After number crunching, radio debate and some old school video viewing on You Tube, I am now prepare to present to you, my ACC Hoops Mt. Rushmore. The top 4 players in conference history are…….
Last nights UNC-State game was a classic. We saw two great players go at it in a big time duel. Some great effort. Awesome crowd. And, of course some drama from the refs. These are a few of my takeaways from last night’s tilt.
Yeah, we talked about it for 4 hours today, but it is not out of my system yet. These are the reasons UNC came from 11 down to beat Duke on Thursday night.
Both teams come into this game playing good basketball. Duke has won 7 of 8 and the Heels 5 in a row. They are the top two teams in the country since January 21 according to ESPN’s BPI Rankings. I expect the result to be a tight game tonight and another great chapter in the UNC-Duke rivalry. The outcome of the game hinges on these things……

Ok, these are trying times. There is only one real football game left and it isn’t until next Sunday. So, what do we watch this weekend to fill the void?
It was an amazing season for the Carolina Panthers. They rallied all the way from 1-3 to a Division title and a 2 seed in the NFC. But, it is now time for the Panthers’ brass to get down to business and attempt to make the team even better. Here is my to do list for Dave Gettleman and company
I will readily admit if the Saints team that beat the Panthers 2 weeks ago in New Orleans shows up Sunday, the Panthers are in trouble. The good news is that team never jumps on the team plane. That team stays home like Jim Celania on a weekend. The Saints team they send on the road is a different one entirely.
CAUTION. Many of these numbers will frighten you and bring back bad memories from Sunday night’s Panthers- Saints game. But, they will educate you on why Sunday was so lopsided and what the Cats need to do to win the rematch.
Ok, so I couldn’t think of one big issue to write about. But, I have sports thoughts dancing in my head this holiday season. Here is the list……
