    For some reason I think UNC can make the final here. They aren't as bad as their record and they have a pretty favorable draw. And nobody in the ACC is unbeatable.

    I can only hope that your predictions will be correct because if they are I know my Wolfpack will be going dancing. Right now I think we've got to win two more games and I just can't see us beating Duke in the second game if we get that far.

    @Hitman Hart

    Ain’t no way Wake’s keeping Manning now, right?

    common sense would say no. Manning has lost 18+ games in five of six seasons.

    however, the buyout is still tricky. it's becoming quite apparent that Manning has no interest in resigning. He wants to stay. I'm worried that Wake isn't going to come up with the money and Manning will be back for a seventh season.

    I've never seen a coaching situation like this before. A coach that has been a complete failure and still wants to stay, but the school can't afford to buy him out. If Manning does return for a seventh year, that should be Ron Wellman's legacy at Wake Forest.

    I don't

    UNC would have to win FIVE games in FIVE days, and Cold Anthony would have to be dominant and I just don't see that happening, better yet, I see Roy having his first Losing season assured, but that's just me

    I agree with you and this is why I said I thought UNC would make a mini run in the ACC Tournament. Winning 5 games in 5 days is just unrealistic because after about 3 days the legs are gone.

    Tired legs = poor defense, missed shots, and particularly missed free throws. I hope the Heels don't prove us wrong.

    They haven't won five games in a row since their first five games this season have they? That was Gardner Webb, Elon, and UNC-Wilmington, etc

    Was NC State one of their first 5 games this season, LOL?

    We can't beat them no matter what kind of team they have.

    Pitt has zero chance of beating NC State in Greensboro

    those yankeefaced Panthers may as well quit now before they have to tip off against the 10x ACC champions
