STUFF WE HAVE IGNORED DUE TO OTHER NOW SEEMINGLY IRRELEVANT REAL LIFE COMPLICATIONS LIKE WORK, FAMILY AND THE NCAA TOURNAMENT

WOMEN'S BASTKETBALL: The Big Sadie Hawkins Dance - OK, we will acknowledge that the girls are also having an NCAA basketball tournament and the ACC is, as usual, well represented. Also, as usual, the NCAA looks to make this as confusing as possible when it comes to brackets. So, here goes - In the Raleigh bracket Maryland is the No. 1 seed. In the Oklahoma City bracket UNC is No. 3 and Georgia Tech in the No. 9 seed. In Trenton, Florida State is the No. 3 and Virginia is the No. 5. Duke is the No. 1 seed in the Berkley bracket. The first round games will be played on Saturday and Sunday.

MEN'S LACROSSE: Dancing With The Sticks - The Big East may think it's dominant in basketball where at one point they had seven teams in the poll. However, when it comes to domination the ACC lacrosse schools are head and shoulders above as 100% of the ACC lacrosse programs are nationally ranked. OK, there's only four, but they're all good. The Wahoos top the poll and have a big matchup with No. 7 and perennial power Johns Hopkins this weekend. Duke (6-2) is No. 8, Maryland (5-2) is No. 10 and the 11th spot belongs to UNC (7-2).

WOMEN'S LACROSSE: The Big Girls With Sticks Dance - Four ACC women's teams are also nationally ranked: Maryland (2),Duke (5), Virginia (7) and North Carolina (8).

WRESTLING: The Big Slam Dance - The NCAA wrestling tournament is going on and the ACC is fairing quite well. The following guys are still in the tourney: Chris Henrich (Virginia), Nick Nelson (Virginia), Thomas Scotton (UNC), Keegan Mueller (UNC), Justin Dobies (UNC), Chris Diaz (VT), David Marone (VT), Jarrod Garnett (VT), Tommy Spellman (VT), Darrion Caldwell (N.C.S.U.), Joe Caramanica (N.C.S.U.), and Konrad Dudziak (Duke).

BASEBALL: The Everywhere But (Bull) Durham Dance - The Rivals.com Top 25 Baseball Poll is starting to look like an AP or ESPN basketball poll with six ACC teams in the top 25. The Tar Heels hold down the top spot in spite of two losses. The other ACC squads come in at No. 8 Miami, No. 10 Georgia Tech, No. 19 Clemson, No. 23 Virginia and No 25 Florida State.
