    And ugly. Just look at the cheerleaders. But hey, Asia is almost the majority over there. Maybe it will get better.

    Carolina is moving up the seedings while dook is dropping.

    How is yet another Dook flameout to a team UNC beat three times this season working our Paula?

    Wow...it's only December...conference play hasn't started yet. I don't think many Carolina fans expected a great year this year...if they can get in the Big Dance and make it to the second round or Sweet 16...that would be about what I expect. They are by no means a great team and don't have any great talent...they can improve their hustle and toughness, but that is up to the players

    I think if ANY ACC team gets an invitation, they're automatically no worse than a 12-13 seed. Hard to imagine an ACC team as a 14-15 seed.

    Not the bottom. Just not artificially pushed to the top every year. Level playing field. Now if we can just do something about Ron Cherry and Karl Hess. Until that happens, it still isn't a level playing field.

  • BlueDevils00 Dec 28, 2012

    You're right, a 12 seed is extraordinarily generous. Who exactly has UNC beaten to deserve a spot, if the tournament was today? McNeese St is their highest RPI win, somewhere in the mid 150's.

    Unc-Cheat will have a harder time recruiting when you can't offer free grades and degrees. So the bottom of the ACC will be your home. Enjoy!!!

    The NIT made an exception so they could have the Carolina "brand" in their tournament, even if they weren't any good.

    That doesn't apply to the NCAA tournament.

    And there's a good possibility Carolina has a LOSING record this year anyway. :)

    Ugh... another shameless example of UNC bias in the media. Giving this team a 12 seed in the big dance is extraordinarily generous. I think UNC's best-case scenario is to squeek into the NIT, and get bounced in the first round in a rematch with Texas.

    Duke has only been past the sweet 16 6 times in the past 20 years. Are you telling me in those 14 out of 20 years that they didn't make it they didn't have no "fire power"?

    Don't know how well everyone looked at the bracket, but if UNC were to win the 12 seed play-in (1st rnd) game, they would face Georgetown, and if NC State and UNC gets by the next game...

    They would battle each other.

  • TruthBKnown Banned Again01 Dec 27, 2012

    I'm still not convinced they make it in at all.

    Maybe if the rest of the ACC is as bad as they say, Carolina could get enough wins to squeak in.

  • BeastOnTheHill Dec 27, 2012

    oh good, we're in! Not bad after losing the fire power we had last year. NBA level Fire power dook fans can only dream of.

    Bracket projections a third of the way into the season before league play begins? Well, that certainly has to be accurate.
