Miami, yes I agree.  But I don't agree with you about FSU.  FSU is a big, physical team, and they're a nightmare matchup for NC State.  Set #2 against them wasn't nearly as close as the score indicated, and set #3 was pretty much a rout.  Can NC State upset them?  Sure, but there isn't "good reason to believe" it will happen.

As far as the NCAA tourney goes, Fat Tire posted a good recent history.  ACC has never gotten 6 teams in, and it's very unlikely that'll change any time soon.  ACC has only gotten 5 teams in twice, and one of those years (2010) was the weakest tourney pool in recent memory.  With the ACC, it's better to assume 4 and be thankful if/when there's a 5th team.

Right now, it's safe to assume FSU and Miami are in.  UNC has been steadily receiving votes in the polls of late, so despite having a worse conference record than NC State and GaTech, let's probably assume they're in as well.  Plus, as "travel partners" UNC essentially has the same upcoming schedule as NC State, so look for them to rack up a few wins as well.  NC State really needs to keep pace with GaTech and hopefully finish ahead of them in conference.  They have a little tougher non-conference schedule, so if it comes down to an either/or, that could be the deciding factor for that 4th spot.

What's really cool is the fact this conversation/debate is even happening.  Who here thought we'd be discussing NC State volleyball and the NCAA tourney?  Good times!

Actually read on the ACC site last year we had six in previously..go figure the ACC site sucks lol.  I think their is a chance..they do feed off our crowd to be honest. But Miami, Clemson, GT, UNC,2 VT games...and a few other very winnable games...it is very optimistic

Just a comment...

It'a a little confusing the way you show the last meeting with these two.  In one you clearly state that VA Tech won, but in the other you don't give a specific team winner.

Thanks for the info.

Re: Wolfpack Volleyball 2012 (15-3,5-2) 10/12 @ Virginia Tech 


Think we're going to have a tough time with VaTech.  They seem to have our number--one of a dwindling number of ACC schools Coach Bunn has never beaten, including a sweep last year...

Huge road win.  Need to keep VPI, GT, Duke, Clemson and UNC below us.

Miami and FSU have to come to Raleigh in early November.

Take care of UVa in HooVille tomorrow.

Wolfpack having a fantastic season! It's exciting! Meanwhile, it's a miserable season for a usually-solid Duke team.
