It will lose a lot more after UNC bows out tomorrow. Roy and the boys have no interest in being there.

You really think UNC will lose to GT? As much as I hate to watch UNC win, I think I could get over it if I won some money, so I might have to lay a small wager on that one. :)

Just wanted to make sure you realized the Heels are not going to give the Yellow Jackets one. Only the Hokies apparently.

Unlike GT (if they were playing the Heels), I think that VT might actually have a shot at beating UNC. Probably the best shot a team has had to beat UNC in the first round in quite a while.

Not saying they will, only that it wouldn't completely shock me.

Yeah, there's a good chance that Lawson will be on the bench anyway, so you're probably right.

I'd love to see VT beat UNC. It would mean VT is in the tournament, (brother-in-law is a huge VT fan and I live 30 miles away, so I gotta enjoy when they do well other than against UNC just to live here) and would guarantee a national championship for UNC, (that one last, you can get beat at any time if you're not ready, right before the tournament starts)... :lol:

I don't get why the media makes such a fuss over teams like Clemson and Kansas losing in their conference tournaments. Both teams are slated for the Big Dance. Who gives a crap about busting ass this week? Save your legs. Let the worthless piles of crap like NCSU and Ga Tech fight their way in. If I were Roy Williams, I'd sit my starters :lol:. You won the regular season. Sit em and get ready for what really matters.

In Clemson's case, that's a loss before the NCAA tournament to the worst team in the conference. And it's not as if in the recent past they have lost in their conference tournament and went on to have success in the NCAA tournament.

Man, did you guys just see that play where Carolina blocked a shot out and all the players took off to the other basket - all running right past the ball and nobody went for the ball? Sloppy, their gonna lose without Lawson...

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
