Overrated

Out of the office yesterday, dealing with taxes. My accountant made my day, my week, my month......

The N&O's Caulton Tudor puts the smackdown on ACC hoops:

"The conference will wrap up its regular season this weekend, but it long ago became obvious that the ACC is a lot weaker than anyone could have imagined....."

OK, so what went wrong? Tudor asks.

"The truth is that the ACC was overrated from the start. The lofty expectations stemmed from Duke and Georgia Tech reaching the Final Four last year, plus Maryland, N.C. State, Florida State, Virginia North Carolina and Wake Forest getting most of their starters back."

Bottom line: Who's in, who's out?

"On reputation alone, the ACC will probably will receive five bids, maybe six.. But once you get past the big three, it's all subjective. If the other eight just keep sloshing along, it's hard to argue that any of them really belongs in the national tournament."

I'm not sure what Tudor means by "sloshing along," considering the fact that it's time for some teams to come in out of the cold or risk freezing to death.
