There’s a lot of sports news to cover in this week’s ACC Nation Podcast. We begin our first season to season progression as cross country, field hockey and soccer are heading toward the NCAA championships. As one regular season begins to wind down (football), another starts (basketball) with a taste of what’s to come courtesy of the ACC Network. Volleyball is also rounding the corner into the home stretch while ice hockey is generating plenty of excitement.
Nine NCAA Cross Country Regionals get underway this week as does the NCAA Field Hockey opening rounds. NCAA Women’s Soccer championship action begins this week as well.
Will and Jim take a look at the opening day of men’s basketball already a week in the mirror. They share some thoughts on the initial performances and talk about key upsets out of the gate.
How does ACC women’s basketball look this season? Incredible. Louisville leads the conference as a top 10 team while Notre Dame has some catching up to do.
Season To Season
Are there some teams in the ACC that are finally finding themselves? The answer is yes and they are worth keeping an eye on. Will these teams carry this momentum into bowl play? Are they giving us a taste of what’s to come next year? The regular season may be winding down but the number of hot games on the schedule hasn’t diminished.
The torches are being lit as Will brings out his best imitation of a caller to ‘Pawwwwl’ who says the game has passed Nick Saban bye-bye.
