    Duke will play Indiana at Cameron in the Big 10 Challenge. Indiana is projecting as 20-30ish rankings wise.

    That'll be a good test IMO, and if I had to guess I'd say we'll be an underdog heading into the game. At this point I'm not expecting to win. Would certainly be a Q2 win at worst IMO.

    It’s the fact we get Boston College. They might be ok relative to how bad they usually are.

    But nobody is gonna look and say “can’t wait for that game Vs BC” or “damn that BC win was nice”

    They at least limited the ball licking enough to avoid a home game vs 0-18 Pitt

    Oh I agree with that. But we don't deserve a better team tbh. They were an nit team, so a road win would be a quality win. If we have a quality year this year maybe we can draw a Duke, UNC, UL, ND or Cuse type of team.

    How did I miss this ?? Pitt..... just great. At least we got a home game. I feel like 80% of our challenge games have been on the road with 2/3 of them VS VT lol

    ACC is clearly the stronger league. ACC could have 4 or 5 teams that could be favored on a neutral court over anybody the B1G could put out.

    B1G matches up better with the Big East this year, but Sparty pussied out of the Gavitt Games again. Now, they'll have to slum it by playing in it 4 years in a row.

    Yeah, I agree. I would be surprised if the B1G managed to get more than 5 wins in the challenge this year.

    Same here. I still remember the last time we went up there and faced them in the B1G/ACC challenge and they cheered when Justin Anderson went down to an ankle injury.
