#5 North Carolina 81
UNC - Duke, conf. champ. or MM, head-to-head or just extent of progress, is looking epic this year, as it has been many times before. Last regular season game, too, 3/9 at North Carolina.
We beat Alabama tonight - at Tuscaloosa.
Man, something about UCF sure ate the ears off your Easter rabbit, didn't it? Wouldn't have been, oh, 34-27 would it?
That was only one game. Sure, they ended up with more points against a beat up team, but that has nothing to do with my objections to any team that plays the easiest schedule in the country claiming anything like a national title.O Really wrote: ↑Wed Mar 06, 2019 8:40 amMan, something about UCF sure ate the ears off your Easter rabbit, didn't it?

Depends on what you mean by that. I was in effect complaining that both Duke and Auburn were playing mostly weak nonconference opponents and zero or nearly zero true away games all through Oct. - Dec., pp. 8-10. The ACC sched. is clearly tough this year, but idk how Duke's nonconference sched. compared to other teams. Seeing what Duke and Auburn did my suspicion then was that most or all top tier teams do the same thing, but I never checked up on it nor on the nonconference strengths of schedule for teams in lesser conferences.
1800 ET, ESPN.Duke’s Zion Williamson officially ruled out against North Carolina
... While Williamson is being held out on Saturday, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski sounded cautiously optimistic that his star freshman could return for the ACC tournament. The hope is that Williamson can play a few games in Charlotte and get into better game shape before the NCAA tournament.
“I want to give him a chance to get in game shape. I would be surprised if he wasn’t ready by the ACC Tournament, Krzyzewski said Friday. “Hopefully we’ll play some games there, not just one, and get ready for the NCAA Tournament.” ...
The saga continues.LSU announces indefinite suspension of Will Wade
One day after it was reported by Yahoo Sports that LSU head coach Will Wade was overheard on federal wiretaps discussing a recruiting “offer” with FBI defendant Christian Dawkins, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva announced that the coach has been suspended indefinitely....
Basketball pretty much takes care of easy schedules with its playoffs. Even teams with losses in tough conferences get a chance to come back. Auburn has never been much in basketball and has rarely gotten past the 2 or 3 basketball schools in the sec.Vrede too wrote: ↑Sat Mar 09, 2019 2:11 pm#5 Tennessee 80
Wow. 1st time Auburn has beaten a top 5 team since Arkansas . . . in 1995!!! None of its current players were even born yet. Excellent regular season finale, will probably even pass UCF in the rankings. Is great for all of the ACC teams.
