    The ACC is awful this year. I'd take the Big 12, Big East, and Big Ten over them.


    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

          a win is a win.. I don't care if Wisconsin plays like crap every game as long as they win. But OSU and PSU haven't overly impressed me.

          sig by me.. first in ages, pm with requests

            Someone didn't watch the second half of the OSU-Washington game...

              The Big Ten has been overrated the last couple of seasons, we all saw it last year with the way Ohio State and Michigan were blown out in their bowl games last season after being 1 and 2 in the polls with only a couple weeks left in the season. The Big Ten doesn't have the national championship contender this season that they have in the past and as a result they just don't look like they have in the past. Most thought the Big Ten was one of the better if not the best conference in college football the past few seasons, it's a conference full of mid tier bowl contenders and non bowl teams, of all the BCS conferences I feel the Big Ten is the least likely to get 2 teams into the BCS.

                Which two ACC teams are going to get into BCS Bowls before two Big Ten teams get there?

                  Wisconsins problem is that they play at the level their oppenent which is bad and good. ACC gets my vote for worst confrence, no team in their is a powerhouse anymore.

                    No such thing as an ugly 3-0, a win is a win gentleman, a win is a win.

                      The ACC is still worse, but other than the ACC the Big 10 is the weakest BCS conference.

                        Yeah, we did that all of last year too. We let the other team set the pace and then match them. It's a problem that shoulf be fixed, but hey we do have the nation's longest win streak so something's working.

                            The Big Ten has the 2nd best OOC record of any conference in college football thus far. We are also 5-4 against other major conferences from my calculations.

                            While I don't think the Big Ten should be lauded by the pundits necessarily, I think the level of criticism is unfair. That's because Michigan and OSU are the face of the conference, and if one struggles, it's automatically assumed it's a "down year". Especially if they lose to a D-2 school. Then they start to fixate on our other minor flaws like the Badgers not blowing out teams or Minnesota losing to scrubs. Then while their attention is diverted they don't notice as much how:

                            A Pac 10 top team like UCLA got obliterated by a mid major. How Oregon State got drubbed by Cincinnati. Arizona losing to New Mexico. Cal barely beating Colorado State. Or losing handily against 2 of 3 teams in the crappy Big Ten.

                            Or how Oklahoma State of the Big 12 got drubbed by Troy. Texas narrowly defeated a couple of mid majors. Iowa St. lost to Northern Iowa and Kent State. TAMU needing OT at home to beat Fresno State. Nebraska getting thumped at home by USC.

                            How about Virginia of the ACC getting throttled by Wyoming. NC St. beaten by Central Florida. UNC by ECU. Duke by UCONN. Maryland, Va Tech, and Miami getting destroyed by: West Virginia, LSU, and Oklahoma; respectively. That's in the few OOC games the ACC has actually played.

                            And don't forget mighty Louisville striking out against Kentucky. West Virginia scuffling with Marshall. Syracuse being the worst team in all of D1. Being 0-3 against the crappy Big 10. And that's in the few OOC opportunities they've had.

                            I do believe there's a double standard amongst the college football public regarding the Big Ten v. just about every other conference.

                            So to answer the question, are they the worst? Far from it. There are multiple major conferences worse than the Big Ten. But they aren't the best either. That would probably be the SEC. However when they've played Wisconsin recently, SEC stood for Speed Easily Contained :)

                              ACC is definitely weak right now. no question about it, but i can't see VT, miami and FSU staying down for much longer... it will be back in a few years, but no doubt it is bad this year.
                              Let's get it done Spaziani.

                              Belichick might be an a-hole... but I'd rather have an a-hole that wins than one that doesn't.

                                ACC isn't as good, neither is the Big East. Big Ten's not that good right now though, definitely a down year as compared to the past few years and beyond. (2006 they were top heavy, OSU/UM/UW were all good teams...this year OSU/UW/PSU are decent but not as good as the top teams of 06)
