We got ourselves an off week, and that means we can pay extra attention to what’s going on elsewhere, and so here is your guide to rooting interests:
— Virginia over Louisville, just to hand Louisville a second league loss. Nobody’s winning the Atlantic with fewer losses than two, and this buttresses a random loss by NC State to those dorks. Louisville has a good offense and not much else, and it’s best to set them out of the way as soon as possible, particularly by killing morale.
— Syracuse over Wake Forest, because Wake is the biggest threat in this division, and if we can find some way to make winning in Winston-Salem non-essential, that would help a lot. So it’s got to start this week. I’ll admit this is a huge wish on a non-existent star, but hey. Maybe Wake loses twice and we lose none times between the here and that meeting in Winston-Salem.
— Florida State over UNC because that would be hilarious. My only thing about this is that it would be very funny. Immaterial, but very funny.
— Chaos. Chaos is fun. When it isn’t happening to NC State; and this week, it cannot happen to NC State.
