    Boom. Nailed it. Georgia Tech goes 11-9 to finish 5th in the ACC.

    You did nail it! Great job. Too bad they performed so poorly OOC that they didn’t have a chance at NCAAT even with 11-9.

    I though the GT win we had earlier this year was sneaky good. They aren’t a bad team, if they are in from 3 they can actually blow you out with Banks being as disruptive as he is

    Not terrible. Obviously we were all wrong on UNC. Roy Williams has not had his best year. But for the most part you seemed to get the general tiers right. FSU was underrated as they always are.

    Sorry @brooky03 but at least your avatar looks great. What’s the word on Boeheim? Fans can’t be happy.

    What’s ND gonna end up? 8th? Tied for 7th?

    At some point people are gonna stop doubting Hamilton and also stop giving Keats credit for stuff he hasn’t accomplished yet.

    He’s not on the hot seat or anything like that. Fans are more bummed than angry. The saving grace is that this team is at least fun to watch at times because they can score. They can’t defend at all, but at least they put points on the board.

    JB will be at SU until Buddy graduates. Not many fans are looking forward to whatever comes after that. Cuse has the dough to outspend most programs, but that’s no guarantee the next guy will be successful. I’m hoping Wright somehow falls out of favor at Nova (yeah right) and comes to Cuse.

    @dukedevilz I saw this post on the minutes and it got me interested. Not counting the BC game that's going on right now, here's the minutes breakdown:

    Forrest - 939
    Vassell - 843
    Pat Williams -- 636
    MJ Walker -- 634 (missed a few games with injury)
    Anthony Polite -- 599
    Malik Osborne -- 586
    RaiQuan Gray -- 548
    Rayquan Evans -- 316
    Dominik Olejniczak -- 296
    Balsa Koprivica -- 267
    Wyatt Wilkes --244
    Nathaneal Jack -- 65
    Walk-ons -- 75

    I nailed Forrest, but was way way off on Nate Jack, who never could master Ham's defensive principles this year. Those extra 250 got spread out all over, with Polite and Osborne being the biggest beneficiaries.

    Also, laughable how much Torvik and most outlets underestimated Devin Vassell. He only leads FSU in points and rebounds lol.

    Vassell is a stud. Easy pick for 1st Team All-Conference. Part of me thought he deserved more minutes last year in the limited time I saw him. He was very, very efficient. But, I think he was mostly just used as catch and shoot type guy. Can't imagine he'll be back next year, but FSU could very easily be in the top 10 in the preseason polls.

    Eh. They have a terrible bench. Alvarado missed a good chunk of the OOC season. And Jordan Usher wasn't eligible til mid December. I don't think GT would have lost to Arkansas or Ball State with Alvarado. But, as you've mentioned before, good coaches need to develop their bench. So that's on Pastner. Georgia Tech could be a formidable team next year, only losing James Banks.

    Yep. FSU proved most people wrong again. I will say that I did have them preseason #15 in 2019. So that was about right. I just had you guys a little lower this preseason (somewhere in between 32-34). Hard to know exactly how they'd play, seeing how you lost 6 of the top 8 scorers from 2019.

    Btw, out of curiosity, do have a rough idea of how many hours the coaches work in a typical week during the season? Can't imagine those guys sleep much.

    First time in ACC history that neither Duke nor UNC are top 3 ACC tourney seeds. Wow!

    Congrats to all the FSU fans on here for winning the ACC regular season outright this year. Kinda crazy that it's their first with how good they've been recently.

    Congrats FSU. Well deserved.

    Can't believe we haven't won a regular season title since 2010.

    Good point about Alvarado. And yeah they could be a top 40 team next year.

    75+ hours a week.

    Word around the team is:
    Vassell probably 40% chance of staying. NCAAT and how far we go could be deciding factor.

    Patrick Williams probably 20% chance of staying.

    MJ Walker around 90% chance of staying.

    If either Vassell or Williams stays with MJ, we will be a monster next year. Even with both leaving I would expect a top 20 team.
