Wow, the Wolfpack is up to 12th (may be too high) and GW comes in at 21 (deserved).

Can Charlotte be moved to the “not deserving of votes” poll? Bama moved up 4 places to #18 after beating us, good for them!

Here’s something one of our copy editors sent out. After winning ACC-Big 10 Challenge 7-2, the weekend represented a sort of ACC-SEC challenge.

ACC 6
SEC 0

Friday
Virginia 89, Auburn 87

Saturday
North Carolina 91, Kentucky 78
Florida State 69, Mississippi 64
Miami 72, Florida 65
Clemson 63, South Carolina 62 (OT)

Sunday
Georgia Tech 87, Georgia 49

Waaay too high... they haven't played anybody. Their enitre ooc schedule is weak.

So far they have beat:
New Orleans
Elon
East Carolina
Campbell
Purdue
Manhattan

I don’t think they have even played a true road game yet.

6-0…wow. :rolleyes:

I’m surprised we are still getting any votes.

I bet we wipe the floor with nc state they are not THAT good. Imo we have a much better all round team. I saw them play perdue they looked pathetic, if they played like that against rutgers they would have lost by 10 or 15.

Yeah, I saw that game. They didn’t exactly win easily… It was close within the last 4 minutes. BTW, Purdue is 1-4 with their only win coming over Detroit.

The fact that we are 0-2 vs anything better than decent this year makes me a little wary of such a prediction.

I do believe ncsu hits FTs at a much higher rate than 60% so I have to give the nod to them with us head-to-head. (It really hurts to say that.) :ticked:

Not so much better, .661 (76-115). The telling stat there is that the Wolfpack has not gotten to the line as much (33 attempts less) as the 49ers have, playing sub-caliber opposition.

Come on moderators do your job!!! We can’t allow any school to be mentioned other than Charlotte.

we have 2 loses but alabama is a legit top 15 or top 10 team. There is no excuse for rutgers we sucked, but somebody had to lose the bama game too bad it was us.

I HATE FLORIDA. my gosh they will lose 10 games this year more than likely and will still be in the top 25 or just outside it.

Does everyone realize that last year we beat 3 top 10 teams last year and that earned us a 8 seed and this year it is very likely we will not even play a top 10 team???
