  1. Why do I have a feeling that the guy that left Gio off his list is the same one that voted for TOB… and that his name is Trolly McTrollstein (AKA durham).

  2. Great job Coach Cut! Of course, it will be said the guy didn’t really have any quality wins outside of UNC but this Duke team was killed by injuries before the year even started. I’m thinking they’ll be as good if not better next year considering they return a big chunk of thier team and get some guys back who missed this year. Also, I really liked what I saw out of Boone when he played for the injured Renfree. The ACC schedule has gotta be easier next year as well so I think Duke should be a bowl again, maybe even get 7 wins which will still be quite an accomplishment.

    Also, I had to laugh that TOB got a vote!

  3. surprised Golden didn’t get more votes.

    whoever voted for TOB should immediately lose his vote.

    (why would Mark Stoops want the Kentucky job? he couldn’t get it done in an easier conference…)

  4. Who would get the award for whatever the exact opposite of ACC COY would be this year?

    I’d go w/ Spaz, Beamer, or TOB, personally… probably Spaz.

  5. Beamer did the least with the most.

    TOB claimed this was his deepest/most experienced team, but not quite the same talent base as the cHokies.

    Spaz – expected to be bad, and was.

  6. Welcome Louisville to the ACC….

    an upgrade in both football and hoops from the Twerps…

    but a complete joke academically.
