Well to win the title I'm pretty sure you're gonna have to win the ACC. Pretty confident actually.
So USC wins the Pac whatever, gets destroyed by Alabama. So what, SC fans run around claimin Pac whatever titles?
Ohio State wins the Big 10, gets rolled by LSU, Buckeyes do what, puff they chest out about the damn conference title they won?
Do you HONESTLY believe that Ed Reed, Sean Taylor, Ken Dorsey, Vince Wilfork were clamorin for that Big East title? Do you think they even knew they played in the Big East?
I absolutely care ZERO about winning some conference title. The whole title, is all that matters. Save your participation badges for the Georgia fanbases, or the Boise State folks, all the Pac 10 schools not named USC, etc. Those places care about winning conference titles, or a bowl game, what have you.
Utah Jazz went to the playoffs 23 years in a row. And? Oakland A's make the playoffs every year, got a book and movie made about them, have no idea what a World Series win looks like since 88.
We don't obsess over sports to watch teams make the playoffs, or win a bowl game, we obsess over winning it all. I don't care about factors, or votes, or anything else. Raise a banner, or the year was a waste. That's the only way to be. Smaller goals make you a smaller program.
The Dodgers are about to fire their manager while making the NLCS if they don't win this series. That fanbase got their priorities in order.
I don't get with all this pat on the back, we're 9-2 and won the southern half of our conference, let's raise a flag about it.
