I was a bit taken aback when the News and Observer preview said the best case scenario for UNC's season was five wins. With so many questions among the various teams in the league, only one or two squads that look really strong at this point, and last year's cellar-to-champ Wake, you'd think the best case scenario for any team would be at least a bowl game - even Duke's. But it wasn't until the math geek in me plotted it out that I really grasped how little is expected from the Tar Heels:
The N&O thinks only two teams outside of Duke will, at worst have less wins then the best possible scenario for UNC. It's rather sobering.
