Some SEC folks think that we

have a 14-week freebie to practice for the playoffs because the ACC is so bad. Well, the 2016 national title was in a year in which the ACC was called by most the best conference in the land. The rivalry Saturday and the bowl record was amazing. I think the ACC was 9-2 in bowls with FSU beating Michigan in the Orange and of course our win over Alabama.

This year, the ACC did implode. FSU, Miami, Virginia Tech, Louisville, all terrible. But how can you say that it is guaranteed when you look at the South Carolina/Virginia results. I mean an SEC person would say that playing South Carolina is not a given, that it is another touch SEC foe, no easy outs in the SEC. Well, 28-zip to Virginia. That seems like an easy out.

Anyway, if we are the defacto playoff team from the ACC, I'll gladly take it. Then what, we run through Ohio State and Alabama (2016), Oklahoma (2015) and Notre Dame and Alabama (2018) like hot butter.

The truth is, Bama has been in just the same position the last four years. The only SEC team to even come close to beating Bama this year was Georgia. All of their other games have been blowouts, including LSU 29-0, Auburn 52-21. Bama had four weeks rest from the SECCG until December 29. I happen to think Notre Dame was a better semi opponent than Oklahoma, but we will never know. What we do know, however, is that Notre Dame was a better playoff opponent for us than Alabama was. After all, we only beat Notre Dame by 27. We beat Bama by 28, socre more in the first half than we did the whole game vs Notre Dame and we were on Bama 5yard line with a first down with 35 seconds remaining, LOL.

What do you mean "until"?

They have already lost their minds.

This year Clemson and Bama’s strength of schedule were pretty much the same. Delusional SEC fans can’t seem to make a valid point.

...that's all they've got.

The SEC needs to get-better if they want to compete with Clemson.


I don't care what they think AND the ACC stunk this year

And we won the Natty with the 2nd most difficult schedule in the nation (after playoffs).

So, to summarize.

We were the best team in the nation. The ACC stunk. The SEC fanboys are of no worry to any of us.

So why'd they pay Akron 1.4 million?

Didn't want to be there is a bigger problem than getting beat. If Muschamp cant get them ready for a bowl they are DONE.

They weren't counting on giving away so many free tickets to Clemson fans to that Akron game.

Ticket revenues fell far short of projections.


paid 1.4 million for the right to get beat 28-0 by Virginia***

Coping mechanism is correct--that's what is happening. Frankly, I don't see many of the 2018 SEC teams winning against Syracuse.

I'm still working on how practicing against 14 inferior opponents make a team dominate the GOAT. When I get past that I'll work toward defining other issues which have surfaced since the game, not that any of the minor distractions are keeping me from enjoying seeing Clemson beat Alabama on film daily.

If OSU beat bama, the big would be weak..

It isn't an. Acc thing. It is a loser speak thing.

Espn has pushed the propaganda so hard that they believe it.

I found this to be interesting. This was written before we beat the brakes off of Bama! SEC was projected to go 9-2 in their bowl games and ended up 6-6. ACC was projected to go 3-7 and ended up 6-5. Hmmmmmmmm...........LOL!!!!

I said, then play more than 45 players if you are all beat up from the SEC West, those gimmes from MS and 2 from The pillow fight division in The East. You got 85 players, 4 stars and up. We play 65 before the first half.

Then, I got you shuddah had to play OK instead of that fraud ND. Then, there was the insidious 12-0 ND with their schedule shouldn't be number 3. Told him, stop smoking that Texas Butt Cheese outta Paul Finebaum's ass. Besides, you need to be ignoring that drival and deal with the fact that YOUR TEAM fuckingq uit with TWENTY MINUTES LEFT.

I've been wrong two times, but this isn't one of them.


Yes, and Notre Dame should have finished #2. They had one

Alabama - 21

Clemson's would have been higher but, as is generally the case, playing u of 5c hurt Clemson ranking.

Yes, if we could have played Virginia instead of coots, it

Of having no championship game and ability to prepare/rest for over a month to play us at basically a home site for them.

Seems like they want it both ways. Muscoot said we were weak because we played lesser competition in the ACC. Now they say just the opposite?

Can't they make up their minds?

I have SEC fatigue. They actually have an advantage in recruiting just by saying SEC. They get a higher payout per team than ACC teams (40.4 million to 23.8 million from a June 2017 article). But when they get smacked down, the SEC schedule has taken a toll on them or they didn't want to be there. You can't enjoy the benefits the conference affiliation gives you and then use that same conference affiliation as an excuse for poor performance.
