If you thought the Big East Conference was really good, how good to you think the ACC will be this season? This season and in future seasons, the ACC has the potential and to be the best conference in the history of college basketball and Coach Krzyzewski would agree is right there to back up that statement.

Coach K has great reason to believe that it will be the best conference in history, in large part because of himself. First of all, it will be host to three of the most successful coaches in the game right now. Jim Boeheim, Coach K and Roy Williams will all be coaching in the same conference. what more can you ask for other than maybe John Calipari or Rick Pitino who will be joining in 2014.

What already was a good conference with the triangle schools leading the way will only get better this season with the addition of Notre DamePittsburgh and Syracuse with Louisville only a year away from joining.

They took schools from the top tier of the Big East and added them to the ACC to go along with the defending national champions. You add in what already was a good conference with DukeNorth Carolina and North Carolina State as three of the best teams in the nation and you have yourself six fantastic programs.

That comes without mentioning schools like VirginiaFlorida StateMiami (FL)ClemsonVirginia TechBoston College and Wake Forest who have a tremendous amount of young talent of their rosters.

The ACC as a conference has so much talent this season especially with incoming freshman Jabari Parker joining it will be amazing if it isn’t the best conference this season. But it has a bright outlook over the next couple of years and when Louisville joins in a year, it has the potential to be the best conference in the history of the game.

North Carolina, Duke, Syracuse, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame and North Carolina State — what more could you ask for in your conference?
