ACC overrated?

Pomeroy says so. And he's probably right. The conference may be merely very very good this year, when for a while it looked to be superb.

NC State, UVA, and Maryland seem a lot less imposing than they did a month ago. Only Miami has seen its stock increase much, with UNC, Wake, and Duke all playing at or slightly above the expected high level, GA Tech in shouting distance when injuries are factored in, and FSU, VA Tech, and Clemson proving that you can't disappoint people if they never expected much in the first place.

Fortunately this is college basketball, where all such arguments settle themselves in March.
