UNC will open ACC play against Florida State later this afternoon in the Dean Dome. This is the first time that the Tar Heels will open conference play against the Seminoles since the 2006-07 season, and right now they lead the series 53-16. If we are to follow in the steps of oddsmakers, there’s a very high chance that the Heels will improve their win count to 54, but last night’s college basketball games proved that odds can’t really be trusted, can they?
Normally this is the part where we talk a little bit about the game, but there’s something important that needs to be discussed. Former Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim will be joining Wes Durham and Corey Alexander to call this afternoon’s game, which is something I never thought I would be typing as a writer for this website. Boeheim joining the media circuit to call a basketball game is quite a hilarious development considering how he treated reporters during his coaching career. If you do not want to find out how good or bad of an analyst Boeheim is, I would recommend either attending the game or muting your TV and listening to the radio. You’ve been warned.
