We were thinking that as well

Seriously. We just didn't write about it. But after seeing the gang at The Dagger mention it we changed our minds. What in sam hell are we talking about?

How on earth is North Carolina still ranked?

"But that doesn't mean UNC should still be ranked in
both the AP (No. 24) and coaches polls (No. 23) this
week. If a .667 winning percentage, losses in three of
the last five games and a sub-.500 ACC mark were the
stuff of ranked teams, then North Carolina State should
be getting votes too."

This is what we call the Duke Effect. Name brand recognition makes pollsters give team mulligan after mulligan. We would really love to sit down in a room with one of these voters to get their thinking about this.
