A humiliating day for ACC Football
Oklahoma 51 - Miami 13
Nebraska 20 - Wake Forest 17
LSU 48 - Virginia Tech 7
East Carolina 34 - UNC 31
Oh, and the Terps struggled to beat the worst team in Division 1-A.
The ACC should lose its automatic BCS Bowl berth.

I'm kidding of course, but it is amazing how poor the ACC has been since raiding the BEast and how well the BEast has done since then. 3 top 15 teams and an emerging USF program that just went into Jordan-Hare Stadium and took out Auburn. Immediately after the raid all the talk was about how the BEast didn't deserve an automatic BCS birth. It's ironic that it's the ACC that has needed to be bailed out by the automatic bid.

FWIW, Wake Forest was playing with a backup QB and got absolutely no help from bad refereeing against Nebraska. BC looked good.

The ACC will not be a top conference in this sport unless Miami and FSU are any kind of factors.
Teams like Clemson, BC and GT are usually pretty solid schools...Teams that are going to likely win 6-9 games, make a bowl and have the ability to beat the better teams.
MD, NC St and Virginia are usually teams that go up and down...Not a consistent winning team but can sometimes get you 8 or 9 wins...Usually competing for a bowl.
VaTech is a solid top 15-20 program year in and year out and sometimes they are much better than that.
Wake is getting better but have a bad history.
Duke and UNC are terrible usually with UNC occassionally being ok.
So, it goes back to FSU and Miami....If they are the top 5-10 programs they should be, the ACC is very good...If not, then the conference isn't all that good.

Gesch...I think FSU and Miami can be elite again...Miami was elite recently after years of not being elite...They can get back.
Not sure if FSU can be elite as long as Bowden is there....May be time for him to retire and get newer, younger blood in there.

I tend to agree w/you about Bowden. It's probably time for fresh blood. Just as long as they don't go looking for his replacement where they found Bowden.
