True. And the Big East still has (had...when they existed) the 1985 Final Four. 3 teams from one conference in one Final Four, at a time when the ACC was very deep and very strong. That was impressive.

An impressive feat.... until the ACC posts all four this year.

I believe this is the third year the entire Triangle has made the Sweet 16, the other years being 1986 and 1989. I root against unc as much as the next guy does, but that's a pretty cool accomplishment.

I agree - very cool accomplishment. But what would have been better is Carolina losing to Harvard or Arkansas, and then we could point to them and say, "Look at this cool thing that could have happened! We held up our end of the bargain, and you RUINED it!" There's always - always - a reason to hope that Carolina loses every single game.

Barry Jacobs's article on the Home Page says it's the fourth time, with 2005 added to the two you mentioned.

I don't think it would be cool at all, because that would mean UNC would be in the Final Four (sort of the opposite of "cool" to me). :cool:

So wrong.

There are a million reasons to hope for lots of Carolina wins, listed here:

Hmm. Now I'm struggling. Little help?

Thanks for bailing me out. :) I forgot State beat Uconn on that Julius Hodge shot.

In each of the previous three years, and including soon-to-be-vacated performances, the highest Triangle seed remaining (or one of them if tied) made the Final Four, and this year that's us.

It's a shame that State and Louisville have to play each other, they're both playing so well and would have a good chance at both making it to the E8 had they not been matched up against each other. As it stands, we could theoretically have half of the Elite 8 (though I expect and hope for the CHeats to go down).

I think the coolness of an all-ACC final four would trump the disappointment of UNC's involvement. As long as we whooped 'em good.

Caulton Tudor agrees...

With two survivors in the East Region North Carolina State and Louisville the league is assured of at least one regional finalist. Duke (South), UNC (West) and Notre Dame (Midwest) are all still in the chase for tickets to Indianapolis.

You gotta respect what Roy has done with this team, he has them playing good ball at the right time. They made it to the ACC Championship game, and now the Sweet 16. They are now playing with house money as no one expects them to come out of the West. If they do it would be remarkable and I would be happy for the opportunity to defeat them a third time in the National Title game if somehow both teams made it that far. Magical ACC Season for sure, too bad we have to split all that tourney money with all 15 teams. I wonder if Syracuse gets a share?

Too bad Maryland doesn't get a share.

The possibility of of an all-ACC FF is just scary, the thought of playing the cheaters in the final game is just a heart attack waiting to happen. Figured I'd see it in my lifetime, and know it's a life-threatening event.

I will leave the South region out of this discussion, but I have a dream and a nightmare final 4.

The dream is Notre Dame, Wisconsin and NC State. The nightmare is Ky, UNC and Okla. (Actually the East is pretty innocuous and I would not mind any of the 4 but do have a soft spot for NCState since they did all of the digging up of the scandal at UNC.)

I'm sure with our resident population of cardiologists, psychologists, and beer and liquor connoisseurs, we would be able to get through it somehow.

No, you're still screwed. I can't speak for the psychologists, but the cardiologists on the board would be too incapacitated by our craft beers and our own heart attacks to help you. Basically, call 911 and, if you're in North Carolina hope the EMS team are all transplanted Yankees who are bored and waiting for baseball season to really get going.
