Go UNC! I assume that is what State fans will be saying tonight.

    State's going to win the ACC regular season (and championship), so what everyone else does doesn't matter to us.

    Go CANES!!!

    What a refreshing perspective. I do the same.

    I will be pulling for neither team tonight. I am an ACC fan and if my team isn't playing in the game, then I just watch the game for its entertainment value. If on the other hand, an ACC team is playing an out of conference game, I pull for the ACC team regardless of who they are....UNC, Duke, Maryland, Va, etc.

    I'll concede your point. The only time I saw UNC play this season was parts of the UVA game, and they looked bad. Real bad. Perhaps I am letting the talk of their demise by the lunatic fringe cloud my judgement too much.

    Ok...Ill play along a little longer. Honestly, for me personally, the jury is still out on the holes. Ive seen spurts of good play followed by terrible runs and out of sync play. I havent watched but a few minutes of Miami this season so I judge them solely by stats.

    On paper Miami should finish well ahead of the boys from Chapel Hill, but Ive been around ACC basketball too long to count out unc or duke this early in conference play.

    Who do you think will finish higher in the standings - Miami or UNC?

    Not exactly what I said, but as it serves yourself. I dont expect State to win out, and I also dont think unc winning against Miami in the 3rd game of 18 will have a huge effect on the Pack. How the Wolpack play their schedule will have more of an impact.

    Hans, it has been expressed to you multiple times that we know you're not an NCSU fan. Don't insult us by suggesting otherwise. Please take your obsession with NCSU fanse back --------------------------------------------> to the carolina forum.

    Thx,

    Mgmt.

    Actually, we pull for the same team. So, you expect State to win out and not need a little help along the way, I see. OK.

  • Last Word Jan 10, 2013

    If State handles their own games against Miami and evey other team in the ACC, a unc loss/win wont matter at all for the Pack. Ill start pulling for Hans team when he starts pulling for mine.

  • Coach Doherty Jan 10, 2013

    That's logic to this illogical Debbie Downer.

  • Killing Time Jan 10, 2013

    Get out.

    I could be wrong (calm down, don't worry - it doesn't happen very often), but from what I've seen so far, I think Miami will have more wins in the ACC than Carolina this season. Now, if we're serious about State finishing at or near the top, it would make more sense to pull for UNC in this one. What say ye? Can the lunatic fringe pull for a certain team for pragmatic reasons, or does the obsession trump all and reaffirm that it is better for something bad to happen to UNC than something good happen to State?
