ACC is overrated.

And of course, Maryland proceeds to make a dumb ass out of me.

Then again, Memphis is making a dumb ass out of a lot of people right now. They definitely deserved a #1 seed.

They just couldn't handle the Tall and Lengthy players for Memphis.

I give Cal credit for the job he's doing there, but he's getting guys that couldn't qualify to play in a REAL league. He snubbed NCS because of their, and ACC, entrance requirements. It's kinda sleazeball like if you ask me.

Someone mentioned it earlier. Since the expansion, across ALL sports the ACC is awful.QUOTE]

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever read on this board. Yes, I will say that the Big East due to it's early tourney results is a better overall conference than the ACC this year in basketball. But if you really think the ACC is awful, you should stop posting here immediatly so we don't have to waste time reading this non sense.

By the way, the ACC has been by far the most dominate baseball conference for the last 4 or 5 seasons.

Lastly, since we're talking about all sports in the ACC, do you really think the Big East is good at anything other than basketball, which it was manufactured to be good at? BE can't hold a candle to the ACC throughout their entire athletic departments.

Sure the Big 12 has some dogs but there are 5-6 teams that are better than anything the ACC has not named Carolina or Duke.

I also notice this trend in the ACC minus Duke and Carolina.

I keep seeing that a couple of you want to exclude Carolina and Duke from the ACC. Whether you believe it or not, they are still in the conference and until they're not, they alone make the ACC better than most any conference out there.

Should have prefaced my post with Sports that MATTER.

Yes the ACC has been very good in baseball. Although Oregon St beating UNC back to back years was painful.

College soccer they have been great as well.

Hoops and football are the two biggies.

A Duke/Carolina match up in the final four would be great for the ACC. Every third year or so it seems there is a chance it could happen...then it doesn't.

You can say that the ACC is overrated but they weren't expected to do as well as the Big East and other than the Wake Forest fiasco they are right on top of the Big 12 as far as teams left. Other than the Big East there isn't a conference tougher during the regular season than the ACC. But...toward the end of the season people started to realize that it was the Big East and then everyone else. If they hadn't come to this realization then why would the Big 10 have gotten 7 seeds in? Which was the same number as the ACC.

The ACC had a poor showing but I think it shows more than anything that the Big 10 and Big 12 were a little bit underrated.

and year in year out the ACC is one of, if not the best hoops conference in the nation. Football has not been the best but again what is the BE good at outside basketball? The answer is nothing. I just can't really understand how BE fans are calling out ACC fans when it comes to anything other than basketball, which again you were manufactured to be good at. It's the only sport your good at. To even attempt comparing the BE's overall athletic programs to the ACC's overall athletic programs, is asinine.

I can't argue that the BE is not the best hoops conference this year because it is but to suggest all ACC sports are awful, as you said, is again, asinine.

Don't the BE have about 10 more teams than everybody else?

Yeah, I'm exaggerating, but in all seriousnous, who here can even name them all without looking it up?
