Amazing stat from the story...

"Clemson will finish this season with more ACC wins than non-conference wins, the first time the program has accomplished that since the 1966-67 season."

A tad better play early on and we'd be playing for position, not the bubble.

But it all begins tonight with Boston College! Make the run, Tigers!

If we had beaten Minnesota, UMass, and UGA (all teams that aren't very good) then we'd be projected to be firmly in.

UGA is 14-10 and close to the bubble. They're a whole lot better than you think.

And no, we wouldn't be firmly in. We'd probably be in, but not firmly. The losses definitely hurt, but what's hurt more is a poor strength of schedule because some of these teams haven't performed as well as expected. Our non-conference SOS is well below 300, and that wouldn't change whether we won or lost those games.

KenPom has UGA at 83 and us at 50

And I didn't say we'd be firmly in, I said we'd be projected to be firmly in. Meaning in as long as we didn't collapse down the stretch.

this will be an interesting stretch. We can do this and have played well enough at times.Looks like at this point we have little margin for error though
