If we have to go 12-1 cause of SOS

[1]
Jun 28, 2012, 11:27 PM

To get over a 10-2 SEC team or Big 12 wouldn't it be easier to do the 12-1 with the easier schedule than 10-2 vs tougher schedule? If you're all worried cause we have to go 12-1 cause of Sos then what makes you think we can do 10-2 in harder schedule? Just don't get this, we shouldn't have to go 11-1,12-1 to get over 10-2 sec team. Shouldn't we if the schedule is easier

ok, oklahoma should be pretty good this year. wvu will be good but will probably have growing pains in the new conference all other teams should be average.

it's still better than the Pac 12, Big 10, ACC, etc.***

The Big 12 has made a complete 180 compared to last year, IMO. Yes the conference was on the brink of folding with the loss of A&M and Mizzou, with the additional rumors of OU, OSU, Texas, and TT leaving for another conference. I think what saved the Big 12 is that the remaining members met and decided to stick it out and make the best of it. I keep hearing from a lot of people that "why would you want to join the Big 12 when they are not stable?" The truth is that they are the opposite...they are stable at this point in time. "Well how can you say that"? Well, if they were about to fold, why would TCU and WVU join the conference? Yes, I know that they are two teams that would be hard to replace Nebraska and A&M but they are two solid football schools that has played very well over the last few years and has been focused on getting better. The second point is why are espn working huge tv deal if they are going to tank? As far as the commish, why would he leave from Stanford and being in a stable conference to go to a dying conference?

Now I'm not saying that the Big 12 is right up there with the SEC or Big 10 but I would say they are the 4th best conference out there.

I couldn't agree with you more. IMO, I do believe that Clemson and FSU would have made the B12 a much stronger conference. Also Clemson as in FB, I think we are a better program than ND. ND gets to pick who they play and mostly where they want them in their schedule. And they still have 8/4 seasons. I feel sure that is why Texas would rather have ND over us. Clemson could and would be a pain in the Texass. Regardless of what some say or think about Dabo Swinney. He is turning 20 years of sucky FB around for the better.

it's not about which is easier

Jun 29, 2012, 8:36 AM

it's about the ACC lacking respect (and with good reason). the better question is

11-1 in ACC or 10-2 in SEC/Big 12: Which one would people think is more impressive?

Thank you...

Is it easier to go 12-0 in ACC or 11-1 in SEC or Big 12.....def the latter. It is hard to go undefeated in ANY CONFERENCE due to the mental aspect of it....

easier to go 11-1 in ACC or 10-2 in SEC or Big12....about the same, but the latter gives a better chance at jumping other 10-2 or even 11-1 teams...

if it is all about perception and your perception is that


Jun 29, 2012, 8:48 AM

they are "about the same" then why do you think people will find one more impressive than the other?

If people think they are "about the same", then they will weigh them "about the same." If they weigh them, "about the same", then they will think of them as "about the same."
If they think of 11-1 in ACC as "about the same" as 10-2 in SEC, then 11-1 in ACC = 10-2 in SEC. In that case there is just as good a chance of the ACC team being in over the SEC team. 50-50 odds is a dumb reason to make huge changes and risk of instability.

Re: if it is all about perception and your perception is that


Jun 29, 2012, 8:52 AM

I didn't say anyone weighed them the same....I said going 11-1 in ACC or 10-2 in SEC or Big12 is about the same IN DIFFICULTY....

The perception for the longest time has been a bias towards those conference and against the ACC. Why in years when 2 loss teams made the top 4 like 2006, 2005 and 2003 you had teams with less wins and the same losses way ahead of ACC teams in the rankings....

Jun 29, 2012, 8:49 AM

is relative to the re cord of the other 119 teams.

To argue 13-0 vs 12-1 vs 10-2 vs 11-2 is fruitless unless you know what the records for the other teams are and when and against who the losses are.

Exactly what our point is....


Jun 29, 2012, 8:54 AM

And the ACC schedule, especially when the 9 game conf kicks in and other conferences stop scheduling tough OOC games, will not be enough to jump teams playing Bama, LSU, Ark, FLa, UGA etc....or Texas, OK, OKSt. TT, TCU, WV etc....

Dabo is great (for the time being) and 'just win,' will work if we can just, WIN.

However, though I believe the ACC is the place to be until the playoff starts, I don't like the low pay and lighter SOS. I'm not all in with the ACC so don't lump everyone who like Dabo's recruiting of players and coordinators, moral attitude, and coach's training wheels in the same bunch with the 'ACC, ACC, ACC,' crowd.

Why do we play an extra game in the ACC

Jun 29, 2012, 8:50 AM

I'm assuming in the ACC you make it to the title game at 11-1 and you don't in the SEC at 10-2?

I'd sort of prefer 10-2 in the Big12 or SEC because that means there are more big games every year and less matchups with mediocre to bad teams.

Stronger schedules make stronger teams. Better games =


Jul 1, 2012, 4:18 PM

bigger crowds. What's to stop the three top teams in the league from going 11-1 one season, where FSU, Va. Tech and us all swap a loss and all beat Ga. Tech, Pitt, BC and Miami like we ought to? Plus the three games in the other division?

I'd like a stronger schedule not so much for SOS as for the extra excitement and prestige of Saturdays in Death Valley. We'd also get an extra home game a year, or two even if we punked out on a quality OOC for an extra homer. That's serious revenue for Clemson, big time, as it is for Va. Tech and FSU, plus any program that was playing more competitive football. The increase in SOS is really just a by-product of the arrangement.

A stronger schedule would provide significant financial resources in addition to more exciting games overall, with a minimum of 7 home games each year.
