Definitely won't be mad at all if the ACC ends up with 4 or less...

I'm still shocked at the struggles of Davidson. Many thought Dayton would be improved this year (maybe not this much though!), and VCU has been solid for awhile now, but Davidson has basically played themselves out of any NCAA tournament consideration, outside winning the A10 tournament. That team should be much better than how it has been playing this year...

Wisconsin will not make the tournament; Iowa will.

We should have every opportunity to edge Virginia out. Big Ten is miles better than the ACC this year.
