The ACC's Circle Of Parity Is Complete

Monday February 25th, 2013

When Wake Forest knocked off No. 2 Miami on Saturday, the Demon Deacons didn't just hand the Hurricanes their first conference loss of the season -- they also managed to complete the ACC's circle of parity. That means each team in the league defeated another that defeated another (and so on) until every team in the 12-team conference had lost and the circle was complete.

What does it mean? No one can say really. (It happened as early as Week 11 in the NFL this year.) But it does suggest a sense of balance and always makes for an interesting visual.
