    And overcoming the officiating that was so biased against state!

    Miami is still in the driver's seat. To beat State at home is solid. Still State was only a play away from beating this team.

    UNC scored some points in OT against VT. I'm looking forward to see them play 40 minutes of basketball.

    Actually the NCAA tournament is the Flagship's home away from home.

    The Tar Heels have appeared in the NCAA finals nine times, have participated in a record 18 NCAA Final Fours,[11] have made it into the NCAA tournament 43 times (second-most all-time),[3][12] and have amassed a total of 108 victories (second most all-time).Thanks for playing though. Facts are so enjoyable! LOLOL

    Which games are officiated by Karl Hess? I'm predicting several of them -- all wins.

    I think that thinking UNC will beat Duke, State, and Virginia at home is a bit fortuitous don't you. I am not saying it can not happen. UNC is good but I don't know if they are that good.

    That's a worst case scenario IMHO:

    I think:

    @ Miami, @ Duke, @ Clemson = L
    Virginia, @ GT = Should be W
    State, Duke, = Should be a W, depending on Brown and Kelly
    @ Maryland = Tossup
    FSU - should be a W

    The NIT......Carolina's home away from home.

    If they do that, they will definitely get a bid to the NIT. It won't be as close as 09-10, they will definitely make it.

    UNC is looking like they will finish about .500 in the conference.

    Pretty good assessment. The ACC is so hard to predict this year, which really makes every game fun. I think they lose at Duke and Miami, beat Maryland on the road in a tight game. State at Chapel Hill..tossup. They will beat Clemson and GT even though they are road games. While they are by no means a great team this year, they are showing slow but steady improvement...11-7 ACC sounds about right.

    Now back to sports after dealing with 903id!ot! Carolina is still a mystery. I never know what to expect from game to game. I think at Miami and at Duke are losses and at Maryland most likely. Every other game is winnable even though thats not probable!

  • blueduke4 Jan 31, 2013

    11-7 if they continue to show sluggish improvement.

    K's pockets are deeper.......even though Lehigh would disagree!

  • 4tarheels Jan 31, 2013

    4-3 in ACC as of today. I predict a 11-7 finish for UNC.

    Swofford will take this schedule into account and assign referees accordingly. Best case scenario, they steal one or two in addition to the FSU game (although FSU always has a chance in a close game with Snaer).

  • unc70 Jan 31, 2013

    While anything could happen, most likely is about 4 more losses for UNC for a total of 7 ACC losses and a third-place tie with State and Virginia.

    @Duke and @Miami are likely losses.

    Duke in CH and @MD are tossups.

    State in CH, @Clemson, and @GT are 2:1 odds favoring UNC

    The other three home games have UNC highly favored.

  • blueduke4 Jan 31, 2013
    Sports Legend

    Sounds about right.

  • seedofdoubt Jan 31, 2013
    Sports Legend

    After these two home games, seeing UNC is not a good road team, and have already lost to State and Virginia, the heels are looking at 7+ losses.
    @ Miami = L
    @Duke = L
    Virginia = ?
    @GT = L
    NCSU = L
    @Clemson = L FSU = W @Maryland = L Duke = L
