Louisville joins ACC
« on: November 28, 2012, 12:26:51 PM »
Cincy and UConn were considered but ultimately Louisville was picked as the replacement for Maryland to keep the ACC at 14.  They are by far the best football team in the Big Least's BCS era and are a very good basketball school.

This is huge for Louisville, they instantly become the best basketball team in the ACC, and maybe football too..the bigger win is that this should keep Charley Strong from leaving town!

Best basketball team in the ACC?  I would consider UNC and Duke better than Louisville (which compares well to Syracuse IMO).

Pretty sure Louisville is currently ranked higher(#2) and has been to 2 final 4's in the last ten years including last year.

How many final fours has UNC and Duke each had in the last ten years?

Loserville is nowhere near best in ACC, in basketball......that conference will always start on tobacco road and go from there.  This does give them 5-6 teams that are going to be top 15 this year.  Nothing against Indiana, but Duke is the real 1 from what I've seen.

  • blkhwkfn: I wouldnt rely on CBS mock drafts. Cleveland should trade down to get more picks
    November 19, 2017, 09:25:19 PM
  • blkhwkfn: then look to either Wyoming or Auburn QBs after a first round WR pick
    November 19, 2017, 09:26:59 PM
  • Flash: BHows - Got it! Thanks!
    November 19, 2017, 09:41:27 PM
  • Daddy: Mock drafts are terrible. Cleveland needs to get QB figured out.
    November 19, 2017, 09:57:15 PM
  • Daddy: I think they will
    November 19, 2017, 09:57:35 PM
  • blkhwkfn: Not with a first, they have so many needs. How many times can a franchise wiff on a QB?
    November 20, 2017, 12:03:24 AM
  • blkhwkfn: Intresting that you like Rosen for Cleveland.......as do many Mock drafts. If I was the GM for the Browns and picking a QB it would be Josh Allen
    November 20, 2017, 12:20:49 AM
  • kidd5jersey: Josh Allen can't read defense, throws too many picks, and plays 2nd rate competition
    November 20, 2017, 12:59:49 AM
  • chrisetc21: And he has two first names
    November 20, 2017, 01:15:28 AM
  • Daddy: Yes I think Rosen is legit. Not sure on Darnold and/or Allen but who really knows.
    November 20, 2017, 02:05:30 AM
  • Daddy: I think you whiff until you get it right. You can't keep passing on guys. The Browns won't be bad forever. No team is.
    November 20, 2017, 02:06:32 AM
  • Daddy: We the public always lump seasons together and draw an overall picture of team's to suit the workings of the mind.
    November 20, 2017, 02:07:49 AM
  • Daddy: The truth is every NFL season is an all new one that can go any way, Cleveland can be a playoff team next year if they draft right and fix a few things.
    November 20, 2017, 02:09:07 AM
  • blkhwkfn: I'd take that bet
    November 20, 2017, 02:34:20 AM
  • blkhwkfn: So what would you grade the competition that Carson Wentz played against at NDSU?
    November 20, 2017, 02:39:44 AM
  • Daddy: Not great but neither was Jerry Rice's comp and a bunch of others.
    November 20, 2017, 03:51:03 AM
  • Daddy: It comes down to the player, and no way I bet on Cleveland but the NFL is the league where it "could" happen in one season.
    November 20, 2017, 03:52:07 AM
  • Daddy: The Browns won't always be terrible. They get a QB and it's a start. I like Rosen but there is no sure bets.
    November 20, 2017, 03:53:31 AM
  • Daddy: You also need a HC, O Line, and a good team built around a young QB. Without those things they are all busts.
    November 20, 2017, 03:54:50 AM
  • Daddy: How is Dak looking these days? How about Luck, RG3, Winston, Tannehill, the list of guys coming up lacking is very long.
    November 20, 2017, 04:02:19 AM
  • Daddy: And all those names had decent success or better early on.
