Who is number one in our latest power rankings?

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The ACC season is in full force and the staff is back at it with another edition of the BSD ACC Power Rankings. Take a look and then tell us your thoughts.

Riley Chris Cam Bart Rob Ned Adam Grumpy
1 Louisville UNC UNC UVA UNC UNC UNC UNC
2 UNC Virginia UVA Louisville FSU Virginia UVA FSU
3 UVA Louisville Louisville UNC Virginia Louisville Louisville Virginia
4 Florida State FSU FSU Duke Louisville FSU FSU Louisville
5 Duke Syracuse CUSE Florida State Duke Syracuse Syracuse Duke
6 Notre Dame Duke Duke Syracuse Syracuse Duke Duke Notre Dame
7 Syracuse Notre Dame ND Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame Syracuse
8 Wake Forest Wake Forest Wake Wake Forest Miami Wake Forest Wake Forest Miami
9 Virginia Tech Miami VT Virginia Tech Wake Forest Miami Miami Wake Forest
10 Miami Virginia Tech GT Miami Virginia Tech Virginia Tech VT Virginia Tech
11 Georgia Tech Clemson Miami Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Clemson GT Clemson
12 Clemson Georgia Tech Clemson Clemson Clemson Georgia Tech Clemson Georgia Tech
13 N.C. State Pittsburgh NC State Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh NC State Pitt
14 Pittsburgh NC State Pitt NC State NC State NC State BC NC State
15 Boston College Boston College BC Boston College Boston College Boston College Pitt Boston College

Some observations:

  • Riley is the lone writer to have Louisville in his top spot. Louisville did lose at Virginia on Monday night, but they were without a host of scholarship players due to injury/suspensions.
  • The rest have Carolina number one following Carolina’s win over Notre Dame.
  • Rob and Grumpy are the only two with FSU in their top three. Are the people forgetting that the Noles beat UVA in Charlottesville?!?
  • Everyone but Adam has Boston College in last place. There is a very strong consensus that BC, Pittsburgh, NC State, Georgia Tech, and Clemson are the bottom 5 teams in the league.
  • Syracuse is a riser in the rankings after a big win over Virginia this past weekend.
  • Wake Forest is right around 8th in everyone’s rankings. The only split seems to be between Wake Forest and Miami. Wake Forest defeated Miami relatively easily, but Miami has since defeated UNC and earned a road victory over NC State.

What do you all think of our rankings? Who do you all think is most deserving of being in the number one spot?
