    Interesting thread, Ken.

    The media ranked both State and Carolina high in the preseason, something neither school lived up to.

    On paper, State is the better team. Carolina improved a lot since their first meeting, but they are a younger team, and have more room to improve. I don't read too much into Carolina beating State, but the game did show Roy's coaching ability and the intensity and desire of the Carolina players.

    Carolina is definitely trending upward, but they have a tough road ahead with their remaining games, while State has already played most of their difficult games.

    I'll take Roy's coaching over Gott's, but I think the matchups in the ACCT as well as the NCAAT will have a lot to do with which team fares better.

    To answer your question, State has older, more experienced players, but Carolina has the better coach. All factors considered, the teams are pretty even, but State may go further in the tourneys.

    It is obvious team A is the better team. Stats don't lie.

    oooooooooo Seth Davis says that Kenpom might be one the sites members are free to look at ....

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/college-basketball/news/20130221/hoop-thoughts/

    On the NCAA's own internal website, there is a link that reads "Links to Other Sites." Those sites are: NCAA RPI, Polls, Sagarin Ratings, CollegeRPI.com, RPI Ratings, LRMC Rankings, Pomeroy Rankings, Composite Ranking, Conference Monitoring, ESPN BPI. Jeanie Boyd, a veteran NCAA staffer who works closely with the committee from inside the room, told us that she has seen members arrive at selection week with their own rankings that aren't among those listed. Those other metrics are definitely a part of the discussion. If there is a big discrepancy between the rankings, the committee will go into a discussion to probe further into the numbers.

    Everyone knows he's the ultimate clown. Even he doesn't believe most of the BS he spews. When he can't think of any more dumb conspiracies, he trying to find other ways to find and explain failure. He needs to start working smarter and not harder.......Just look in the mirror and the reflection of failure would stare right back.

    Jealousy brings out the worst in State fans especially SAC! They can only dream of having the success that Carolina has had. Instead they have 2 championships and excuses! Bitter to the end!
