    Oh, they dare. Why wouldn't they? We haven't posed a threat to the "top 3 ACC teams" in years.

    The ACC elite: FSU, Clempsen, Miami, Georgia Tech, VPI. Say it enough times, it will become truth.

    Just a sour reminder of the obvious. 6 out of 14 are 54% and we are smack in the middle of them! PS I hate that this blog doesn't post tables with decent formatting!

    Team Overall Win Overall Loss W/L Ratio
    FSU 14 0 100%
    Clemson 11 2 85%
    Duke 10 4 71%
    Miami 9 4 69%
    VT 8 5 62%
    Syracuse 7 6 54%
    BC 7 6 54%
    Maryland 7 6 54%
    GT 7 6 54%
    UNC 7 6 54%
    Pitt 7 6 54%
    Wake Forest 4 8 33%
    NC State 3 9 25%
    UVA 2 10 17%

    Go JACKETS! THWG!

    The article was about winning the coastal:

    2013: Tied for 2nd
    2012: Tied for 1st
    2011: Tied for 2nd
    2010: Tied for 3rd
    2009: 1st
    2008: Tied for 1st

    Not sure how you can say we haven't posted a threat in years? Seems like we are always 1 game away from playing in our conference championship every year. We just need to actually win that one game.

    Our W-L record vs those top 3 teams belies the claim that we're much of a threat.

    And "tied for 3rd in 2010" isn't that big of an accomplishment when there were 6 teams in the Coastal. "Mired thoroughly in the middle of the pack" still ain't much of a threat!

    Put a big fat "MIAMI CHEATED" next to 2012's "1st place" btw. We didn't beat anyone worth a damn that year either.

    And the fact that our .500 2013 team was actually tied for 2nd place...in a year that we beat absolutely noone of significance outside of 1-year-wonder Duke...shows how weak the ACC is. Same for 2011.

    The ACC is a weak conference and CPJ is proud that we're 4th best. For me, that speaks volumes.

    Haha, oh stop it, dont' kid around like that, it kills me. THREE WAY tie with 2 teams we lost to for 2nd (wait, is that really 2nd? Isn't it more like 4th?) behind Duke, THREE WAY tie 1st in 2012, etc. Come on! When you're in a 6 (or even 7) team Division, a 3-way tie is basically middle of the pack. We went to the 2012 ACC Champ game at 6-6! So, feel free to smack down a point on technicality, but that completely misses the big picture. We haven't been ranked in the past 4 years and are 1-15 against the only teams that crappy fans like me feel proud to beat. Our saving grace is that we play in one of the worst Divisions in College football, big whoop.

    Sorry, you got me riled up.
