CBSSports Bracketologist breaks down Clemson's NCAA chances

Jerry Palm, Bracketologist for CBSSports.com, said on Wednesday in an interview with WRAL radio that Clemson has a lot of work to do to get into the NCAA tournament.

"I don't have an ACC team on the bubble right now," Palm said. "I got five that are currently in and nobody on the bubble. Clemson..that was their third top 100 RPI win [NCSU] of the season. That's like bare minimum to even get talked about. So this is a team that still has work to do. They got a bunch of potential bad losses on the schedule - Georgia Tech, Wake, Miami. They are already have two bad losses and they really don't want anymore. This is another team that almost has to win out just to get in the conversation...win out the regular season. But the good news for them is they get Maryland and Pitt at home. Those are the two best teams left on their regular season schedule. So there is an opportunity there for them, but they are going to have to play really well. They haven't shown that level of consistency yet this year.

He's right...Clemson needs to win out to have a chance.***
TheProdigal
If they win out they are national champions***

Non-conference portion of the season wasn't good enough.
TheProdigal
they also had all the decent opponents on the road
AdamD021
And their best non-conference opponent wasn't scheduled.
TheProdigal
Its absurd to need to go 12-6 in the ACC to have a chance.
truetiger1998
Not when your only really quality wins are
TheProdigal
Clemson is currently 1-5 against teams going to the tourney.***
TheProdigal

He is full of crap.
Judge Keller
Who believes the ACC will get six teams in?
TheProdigal
Cory Alexander said so last night during our game.
Judge Keller
OK...I don't know who that is.
TheProdigal
Re: OK...I don't know who that is.- He is the bozo
74TIGER
I have seen several predictions saying that the ACC gets six
Judge Keller
It's not that it's far-fetched for a 15-team league to get 6
TheProdigal
Used to be being above .500 in league play and 20 wins was
CU''90
Yeah, and that was before the ACC added half the

So here's a question... do we want to

Clemson can't afford to lose a game, so...
TheProdigal
I think it's a fair assesment ...

Times have certainly changed... 5 Teams from the ACC?

It is different now...lot of fluff in the expanded ACC.
TheProdigal
We were 7-9 in two of our three NCAA seasons under Barnes
Judge Keller
To be fair, the ACC was a lot better in those days too
