ACC Roundup

On the bright side, Georgia Tech didn't lose a home game Thursday night. On the other hand, they didn't win one: their game against Virginia was postponed due to leaks at the ThrillerDome.

Ordinarily, that'd be bad news, but since Atlanta is bone dry and they were expecting 2-3 inches of rain, it's great news. Here's hoping it's heavy upstream too, so that maybe the reservoirs will get some help.

On the down side, there may not be a chance to make the game up, so in addition to an unbalanced schedule, Virginia and Tech may come up one game short of 16. Since both are pretty far down in the standings, it doesn't much matter, but what would happen if Duke and UNC were tied for the lead and one game got rained out? Is there even a rule to cover that?

Things have really gone sour at State, and it's to the point where lots of people, fans and in the media as well, are saying that State has no heart or soul. It's an awful long way from Fire and Ice.

This is a pretty funny story from the old days.

Here are five questions heading into the stretch run for the ACC. Answer #1: Kyle Singler.

We've gotten used to people saying B.C. is going to be down, and then seeing Al Skinner defy those predictions, and we thought he would do it again this year. He hasn't, unfortunately for B.C. But they'll be back. Things will get complicated if Tyrese Rice leaves early, though.

Maryland definitely made life more complicated by losing to Virginia Tech - and check out what Greivis Vasquez has to say. The guy is the least inhibited interview since Chris Carrawell. They're back to worrying about a bid, which they should have wrapped up.
