The ACC/Big Ten Challenge goes the way of the Big Ten for the first time ever after the Wednesday evening results and the ACC might be in for a long year if they can’t even take The Challenge which we had been winning every year……
The ACC was something like (10-0) versus the Big Ten before last night’s finishes which included a total collapse by Clemson at home against Illinois. “You can’t have a huge comeback without a Total Collapse”, that according to ESPN’s Jay Bilas.
Duke was playing weak at Wisconsin and how times have the Blue Devils been bullied around by a bunch of cheese-heads or buried by the Badgers, if you are so lnclined to go there.
North Carolina did not roll over Michigan State back on Tuesday night and what’s up with that? Are the Heels that far behind on their rebuilding project after last season’s success with the nets coming down at the Final Four……
Wake Forest lost James Johnson and Jeff Teague and it does appear that now we will now really see how the Deacons produce with Dino Gaudio’s players. CJ Harris from Mount Tabor has played steady in the early season and he could help, but Gaudio has been playing with Skip Prosser’s money and now it is time for Dino to pay the piper…..
What ever happened to Johnny Thomas from Greensboro Day School at N.C. State? I never see his name around the box score any more and does State have anybody that can make this team a contender???? From the outside looking in, it doesn’t look very promising……
Does anybody really know what time it is?
It’s time to find out if there is something wrong with the ACC this year in the sport of men’s basketball. I thought Duke might be a Top Ten team, but last night they finished like a team on the run. On the run, headed down a one-way highway, headed for the post-season NIT.
I was getting sick of hearing the ESPN announcers, Brent Musberger and Bob Knight, talk about how strong this Bo Ryan Wisconsin-coached team was playing. The Badger big men were making Duke look like small-framed children, the announcers were saying…..
I was saying and thinking this, “Duke is our cornerstone and how do the Devils let some cheeseheads beat our league in Madison, Wisconsin of all places”?
Here’s the obit, on the good thing we had going, until it all came crashing to a screeching halt last night. This is worse than when the Russians beat the US back in 1972…..At least Doug Collins, Mike Bantom and the boys got ripped off by the refs. Last night the ACC got smacked around by a bunch of Cheeseheads…….
The obit:(You might say blame it on Florida State and the Seminoles, but they are not a fault, since they really haven’t had basketball at that school since back in 1972, when they went to the Final Four with my uncle Hugh Durham as the head coach.)
The ACC and Big Ten conferences came into last night with three wins apiece in head-to-head matchups. Wisconsin’s 73-69 upset of No. 6 Duke set the stage for the Ohio State Buckeyes (6-1) to put the Big Ten over the top with a ten-point win over Florida State, ending a decade of frustration against the Atlantic Coast Conference.
