Golden Age of Clemson Football has arrived for sure.

One oversight: the year GT won a split MNC I still contend no one could’ve beaten them in their bowl game.

Pretty interesting and fun to reminisce on those seasons and remember some of the games and moments.

Couple of things I noticed...where is GT the year they won a split MNC? Hard to imagine they’d have been left out. And between FSU’s 2000 & 2013 appearances the ACC would’ve had 1 team in the playoffs over 12 years (VT in 2007). Honestly not sure that’s inaccurate as the league really struggled with having any top tier, legit NC contenders.


Uhm.. can't help but feel that there is some...

self-serving rewriting of history here. 2005 for example, when every ESPN talking head thought USC was going to blowout Texas, and funny how EVERY eventual champion matches up with the prediction.


There is no way to know what would have happened.

I don't know what method they used to make those selection but it wasn't done by a playoff committee. Without a legitimate committee no one knows what might have happened.
