This is why no one should take bleacher report seriously. But read this one for its comedic value. No mention of NC State in the article.http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1438462-unc-basketball-high-scoring-tar-heels-will-challenge-duke-for-acc-championship
Although I admit Bleacher Report is just above the N&O for sports quality -- which means the N&O is really REALLY bad -- you should know that UNC will challenge Duke for the ACC championship. Need proof?
Two years ago, UNC was rebuilding. Who won the ACC regular season in the last game of the year? Oh, and Duke returned several key seniors too. Last year, Duke was on fire early in the season dominating the pre-season thanks to the player God sent to earth just to show us how basketball was played (or so his ego would have us believe) Austin Rivers. Who won the ACC regular season? The last two years, Duke won game 1 between the two and lost game 2. Do you notice a trend?
Of course, UNC won't win the ACC tournament in part because K puts huge emphasis on winning it and Roy Williams does not. Still, just because UNC doesn't deserved to be ranked now (this is coming from a UNC fan too) doesn't mean they won't catch up. History says they will. The Roy Williams system is complex and hard to learn but once learned it is very effective.
And the N&O is horrible, to put it politely. Carlton Tudor isn't Stephen A. Smith bad, he is still worst than most.
