Coots can 't accept we won a BCS bowl.

[9]
Posted: Aug 22, 2014 5:30 PM
 

I mentioned our Orange Bowl win to a coot today and thought the coot was literally going to explode. He immediately went into a rant about how we didn't deserve to go to the OB and that they deserved it more but couldn't because of the two team per conference limit. He said we got the bid out of "charity" and tried to argue that they should have played OSU and not us.

Am I wrong, but didn't we get the bid because of our conference tie in with the Orange Bowl? And didn't we get selected because FSU was selected for the BCS CG and we went as the second best team in the ACC? And wasn't OSU selected as the "at large" team? Didn't it work that way every year under the BCS?

Doesn't the SEC have the same type of arrangement with the Sugar Bowl, the Big12 with the Fiesta and Pac 12/Big 10 with the Rose?

If so, was Bama's selection as the SEC's alternate rep also a "charity" selection and pretty much every other team that was ever selected to a BCS bowl as their conference alternate when their champion was selected to go to the BCS CG was a "charity" selection?

And if I'm correct wouldn't their real beef be with OSU and UCF for being selected as at large bids over them and not with us?

That being said... us being available was a win for the OB


Posted: Aug 22, 2014 5:44 PM
 

we have a history with them, we travel well, and we allow them to honor the ACC commitment...

If say, WF was in our place, OB probably doesn't worry about preserving the ACC tie

with the exception of the years that the Orange Bowl is in the playoff an ACC team will be in the Orange Bowl, but under the BCS system the Orange Bowl had no obligation to give an ACC team a bid if the ACC team had been selected for the BCS Title Game.

Unfortunately a family member of mine..I usually avoid CFB conversations with him because he's the type that goes off the handle at even the mention of anything positive about Clemson. Even a fellow Auburn Alumni family member avoids CFB discussions with him because he always says stuff like " How'd you guys let our conference down by losing to a crappy ACC team".

100%

YES

Try to understand it from this perspective:

I've witnessed twenty-seven "state championships" in my life including seven win streaks....Five of which were four years in row. However, I've only witnessed one other major bowl victory prior to last years victory over OSU. However, I was only 11 years old at that time and didn't fully appreciate what my tigers had done. I was also there when we lost to WV and understand what it felt like to lose that game.

No doubt, the losing streak sucks, but it will end and be forgotten about. That Orange Bowl trophy will sit in our trophy case forever.

I know, having never been to a major bowl it's difficult to understand this. Perhaps SC will win one one day and you'll understand it better. Until then, enjoy the streak while you still can.


Yes, my answer is yes.

Posted: Aug 22, 2014 8:15 PM
 

Last year of BCS, no other chances to win one. We have multiple streaks vs chickens and get a chance to play them every year. Won't ever get another shot at a BCS bowl.

Did that help? I hope that helped.

5 years go a BCS win was more important than beating Scar. It had been 40 years since you last won in consecutive years. We had won like 8 of the last 10, 15 of the last 20, and 30 of the last 40. It was not a rivalry. Your second HOF coach was 1-3. It was bad.

In the present time a win over Scar is of utmost importance deep down to every true Clemson fan, whether they will admit it or not.

I would trade our OB win for a win over Scar last year in a heartbeat.

But what makes your current streak different is that our program is just as strong as yours, arguably better. You have been better the day we played and we have #### the bed, outside of the rivalry we have done more.

The 40 years prior to the start of your current streak you were terrible. We were clearly head and shoulders above you.


Better program than us the last. 5 years?

Re: Better program than us the last. 5 years?

Posted: Aug 22, 2014 9:51 PM
 

In the last 5 years we have 2 division titles, a conference title, and a BCS bowl win.

You have 1 division title.

You have won the head to head battle but outside the rivalry we have done more than you have. That's not debatable.

Recruiting, graduation rates, all that goes into the state of a program as well, and we are ahead of you in both of those areas.

Skeeter,
I understand where you're coming from, but I think you're only saying that because we're currently in the middle of the losing streak. A streak that most of us have never experienced in our lives. But several years from now, when things are back to normal and we're sitting there enjoying another multi win streak over the coots like always, that Orange Bowl trophy is going to be a whole lot more meaningful than it is now. Trust me.

Delusional.


Ohio State had won, whatm 24 games in row until Michigan State ended their sure appearance in the national championship game? That winning streak was one of the top 25 or so in NCAA history.

It was a huge game. Pretty much bigger than any game the coots have won in their entire history.

I'm sure it stung a lot on that night and I'm sure it still stings to a great extent. But trying to minimize it below the hardee's trophy or reducing it because it wasn't a national championship - that's one of the most pathetic things ever typed on this website.

You said something about lying? Please try harder to not lie to yourself, then get back to us. Maybe one day you'll accomplish something more noteworthy than beating Clemson, but I doubt it.


Re: Spoken like a true cocklover...


Posted: Aug 22, 2014 10:11 PM
 

Didn't sting at all. Really don't care. We had just handed you guys a 5th straight beating. We don't care what you do in the bowl game. And once again you finish the season looking up at us on the polls.

Bottom line of the bottom line is that while they are pecking around bragging about beating Clemson , we are positioned to make ACC and NC title runs ...for a long time.
When Spurrts hangs it up soon , they go right back to chump status in a league they are already viewed as such in .

CU got the bid by default. Only 2 teams per conference could get a bid. That's why you got it. Obviously not because you were better than USC. CU could have been 7-5 and got it over USC. Bama and Auburn knocked us out, not Clemson that's for sure. That was settled on the field.

There's no guarantee they would have picked you even if they could have.

[1]
Posted: Aug 22, 2014 9:55 PM
 

Yes only 2 teams per conference. But there were no conference tie ins if the #1 in conference didn't make the MNC.

The orange bowl could have chosen several other teams within the top 16 of the BCS. They DID NOT have to choose Clemson.

Under the new playoff rules, if #1 in ACC does make playoff then the OB DOES have to pick an ACC team to replace.

If we were eligible to be selected there is a very high chance we would have been taken. Better ranking, head to head win, and a fan base that would traveled extremely well for their first BCS game. The only real reason to select Clemson would have been to preserve the relationship with the ACC.

However, we were not eligible. If we had beaten Tenn we still may not have gotten in o clever Bama. Probably had to be SEC champs to get in.

Agree beating OSU was way sweeter, we are bummed about losing 5 straight but we always move on to bigger better games in the end. You keep calling us the little brother or JV team but guess what, you own the state and a recent poll showed we are still more popular and relevant on a national level.
