    I thought UNC was overrated as the season started.

    Note the team going into the season #1 rarely ever wins the NCAA tournament. Or has a season as strong as the prior one.

    UNC lost to Wake Forest. Granted Wake is a good team this year but as I said in the early goings they are going to lose more games than people anticipate.

    NOTE: The preseason rankings.

    All the teams ranked #1 going into the season did not win the NCAA tournament except Florida (the year they repeated).

    Like I said, I didnt expect them to go undefeated during the season. I expect them to lose one more game this year and that's it. Wake Forest have a very strong team. Teague is a stud, and he showed it by scoring 34 points. They also McFarland is a center as well.

    If Handbrough didn't have that poor shooting performance they would of defenitely won the game.

    With that being said, I still dont think this team is overrated, and I believe there going to win it all this season.

    I dont hate UNC but a buddy of mine at work is so obsessed with UNC that when they lose I laugh because I know how much it upsets him.

    Is that cruel?

    LOL I dont know anyone who gets that upset about a team I am indifferent to.

    However if its a team I hate (like Ohio State) then I will always rub it in their faces.

    Well the season is still young MJ but UNC was the top ranked team going into the season I think they will have a good year but they will probably fall out of the top ten by season end and get a 2 or 3 cede in the tournament.

    If a team that I hate like the Ottawa Senators loses, especially to my team the Montreal Canadiens, I'll rub it in all the Sens fans I know. I do it all the time, but same thing goes if my team loses to them, my friends rub in my face.

    It's only halfway through the season. They can still get hot and win the ACC Tournament and a #1 seed. I still think they're the team to beat. Nobody comes close to matching their talent and depth.
