Nothing arrogant about saying I want the ACC to give us better competition. Our strength of schedule caused us to drop to #3 in the ITA computer rankings even when we were undefeated. That has been a subject of conversation on the UVa boards quite a bit. GT, UNC, FSU and Miami used to be in contention for the final 16 of the NCAAs, but dropped quite a bit off that ranking level this past year, and it hurt the overall strength of the ACC. Obviously, Duke continues to be a very tough opponent, but intelligent people can understand the difference between saying we want more competition in the ACC
vs. we never get any competition in the ACC
. Two very different statements.
