Eagles. Deacons. Two 1-1 ACC teams enter, one 2-1 ACC team emerges. Wait, what?
A look at ACC men's basketball coaching tenure and the conference's perceived "down year." Are coaching tenure and winning college basketball correlated?
An open discussion wondering whether Boston College coach Steve Donahue will ever breakthrough in the ACC, or if the Eagles are destined to be a middle-of-the-pack team for the next few years.
I thought it would be an interesting exercise to take a look at each of the new coaches in the ACC and their performance thus far. It's pretty clear that Steve Donahue is not only getting the most out of his players, but overachieving as well, with great wins over IU, Texas A&M, Cal, Providence and Maryland. Clemson has had a tough road, but have no bad losses (all to teams in the top 75 in KenPom, and all from BCS conferences). Brownell doesn't have much to work with as well, and has already signed his first 4* recruit. Wake, well we all know the story there.
The ACC blogger roundtable comes around again. This week, we preview this year's college basketball season for the Boston College Eagles.
