Its early but scary!

I am hoping this early season will help teams get better by March. Carolina fans didn't expect to be 2-2 two days before Thanksgiving. Lots of talent BUT. The only consolation in losing to Minnesota and Vandy is that maybe these teams will compete in their conferences and possibly make The Big Dance. Roy has got to find a combination that will work. Heres an idea. Leslie McDonald should be getting more playing time than Justin Watts. I think its great he(Watts) hustles in practice but last time I checked practices should improve game skills. Game skills are not there for him just yet. And most obviously if Larry Drew is going to be a stud point guard he better get it in gear. Barnes and Bullock will be fine. Hensen and Zeller need to eat 20,000 calories a day! Fatten up boys,its going to be a long year!

NC State has a young and exciting team.(They have been young for the last decade) Having a chance to watch this team play on TV a few times was a nice experience. These kids can play! Even in the loss to Georgetown they showed signs of being really good. Its up to Sidney Lowe to find a way to make it all mesh.This should be his best team. It seems like Gonzalez has been there longer than ever but he has steadily improved and has a chance to mentor this young "raw talent".

Duke is Duke. They are loaded with talent and are the class of the ACC at this point. That really hurt to say! Dick Vitale is constantly sweating Coach K. I usually like Dukie V but he really got on my nerves last night. Duke has all the tools to repeat! But am not saying they will. Their match up with Kansas State should be very entertaining!

Wake Forest is a mess! This team won a game in the NCAAs last year. I think they just lost to my nephews Jr High team. That new coach really has his hands full! Georgia Tech lost to Kennesaw State and I will wait a while to talk about them. Just saw Virginia get HOUSED by Washington. Havent seen Va.Tech play yet but have heard they are pretty good. While Vitale stopped jabbering about Duke. He did mention how talented Maryland was and that they have been exciting thus far. I have not seen Clemson, FloridaSt, or BC. But heard they(BC)lost to a no name school. ACC-BIG 10 challange is next week. Lets hope it gets better!

Happy Turkey Day Folks!

well done borsk.....on the ncsu side watching them play live they should be good and compete however if we would have had Tracy Smith in the paint would have been a much different game against Hoya's and you cant shoot 37% 2nd half- We have a tough schedule next 4 weeks but should toughen us up for conference play-

I think you guys playing a much tougher out of conference schedule will help their chances in March of being selected for the Big Dance.

Javier Gonzalez would be starting at UNC right now.
