Re: New Story: Clemson on board for 9th ACC game? Clemson AD says no [1]

I really hope we can get other ADs on our side of keeping it at 8 in-conference games. There are too many small schools in the ACC for it to be a top-to-bottom football conference. Schools in the SEC, B1G, Big XII, and PAC-12 are filled with larger state schools. The ACC schools will not, and cannot, make a commitment to football like those other conferences. By forcing us into 9 games in-conference, you're essentially killing the conference's chance to compete.

Here's a breakdown of the mean enrollments of the schools:

B1G: 39,750 students, smallest school 14,988, 0 schools under 10,000 enrollment

SEC: 30,507 students, smallest school 12,093, 0 schols under 10,000 enrollment

Big XII: 27,900 students, smallest school 9,142, 1 school under 10,000 enrollment

PAC 12: 34,372 students, smallest school 19,945, 0 schools under 10,000 enrollment

And then there's the ACC:

Mean enrollment: 15,799 students, smallest school 4,815, 3 schools under 10,000 enrollment (this includes Notre Dame)

Our conference doesn't have the size money or commitment from all schools to compete on a national level...we can have several good teams, but if we're going to make waves nationally, a part of that will have to come from ####### out of conference matchups. Clemson-FSU, FSU-Miami, etc. can only go so far. We need to continue the ACC/SEC rivalries in South Carolina, Florida and Georgia. We need teams like Virginia Tech to play Ohio State (like they will this year). We need FSU to go play Oklahoma State. We need to push out and try to play teams like Texas A&M or perhaps even someone like Michigan or UCLA.

If we want to, we can choose to look at this like a company. Many big companies have the money, size & resources to produce everything in house. However other companies are smaller and need to hire 3rd parties to produce certain things for them to use. This doesn't make that smaller company less productive or efficient...in fact many times it makes them more efficient. We are that small company. If we're going to run with the big boys, we're going to need to hire 3rd party contractors (in the form of ####### OOC matchups).

That is all.

Maybe we can trade them for UGA, LSU, or Aubie *L****

That would interesting, but do we want the lower ranked ACC

The "8 plus an SEC team" idea makes me laugh
grover173 Feb 11, 2014 7:46 AM
because the SEC has faced some pressure to go to 9 games
ctigers90 Feb 11, 2014 9:09 AM
ok, that's actually a good point
