pundits jabbering about how weak the ACC is this year, the ACC Atlantic is the ONLY division in the country to have six different teams ranked in the CFP poll this year! Sure, some were in a couple weeks ago and fell out, but that is because they were winning and losing against each other!
The ACC is a much better league top to bottom than the Big Ten!
It’s been tough sledding for Clemson over this run when they actually contribute to their own SOS demise. Unfortunately the SEC, “just means more”, SEC losses are good losses propaganda has become dogma. For a while Bama was doing the same to the SEC that Clemson was doing to the ACC but losing to Bama was = a win. Nuts.
Meaning the early season Power 5 matchups and the bowls.
Even with that, it's an uphill battle. Seems like last year's ACC bowl record was something like 7-2. The SEC when 8-1 or maybe 9-1, and all you heard was how dominant they were in their bowl games. Not a peep about ACC success.
