Four of the top five are in our division, and we play the other one. Great.

Even if you had put your semicolon in the right place, your query suggests that the qb_depth_chart object is highly denormalized, or this would return multiple records.

Hah, yeah that is pretty bad. I'd almost say we have the hardest schedule in the ACC next year. The only thing that stops me is the fact that VT plays Alabama and Miami plays Oklahoma. And unfortunately for them they both play us

UNDEFEATED BABY!!! Paul Johnson don't take kindly to people crapping on him and his team. HD just took a big ol' poop on us by ranking us 3rd. CPJ and his posse know they are the BEST, baby, the BEST!!!

Okay, maybe that's over-doing it but I do think we, even with the tough schedule, will win the ACC next year.

Va Tech will be much better than last year. IMO, UNC will be a bit of a wild card, but regardless we've got a really good shot at winning playing in the ACCCG. We have to beat Va Tech though.

the Steelers had one of the toughest schedules in the league and won the Super Bowl. lets emulate them.

with CFB being so much more subjective with polls and computers, playing as many good teams as possible is a good thing if we want to do great things...

If the Steelers were playing in the BCS, they wouldn't have even been in the Super Bowl. In college football, the easier schedule the better, precisely because of the subjectivity. No one really looks at strength of schedule...they look at your record and what conference you're in.

Whatever, the Big East is the easiest route to the BCS championship game.

yeah, like when an undefeated team didnt make it b/c they didnt have enough quality wins?

your comments are true about being ranked high, but if you want to be in the title game, you have to play some games

see LSU, see Utah, see Oregon ... example abound. if there are only 2 teams with equal losses, your plan works, if you want to be guaranteed to be in the final game, then you have to be in a conference AND have to have some quality wins
