Those are true and valid numbers, but if you run a comparison of teams now in the ACC with teams now in the SEC you get the following stats:

Bowl games since 2000 (BCS bowl games)

ACC: 37-25 .596 (BCS 4-7)
SEC: 31-24 .563 (BCS 5-4)

Statistics can be analyzed a thousand different ways, in this manner the current ACC teams have actually out-performed the current SEC teams in overall bowls. And while ACC teams have actually been to more BCS bowl games, the SEC does have the better overall winning percentage.

that article was written today not by me...but gasp, a newspaper for much of Maryland to see.

To insinuate enjoyment from it or shoot the messenger on what is being printed for the public to read about on the conference and school is odd and pretends it doesn't exist.

All-time bowl game winning percentage for teams currently in the ACC and SEC:

ACC: .5187
SEC: .5080

I'm surprised by that, I expected a little higher percentage from the consensus best conference in college football.

So why would you be looking for it, and why would you post it? Sure, it's in the paper, but there's lots of stuff in papers all over the country. Why is it you seem to find this stuff?

Nobody is pretending it doesn't exist or is acting oddly. Your personality just grates on people that have a healthy and positive outlook on life. The insinuation that you get enjoyment out of it is valid. It's obvious to most people with half a brain that you spend an inordinate amount of time and effort being a "glass is half empty", find the negative angle to everything kind of poster.

That article is retarded. BCS At-large berths for BCS conference teams pay $4.5M, not $17M.

öööö, GeeTee, you do have the innate ability in finding such articles. Although, I see myself as a "glass half full" person, it is hard to be real positive about our program and overall conference, right now. I do find myself getting tired of reading the many post of those here praising the current direction. Each year at the end of the season on this board, we've consistently asked ourselves "what happend??..."
I will forever support this program, but we as a whole:
1. Do not travel well!
2. Do not get initmately involved as a fan base to demand better leadership from our AD department, etc.

We simply become the boring YES men and allow for the continued mediocrity and attack those that see the realization of a so-so program.
