    unc may win, but I doubt it. Regardless, State is going to the NCAA tournament. If unc loses, the only chance they have to get in would be to beat Duke or win the ACC which we both know won't happen. You should focus and cheer unc's women's soccer team. I hear they're pretty good.

    Your All World wolf pack is tied with unc. A well below average UNC. Thats gotta stiiiiiiiiing. And on Saturday your All World team will be a full game behind. Ouch. Oops. Yikes. Wowza.

    You can keep saying this nonsense over and over and it still won't make it true. You sound like your president lying to the liberal press day after day with the same idiotic lies.

    No it wasn't. For once. Losing to UNC Saturday will be devastating to your All World team though. Sorry bout that.

    Beating unc was not signature. Sorry bout that.

    Beating state is become less signature by the day. Sorry bout that.

    Maryland has a chance of sliding in and bumping UNC out. They have wins over State and Duke, have UNC/Clemson on their homecourt, at WF/GT, and get a rematch with Virginia for their lasr game. They could easily win the first 4 and, if they knock off Virginia, they will be in the hunt. ACC won't get 5 teams in unless a team other than the top 4 wins the ACCT.

    I'm honestly not so sure about five teams heading to the big dance. I honestly think it could be four: Duke, Miami, NCSU, and UVA. I'm not just being an "ABCer" with that statement, but the simple fact is that UVA has a signature win to go along with a respectable record: they beat NCSU. UNC will have no such wins at the end of the regular season (UNLV, maybe?), so the only way they get into the NCAA tourney is by winning the ACC tournament... which won't happen, of course.

    That would be fine with me, and I'd even settle for 4th place if it came to that.

    I just want State in that top four, and I really don't care where any other team is.

    UVA could hit a wall and both State and UNC could be in top four.

    The winner of this game is in the drivers seat for a top-4 spot in the ACC tournament seedings. The loser is on the outside looking in.

    State has as good of a chance as anyone to win the ACC tourny. With our current RPI and a few more wins, we should be in the big dance. I would like to see that settled before the ACC. Victory in Chapel Hill would be the cherry on top.

    That would be nice. I think they will unless UNC gets really hot. UNC has a tougher schedule than State and VA.

    I would like to see NCSU stay in the top 4 so they do not have to play the first day of the ACC tournament.

  • gamnell Feb 20, 2013

    I don't think the regular season standings matter too much. 5 ACC teams are going to the the big dance. State, UNC, and VA are going to the NCAA's unless their seasons fall apart, which I doubt. State is going regardless if they win on Saturday. UNC needs this win more than State does, but I still think UNC goes eevn if they lose. And while I'm on my soapbox, Miami is not a top 3 team in the nation. I'm predicting an early exit for them in the NCAA's. I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
