The 2020-21 Fake Nunes Equation of Tumult (#FNET)

You wanted something more ridiculous than RPI and the NCAA gave you NET. We give you more ridiculousness so we’re bringing back a revised FNET metric.

Head Coach Bench Attire and Mask:

As we said for the first game.... UNC really needs to get Roy some pants that fit. Nice kicks though.

Jim Boeheim has made this pose a common one this year. Guess baggy pants are part of the coaches uniform in the ACC.

NBA 2K Playability:

With five top-50 recruits on their roster UNC is still going to get the ratings edge which is what matters.

Advantage: UNC

1.1/10 If Boeheim didn’t throw his mask when he came out to the foul line at Georgia Tech over the weekend, it’s likely not happening in this one.

Prediction:

UNC’s front-court must be salivating over this match-up but which Tar Heels team shows up- the one that beat Florida State or the one who lost to Marquette? Well Marquette is in the Big East and Syracuse was so that’s all we need. Orange win this one and we’re all trying to calculate how many Q1 wins are possible.
