How shocking! We are the choice of the media to win the ACC.
Here's their prediction for end of year finish.
4. N.C. Sate
5. Florida State
9. Georgia Tech
10. Boston College
12. Wake Forest
It was not unanimous for us, I'd love to know who the one dissenting voter was.
Singler unanimous 1st team choice, Nolan on team as well. Singler POY - http://bluedevilnation.net/2010/10/d...c-singler-poy/
Nolan Smith audio from ACC Op BB - http://bluedevilnation.net/2010/10/a...coming-season/
Coach K from ACC Operation BB. Maybe a mod should change the title to ACC Op BB for many posts to come - http://bluedevilnation.net/2010/10/a...o-part-1-of-5/
I asked K about twitter and he had a lot to say and basically trusts his players. That will come shortly.
61 of a possible 62 first-place votes. Who didn't vote for Duke?
Vote for UNC "an honest mistake", broadcaster says
There's also this subtle dig from Roy......the media member who cast the only vote for UNC was Chris Miles, a broadcaster from WDBJ in Roanoke. He attended Fairfield University. He said Wednesday that he meant to vote Duke No. 1 and Carolina No. 2, and didn’t realize his error until after the poll was released.
“It was an honest mistake,” Miles said.
Those foreign Dukies invading NC, as always..."They had to be a North Carolina graduate that hates Duke – that’s all I can tell you,’’ Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said, joking at the poll results. “I’m always pulling for the American against the guy from a foreign country, regardless of who it is – that had to be that situation, there."
We should have a pickem contest on here just for fun. Tack it and look back at the end of the year to see who won!
2. VA Tech
3. Florida St.
11. GA Tech
Is the rest of the ACC really so bad that unc-ch is third? I am going to be a skeptic until I see something other than NIT runner-up.
If I remember correctly, a journalist was chided into re-casting his vote for ACC POY to make Hansbrough the unanimous selection....
Does Ole Roy support justice?
It was a little different - one of the beat writers chose not to include Hansbrough on the All-ACC first team in 2007, and the ACC decided to consider Hansbrough a unanimous selection anyway.
