Right now, ACC only a lock for four

There is no question that the ACC is a really strong league and, top to bottom, is the toughest league in the country. Clearly, other leagues are comparable at the top and through the middle, but no other league has as many teams that can beat you, and there are few "easy games" in the ACC.

To me, an easy game is one that you can win without playing your best. In the ACC, you have to play well to win, especially on the road. There are precious few "lay-up" games.
