I'm glad you had a good time in Clemson. I'll let you know if I make the trip up to Syracuse this year.

The date sets up really nice. If you like leaf peeping, salmon fishing, Baseball HoF, Niagara Falls, Gambling, Winery Tours, Golf all very close to Syracuse.

RE: What A Difference the Newbies Make
As a fan of a newbie, who was very happy to compete in the Big East, and carry that banner while we were there (more men's hoops wins than anyone in the league during our time there), I am equally happy to be in the ACC. And while the Big East was a great fit for us, I think the ACC is an even better one, for all our sports.

Hopefully we can earn some credits for the league this month.

The boxing HoF is in Rome (close) and the soccer HoF is in Oneida (a drive, but doable).

There's also a lot of good beer in the region (and city) 03-wink

Middle Ages has a good ale ale, Saranac makes a number of great beers (a great pale ale, a decent IPA, an excellent winter special, and an amazing Irish red), Ithaca brewing makes a great beer (flower power - I think it's an IPA, but I could be wrong), magic hat (vt) has a great apricot pale ale (#9), Blue Point toasted Lager is phenomenal, and southern tier and Brooklyn brewery are both pretty decent.

There are also a number of very small breweries, like paradox brewery if you find yourself in the ADK's.

What A Difference the Newbies Make
Looking at the TV numbers for Louisville v Duke & ND v Duke in the ACC tourney, I think they show value.

Of course this thread was solely about basketball until he brought in football when he didn't have another argument. Only CV would try and argue that winning 4 regular season basketball games (not even 4 in a row) trumps a Final 4 appearance.

F4 appearance>ACC Championship in my book. It shouldn't be...but that is how teams are judged now...all about the NCAAs.

I bet ClemsonVegas didn't even see the Tigers play a basketball game this year.

Not too long ago it wasn't that way. The ACC was much more like the Ivy League in that the Conference Championships carried more weight than competing on a national level.
When playoffs NCAA playoffs started gaining national broadcasts (in all sports) the ACC changed their focus.
The ACC actually changed the way games were officiated so that they could be prepared to play when referees from other leagues called their tournament games. The conference was not used to the thugball that Big East officials allowed.

Do you mean women's basketball?

RE: What A Difference the Newbies Make
CV missed the obvious points that had UVA beat Syracuse the ACC would still enjoy the same credits and that UVA would have Syracuse' spot in the "other than UNC/Duke" representing the ACC in the FF.

Should Clemson have really have made the CFB playoffs as they played/beat Syracuse and Syracuse was not a really good football team. And, shouldn't Clemson give back the trophy, the money, the win over Bama because Syracuse simply was not good in football. (CV logic at its best).

CV can belittle Syracuse and other former Big East teams all he wants but then we can expect him to be intellectually honest and apply his logic to the ACC teams (pre-Big East Raids I & II), especially to Clemson. I have no issue with Clemson and am glad they beat Bama. I support every ACC team (expect when it benefits my Orange) as every victory in any sport, and every championship in any sport raises the stature of the ACC that much more.
