Around the ACC | Niemo’s Power Poll | 2.1.10

Parity – plain and simple. Chew on this – every team in the ACC lost a game last week except for georgia tech. And, every team won a game last week except for wake (who went 0-1).  Unbelievable.  Going 1-1 in conference play each week keeps you in contention.  Teams that can steal wins on the road are going to be the schools that contend for the regular season title.

Road teams are starting to do better in ACC play, winning 4 of 10 conference games this week.

Here are my updated rankings:

  1. duke (-) (5-2 | 17-4): beat fsu, lost at g’town
  2. maryland (-) (4-2 | 14-6): beat miami, lost at clemson
  3. georgia tech (^) (4-3 | 16-5): beat wake, beat ky state
  4. wake forest (v) (4-3 | 14-5): lost at georgia tech
  5. fsu (^) (4-3 | 16-5): lost at duke, won at bc
  6. clemson (v) (4-4 | 16-6): lost at bc, beat maryland
  7. VIRGINIA TECH (^) (3-3 | 16-4): won at uva, lost at miami
  8. uva (^) (4-2 | 13-6): lost to VT, won at unc
  9. unc (v) (2-4 | 13-8): won at nc state, lost to uva
  10. bc (^) (3-5 | 12-10): beat clemson, lost to fsu
  11. nc state (v) (2-5 | 14-8): lost to unc, beat nccu
  12. miami (-) (2-5 | 16-5): lost at maryland, beat VT

Niemo is a member of the VT Class of '98. While not a professional journalist by any stretch, Niemo analyzes and breaks down every minute of Hokie hoop action. He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.
