Tnet should always be consumed in moderation.  They tend to be a very manic lot.

Amen to that.  Kinda like Clem….

The ACC Tourney Bracket:

This section won’t allow images or gif’s to be posted like the alley or the main forum. Glad to see Clemson get a double bye as 4th seed, but will have to go through UVa to make it to the finals.

Still a good run.

No team is unbeatable this year. UNC finished with a wimper, but they could play with about anybody. This isn’t 2009

Great game. Glad to see them back in it. Earl Grant has done a great job.

Clemson got what I think is a good setup in the ACC Tourney.  Boston College has been strong in the first 2 games, but I am hoping fatigue will kick in and the Tigers come out hot.

The UVa-Louisville game should be fun to watch considering how the Cards blew the last game against them in the last few seconds.

XD a work buddy took them at 8.5 point favorites.  Complaining about his own team winning. 

Now the daunting Cavs….

I don’t know if you got to watch it, but the game ended with a one of our guys having the ball all alone under the basket with a few seconds and Brownell told him not to put it in to add to the score. Your buddy would’ve won.

The Cavs are a tough hurdle.

Clemtgrs must really be struggling with this issue..He has been expecting to sky to fall and Clemson has put together a fine season.  Making it to the Semi’s in the ACC is a great step forward for the program regardless if we win or lose to UVa tonight.  I just hope we play better than the first time we met.

We are going to have a good seeding in the NCAA tourney and hopefully we can go deep in the tournament.

Really not.  I said when it all started Clemson had to have a good showing in the ACC tourney and win a NCAA tourney game.  Those are the next hurdles to improve.  Still not on board with Brownlee, he had a chance to grab me in Chapel Hill but failed like so many.  I still haven’t watched a single game this year, not do I really intend to.

We lost but this team really played well tonight.  I got to see most of the game and they looked good the entire time.  Can’t expect to beat the #1 team so getting as close as we did is very impressive.  If it weren’t for injuries I think this would be a 2 seed and we would have had a damn good shot at winning tonight.  GREAT season for our team.

Yeah Clemson gave them all they could handle…UVA is a beast. They force you to do what they do.

Tonight is gonna be a struggle and probably not gonna be a pretty game.
But just like Carolina is capable of losing to anyone, last night proved they can beat anyone too.

Usually UNC vs. Duke game 3 is garbage. This one wasn’t great for either team, but UNC did assert themselves on offensive rebounds.
