Well, MSU lost to KY, which isn't a huge surprise at this point in the season. They did go on and lose to VT, which isn't a bad loss for anyone. No one is unbeatable anymore. But KY and Duke lost to Evansville and Stephen F Austin, respectively, which is shocking. And SFA took Duke into OT and beat them on their home court. So Duke had two chances to win that game and lost both.

Well, I hope Ol' Roy can use this for motivation. The Heels definitely don't look anywhere near as good as last year. Anthony is the real deal, I just don't know who else on the team can contribute.. Will definitely take some coaching.

As a KY fan I'm good. Now lets see if dUKe falls to # 9 like we did. Surely K has a perfectly good excuse and they'll only drop a couple spots. Looks like the team down the road will take over the top spot. Go Cards

Not that it really matters, but that drop was pretty abusive. AP is mostly bs anyway. Kenpom has KY at #7, which is probably about right. UNC is at #9, also probably pretty accurate.

The November national champions fall yet again. Not surprised.

(Heels are gonna end up a 4 if they can hold off Bama but likely not even a top 10 they haven’t even played anyone yet)

Well we took another step back today, our already thin front line lost Nate Sestina to a fractured wrist. Dam the injury bug has been bad this year. Out for 4 weeks, prolly more. Small ball here we come.

Being raised in MD I was raised to hate Duke. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I also strongly dislike my wife's little sister's boyfriend who is the stereotypical southern prep, went to Duke, his dogs name? You guessed it... Duke. Oh man, the timing of this....

College Hoops in a downward spiral and going fast! The one and done's is killing it and making it watered down. The mention of a Rivalry is a joke anymore, school rivalries sure but Team Rivalries...........Nope.

We are an ACC family - one each from GT, UNC, Clemson, and Maryland (back before they jumped), three each from UVA and Wake. When my son was looking at schools, I simply said "anywhere but Duke".

My family is a bit different. My dad and his dad went to Clemson. My oldest son and myself went to State. To my youngest son and daughter I say anywhere but UNC.

Well, Michigan may have set a record for the biggest jump in the polls ever.

Tarheels dropped one place after a return-to-form against Oregon - still probably a slightly better ranking than they deserve. Let's see if they can hold serve against Ohio St.

ps. Bacot can't hedge for sh!t.

Wait, I thought we weren't your rivals. Least that's what all the cheater fans would lead me to believe.

​​​​​​

The basketball beat downs may be even worse than last year. Our basketball program is only slightly less of a dumpster fire than football... Until proven otherwise.

Duke is anything but a southern school...I can't think of a single person who went to Duke that's from here. Plenty from NJ and such though. There are only a handful of NC natives that are Duke fans (my grandmother being one of them, because of JJ Redick).

But I share your Duke hatred. I may hate them more than I do U*NC, because at least I can relate to U*NC fans, for the most part. Ok on second thought...I really just hate Duke students. Entitled brats.

Gotta say though, Terp fans were the absolute worst, but I hated to see them leave. Lots of good games between Maryland and State back in the day (including what many argue to be the greatest basketball game ever played), and of course the Duke-Maryland rivalry was fun.

I'd trade them back for Sorrycuse any day.

Well looks like the Ville is the real deal. Michigan just couldn't get anything going against the defense. The best D I've seen out of the cards to date.

Excellent D.
Both teams couldn't hit the broad side of a barn shooting.
