After further review, it’s N.Carolina

Our esteemed “Bored of Trustrees” was jostled out of a sound sleep last week to help revise the Dirty Dozen.

It seemed that most of the Dirty Dozen representatives were not listed on the oddsboard because not much was known about them or their opponents to put out a fair line.

This lack of information in a gaming publication was simply unsatisfactory to our loyal GT customers. So, the Dirty Dozen looks different.

We honor North Carolina as the nation’s worst team thanks to a horrible 1-10 mark against the spread.

The Tar Heels continued their incredible plunge with a 33-point loss at Connecticut. The loss came on the heels of a home defeat to N.C. State.

The worst is yet to come. Duke visits Chapel Hill this week. Don’t for a minute think Coach K will tell his troops to let up. This could get very ugly.

Purdue, out of the Big Ten, is the new No. 2 team at 3-14 ATS. The Boilermakers did upset Iowa last Saturday, but the result they still have the most ATS losses of any team in the country.

Baylor, the weakest link of the Big 12, is third with a 2-10 ATS record. Washington State and Alabama-Birmingham, and Temple round out the first six.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff, a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference, gained the No. 12 spot in the poll by virtue of being the only team in Division I without a win.

The SWAC games carry no line, but an 0-18 record is deserving of mention.

Mississippi State and Providence are the big names in the second half of the Dozen.

Closer to home, San Jose State of the Western Athletic Conference is No. 10.
