the Bobcats Arena but it is technically a road game since Davidon moves their home games against Duke there so they can sell more tickets.

    Dook's first true road game is at ncsu on Jan. 12th. wow!

  • unbiasedaccfan Jan 2, 2013

    I predict Duke win finish 1st, NC State and Maryland will tie for 2nd, Florida State will finish 4th, Virginia Tech and UNC will battle for 5th. Wake, Clemson, Virginia, BC, and Miami will battle for the bottom. I also predict Roy will stay for the entire game at Florida State this year.

    Duke #1 without question. After that its a toss up. I agree with Ligg. Will be interesting to see if UNC grows moving forward. This weekend might start to give us some answers!

    Dook will win it, UNC and ncsuX will be in the top 5 but I have yet to see VT play, or Maryland, or Miami. I see they are all off to good starts but I just have not had the chance to see them play.

    The Heels are improving and it will be interesting to see if ncsuX can continue to look good against tougher competition. I look forward to dook vs state. That should tell a lot.

    How do you guys see it shaking out now? We have seen each team play double digit games now. How do you see the acc playing out and how would you rank them before conference play starts??
