    5. Florida State
    6. Maryland

    It was not unanimous for us, I'd love to know who the one dissenting voter was.
    Mmmm, BBQ!

    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.

    He chose Duke to win the ACC, I believe. Although he chose MSU to cut down the nets in April...

    Chris Miles, TV reporter out of Virginia. He says it was a mistake.

    I love the start of a season where a guy apologizes for accidentally voting UNC #1 in the conference.

    Wow. That is just -- well, it's way too funny. I can only imagine what Chris Miles was thinking when the results of the poll first came out: "What crazy hack voted for anybody other than Duke?" ... only to find out later that it was him.

    Vote for UNC "an honest mistake", broadcaster says

    ...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.
    There's also this subtle dig from Roy...

    "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."
    Those foreign Dukies invading NC, as always...

    I'm not sure how one makes this mistake. You actually have to write in the name of each team in vertical slots numbered 1 through 12. You've really got to be not paying attention here.

    Or... and this is my evil cynical side coming out... he meant to vote for UNC expecting some others to join him, then when the poll came out and he saw he was the lone wolf, he had to come up with a cover story to save face???

    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?

    Really? I never heard about that. I'm curious; who did the journalist picked instead?

    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.

    1) Yes; and
    2) UNC will have future NBA players at four spots in the starting lineup this year. The list of other ACC teams that can make that claim starts and ends with Duke.
