2/20/2024
NCAA women's basketball is on fire and you need look no further than the ACC for an example of that smoke, heat and flame. Megan Gauer of Her Hoop Stats joins ACC Nation to talk bracketology and how teams are stacking up in mid-February. Big wins and crazy losses are creating a higher level of churn than usual but it's certainly been fun for hoop fans. Gauer provides you the complete rundown of women's basketball and how they stand in her latest bracket. ACC Nation Radio 24/7 Who are the top seeds and why? What team or teams may be moving from the top line of the bracket? The ACC places 9 seeds at this point ranging from No. 2 to 9 in Gauer's bracket. Are any of this teams likely to move up? Who's underrated? Will any of them move up in seeding? Bracketology Top 16 Committee Ranking - ACC The NCAA Top 16 includes NC State at No. 6, Virginia Tech at No. 10 and Louisville at No. 16. An update reflecting the latest wins and losses will be released mid-week with some turnover expected among the top seeds. Gauer reflects on how that will impact her bracketology efforts in the coming weeks. Subscribe To ACC Nation Podcast Clocks are ticking everywhere and growing louder with every sweep of the second hand. The regular season and an opportunity to lock down a spot in the NCAA Tournament is generating a sense of urgency from coast to coast. Take a quick look at the NCAA NET Rankings and keep this in mind. There will be 32 automatic bids extended to conference champions. The at-large ranks gather in 36 teams. Gauer tells us how deep into the numbers she goes when working up a bracket. That number is most likely the same that the selection committee is working with in reaching the total of 68. Time is slipping away to register those critical wins. Bracketology - Tournament Time The ACC women's basketball tournament is slated for March 6 through 10 in Greensboro. Selection Sunday is on March 17 with the First Four playing March 20-21. The Final Four and NCAA Women's Basketball Championship will be played in Cleveland with the title game on Sunday, April 7.

What The Hell ACC? | Bumbling Misery Of ’24 Basketball

1/23/2024
Pick your favorite adjective in describing the current state of ACC men's basketball and unless you're a Carolina or Duke fan it won't be ideally used in mixed company. Seriously, what in the hell is this nonsense that resembles the horrors of a six-year old who, awakened by a nightmare in the middle of the night, needs new sheets? Overboard? We think not. At this rate the conference will be lucky to have three teams in the NCAA Tournament. When was the last time that occurred? Listen To ACC Nation Radio For The Latest From All Sports Discussion Is it a lack of talent? Maybe a number of coaches need to experience geographic readjustment? Here we are looking at February, which we all know comes and goes in a heart beat during the season, and which teams (other than the aforementioned) stand out? And don't be a homer with your answer because it's disingenuous. ACC ACC women's basketball doesn't get a pass here either as January has turned into a mess as well. Congrats to Syracuse for moving up in the latest AP Top 25. BTW, you folks who are tossing in a vote for your favorite teams in the poll....just stop it. If you're playing that game then perhaps you shouldn't be voting at all. We also take a look at the opening weeks of ACC football and share some early thoughts on what we see.

ACC Sports ’24 | Wild, Surprising, Fun

1/11/2024
Welcome to ACC sports 2024 and so far the end of 2023 and beginning of 2024 have been wild, surprising and fun. What's next? Well, after we recorded this episode the list was added to again and then again and once more. Nick Saban's gone. Bill Belichick's gone. In case anyone had missed it, so is Pete Carroll. And, oh, by the way the top candidates for Saban's job are peeling away left and right plus some Tide fans don't want Dabo Swinney. I'm sure the feeling is mutual among Clemson fans. The vacancy at Alabama will have a ripple effect upon the SEC and college football. Lord help the oversized ego that tries to walk in and do the same that Saban has done over the years. The immediate thought from our corner, hoist a glass and celebrate the monster diminishing in power. We won't diminish any aspect of the coaching supremacy these guys have demonstrated over the years. Respect. But, anything that elevates ACC sports, well we're all for it. Will and Jim look at the final AP Top 25 football poll and share some thoughts on the numbers. For good measure we talk about the addition of Cal, SMU and Stanford and how they will impact the ACC football season. We're looking forward to talking with the folks that cover these teams and providing you football previews in a few short months. ACC Sports Want to paint an interesting picture? In Week 0 of college football Florida State and Georgia Tech will face off in Dublin, Ireland for the AerLingus College Football Classic on Saturday, August 24. Yes, it will be a fun game and an entertaining pub crawl for fans who fly in to see the game. The wildest part may not have anything to do with what we see on the field. You see, ESPN's College GameDay will broadcast for the first time outside of the U.S. at this game. Hear our thoughts on how they may be received by Noles' fans. Jim throws in his two cents on how his Irish relatives should welcome the cast. Always here to help. In other areas of ACC sports. You know all the talk about how the NIL will be a bad thing and then no one stepped up to do anything about it? Well, the NCAA has decided that all of those feral long-tailed cats in a room full of rocking chairs will now be corralled and brought 'in-house'. If you can get past the laughter the guys share some thoughts on that cluster, too. Last, but not least a quick run-down of the AP Top 25 men's and women's basketball teams will occupy your time as well. Want to see the latest men's 2024 projected bracket?

Going into the 2023 college football season there were more than a few questions regarding ACC teams. It turns out it was a sneaky good season in many ways for more than a few teams.
