Super Early Conference Check

Order has been restored, as NC State has the largest positive point differential in the ACC through the middle of January.


Hmm? Sorry, I blacked out for a second. It's way too early in league play to take anything from the scoring margins posted to date, since said margins could be skewed by, oh, let's say...a 36-point win at Wake Forest. But at the same time, look at how much better than Carolina we are!!!!111

(With thanks to StatSheet.)

Half the league is scoring less than a point per trip, which I really hope doesn't hold up. Small sample size rules the numbers at this point, of course, so it's hard to speculate on that one. But I insist it not hold up. I can't deal with that holding up.
