Why do so many of you care that some idiot criticized our schedule?

We are national champions. We’ve won 2 of the last 3 titles, and beat the absolute crap out of just about everyone last year.

Who cares what anyone thinks about our schedule? Especially some loser columnist who is just trying to generate clicks, retweets, and mentions.

Let it go, and if you can’t, say nothing while you point to the scoreboard.

When you're as successful as our teams have recently been I always expect idiots to show their envy any way possible. We're national champs. That's what they despise. Not our schedule.

I had to give a thumbs up to everyone who posted above! Thanks Judge, and all of you. I, too, don’t know why anyone feels the need to get mad at the moron who said that, or the coots who seem to think it somehow makes them a better team. Let it go - Our team does their talking on the field, where it counts.

Because it’s the off-season and Tiger Nation need something to attack - criticize. They poor writer is as good a target as any. Weird thing is he likely wrote the article in a way to tick off as many fans as possible trying to jump start his career. Tiger fans are simply giving him exactly what he wants


Cause Bama's schedule isn't that much better if at all

Exactly right. We have to play our schedule. As far as being weak, we beat the crap out of 2 of the top 4, so that should shut up the sec idiots.
Also, the sec sucked last year other than Georgia and the fighting Saban’s. The ACC will be improved this year.

Basically, the SEC was highly regarded all season. There was no reason to consider them overrated until bowl season exposed them.
SEC teams won more games last season than any conference in FBS history. They averaged 7 wins. Mathematically, it's pretty simple: each team averaged a 4-4 record in conference, and averaged 3-1 OOC.

Were they visibly much better than any conference in history? Analysts say so, but IMO the answer is Yes. And no. The secret is in the scheduling.

The SEC went 40-2 in games vs. FCS and Group of 5 schools (both losses were by the hapless Razorbacks). They 'only' went 9-4 in OOC games vs Power 5 schools (inc Notre Dame). That's pretty stout, esp. when 2 of the losses were to the eventual national champion. They won more OOC games vs Power 5 schools (4) the first weekend than the entire ACC did ALL SEASON (3)--again, 2 of those wins were by Clemson.

Compare that to the ACC, who went 31-4 with 3 cancelled games (and 2 of the cancelled games were expected to be losses) vs FCS and Group of 5. Those losses were also very visible. Pitt got blown out three times OOC, yet won the Coastal Division. VT is supposed to be a conference leader with a hot coach, but they lost to ODU who played with a backup QB. Including the conference's 5 losses to ND, the ACC collectively went 3-14 against Power 5 schools.

Duke's win over Northwestern is the ONLY conference victory over a Power 5 other than Clemson's.

I am not an SEC apologist, but these numbers are undeniable. The SEC wins. The SEC schedules cupcakes, and then wins. Even against Power 5 schools, they rarely play true road games. But they win. So long as the players 'want to be there', and don't sit out the games. They win.

Except against Clemson. Then they lose.

The story is interesting in the same way that we like to read really bad history essays, such as "Nero tortured his subjects by playing the fiddle for them." We know there are some facts in there, but the writer draws some really distorted conclusions.

especially those mouthy, deluded and ignorant u of 5c fans.

They've enjoyed the benefit of playing $-EZ bottom feeders Vandy, Ole Pi$$, Nissouri, Mississippi State, Arky, Tennessee and FLorida for the last several years and now that they finally have to start playing more than one conference opponent with an actual pulse, they whine, cry, ##### and moan like a bunch of prepubescent little girls.

For the other conference teams to win as many games as possible outside the conference. It is very,very difficult for me to pull for the tar holes but it helps when they win a big game. I can’t believe I said that!!!!!!

And you know what? People will continue to care and reply and no wordsmithed post will ever change that. This is kinda like a death and taxes things. No sense griping when you cant change it. There are numerous parallels here, that I won't mention, but fighting against that cant be changed is and will always a fruitless endeavor.

Take care.

figures in on who gets into and who gets left out of the playoffs. A 12-1 ACC Champ with a perceived "strong" schedule should have no problem getting into the CFP. But, the same record with a perceived "weak" schedule could get that same team left out. That is the only reason it is important to fight that line of drivel early, before it becomes a season long narrative. (Sadly, it may already be too late to stop that from happening, unless the ACC rises up on the field this season and outperforms all expectations.)

We don't usually agree on much, but on this we do +1.

Personally Judge I don't care. We play who ever we are scheduled to play, and we don't have any say in who our conference schedules us play. Dabo will pick a hard Out of conference team to play about every season, and it's usually a TOP SEC team, and it's mostly the sec fans that does the complaining about our schedule. In reality though, when the sec west teams play a sec east team, and playing an east team is really no different than playing our ACC schedule bc, playing against the sec east is like playing our ACC schedule. Those sec fans that complain about our schedule, they make it to easy for our fans to throw the barbs back at them bc they can't beat us, and I enjoy throwing a few barbs back at them!!!
