FSU down by 10 at halftime. Not looking good for the ACC. Notre Dame losing to WVU was bad enough. Coming into today, the game I was worried most about was the UVA game. Now they may be our only win of the day.

Quite an underwhelming performance thus far. The league is 0-3 as an equal or lower seed. The ACC is 6-2 as the higher seed, with the best win being either UNCW or Princeton. The league is 0-5 vs teams from the power 6 conferences (losses to K State, Wisconsin, Mich St, WVU, & Xavier)

I'm glad I saw the trend and bet against UVA.

Open Thread- NCAA Tournament
The ACC has gone beyond underwhelming now. Miami losing by 20. FSU losing by 25 to Xavier! Virginia losing by 26 to Florida! Already 6 of 9 not making it past the first weekend with 3 games still to go.

What's up with ACC teams getting run out of the building like that? UVA couldn't score 40 point? This was an epic collapse for almost an entire side of the bracket... no teams alive in the West, and one each in the other 3 regions.

1 thing that sticks out to me is shooting. For the most part these teams have struggled while their opponents have been above their average. Louisville struggled shooting the ball in their first game as well & was prime for an upset as Jacksonville also shot above their average but was able to perceiver against a lesser opponent. Another is PARITY. Even the 10, 11 & 12 seeds are now good.

Virginia only scored 39 points in a modern game.

It's gonna be up to the flagships to carry the day - North Carolina and Duke.

I missed 7 so far, including first 4, with Miami being my only loss beyond the second round. I'm perfect in the South & my only miss in the West was VCU. I had Rhode Island winning as well.

Elite 8 picks?

I have Duke beating Villanova, Arizona beating ND, Louisville beating Iowa State & UCLA beating North Carolina.

Well my bracket is now completely shot.
