Not only did the Atlantic Coast Conference finish the bowl season with a stellar 2-5 record, but it went 0-2 in the BCS bowl games. None were more embarrassing than the 70-33 ass-whupping West Virginia – that’s right, a Big East school – but on the Clemson Tigers in the Orange Bowl.
Given that the ACC champion Tigers lost to the Big East champs by over 30 and allowed 70 points in the process, it’s safe to say that the Big East has now passed over the ACC in the football totem pole.
Boy, do I feel like a dumbass.
Just like my tortured love affair with my alma mater NC State football and basketball programs, I will never, EVER, over-hype ACC football again. I should have learned my damn lesson.
