Here’s a look at average conference SRS over the past five years (08-12).
SEC (8.84), Big 12 (7.68), Pac 12 (5.39), Big Ten (4.25), ACC (3.82), Big East (2.95)
That doesn’t look great for the ACC. The issue becomes more glaring looking at the average from the past two seasons (11-12).
Big 12 (9.44), SEC (9.34), Pac 12 (5.02), Big Ten (4.08), Big East (2.09), ACC (1.80)
What’s going on? SRS accounts for strength of schedule and margin of victory. ACC teams are not playing ambitious schedules and are not beating the tough teams they do play. The conference is 2-26 the past two years against Top 40 teams in regular season non-conference games. The two wins, Virginia over Penn State (No. 25) in 2012 and FSU over Florida (No. 34) in 2011 were not that impressive. The ACC’s second-best non-conference regular season win in 2012 was Clemson over Auburn. That Auburn.
Even if you wish to be kind and factor in conference records for the Top 40. The ACC went 3-28 in 2012.
"The ACC as a whole has only had less success against the Big Ten (38% winning percentage) and the Pac-12 (43%) than the SEC (45%). But if you talk to any ACC fan down South, all that matters is how you're doing against the Southeastern Conference. This past season was not pretty. The ACC matched up against the SEC 8 times in 2012 - the ACC won twice. Clemson beat both Auburn and LSU last season. The previous season, the ACC was 2-5. In fact, the last time the ACC had a winning record against their Southern rivals was in 2003, when the league went 5-4. And that, among other reasons, is why the ACC is considered the weakest of the Power 5."

How exactly has SCe contributed to the SEC's overall success during its tenure there?
I'll hang up and listen.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
Cocks gonna cock.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
This isn't news.
That's a damn good question. If you're not one of the three big dogs just sit and watch.
It's funny the OP mentions BCS bowls when his team has never even been to one of them. This is look at what my conference is doing but not my team to the max.
my first thought too
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
conference pride is the gayest thing in CFB
it just screams "my favorite team sucks"
Yup. How bad is it when you're best season ever consisted of getting beat by a crappy ACC team in a bowl game?
There is nothing worse in terms of college football talk
apparently bad enough to start conference pride threads
life just isn't fair
LOL , some people cannot Handle Facts! Spin it any way you want. All the Media and sportswriter agree based on facts. Ya mad?? LOL. truth Hurts
ACC,ACC, ACC, ACC, ACC....what's the point of this thread
We know the facts. It's not something revelatory you have stumbled upon.
Nobody gives a shit about the ACC what's the cock trying to prove?
OP mad that his only conference championship is from the ACC.
Dude everybody in this thread agrees with those facts, everybody knows the ACC blows lol
We are just laughing at you for being proud of the SEC, and how South Carolina's best season in the last 50 years is a season where they lost to non-ACC champ who was without its starting QB
And then to add salt to the wound, your best player got sent to the hospital by a non-NFL'er that weighed in at 165 pounds
That is far more pathetic than the ACC's recent history

I'm just waiting for Conference Pride Week at Disney.
I don't believe anybody is spinning anything... The ACC is a horrible football conference that should improve vastly over the next few yrs. Will SCe ever contribute to the SEC's success?
Congrats on being a small fish in a big pond.
The OP feels pride when he sees the Bammers hoist up that crystal ball...all for one, one for all
Can't wait for the first SEC school to claim a natty title that another team in their conference won.
finishing in the top 15 isnt too bad
i know thier happy to be where they are
