Usually around this time any other year were talking about the miamis, the florida states, the virginia techs trying to get to a BCS

But Wake Forrest? Georgia Tech?

yeah..its been a down year for the conference...Miami and FSU has atleast 4 loses in conference play :nono:

Wake, BC and Maryland have gain respect in our conference..hopefully the canes can bounce back next year with a new coach..we need a change badly then ever

I think in the history of the BCS the ACC has only won 2 BCS bowls.....ever! And one was a 4 loss FSU team last year

How many BCS wins does Miami have? Since we're including Miami in the ACC talk, and talking about ACC wins, let's include Miami and their 3 (?) maybe more BCS wins.

You can't do that!:shakeno: :shakeno:

Especially since they BEAT an ACC team once in a BCS bowl.

The ACC has sent their conf champ to a BCS bowl from 1998 till now... and in that time span that ACC champ has only 1 BCS bowl win. . You can't go changing numbers to make it look better for ya. :shakeno:

What you can't do is talk about the ACC since 1998 til now, because I don't know if you've been living under a rock but the ACC has changed! The ACC can be talked about between 1998-2003, and 2004-present, because the ACC meant two different things between those two times.
How does it look better for me? I go to UM, and we have our BCS wins, it doesn't matter what conference we were in. But don't go around including Miami into this "ACC mediocrity since 98" bullcrap, when this is only our 3rd season in the ACC.
It's just so funny to see people kick miami while they're down...it's going to be so sweet when we come back next year, with kirby, baby j, and a new coach.

well, I thought I answered that already...but that still doesn't mean you weren't avoiding either...

all I'm saying is that you can't talk about the current state of the ACC by how it was when it was completely different in '98...I mean what are we really arguing about...the ACC or the teams in the ACC? To argue about the ACC is kinda pointless, because it's just a label...we're talking about the teams in the ACC - and the teams in the ACC right now have more than one BCS win since '98.

It's a label that gets you in the BCS over C-USA, MAC, WAC, etc. And you're right about the ACC being different back in '98. The conference was deeper as far as teams. You know FSU and UM will be back...It's just a down year for the ACC. I am sure the original topic was all about that. To put Big East wins in the ACC is sandbaggery.

Right, right...the label is important, but we're not talking about the fall of the label, we're talking about the fall of the teams that have the label. The ACC was not deeper back then, are you serious? There are 6 ranked teams in the ACC right now, and that does NOT include two of the more talented teams in Miami and FSU. This conference is very deep right now, and with Butch joining UNC, and FSU and Miami coming back up next year, we may be rivaling the SEC as far as intraconference competitiveness.
If you want to label "ACC wins" you have to divide it into two different time periods...so in the past two seasons, the ACC has 0 BCS wins...I can accept that argument.
