    Yeah, they really suck. They have two guys who would even get playing time on a normal legit UNC team. Possibly three I guess.

    Probably true. Washington won on the road this week against Arizona State and Arizona. 53rd in KenPom. Really impressive for a last-place team.

    Guess I was mostly going for the back-handed compliment angle - because it's fun pointing out that UNC finished the ACC in last place.

    Yeah, I thought you were more making fun of UNC fans, which is fine. We suck and have to take it. I was just trying to play along.

    I wasn't trying to be an asshole. It's a historically bad UNC team. I'm not mocking.

    Oh, I didn't think you were, though that would be fine. I mean, we are all kind of assholes to each other at times. They are historically bad. There is really no debating that, at least not relatively.

    He should probably be POTY tbh. In conference play he led the league in scoring, is 2nd in rebounding, and 2nd in FG%. That is with no one that can make an elementary school level post entry. You can't be POTY when your team sucks this bad though. If he isn't first team it would be embarrassing though.

    Erick Green won it for VT one year and they were pretty bad that year. I don’t think they were dead last though.

    Yeah, I was trying to remember who it was that won it on a really bad team. It was Green. He was a lot flashier than Brooks. Brooks just kind of goes to work and puts up really great numbers. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he should definitely be POTY or is even the best player in the conference. He isn't. He should certainly be first team All ACC though.

    25 points a game is nice, but they were DFL. Should have gone to Shane Larkin or Mason Plumlee, IMO.

    UNC looks like its going to have a mediocre decade, it will take years to turn this ship around and I doubt Roy Williams still has what it takes to make this happen.

    Only 25 more wins to tie up the head to head.

    Nice deflection. Well, when that is all you have, go with it.

    Its very easy to improve from bad(13-18) to mediocre(21-10) by adding McDonalds, but very difficult to improve from mediocre(21-10) to good(26-5).
