I think that the reason the ACC is soooo boring to watch is that the league is so pro UNC/Duke. It is no mystery that before the season begins that those two schools are already going to get the most calls, the most favorable non-calls, shoot the most free throws, and will be in the ACC final. The league hides and lets officiating do what it does. Bad calls are banned from being played on the screens at the games (which makes it look like the league is trying to hide things from the fans). The vast majority of the time the tourney is held in UNC/Duke's back yard, and people simply don't buy that it is an honest league. I'm sure that there will be a Carolina or Duke fan that will com on here and blast what I'm saying, but this is a true reality for every school except for UNC/Duke. Not saying they don't have good programs, but when they need a call (or non-call) it happens. This affects every program in the conference in many ways and especially hurts recruiting in the conference. More the tourney around and put the officials in a fishbowl. Give ACC coaches a way to make the officials responsible for their calls. Things will turn around.
