    So basically Clemson is most definitely winning it all at this point.

    Georgia Tech really needs Georgia Tech back.

    The n.c. mafia can fend for themselves.

    I have a feeling that the Orange Bowl might, just might, be a slaughter.

    To help the conference standings in fb do we need to change the permanent crossover with gt and clemson? I'm making an assumption that gt could be an eventual equal to clemson and we don't need to be beating up on each other 2 x per year, just once in acc championship looks right to me. Am i wrong in my thinking?

    I like keeping Clemson. Sure we’ll be equals next season, but after the 19 lineman in the 2021 recruit class, it should be an automatic win for us.

    Despite Miami’s pathetic showing and their yearly disappointment they’ll probably be ranked in the top 20 preseason rankings again. Sooner or later the voters will be able to say they were right.

    They were really good from 1985-2005. 15 years of mediocrity since. They've been playing in the ACC for 15 years. Coincidence?

    The Coastal is ripe for the taking. Someone will be to our division what Clemson is the Atlantic. Why not us?

    -every team in the coastal

    Back to the Paul Johnson years plus 1 extra win.

    Or back to O’Leary

    Or back to winning home games against UGA.

    I like having Clemson. Good test for us. Exciting game. Brings in money. Definitely don't want a patsy for our cross division

    Not losing 52-7 to UGA, not losing to the Citadel, not getting shut out, not being bowl ineligible, not being more excited about recruiting rankings than actual rankings, and not thanking God for coaches who go 3-9.

    It's odd that this board believes the ACC is awful; but simultaneously believes our getting to bowl eligible next season is setting expectations too high.

    I think Clempson will get smoked by OSU. They are not as good as their ACC competition is poor.

    AMEN. Great how you sum this up. I'm amazed at how no one cares about W/L record right now. ftr, WINNING is the best method to teach kids how to WIN. Accepting losing is teaching kids it's ok to LOSE, as long as you have an excuse. LOSING also breeds LOSING. We weren't as upset with Citadel, VPU, UGA or Temple as we should have been, plain and simple. We (you) even created threads around how LOSING by 10 in one half to UGA was such a great WIN. you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    and in case you forgot...

    Miami = Dumpster Fire ....as i've continually re-posted since summertime, with each and every mention of that Cesspool's name. also..

    Manny Diaz = Purdue D Coordinator, 2022, after a one year hiatus from college fb.

    Glad we've only been "not back" for a year, some teams get stuck there forever.

    Is it just me or does anybody else find it kinda funny how we've always made fun of uga for their preseason and recruiting "national championships", but now that our actual record is horrendous and recruiting is improved, we want to play the recruiting national championship game too? Personally, I don't care much about recruiting rankings or number of players in the NFL, I care about actual wins and actual championships.
