Duke as a 1 seed?

32 posts in this topic

Why is no one talking about that as even a possibility? If they win the ACC tourney what makes them less deserving? They dont have a bad loss as all the teams they lost 2 are going to be in the tourney. I mean seriously Michigan is their worst loss and that was on the road to a team that they had already beaten. Do they deserve it? Probably not, but hey they are not the ones that lost early in their conference tourney. Who else should really be a lock on the 1 line besides UNC, I mean every other team they are discussing have a bad loss or two or an extremely weak schedule. Michigan St lost by 35 to the heels, Louisville lost to minny, Pitt to providence, Oklahoma is a joke, Memphis has beat almost the same calibur of competition with the exception of two or three wins as Utah State who has 1 more loss, yet if they lose their conference final they are right on the bubble. Tell me why any of those teams deserve to be there over Duke besides the Duke sucks I hate them all Unc fans are sure to post. Provided they take care of Maryland and then FSU tomorrow.

If they DO win the ACC Tournament they better be a #1 seed.

UNC

Louisville

Duke

UConn/Pitt

But I really doubt Duke gets a #1 seed. No lower than #2 seed though.

Im not saying it will be an easy game. Just making note that UNC will not be able to claim conference champs this year because according to the league that goes to the tourney winner.

^And there will be a big fat asterisk as the league MVP didn't play in this tournament.

Duke has more losses than anyone in the top 5

You also have to look at who they lost 2 and by how much. Last time I checked they didnt get trounced by 30 plus points as both Louisville and Mich St did. I think the Heels and Pitt are locks for 1's but to say the top 4 teams are not more debatable then they have been in the past few years is just plain dumb.

Where do they put the asterisk? Is it on the trophy or do they add it to the bottom of the banner that the winning team hangs? Or better yet, does Carolina hang a banner for it? Im just curious.

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
