Considering 3 more basketball powers are coming into the league the next two years as well. I'm not sure how anyone can make this statement. Any league with Duke, UNC, NC State, Syracuse, Louisville and Pittsburgh is going to be a solid league.
I think you're wrong again as usual...when Miami is winning and Duke and Carolina are still 2 and 3 and State and UVA aren't far out of the picture, I think it means the conference is on an upswing. Syracuse and Pittsburgh are supposedly coming in. I really don't know what you are thinking...did you lose a marble or two?
Yes it posed a question but I was asking you to state why you were even asking the question in the first place. Duke is fine, they just don't have Kelly but have been playing well without him. North Carolina is in a rut but I wouldn't say the ACC is in trouble because of that.
The ACC can do strange things....when they brought in FL St, Miami, VT, etc....it was supposed to make the ACC competitive with the level of the SEC in football....really all it did was bring those schools football programs to an ACC level, apparently basketball too since Carolina & Duke have carried the conference like FL And KY in the SEC ( but the SEC wasn't expected to be a basketball conference and didn't bring schools in to "boost" their bball and yet they didn't even need to (KY just won the NCG) anf FL has stepped up to multiple elite 8s and are even better this year, :(but now the Heels aren't even good (and I like the heels, half my family went to school there including my dad) but even he agrees that the ACC is weaker all around in BOTH sports now, unfortunately. And probably threw up a bit in his mouth actually admitting that....:( Nobody has named the marquee wins or wins against strong teams by huge margins of victory that would put Duke in the top 5....
