Heading into the postseason, what's your take?
Duke is a serious Final Four contender
We just may have kept the Duke Foot Injury from ending our season for the third straight year
Miami is really backing into the tournament phase
So much for those little Tools and their VAUNTED twelve-guard lineup, at least until next Saturday
Still not going to miss Maryland, College Park at all
Just enjoying the ride
I have some gripe or other but will hold it for now

NORTH CAROLINA STATE (11-5, 0-2) @ #25 FLORIDA STATE (13-3, 1-1)

So here's our huge summary of the results in that first extra-Duke edition of Two Dukies Screw Up the ACC So Badly It Fails Even to Amuse:

bc/clem - - both picked right
duke/gt - - both picked wrong
uva/ncsu - - both picked wrong
wake/mifl - - both picked wrong
fsu/umcp - - both picked wrong
vpi/ncch - - both picked right (of course - - nice coaching, Baldy!)
Hey, Florida State lost at College Park over the weekend, but is upon info and cred the same team that won at Georgia Tech five days before Christmas, and as we all know, winning at Georgia Tech is some huge feat this season.  So, in other words, the ACC is well-primed, even at this early date, to drive us all insane.     

Florida State 78, North Carolina State 74.     

The Seminoles (yep, unlike a certain Washington, D.C. football operation, this mascot is totally fine) remain just barely ranked after dropping a strange one in the soggy confines of College Park. Not to be outdone, Low Sid managed to lose to what should be the league’s worst team, but on his own home floor. And, around these parts, we got both games wrong.

Florida State 74, North Carolina State 68.

MARYLAND, COLLEGE PARK (10-4, 1-0) @ WAKE FOREST (11-3, 1-1)

Hey, did L.D. Williams lead your team in scoring over the weekend?  If so, you probably lost on two late-game plays by Mountain Dews at the CSI Center.  Meanwhile, Sweaty is trying to erase memories of that loss at the hands of co-equal British sovereigns William III and Mary II by beating up on far weaker competition: the ACC.

Wake Forest 79, Maryland, College Park 78.    

By the way, after the awesome predictions Matt I turned in over the weekend, we’re opening up a sports betting hotline at 1-900-LSE-CASH. A big thanks to all four coaches in today’s edition for inspiring us on our new career. The odds are not good that the Moist One can develop and implement a successful strategy two games in a row, even if he’s facing his equal in non-game management.  

Wake Forest 82, Maryland, College Park 75.

Actually, there's a pretty significant difference between the Redskins and the Seminoles. Florida State actually sought permission from (and pay licensing fees to) the Seminole Nation to use the nickname, Chief Osceola, and all of that other stuff in relation to Free Shoes. They basically run all of the "Seminole" depictions past the tribe to make sure that there's nothing that can be construed as offensive. They go the extra mile -- so I have no problem with that nickname.


"Redskins" is simply Dan Snyder continuing a horrid tradition.

Oh, for heaven's sake, Listless Len!!!!!!!! I guess this is going to be another one of those 7-9 or 8-8 years where the Noids claim that their ACC "cred" gives them the necessary cachet to join the NCAA Tournament field. And at the TLCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC, too. At least Goonio & company figured out how to handle the Twerps - - and we got it right, for a change.
