ACC proves it was overrated (link)

The ACC did not perform well, I concur. But to the thread below, I don't think you can discount the work the league did throughout the season. ...

Further, I'm not sure who the ACC assistants are quoted below. Probably the Syracuse coach who just left for Washington, still pining for their days in the Big East.

"The league isn't very tough," one ACC assistant said. "Too much finesse. You have to be tough to win in the NCAA tourney."

"It was overrated," another ACC coach added. "I'll admit it. We won games in November and December, but most of our teams weren't that much better than teams in the other leagues. But we had a ton of résumé wins on the board because of Duke, North Carolina, Louisville and even Virginia -- and that allows the other teams to become overrated."
