Since there’s no games Thursday or Friday, ACC At A Glance will return. Here are the standings.

Whatever happens between now and the end of the season, David Padgett has really made a name for himself. Not many people could have inherited the disaster he did, right down to starting practice by himself, and done this well.

Still, he is the interim coach and he has not guarantees, something his A.D., also working on an interim basis, underscored Thursday, saying this:

“I think you’re probably getting ahead of yourself there,” Vince Tyra said when asked if Padgett could get the job. “We’ve got a lot of season left to think about it. And I think, again, what I’m trying to assess is just how the program is run, where we are, looking at what’s best, looking ahead. Look, I’m very proud of what he’s done, at his age and his maturity level and what he’s done with the team and the assistants, he’s done a great job with the program this year. But I think it’s early for me to really speculate on that. I know there’s been a lot of that around. But we’ll continue to have our conversations and see how we perform, and frankly how he performs the rest of the year.”

One of the challenges of expansion has been to find new rivalries. Seems like Syracuse and Virginia are doing ok on that front.

NC State student Scott Parcell designed a Snapchat filter to taunt Duke and UNC fans.

Thing is, it’s based on two games and some optimism. Someone could just as easily design one that says NO ACC TITLES SINCE 1987.

Maybe put a picture of Ronald Reagan, Max Headroom and baby Jessica on the cover to illustrate the point.

Toss in a baby picture of Kendrick Lamar and it’s a winner!
