Scheduling. North Carolina and Wake Forest announced a nonconference series earlier this week that has drawn support from inside the ACC. Whether this becomes a trend remains to be seen, but surely athletic directors will have discussions about the pros and cons. However, the unconventional move does not mean the league is going to start rethinking how it handles its schedule. The vote last year to remain at eight league games has essentially put the scheduling questions to rest. Whether ACC schools want to schedule each other outside league play is an institutional decision.

Pitino Has High Praise For Jim Christian

"We were watching the BC/Virginia game, and BC had them on the ropes," said Pitino. "(Virginia coach) Tony Bennett told the announcers that Boston College was the toughest prep that he had this year. And after watching six tapes of Boston College I totally agreed. I don’t say this because I recruited Jimmy. I’m not patronizing him in any way. This young man is going to be a tremendous coach. "His offensive scheme is off the charts," he said. "They do things offensively that great teams don’t do. They isolate you well, they know where to go and who to go at. They move the basketball great, they slip off screens. They are a nightmare to guard. Fortunately for us we played great offense as well."

The Heights - "UConn Deserves To Be In ACC'

20

While UConn deserves to be in the ACC, it is tough to imagine a conference change in the immediate plans for the Huskies, so it seems more likely to start with non-conference scheduling. BC can extend an olive branch to UConn by proposing just that, and hopefully, with Calhoun gone, the Huskies can find it in their hearts to forgive the Eagles.

2015 ACC schedule breakdown

The bad: North Carolina and Boston College are saddled with two FCS games apiece, a fact that did not go unnoticed Thursday. There is a simple explanation: previously scheduled games fell through and both schools were left scrambling. North Carolina had initially scheduled Ohio State for 2015. The game was moved, then subsequently canceled when the Big Ten voted to play nine conference games. Two more factors were at play: the ACC reversed course on a nine-game league schedule when it agreed to a partnership with Notre Dame. North Carolina wanted to wait on that schedule rotation to see how it would shake out. While having two FCS teams on the schedule is far from ideal, North Carolina does play two power-five teams with Illinois and South Carolina. As for Boston College, New Mexico State recently backed out of a 2015 game against the Eagles because it overscheduled. That left a hole the Boston College had to fill on very short notice. So Howard was added. Nobody is running around throwing a party over the FCS opponents. Sometimes these dilemmas happen. (Remember when Florida State had to replace West Virginia with Savannah State?)
