Again the ACC is dreadful

20 posts in this topic

I wonder sometimes if the big programs getting the "one and done" guys is really worth it.

 

Duke and Carolina ruled the world when guys stayed in school 3-4 years and learned a system.  I think coaches give up on coaching "basketball" and just try to maximize their time with the phenoms.

 

I guess I am just old school and like seeing guys there for 4 years.

 

Coaching now has turned into recruiting, period

 

This.

 

UCLA under John Wooden:

  • 11 NCAA titles
  • 7 consecutive NCAA titles (1967–1973)
  • 12 NCAA title game appearances*
  • 18 Final Four appearances*
  • 10 consecutive Final Four appearances (1967–1976)
  • 25 Final Four wins*
  • 38 game NCAA Tournament winning streak (1964–1974)
  • 134 weeks ranked No. 1 in AP Top 25 Poll
  • 221 consecutive weeks ranked in AP Top 25 Poll (1966–1980)
  • 54 consecutive winning seasons (1949–2002)
  • 88 game men's regular season winning streak (1971–1974)
  • 4 undefeated seasons, 1964, 1967, 1972, 1973

 

And between Lew Alcindor (Kareem) and Bill Walton over 8 years, they had 7 consecutive Championships....

It's hard to gauge UVA. They looked solid in the ACC champ game, but they were playing duke. They do have upper class men though and play good defense. If they can get solid guard play, they'll be a tough out.

Take the Dick out of your mouth for two seconds. No one and I mean NO ONE gives a fug about your opinion on duke. Does every single post you make really have to be about duke. So annoying.

An 11 seed Tenn is mauling Mercer and UNC goes down in flames and UVA will lose to Memphis.

Now watch Louisville win back to back but fall apart next year.

The curse of John Swofford.

It's never easy. 2010 was a pretty easy walk through for duke - I think the hardest team they played was a 9 seed Baylor in the S16. But 99% it's gonna be a hard road for everyone.

I think it's funny that Coach K dissed the atlantic 10, but it's pretty clear they're the better conference (and have been, top to bottom, for the last 3 years)
