Is the ACC considering going to 9 conference games?

I think it's time to do so and get rid of the crappy 1-AA game we play each year. A few years ago it sounded like ESPN was going to require this move for the ACCN, but guess they dropped the idea.

I don’t know.

It was not well-received the first time they suggested it...

1-aa scores suck. Fans should demand more for their dollar.

Clemson is adamant about playing at least seven home games

each season. With a nine game conference schedule, every other year, Clemson would only have six home games.

I hope so and would be a win for college football and our fans who are forced to pay for a crappy game. It should be no less than nine conference games and ten games against P5 teams


Why should it be that way?***

The FBS-FCS games should be banned. They are a waste

of time. If no one could schedule those games, it would stop the excuse of finding no one to play in place of them.

At death valley. My preference is that 330 time slot.

But let's talk about you

Cons
FCS games are non competitive. Well most games against clemson are not competitive now adays.

DC tiger does not enjoy them . Fair enough. Footbal is entertainment. If you donate to iptay I can understand why you want to be more entertained.

Pros that I can think of.
They give clemson a 7th home game. I'm a big fan of this one.

They provide an athletic budget for most of those chools . Not a football budget... the entire sports budget. So that boring game is helping a lot of students go to school who otherwise couldn't.

They provide jobs for the coaches and administrators at those schools.

Playing 8 conference games gives clemson the opportunity to play scar every year.

Give players time to rest.

Give coaches the opportunity to try different players, plays.


I watch every game regardless of who they play. Just not

a fan of the FCS game. While GeeVille Tiger thinks this it's a good idea, I really don't care about helping out the other schools in SC. We already do that for the rest of the ACC.

Just to be clear, I do not ever want to see Clemson tied down with a 9 game conference schedule.

It's already bad enough that we get the random Notre Dame inserted into our schedule whenever the ACC feels like it.

Going to 9 conference games basically ensures that we only get 6 home games every other season.

I also hate to tell you, but adding a conference game is going to get rid of the Charlotte or Texas A&M game and not the Wofford game.

Clemson is going to continue scheduling in-state FCS programs to help them out.


Could get rid of the scar game as well

The sec went through this as well . Uga, Florida, South Carolina, and Kentucky all said if the 9 conf game went into effect, they would consider dropping their rivalry game


Yeah, folks seem to be thinking it'd mean better games

But lets be honest we're going to protect our 7 home games for financial reasons. That means probably less home/away series against major non conference opponents. Likely we'd just be substituting that new home/away rotation against the ninth ACC opponent.

Is that really an upgrade?

The only people complaining about this are the Big 10, Big 12, and Pac 12. The Big 12 does it well...because they don't have 12 teams.

The others do it because they are too cheap to pay for a OOC game. Also, look at who they schedule OOC. I don't see the Big 10 playing a lot of ACC, SEC, Big12 games during the regular season. They are playing NE and Mid West patsies as well.

F'm. Stick with what we have.

How many Power5 opponents did the B10's top SIX teams schedule as their OOC slate?

Iowa VS Iowa St
Ped State vs Pitt
Mich vs Notre Shame (Really not a P5 but giving them some doubts)
31-0hio: 0
Wisc: 0
Minn: 0

THAT IS IT. 3 Games vs Power5 opponents between SIX teams. Some even scheduled powerhouses like UCONN or MyHammie of Ohio in addition to their slate of Rutgers/Maryland.

Just saying that Clemson does as many P5 opponents in one year as some do in several years.

The ACC does nothing to help or encourage FB to become stronger in the ACC, so why add another dead beat team to our FB schedule. I so wish that before I leave this world, that the ACC conference would go bankrupt and turn belly up. Spit all the teams up and make a power 4, do that or get rid of Swofford and everybody above and below him. Put in people that believes that FB in the ACC can be their biggest money maker, and drive FB as hard or harder than any of the other college sports. And make it so that schools are paid a share by what they put into it, and not a dime more!!! It's pathetic that all ACC schools get an equal share of every dime that Clemson brings into FB by winning at the highest level of FB!!!
