ACC Morning Linkfest 3/3 with Game Sim Predictions

Clemson and FSU both find themselves on the proverbial bubble and both picked up crucial wins on Sunday.  Clemson had the tougher game as Maryland forced two overtimes before the Tigers could come away as 77-73 winners.  KJ McDaniels was brilliant once again, finishing with 26 points, 14 rebounds, 6 blocks, and 3 assists.  Clemson moves to 9-7 in conference play, and 18-10 overall...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/28 with Game Sim Predictions

I wish I could remember who it was on twitter that said it, but unfortunately I can't give proper credit.  Paraphrasing "You know Duke hasn't had one of those 'go crazy from 3 games' yet."  The Blue Devils did just that in their 80-65 win over Pittsburgh.  Andre Dawkins led the way from deep making 6 of 7 3 point attempts while the team made 13-25.  In fact, Duke made a better...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/20 with Game Sim Predictions

Notre Dame's victory on Sunday over Virginia Tech capped off an interesting weekend of basketball around the ACC.  Outside of Clemson (4-1) and UNC's (1-3) records I can't say anyone necessarily surprises me much.  Syracuse earned their right as the 1st place team in the ACC with a close win over Pitt in the Carrier Dome.  Duke may have turned the proverbial corner with their...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/14 with Game Sim Predictions

Yesterday on twitter, Jim Young of lamented about the difficulty of ranking the ACC teams in his weekly Power Rankings.  He suspected that things might be a little easier after Monday night's games.  I'm wondering if things got easier for Jim.  Duke beat Virginia 69-65, but it wasn't a convincing performance.  The Blue Devils played well for just over 30 minutes...

ACC Morning Linkfest 1/10 with Game Sim Predictions

FSU went to Death Valley and pulled out a good conference road win over Clemson 56-41.   In a lot of ways, the matchup confirmed where the two teams stand in the league this year.  While FSU has been somewhat inconsistent this season, winning by 15 on the road over any ACC opponent says a lot about your team.  On the other hand, Clemson had been impressive early on against a...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/29 with Game Sim Predictions

It was a Saturday of missed opportunities for the ACC.  On the gridiron, UNC was impressive in their win over Cincinnati in the Belk Bowl and Louisville took Miami to the proverbial woodshed in the Russell Athletic Bowl.  On the hardcourt, only Syracuse won a game against Top 50 opponent in the rankings.  NC State collapsed late against Missouri and neither Wake...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/23 with Game Sim Predictions

What a poor weekend for Notre Dame basketball.  The Irish saw an 8 point lead disappear against Ohio State on Saturday in the final minute and then lost their leading scorer, Jerian Grant, for the rest of the season due to academic problems.  In less than 2 weeks Notre Dame opens up ACC play against Duke.  I'm not sure what Mike Brey did to deserve this for Christmas. In other...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/20 with Game Sim Predictions

First day of vacation for me so forgive me for this being short.  Over the next couple weeks I'll likely skip a few days or give you quick posts.  Last night, Duke downed UCLA 80-63 in Madison Square Garden.  To my eye, it was easily Duke's best defensive performance of the season especially considering the opponent.  You can see Duke's offensive and defensive efficiencies graphed...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/17 with Game Sim Predictions

Duke and Georgia Tech picked up wins on Monday night and neither game was particularly close.  I traveled over to Cameron Indoor with my wife and two kids and got to take in the game and it gave me a slightly different perspective on this Duke team.  The concern and "want to" to be a good defensive team was seen on their faces between plays.  You could see the intensity and you...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/15 with Game Sim Predictions

The ACC went 6-0 on Saturday with the marquee win being the Heels victory over Kentucky in Chapel Hill.  North Carolina lived off forcing turnovers and scoring in the paint.  Kentucky dominated the boards and free throws were once again a concern for UNC, but the Heels walked away with another victory over a ranked opponent.  Notre Dame picked up a nice win over Indiana in the...

Notre Dame defeated Bryant in the only ACC game on Monday night.  The Irish won 70-59 but Bryant proved to be a scrappy team and the game was much closer throughout.   The big news on Monday though was that Wake Forest has hired their next football coach, Dave Clawson of Bowling Green.  Make sure to follow for all of the updates on the hire.
