    Wanted to start a thread dedicated to the ACC Tournament.

    .. and with one weekend remaining in the regular season, here are my predictions for ACC tournament pools. [So…at least now you’ll know what isn’t going to happen]:

    Pool A:
    #1 Louisville (21-9)
    #8 Clemson (15-15)
    #12 Boston College (12-18)

    Pool B:
    #2 Ga Tech (20-10)
    #7 Duke (15-15)
    #11 ND (13-17)

    Pool C:
    #3 UNC (18-12)
    #6 FSU (17-13)
    #10 Wake (14-16)

    Pool D:
    #4 Miami (18-12)
    #5 NC State (17-13)
    #9 UVA (14-16)

    If that plays out, that means we were one single late game comeback by our opposition away from winning the ACC regular season - pick your game - Miami, Virginia, Louisville, Clemson. So close.

    But... we were also on road at VT with bases loaded & no outs in B9. Had placed ourselves squarely in position to lose game & series there. So.. that cancels one from your list. Feel better? :)

    No, because we were winning 4-0 in the bottom of the 8th in that game. :D

    Seeding still TBD but BC’s win over Notre Dame clinched the last spot.

    Hope Pitt just rolls over and experiments with bench players the next two games.....

    Do we have a 1st round bye regardless of the Pitt series? Jw

    I would imagine we’ve locked in top four at this point. UNC and Miami could still pass us but FSU would need to win the last two vs UL and we would have to lose the last two vs Pitt just to tie. Not sure about the tiebreaker there.

    There are no byes....per se. We will be in a pool with 2 other teams. There are 4 pools of 3 teams. If we win 1 more game or (NCST & FSU) loses one, we should be locked into a top 4 seed.... I'll go on a limb & say we will be a top 4 seed.

    As the high seed in your pool, you wait to play your 1st game after the lower seeds in your pool play each other. All we need to do at that point is beat the team in our pool that wins that 1st game to win pool & advance to semi-final round.

    Anyone know if the game times for the ACC tourney are preset based on the seeds?

    No.
    Seeds 5-12 make up 1st 4 games. That gets you through Tues's games plus Gm1 (11am) on Wed. Earliest Tech would play is 3pm Wed. Tech will play 2 days... Wed-Fri. The schedule usually places UNC & NCST in 7pm slots (sell max tickets). Full schedule will be announced tomorrow (Sun)...at noon, think.

    If NCST holds on to win. Up 7-0 in 6th right now, I think the ACCT pools skake out this way.

    Only pools C&D would change if UNC comes back to win.

    Pool A:
    #1 Louisville (21-9)
    #8 Clemson (15-15)
    #12 Boston College (12-18)

    Pool B:
    #2 Ga Tech (19-11)
    #7 Duke (15-15)
    #11 ND (13-17)

    Pool C:
    #3 NCST (18-12)
    #6 FSU (17-13)
    #10 Wake (14-16)

    Pool D:
    #4 Miami (18-12)
    #5 UNC (17-13)
    #9 UVA (14-16)

    I think your pool matchups are about right, FredJacket. We will know for sure when the ACC guys announce them officially tomorrow.

    I believe Connor Thomas will definitely start for our Jackets in the first game against the winner of the two lower-seeded teams in our pool.

    I like our chances in that one. I just hope our team’s hitters come around after not hitting so well over the past two season-ending games against Pitt.

    I heard on the post game radio broadcast that CDH stated Amos would start game 1

    Maybe he should wait until he knows who the game 1 opponent will be?

    Pretty sure we will play Notre Dame first and then Duke.

    Still, I'd suggest we throw CT against the game one winner.

    Would be nice to find out the result between those 2 before setting the rotation.

    If we play Wednesday, that would give CT only 4 days rest. CDH won’t do that considering CT has been pitching on 6 days rest all year.

    I wouldn’t want to be nc state. The way FSU is playing, and the offensive firepower wake has, that’ll be a tough pool. As for our pool, Duke will be playing for their ncaa tourney lives. I’m glad we don’t have Clemson in our pool, their lineup makes me nervous. Would love to get a couple wins and get into a top 8 seed
