    What can Cuse take away from the Florida State beat down of Virginia Tech?

    I am very impressed with the job that Leonard Hamilton has done at Florida State to "Make that program a contender again." His recruiting has been very good, and if Beasley had returned for another year this team would be THAT much better.

    One game of note tomorrow outside of Cuse - Va Tech should be the Duke - Florida State matchup. A win over Duke tomorrow would be a signature win for Hamilton and that program.

    Best team in the ACC right now. I expect them to beat Duke.

    I agree, they should be ranked ahead of Duke. Typical bias

    Talent wise they are up there, I have to see Hamilton win something before I become a believer.

    Not for nothing but Hamilton is worse of a coach than Kevin Stallings. Four NCAA appearances in his 14 years at FSU. How does he keep his job there. Oh yeah, it's a football school. No one cares about basketball at FSU. Seven NCAA appearances in 28 years as a head coach. Ouch!!!

    Wow, amazing what happens when borderline NBA prospects actually return to improve their game...

    I agree, but he's a great recruiter and has them winning this year.

    I'm not sure we will have any one-and-done's this year. Lydon will most likely be gone if the team gets into the NCAA tournament.

    If Battle goes, that could be the most painful of any of them...

    If he can't win with this team he's never going to win.

    I agree that he has underachieved in his tenure at Florida State. However, recently he has gotten great talent and put together a very competitive team. We live in a what can you do for me now world, and right now Leonard Hamilton is a Top 10 coach.
