ACC Out of Conference Woes

New, 3 comments
Let's talk about perception. I was hoping that we could really vindicate the ACC this year but with the season opening loss to Alabama and other OOC debacles, things look to be the same as last year. Here's a quick run down of OOC opponents and their current AP rank:

1. Alabama Crimson Tide (#3) - LOSS
2. TCU Horned Frogs (#11) x 2 - LOSS x 2
3. Kansas Jayhawks (#18) - LOSS
4. BYU Cougars (#20) - WIN
5. Nebraska Cornhuskers (#23) - WIN
6. Cal Golden Bears (#24) - LOSS
7. South Carolina Gamecocks (#28) - LOSS
8. USF Bulls (#29) - LOSS
9. Stanford Cardinal (#35) - WIN
10. Pitt Panthers - WIN
11. Baylor Bears - LOSS
12. Rutgers Scarlett Knights - LOSS
13. UConn Huskies - WIN
14. ECU Pirates - WIN
15. Southern Miss Golden Eagles - LOSS
16. Army Black Knights - WIN
17. Marshall Thundering Herd - WIN
18. MTSU Blue Raiders - WIN/LOSS
19. Kent State Golden Flashes - WIN
20. I-AA's - WIN 9, LOSS 2

So currently, the ACC is 19-13 out of conference. Negate the I-AA's and we're 10-11. We're only 4-8 against BCS conference teams. We're 2-5 against ranked opponents. All in all a shit show. A huge debacle. The bad part really is the play of Maryland, Virginia, and Duke. 25% of the conference, 61.5% of the out of conference losses, 99.9% of the reason our conference looks terrible.

Any thoughts on the ACC are welcome.
