this weekend. They want them to lose ASAP so two SEC teams are in the Top 4. I used to think ND got all the love and benefit of the doubt from the media but that is so not true IMO.


they sounded like they were about to cry

I've said it before, and I WILL SAY it AGAIN. If not for the new college FB playoff system, Clemson would be without the last two Natties bc we wouldn't have ever played for a NC under the BCS system that ESECPN controlled who played for the NC each and every year until the playoff system made it to where an undefeated power 5 ACC team had a right to the playoffs!!!!!!!!!!!!

And they have tried to match us up to a team they hoped would beat us in the playoffs, and knock us out of the NC game, and knowing we were playing like a NC contender!!!

Ohio State may have gotten in over us in 2016

because they were #2 in both human polls at the end of the regular season and that was 2/3 of the BCS formula. I think we would've gotten in over ND in 2018 pretty comfortably though.

IMO this is what the BCS title game would've looked like in each year of the CFP:

2014 - Bama vs FSU (neither team actually made the final)
2015 - Clemson vs Bama
2016 - Bama vs Ohio State
2017 - Clemson vs Oklahoma (neither team made the final)
2018 - Clemson vs Bama
2019 - LSU vs Ohio State

So we maybe get screwed out of the 2016 title, but we also would've had a chance of winning one in 2017 against OU rather than getting Bama in the Sugar Bowl that year. All things considered, the CFP has definitely worked in our favor, but I don't think it would've been dramatically different under the old BCS. More than anything, the BCS was worse because it only included 2 teams. If they used the same old BCS system but included the top 4 it really wouldn't be that much different than the current CFP.

Ideally ND will lose and we’ll have half our team out for COVID for the ACCCG and ESPN can have their wet dream all over themselves.

SEC heads might literally explode if the ACC puts two teams in the CFP....

Even if ND is only a temporary member...

Our best bet to the ACCCG with a healthy team, is for Dabo and Clemson to refuse to play FSU. Don't let them take away the time we're supposed to have to get healthy before the ACCCG!!!!

I agree totally. Why risk it on a meaningless game?

I wouldn’t be surprised if our SOS improved if we didn’t play them.

It's true that they would love two SEC teams in, but we are not the only football fans who can't stand ND. I saw some SEC teams (and other conferences) and their fans pulling for us against ND even though they said they are not Clemson fans.

Why are y'all still watching that nonsense. You know going in what their bias is. Ratings slump will change all that.

Just my take, but I would rather have two SEC teams any day as long as Clemson is "in" and Notre Dame is "out".
ESPN bias aside, I don't want Notre Dame even sniffing the top 10.


However things turn out

The media has to be naysayers and doubt casters. They want the conversation to be there. They don't care about the result.
