There's the bar. 6 in the Sweet 16 is going to be tough but I definitely thing 4 in the Elite Eight and 2 in the Final Four are completely achievable. I actually think 3 ACC teams will make the Final Four this year.
If the ACC even gets close to matching that then I would consider it a success. I don't see that as being a problem. It wouldn't surprise me to see Duke & Carolina playing 1 more time, round 4 for the title. Duke, ND, NC & UL is a possible F4.
Last year, the ACC earned 25 units - one for each of 7 teams in the tourney and one for each of 18 wins before the Final Four.
When I filled out a bracket this year, I had us earning 21 units with 9 teams and 12 wins. I had 4 teams in the Sweet Sixteen, 3 in the Elite 8 and 2 in the Final Four Duke and Louisville). That's exceptional by any standard except last year. Would that be disappointing or cause for celebrating?
I would celebrate if it's UNC instead of Duke.
If Louisville is in the F4 I will be celebrating no matter what the rest of the ACC does.
