It seems this is our curse as a program. Every year around the end of Jan to early Feb we start a losing streak that puts us on the outside of the bubble. Then towards the end of Feb we get hot enough to win a few games to end the season and win the first couple of ACC tourney games to squeak into the Big Dance.
It’s crap like this that make me wish I could just turn in my State fandom lifetime membership card and become a fan of another school. This is endless misery.
