Media "PERCEPTION" of ACC as "WEAK"

I think it starts with comparing all other ACC teams to Clemson's lofty standard. CU has so much more talent & depth, it's really not a fair comparison. The media could do the same with the other conferences, but they don't. So, if all other ACC teams MUST be held to the CU level - of COURSE the rest of the ACC will "appear" weak.

The Power 5s stack up like this:

Big 10 (14 teams)
Teams OVER .500 - 7
Teams @ .500 - 2
Teams BELOW .500 - 5
Teams w/10 (or more wins) - 4
Bowl eligible - 9

Big 12 (10 teams)
Teams OVER .500 - 6
Teams @ .500 - 0
Teams BELOW .500 - 4
Teams w/10 (or more wins) - 2
Bowl eligible - 6

PAC 12 (12 teams)
Teams OVER .500 - 6
Teams @ .500 - 1
Teams BELOW .500 - 5
Teams w/10 (or more wins) - 2
Bowl eligible - 7

SEC (14 teams)
Teams OVER .500 - 8
Teams @ .500 - 2
Teams BELOW .500 - 4
Teams w/10 (or more wins) - 4
Bowl eligible - 9 (Mizzou sanctions)

ACC (14 teams)
Teams OVER .500 - 6
Teams @ .500 - 4
Teams BELOW .500 - 4
Teams w/10 (or more wins) -1
Bowl eligible - 10

Seems the ACC stacks up well vs the other Power 5s. What's not being done is holding ALL conf teams to the same standard as the TOP (1 or 2) teams in their respective conferences. That only seems to occur in the ACC.

Otherwise, except for 10 or 10+ winning teams in each - the ACC is right in there. AND, at the end of the day, the ACC is sending more teams to bowls this year than any other.

Either view all conferences by the same standard or shut up about how "WEAK" the ACC is.

teams with ten or more wins is the clincher!

Yessir. There are 13 Total P5 teams with 10+ wins, and the ACC only has 1 of them....that’s a HUGE factor!


We'll have a better idea after the bowl games are played

but I agree that the ACC isn't as bad as most say they are, and the other conferences, especially the SEC, isn't as good.
