    State kollege fans will be crowing about their "dream team" when they fall to #30. Dellusional and satisfied easily with mediocrity.

    I agree about the won-loss, though I expect each of these three teams to be in the 20 game range this year. I know the problems that VT has had in the past. While I expect VT to win 20 this test, they and MD do not have much of a cushion and could easily finish with anywhere from 18 to 22 wins.

    I was mostly commenting on the other stats, not the W-L. Shooting percentage or assist ratios don't mean all that much at this point in the season. By mid-Feb they will.

    I think that it matters when all wins vs losses count in the big picture of obtaining an NCAA berth. These games played thus far will count come March. Look at VT over the years. The most of all bubble teams in my memory. Every win/loss counts. Duke is heads above all ACC teams right now.

    unc70. It does matter in this early season. If you don't win at least 20 games you can't get in. Then, they look at the SOS.

    You can learn a lot more about teams by looking at other measures. Some make State look good, others turn the rankings around. At this stage I don't think any of it matters a lot; too soon. And at this point in the season, I think Duke is in the lead over State or Carolina, and all three still have a lot of work to do.

    In that spirit, note the assist to turnover rates for the three schools.

    Yea. Me too. Going from #6 to #25 says it all. Too much hype. Same for K'Tucky.

    Agreed.... If this stat applied to women's soccer and unc was leading.... We would all be asked to stop and pay homage!!!

    Wait... Do they even keep stats in women's soccer??

    Lmbao!!!

    Wow,a trophy should be ordered. Just like the one the fans bought into in October when the pack won the national BB championship....!

    I wonder what they did with the trophy they bought this summer for the football teams win in the Fiesta bowl? ROFLMWAO!

    Its good to see the pack shooting well. I do find it amusing how polls and rankings are meaningless when State ranks well, and a measure of greatness when other teams do.

    That wouldn't be a bad idea... don't engrave it quite yet. It wouldn't be a risky investment.
