Poor baby...some will never understand. ACC schedules 101 (for those who can't think):
Both Duke and UNC play the top 4 teams 5 times. The difference being UNC plays UVA twice, while Duke plays FSU twice. Now, between UVA and FSU, who would you desire to play twice?
It's pretty simple. Sometimes, you have an easy rotation, sometimes you don't. But, the difference in Duke and UNC fans is that we will gladly admit when Duke has an easy rotation. UNC fans are too embarrassed and/or ignorant to admit the same.
Heck, just dawned on me!
Duke's 5 games against the top 4 are 3 home, 2 away.
UNC's 5 games against the top 4 are 2 home, 3 away.
Wow...Duke has it made!
BTW, if you add the fifth place team to the equation, it does change.
Duke's six games are 4 home, 2 away
UNC's six games are 3 home, 4 away.
It just keeps getting easier for the Devils!
well, good thing for the Heels that Duke has played more at home because they have been outstanding on the road in conference this year.
The entire "who has the tougher schedule" is a joke made up by people who like to make excuse! I say if you are a championship team then you will beat the teams in your way and move on.
This arguement is almost as dumb as saying that a team won a championship because they had an easy bracket. Still have to win 6 games!
exactly Larry. I don't care who played who and where. I just care about the w's. You don't control who you play, you can only control the outcome.
