Field Hockey draws #5 seed for ACC Tournament -- Sunday Cardinal Couple


Although the actual ACC Field Hockey Tournament is a couple of weeks away, the pairings have been made for the event in Durham, NC from Nov. 5-7. Once again, I am baffled by the way they do these things. Louisville is a #5 seed. they'll face Wake Forest, a #4 seed.

Louisville finished with a 3-3 record in ACC conference play. So did the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest. The two schools played in the regular season. Louisville defeated WF Winston-Salem.

So, tie-breaker goes to the Cards, right? Not in the wacky world of ACC Tournament seedings. Wake gets the #4... Louisville the #5. 

"Jim...the ACC Field Hockey Touramant is illogical!" 
Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard...please report to the commissioner's office. Bring Dr. Ted, Dr. Phil, Dr. Seuss, Dr. Feelgood and Dr. Spock also. It's time for a ACC Intervention. 

Other rankings are non-nonsensical as well. UNC finished conference play 4-2 and is #1 in the nation. makes sense they would be #2 seed, right? Virginia gets the #1 seed. Virginia also gets the first round bye...since seven teams are in ACC Field Hockey.

Boston College gets the #3 seed They beat Louisville and were 3-3 in conference. Duke is the #7 seed. They were 2-4 in ACC play. Syracuse is the #6 seed. They went 2-4 in conference also and got the #6 seed because their school name starts with an "S". 

Could Bassy play Field Hockey?
Clemson, Fla. St., Miami? Get some sticks and get up a squad. Notre Dame, VA. Tech? Time to construct a couple of nets and get into the swing of things...
