2013 certainly is only one year and it will take more than that for any definitive conclusion to be reached,


The SEC still has more quality teams than any other conference BUT it should be noted for the recently completed 2013 season and bowls that followed..


ACC teams defeated two top-10 teams in bowl games for the first time ever.

The ACC is the second conference to win both the national championship and another BCS game in the same season.

The league is 3-0 in BCS games over the past two years.

An  ACC team played in the most-watched game of the season (VIZIO BCS National Championship)

An ACC team played in the most-watched non-BCS bowl game in ESPN history (Chick-fil-A Bowl).

The ACC sent a record 11 teams to bowls.

Nationally: Most prolific scoring offense in the history of college football for a single season

Youngest heisman winner

 
ACC teams won more national awards than all other conferences combined in 2013

ACC is the First conference in history to sweep the Heisman, Doak, Walker, Davey O'Brian, Outland, Lombardi, Bednarik, and Nagurski awards in the same year.

11 ACC teams finished with a winning record:  Most of any conference since 1932

ACC led all conferences with 3 non-conference top ten victories (next was 1)


With the above facts it may be time to retire the ACC sucks for at least one year!! :P


Is this when Fans of ACC teams start yelling ACC! ACC! ACC! ? ;D   just curious what the proper protocol is?

It's not that the ACC sucks.....it's just that there is more parity across the board within the conference than there is in most other conferences, especially the SEC.

Impressive stuff. You must have taken some time putting this together.

I wonder why you didn't actually claim ACC superiority over any other AQ conference?

J/K, homey....... We all know why ;)

FYI, the next time ACC fans do an "ACC!" chant won't be the first.

Surely, you're not so out of touch to not know this.

Really?

I see FSU, a HUGE drop off to Clemson, and then another huge drop off to a team that lost to an SEC team that went 4-4 in conference.

Alabama fan be mad after  being Aw burned and being beaten convincingly by Oklahoma...  LOL    FACTS do tend to make such fans "drivel" look silly!  LOL

Oh and let us not forget taking a FSU ( 2nd stringer at QB) to transfer to them....  What is it with Saban and recruiting NFL quality QB's?

Bama has 5 QB's on its roster but needs a FSU reserve to make them better?   :P

accurate statement.   The sec has (2) types that make up about half the conference.  The "never will be's" and the "occasional good teams"   Last season the so-called SEC defense took a real beating.    SEC has more good teams but the myth that they are all good is pure bull sheet.

Who claims that all SEC teams are good? Just another example of you making up false positions of others in order to boost your weak position.

Please explain how the ACC has more parity than the SEC.

Who from the ACC have FSU a game? I'll ask the same question about Clemson.

Meanwhile, in the SEC.....
A team that was winless in conference play in 2012 won the conference title in 2013.
A team that won 2 games in conference (I think?) in 2012, played for the conference title in 2013.
In 2013: (off the top of my head)
Ole Miss beat LSU
Vandy beat South Carolina
UGA beat LSU
Tennessee (who sucks, per Runtroll) beat South Carolina and played UGA to OT
AU lost to LSU and won 5 games by a TD or less
Mizzou lost to South Carolina
A&M gave everyone but LSU all they could handle
Miss State played Bama tough
Florida gave UGA and LSU decent games

So, please explain how there is more parity in the ACC than the SEC

ETA: Seriously not trying to be argumentative, but just curious about what upsets occurred in the ACC that compared to say Tennessee over SC or Ole Miss over LSU.

All my initial post claimed is the ACC is not as bad as some assert.  The only reason for bringing up the lower half of the SEC is they are just as weak as teams from other conferences including the ACC...  Duke gave all A&M could handle..  Even in losses the ACC is not as bad as what some on this board assert.

The ACC doesn't suck... That is the only point.  Are they as strong top to bottom as the SEC?   NO...   

Did FSU not beat the best the SEC had to offer this season?  Did they not beat Bama the last time they played? Did they not beat the crap out of Florida?

FSU is the top team in the country and though the ACC is not yet at the level of the SEC it is not as bad as some assert and over the last 2 years has made significant improvement...


Though overall their bowl record despite the (2) BCS wins in 2013 wasn't great, overall the last 2 years the ACC stands at 11-8 in bowl games.


Hey as long as FSU is on top I really don't care that much about the ACC.. Hey the ACC will soon be the most dominant conference in Basketball when that is proven You won't see me screaming ACC ACC ACC like brain dead SEC sycophants.

if you are having to start posts like this, then the acc still sucks.  but yeah, we all agree, fsu was great in 2013.

disclaimer:  the acc has some good teams.  acc teams have shown they can win OOC games.

Yes, they are. Tell me the AQ conferences of which they are better.

Ole Miss and UGA were in the lower half of the SEC this year. Who from the lower half of the ACC was on either of those teams' levels?

Yes, they do.

FIFY

Quote

Relevance? Alabama lost 6 games that year, including a loss to ULM, and finished second to last in the West.
 
Quote
Did they not beat the crap out of Florida?
Now, we're back to this year.

Cherry pick much?

Since 2004, the SEC is 51-28 vs the ACC, and UF, SC, and UGA are 22-8 vs FSU, Clemson, and Tech, respectively.

FWIW, talking about how great 2013 FSU was does nothing TO help your "bottom half" argument, which you have stated "is the only point".

#3 in the ACC loses to #6 in the SEC, and this is supposed to help your argument? LOL

Is this supposed to upset me?

Yes, I think that picking up the guy that was barely beaten out by the Heisman winner would help any team improve. I'm digging it.

And of course, we all know how crucial it is for Bama to have a great QB to succeed. Oh wait........

ZOMG!! Bobby is supposed to be >Saban, yet it's Saban/Miles' assistant that took FSU back to the promised land!! LOL!! ZOMG!! EMOTICON EMOTICON EMOTICON
