Ponder this my friends. What do you think Clemson's record would be in the SEC, B1G10, or Big12 since 2014? I'm thinking it would pretty close to what it is now and probably better in the PAC12.
IMO, Bama, O31-0, and OU would have similar records to their current records if they played in the other conferences. We won't ever know, the point is there are teams that just dominate their conferences.
All I can say is I believe in the Tigers. O31-0 and Bama have dominated the B1G10 East and SEC West, respectively, and the Tigers have pretty much owned O31-0 and have played about even with Bama. That is proof enough, no matter what anyone thinks of the ACC, Clemson would be good in any conference and all the SEC and B1G10 hype is, well, just hype.
