I'm covering college football, women's basketball and pro baseball for Triangle Offense. I have 30+ years experience writing about such things, including 25 years in…
Thanks for commenting, Sloan! What Duke is doing this season is no accident. Although there are probably no first-team All-America candidates, it's a team with no glaring weaknesses. None. Now the challenge is to sustain.
I'm sure my little car would not last 36 hours in such a parking spot.
So why on earth couldn't a National Soccer Hall of Fame open in the Triangle?????
Sorry for not responding earlier. ... Marissa Kastanek would be a massive loss to any endeavor. They'll need more confident shooting from the outside and better conditioning in the post. I remember in my early days of covering ACC men's basketball when Muggsy Bogues turned from a complete non-shooter into a shooting threat, and Ralph Sampson turned from disastrous to deadly at the line. So I don't think the problems are insurmountable, but the top of the league is getting even better.
Mike Krzyzewski said in the ESPN documentary on Jim Valvano that college basketball was never better than the ACC in the 1980s. I can't disagree with that, and I was 24 when the decade began. The coaches in the '83 tournament were Valvano, Krzyzewski, Dean Smith, Lefty Driesell, Terry Holland, Carl Tacy, Bobby Cremins and Bill Foster. That lineup was just ridiculous.
I like the No. 1 seed idea. But there also has to be a provision that an undefeated independent could get one if its RPI is good enough. Not likely, but mathematically possible.
Obama carried Wake in 2012 by 54,000 votes. I'm just saying ,,, http://www.cnn.com/election/2012/results/s…
