    I’ve been thinking about doing this for over a month and now I’m finally going to start it. I have appreciated MacTisha’s “2003 SEC thread” all season long and as I read it, I started realizing that the ACC fans (except for UNC and Duke fans) were being left out of the information loop too. For example, while I know how UNC is doing, I never know how, say, Clemson is doing, or how FSU or Maryland are doing, unless we are playing them. (David began a thread called the ACC Tonight, but I think he would admit it was a Duke thread.)

    So, in the spirit of better late than never, I’m going to start doing for the ACC what MacTisha (with her helpers UFGator and Kareena) has done so well for the SEC. I’ll start with the past weekend’s results. Fans of other ACC teams are welcome to join in with results or comments whenever they wish. Also, we could use this to discuss the upcoming tournament.

    Weekend results:
    UNC 6-Clemson 1
    Duke 1-Virginia 0
    FSU 0-Wake Forest 0
    NC State 1-Maryland 0

    North Carolina......5-0-0....16-0-0
    Florida State........3-1-1.....9-5-1
    Wake Forest.........0-2-2....9-3-3
    NC State...............1-4-0.....8-6-1
    Maryland ...............1-4-0.....7-6-1

    (Just can't get these dadgum columns to stay lined up!)

    Thanks for starting this thread. WF is the team that intrigues me. Despite their loss last night to Clemson, they can keep games close, and if they get on a roll in their final games against Maryland and NC State, I can see them winning the opener in the Tournament.

    NC State did to Maryland (16 corners and no score) what they did to UNC last year.

    Albyn Jones ratings for ACC teams.

    As weeks go by, the power ratings begin to make more sense. Despite the ACC beating each other up, we have 5 teams in the top 20. Despite its 0-3-2 record, Wake Forest is still ranked 13th.

    1 UNC
    8 Virginia
    13 Wake Forest
    14 Duke
    18 Florida State
    32 Clemson
    33 Maryland
    59 NC State

    Klee, my columns were straight before I submited it too. Maybe someone else knows how the Big Soccer computer formats our entries. Actually, I wouldn't mind knowing how you-all type a link in hyperlink on this program.

    "Coming off a pair of tough 1-0 losses, Maryland came out with heart and fury as they posted a 2-0 victory over regional rival George Mason on a chilly and windy Wednesday night."

    PS. Thanks, MoHeel, for posting that. I've sent you an email about the hyperlinks. Others who are interested, click on the "faq" above, top right.

    I realized I haven't heard a lot about Clemson senior Lindsay Browne this year and she was a standout player for Clemson so I can't imagine her being benched for any reason. Especially her senior year. I checked stats on Clemson page and she has played in 2 game and started those 2. Anyone know if she went down with an injury or what happened that she has only appeared twice?

    Getting the "dadgum columns" of a table to line up is a little tricky, (and it helps to be a computer geek.)
    • Compose the message using an editor with a fixed-pitch font (the message input screen on BigSoccer won't work because it uses a variable pitch font).
    • Force a fixed-pitch font using BigSoccer code "font=courier" and "/font" tags. (the tags begin with "[" and end with "]")
    That will work provided there are no multiple spaces or tabs in the table. Multiple spaces can be handled by putting the table between BigSoccer "code" and "/code" tags.

    Using the ACC standings from last Tuesday which Klee posted earlier...

    Without the "code" tags:
    (using "." as a fill-in character)

    ACC Standings
    North Carolina...5-0-0....16-0-0
    Florida State....3-1-1.....9-5-1
    Wake Forest......0-2-2.....9-3-3
    NC State.........1-4-0.....8-6-1

    With the "code" tags:
    (using multiple spaces)
    [font=courier]ACC Standings
                     Conf.   Overall
    North Carolina   5-0-0   16-0-0
    Virginia         3-1-1   11-2-2
    Florida State    3-1-1    9-5-1
    Duke             3-2-0   10-4-1
    Wake Forest      0-2-2    9-3-3
    Clemson          1-3-0    7-5-2
    NC State         1-4-0    8-6-1
    Maryland         1-4-0    7-6-1[/font]
    It's possible to use tabs but that's trickier and I've found it easiest to make sure there are no tabs in the table.

    Thanks, XYZ. You're a handy guy to have around. Let's see how I do on my next table.

    A lot of people would appreciate your tutorial besides those of us hanging around on this thread. You could make it a separate thread and even make it a sticky for a week or more.

    Oh my. Not a good call by me!

    From the Maryland release:
    "It was seven minutes in heaven for Maryland Saturday night as the Terrapins exploded to an early three-goal lead in the first 7:15 on the way to a crucial 5-1 victory over No. 16 Wake Forest in a key ACC match.... "

    Not many "come from behind wins" this year in the ACC.

    Maryland 5-Wake Forest 1

    Terps Pound No. 16 Wake, 5-1, Pick Up Largest ACC Win Since '98

    Recap and box score

    I thought Maryland had to be better than their record, but I was shocked by this. Any Wake fans on this board? What's going on?

    This afternoon at 2, Virginia will try to pull one on Carolina.

    Standings, etc.

    Standings as of today (10-28):

    North Carolina.....6-0-0.....17-0-0
    Florida State.......4-1-1.....10-5-1
    Clemson ............3-3-0........9-5-2
    Maryland ............2-4-0........9-6-1
    NC State ............1-5-0........8-7-1
    Wake Forest.......0-4-2........9-5-3

    (I know now why these columns are not straight, but it's too much trouble to go back and change them. Maybe the next time I do it, I'll do it right. I thought I was doing it right this time, but alas, I wasn't. Apologies.)

    Player of the Week: Clemson's Courtney Foster.

    "Foster, a freshman from Conyers, Ga., scored both game winning goals in Clemson's two conference victories last week. Versus No. 16/18 Wake Forest, the midfielder scored one of the Tigers' goals in their 3-1 victory. She also scored the Tigers' only goal in their shutout victory over No. 11/9 Duke. On the season, Foster has four game winning goals and has tallied 22 points."

    I haven't heard any talk lately about which is the best conference in the country this year, but it appears to me that the ACC has put to rest any wondering about that. They have, what, 6 or 7 teams in the top 25?

    ACC tournament

    In "playing" the "what-ifs", only UNC has locked up their game-time going into the Sat night games of UVA-Clemson and Wake-NC State. FSU will either be in the 12 or 2:30pm game (Note, I don't remember if the conference flips coins to break ties, or uses results of head-to-head competition). Again, it looks like the 4-5 seeds get the pyrrhic victory of not being the 6th seed.

    ACC Championship

    Based on tonites games;

    Clemson 2 Virginia 1
    Wake 3 NCST 0

    I think everything is over. As of tonite the standings are; record followed by AJ power rating (pardon the columns):

    UNC 7-0-0 1
    FSU 4-2-1 14
    Clem 4-3-0 24
    Duke 4-3-0 20
    Virg 3-3-1 7
    Maryl 2-5-0 28
    WF 1-4-2 16
    NCST 1-6-0 62

    The seedings should be:
    UNC vs NCST
    FSU vs WF
    Duke vs Maryland
    Clemson vs Virginia

    SCCL asks if the ACC is the best conference in the country. I'm sure the WCC officiandos would say no, but when the 7th best team in the country ends up 5th in your conference, thats a strong argument.

    Congradulations to Colorado coach Bill Hempem, former Duke coach (and St. Louis native) who in his second year wins the Big 12. Petrucilli, the former Notre Dame coach finished 2nd, and has yet to win the Big 12 in 5 years.

    Weekend results

    Wake Forest 3-NC State 0 Winston-Salem, N.C. Wake Forest senior Katherine Winstead scored the match's first goal and freshman Elizabeth Remy added a goal and an assist in the second half as the Demon Deacons raced past NC State, 3-0, on Senior Night at Spry Stadium Saturday night. Recap and box

    Clemson 2-UVa 1 Clemson, S.C. Kelly Schneider scored the game-winner midway in the second half in leading Clemson to a 2-1 upset win over fifth-ranked Virginia in a women's Atlantic Coast Conference soccer match at Clemson Saturday night. Recap

    Duke 1-Maryland 0 Durham, N.C. In one of the biggest matches of head coach Robbie Church's three years at Duke, the 10th-ranked Blue Devils came through with a 1-0 victory over 19th-ranked Maryland on Halloween night at Koskinen Stadium in Durham, N.C. Duke's lone goal came in the ninth minute of action as sophomore Carolyn Ford sent a free kick into the box, which was heading for senior Gwendolyn Oxenham. Oxenham went up for the ball and was met by a Maryland defender. The ball settled in front of freshman Darby Kroyer and the San Ramon, Calif., product punched it in the left corner of the net. Recap, box, and photos

    UNC 1-FSU 0 Chapel Hill, N.C. North Carolina junior Mary McDowell scored her third goal of the season and second game-winning goal of the campaign in the 67th minute Friday night as the No. 1 Tar Heel women's soccer team finished the regular season unbeaten and untied with a 1-0 victory over No. 9 Florida State at Fetzer Field.
