ACC Basketball Scheduling

7 posts in this topic

Ok before I ask please don't get mad at me because I know I am about to sound ignorant and stupid and whatever else pops in your mind. I don't watch college basketball religiously, analyze players and schedules, and don't know the starting lineup of my team, so you can even say maybe I am not even a true fan of a college bball team whatever.

But is there a reason why UNC is not playing Clemson in Clemson this year? Is that usual for teams to play once in the conference. I thought that each team played the conference teams twice a home-and-home like the NFL does with the divisions. Someone please help me out.

it used to be that way, but now there are so many teams in the acc that it would be impossible to play all of the teams twice. They do the same thing in football now.

If the Big East tried that, they wouldn't have a non-conference season.

But, now that I think of it, is there a method to the madness of who plays twice in a year in the ACC? The Big XII and SEC I know play their divisional teams twice and the non-divisions once. I didn't see that in the ACC, so I'm guessing that there's some sort of permanent matchups that will happen twice a year, and the others rotate.

Yes that is correct, the ACC uses a certain method to allow Rivalry games to be played every year, the big one being duke vs. carolina. Thats all the ACC really cares about is those two playing each year, other schools like Miami and VT may only see duke and carolina once, Im not sure of the formula exactly on how they figure it out but i know there are 12 teams so they play each other at least once and then 5 of them at least twice thus adding up a 16 game conference champion and so on... Only thing that sucks kind of is that UNC will not play Wake twice each year or state for that matter, it just depends on the rotation...

Wouldn't be impossible, would just mean dropping a few games against Radford and William and Mary.

I am old enough to remember when UNC/Duke/NCSU/Wake played the big 4 tournament against each other even before the conference season started. It was a great thing, and an exciting way to start the season.

Each team has two rivals. They always play those rivals in a home and home series. Of the other nine teams, you play a home and home with three of them, a home game only against three, and a road game only against three. The nine "non-rival" teams rotate every year in a three year cycle.

I miss having nine teams. Things worked so well.

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
