    I guess those two would fall into that category. I was only referring to fans on this board. I have no idea what goes on with the ABC crowd outside of here. If Dook or State loses, it is just a loss to me. I only care to see them lose when they are playing UNC. Otherwise, I always want the Conference to succeed.

    GO HEELS!

    Nope, not this year. When State blows, and has no hope, then you're probably right. It's a crutch to pull for Duke.

    FWIW, I'm not pulling for Duke any more. Those days are over. I enjoy seeing Carolina fans in an uproar whenever Duke wins. So that won't ever change. But I couldn't care less what Duke does. Once State is eliminated from any kind of championship contention, I'll pull for Duke as a backup. But my heart won't be in it. I have no love for Duke. They're just the enemy of my enemy in Chapel Hill!

    I have 2 neighbors. Both are BIG Carolina fans. One went to App. St.,the other to ECU. They describe themselves as ABD fans. They happily admit they'd take a loss to ANYBODY if Duke would lose. They just want to see Duke lose. Is that the Carolina Way??? Same thing you accuse TBK of.

    Let me rephrase. It WON'T happen this Season! Both Duke and State will get UNC, but only Duke will be ranked in the Top 5. That ship has sailed for State and UNC!

    You're right, it won't happen this year. There are only about 12 more days remaining in this year. So it will have to happen in January or February of 2013.

    I disagree. Stanford has alot of weapons, most of which arent playing as well as they should be. While Powell may be the Cards premier player, Bright is a great outside threat and Gage off the bench hit key shots last night. Stanford is no Duke and to compare the 2 is nonsense. That said, I think there will be a few match-up problems for Duke this year and the game will be alot more competitive than Duke fans may want. If State fixes the careless turnover problem and continues to hit key free throws at the end of games, I say its a toss-up.

    Preaseason rankings are what you would think they are. A prediction of where people think a team will end up ranked at the end of the year given all the variables that make up that team. A team dependent on freshmen will take longer to get there than a team with alot of experienced returning players. So the ranking of a team like UK early in the season isn't as close of an indication of how good they are now as it is of where they should be at the end. Conversely, the preseason ranking of Duke or State should be more accurate.

    Hold your horses there, TBK. Stanford is basically a one man show. Duke has far more weapons than the Cardinal did last night. The game was much closer than it should have been.

    So the importance of preseason rankings changes depending on how it fits into your arguement.....I see

    Preseason rankings don't mean much for teams without any returning upperclassmen. Duke and State both had a good share of returning upperclassmen as opposed to UK.
