"The ACC is, how to put this delicately, not good. In the Sagarin ratings, the conference has dropped to the No. 6 league in the country and the perception has probably never been lower this season than after Florida State did Florida State things by losing to NC State on Saturday to end any hopes of a team getting into the national championship game. The fact that the Tigers have landed at No. 16 in the AP and (!!) No. 13 in the coaches poll is confusing considering they were blown out by the Seminoles and their best win is over a 1-4 Auburn squad.
The offense has been clicking, and there's good reason with Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, Andre Ellington and others leading the way. But the defense has been ... oof. Ranked 96th in the country and giving up nearly 450 yards per game, Brent Venables is spending the school's money and not delivering. They struggled against Georgia Tech (who lost to Middle Tennessee 49-28 at home last week) and likely won't face a ranked team until South Carolina at the end of the year. Bottom line is their loss looks worse in retrospect, the wins aren't great and the entire resume screams a non-Top 25 team. Yet they're as high as No. 13."
The latest college football polls are out following Week 6, and now it's time to rip them to shreds. Notre Dame isn't getting much respect from some pollsters while Washington amazingly is No. 13 on one person's ballot.
I can't understand why more football talking heads don't see the same thing. It's a pitiful conference and the only way to lose a game is to fall asleep on the field.
It shows where FSU was an elite team and goes into a mediocre conference, takes its turn in the conference of sufferring through medocrity in its own right.Carolina on the other hand playing in an elite conference, gradually has gotten better & better.Do you think they wish they would have played in a tougher conference?
Clemson fans have wet dreams about joining the SEC.... they can only dream about playing Georgia, LSU, Florida and Tennessee b2b.... instead of va tech, wake, duke, maryland......
not sure they could stomach going 5-7 and 6-6 for 10 years before they became competitive in the conference.....
Do you really think they can be competitive after 10 years?
Don't forget mighty BC, possibly the worst team in the nation (after losing to Army).
After getting hammered in the SEC for many years, Clemsux would probably do to their football team what they did to their swim teams . . . shut them down for being non-competitive with no hope of doing better.
He rips the reporters, their voting cards, & really questions if they have any sense. NICE
Left to right: Reed and Blondie,
Those are called Night Terrors, I think... wet dreams are fun, playing in the SEC would be a NIGHTMARE for ClemTech. Their complete and utter inadequacy would be exposed for the world to see.
I'll be yo huckleberry...
As far as clemson being ranked number 13...that's ok, because if they are still ranked fairly high at season's end, they will have to play a much better team in a bowl game rather than one they can stomp...and perhaps, just maybe, they can break the record they set last year. Another bowl game allowing 70 points would just be way too funny. I would laugh the entire off season.
Whatcha talk'n bout Willis?
They don't want to play Georgia, LSU, Florida, or Tenn. Heck, they don't even want to play Vandy or Missouri. They got Ga. off of their schedule a long time ago...oh ha ha
And why isn't CBS making the same argument against Oregon? Talk about a team that hasn't played anybody...
