Big Ten / ACC Challenge Discussion

Submitted by Anonymous Coward (not verified) on November 30th, 2015 at 10:47 PM
With the Clemson - Minnesota game wrapping up here real soon, can we discuss the Big Ten / ACC challenge? Rutgers took a close loss earlier, hopefully Minnesota pulls out a W. I haven't seen much basketball with the games being on AXS and not being able to stream with BTN 2 go or Watch ESPN being available. Can anyone tell me if NC State is any good? Are we going to be able to keep up with them? Is it a close match up? Also would like to see opinions of how you guys expect the challenge to play out.

I didn't actually say discuss at the end of my thread. I'm just asking everyone their opinions of the challenge so I can get up to date with college basketball with college football season wrapping up. Thanks for your input though?

Actually, I've paid next to no attention to college basketball other than watching the Michigan games and noting the B1G/Top 25 scores on the crawl space down at the bottom of the TV.

I expected the B1G to be well down Sagarin's ratings, but he's got the B1G at #4 versus the ACC at #2.  Maybe he's still using some initial weightings/carryovers from last year until he gets enough data?

I'm expecting the ACC to win handily based on my limited observation.  B1G NOT GOOD.

Here's how this thing has gone since it started:

ACC

B1G

The ACC hasn't won outright since 2008, which I find amazing given their history as a basketball conference. (I'd expect them to win most years.) This year looks bad for the B1G and it looks like the mid-tier ACC schools are recruiting very well.

The best thing about it it is the only thing that could have been the best thing about it and it was the first half of my favorite part of the year and a lot of people who have been the most beautiful thing in the world is the most beautiful thing in my head and the rest of the day after a long day at the same thing about the future of the day after a long day at the same thing about the future of the year and I don't think that I have a great way of the day I have a great way of the year of high quality of life and the rest of the day I have to go back and I don't think that I can see it as an excuse for the next few weeks of school tomorrow and I'm still not sure what I was a great way of life and the other hand is a good time with the new version is the most important thing is I don't think that the two sides to the gym today and it was the only thing that would make it (written by tapping randomly on the iPhone word suggestion thing)
