Analyzing USuC's record this year...

Since there seems to be a bit of gnashing of beaks from chicken fans regarding the strength of the SEC, Clemson doesn't play anybody, and all the other coot excuses, I decided to look at their record this year. Here are the facts:

USuC has an overall record of 7 Wins - 5 Losses (abbreviated 7W-5L). They have beaten a total of 2 teams with winning records (Missouri, Chattanooga). Missouri is their only win against a Power 5 team this year and Chattanooga is an FCS school (i.e. cupcake game). USuC has beaten one even team - Vanderbilt (6W-6L), and 4 losing teams (Coastal Carolina, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Akron). That is the sum of USuC wins this year - beating cupcakes. The combined record of all the teams USuC beat was 39W-44L which yields a whopping 47% win rate - also known as majority LOSERS.

The average total offense of the teams USuC beat was ranked 71 out of 129 teams. The average total defense of the teams USuC beat was ranked 80 out of 129 teams. Once again - well below the 50% mark.

Now let's take a quick look at USuC's losses: USuC lost 5 games against 5 Power 5 teams with winning records. Their losses were against UGA, Kentucky, Texas A&M, Florida, and Clemson. USuC lost to the very teams that added all the strength to their schedule.

Compare this to Clemson: Clemson beat 10 teams with a winning record; 8 of those teams were Power 5 teams (Texas A&M, GA Tech, Syracuse, NC State, BC, Duke, USuC, Pitt). Clemson only played and beat one even team (Wake Forest) and two losing teams (FSU, Louisville). The combined record of all the teams Clemson beat was 88W-66L for a 57% win rate (i.e. majority winners). Winner or loser - doesn't matter for Clemson - we beat them all.

The truth is USuC shouldn't be flapping their beaks regarding anything when it comes to schedule - their signature win was against Missouri and were it not for the fact that they had enough losing cupcakes on their schedule they would have had an even more dismal year. The fact of the matter is that when USuC had to play a Power 5 winning team their record was 1W-5L which is pathetic.

If not for the rain delay I think Missouri would have beaten them as well.

Agree, but you could also say that dumb onside kick by Mizzou (after they scored the first TD) was what did them in. I put that up there with Kirby's stupid fake punt as the bonehead calls of the year.

Kentucky's program has jumped ahead of SC's program.
SC seems to be slowly trying to let Vanderbilt's program pass them as well.


u5c would be a perennial doormat in the ACC as well***

3....all SEC losses are quality losses.

It's a good thing SC left the ACC.... Who knows how many Conference championships and undefeated seasons they would have had by now.

Obviously you do not live in Cootlumbia. It wouldn't take long for you to empathize with those of us who do.

I appreciate the effort you put into posting all those facts, but you left out the most important fact of all:

SEC loss>>>ACC Win

HTH

You make a good argument that Clemson is better than USuC

This doesn't take into account all of Alabama's wins they claim.
