Not me. I defended the ACC all year. I thought they were as good as just about anybody from team #2 on down. The ACC just didn't have the one dominant team like FSU has been in the past. For the SEC fans that bashed the ACC all year, what happened to your conference? Overrated maybe?

I will say Mr. Sagarin has to come up with a new computer program. How in the world does he come up with the Pac-10 being the #1 conference.

The problem with the ACC this year is that they did not have a big non-conference victory prior to the bowls (and I don't consider MD beating WV a big victory). It was hard to make a case for them w/o having such a victory.

Hey Alabama fans, get used to your team not making any halftime adjustments. Its the Mike Price way.

Didn't I hear that they were bringing in at least 4 juco offensive linemen, though?

das
3 Juco O-Linemen
1 Juco DT
1 Juco TE

I think we are still recruiting at least 1 more Juco OL who would come in with the high school kids.

Well, don't get too used to anything ... he may up and leave you before a bowl game.

That's true but other than a few teams who has big non-conference wins? The ACC didn't do too bad though. NC State beat Texas Tech, FSU beat Florida and should have beat Miami, MD beat WV, North Carolina beat Arizona State, and Wake beat Purdue.

Oklahoma is having a tough time, aren't they?

I guess the "real" Oklahoma team showed up.

It all goes back to the inherent problem with the Pac-10. No one plays defense out there, so a one-dimension offense can work ... but look what happens when you play teams in the other conferences that actually play defense all the time. I mocked all those stupid computers proclaiming the Pac-10's greatness for this very reason, and I stand by it.

I love how Trev Alberts proclaims how "we" are so surprised that the Pac-10's getting owned. *Ahem* ... "we" aren't surprised about anything ... "you" are an idiot.

Those poor WSU kids don't know that OU layed down on that kickoff to get Griffin back in the game to go for the record.

The real reason is that OU has lousy special teams - well maybe not lousy, but not very good.

I have money on UGA tonight, and my hatred for the cheaters and Criminoles at F$U is well documented, but I find at this moment that all I want for Christmas is for the Dawgs to lose to a 4-loss team and their 3rd string QB.

Btw, I heard the F$U players get a raise if they win this game. I'm not sure if that includes more new cars and free shoes, but a salary increase is always a plus.

Good ol' F$U ... bunch of freakin' dumbasses. You stop the favorite on 3rd down in the red zone and then almost blow it with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Stupid thugs.

What the ... did you guys see the disclaimer on that Nokia commercial?

"This product hasn't been approved by the FCC ... it may not be for sale ... something something ... " didn't catch the whole thing.

My guess is building shrines to the Hurricanes to honor their greatness. Could be somewhere else, but I doubt it.
