Chansky’s Notebook: The Joy of Losing


Remember those seasons when your team wasn’t good enough to win a championship and the arch rival was favored to do so? My first recollection of that was just out of college when NC State had David Thompson and Tom Burleson on a team that just about could not be beaten.

Since those were the days when only the ACC champion went to the NCAA Tournament, all of our chips were in for whoever was playing State in the Big Dance.

In the same span, the Atlantic Division has had two champions – Florida State (2013-14) and Clemson (2015-2018).

GT's 1917 National Championship Team
