Look at this early-season schedule of ACC games and then tell me when is this league going to start playing their real games?????

Will this really be a boost to our league, to play all of these weak teams, at the beginning of the season? I know that they pretty much do it every year, but when will it change and when can we get down to real business?

I have followed this ACC basketball league for many years and I am one of those fans of the game, that helped put this league on the map and in my later years, I feel that I do deserve better than this….

I probably know as much or more about ACC Basketball, as anyone around here and each year I have to wait until January for the real games to get going, when the Conference action gets under way and we can see some real basketball…

Can we do better? You bet we can, when we get rid of these Miami of Ohios, Hofstras, Elons, Yales, Niagaras, FIU’s, Colgates, Crests, Gardner Webbs, Albanys, East Carolinas, and UNCG’s…..

Let’s go ahead and play some real teams in November, come on Duke, UNC and our other top teams….What are we waiting on, more of this?????

Florida State 78, Gardner-Webb 53

Duke 79, Miami (Ohio) 45

Albany @ Georgia Tech

North Carolina vs. Hofstra

NC State vs. East Carolina

Yale @ Boston College

Florida State @ FIU

Niagara @ Georgia Tech

    Is playing the number 3 team in the country, Kansas State, good enough for you, Andy? How about playing the number 2 team, Michigan State? I mean, we’d play the number 1 team, but, well, you can’t play yourself, now can you?

    Ol’ Roy was just kidding when he told you that night at Dudley’s gym that he loves the site, Andy. Time to start covering Greensboro’s favorite team (per Ed Hardin) and your national champions again. Also, it’s OK to go back being a State fan. Sidney Lowe might have a pretty good team this year.

    N.C. State should just discontinue their men’s basketball program…..

    State has already posted the “Best Team in ACC Basketball History”…..

    Nobody will ever come close….That Wolfpack bunch back in ’73-74 went something like (60-1)….Best team in ACC history….Unbeaten in 1973….Can’t be done again….(27-0)….

    Best team ever and as they say the rest of you guys, Michael and Christian are second best…..Dean and Mike keep on trying, but I could have won 900 games in 30 years with the schedule you guys have been playing….Thirty wins, for 30 years, and I’m at 900…..Should have kept going when I started at 22 and not quit at 28…I already had close to 200 victories overall in my sports when I stopped coaching and started writing and talking about it….I coached them all but, I could not top this team no matter what…..

    Best team ever ACC hoops N.C. State:
    David Thompson
    Tommy Burleson
    Monte Towe
    Tim Stoddard
    Mo Rivers…..And we had Phil Spence and Mark Moeller coming off of the bench…..

    That N.C. State team is the “Best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be”…..Nobody else comes close……Stoddard would have killed Chrissie Latener and Thompson will always be the best player ever in the ACC….

    The rest of you know I am right, but you are ashamed to admit it…..

    Chew on this, N.C. State could discontinue their men’s basketball program today and they still would remain the Best Basketball Team Ever with that 1974 edition…..

    All of you know I am right, but you won’t buy into it cause I’m coming to you from Raleigh with this news and not from Durham or Chapel Hill…..

    “The Best There Was, The Best There Is, and The Best There Ever Will Be”
    1974 N.C. State Wolfpack Men’s Basketballl Team……

    And the rest of you are playing for your spot in second place in ACC basketball history….

    Another good basketball lesson for today……
