In his list of the top 31 ACC teams for 31 days of May, Andrew Jones is up to #16, and he lists...UNC '08? That was a really good team and all, but they got completely destroyed in the Final Four by Kansas. It was a team that didn't play much defense, frankly, and cracked under pressure. So how do you rank them ahead of Duke '91, Maryland '74, or, for that matter, UNC '84? That team, which Jones described as underachieving, did lose early in the tourney to Indiana, but they did have Michael Jordan, Kenny Smith, Sam Perkins and Brad Daugherty. We understand they had a phenomenal record, but still.
When this is all posted, we'll rank it again by our own standards.
