Clemson and FSU will set Reputation of ACC for 2013

I can hear the comments now from the four letter network’s talking heads: “The ACC loses more BCS conference match ups….”  The presumption is that the ACC is a weak football conference if they lose lopsided match ups like unranked Virginia Tech vs. #1 Alabama.  I’m not convinced.  Conferences should not be judged by the performance of middle or bottom tier teams.  Would an Illinois victory over Kentucky indicate that the Big 10 is a better conference than the SEC?  No way.

The biggest game this weekend for the ACC is Clemson vs. Georgia.  As a matter of fact, it is the only game that really matters on the national front.

A Clemson victory would likely catapult them into the Top 5, put them in the national title conversation, and set up a nationally relevant game against Florida State on October 18th.  Florida State, the other ranked ACC team, has it’s own responsibility for carrying the ACC flag.  The Noles need to win their games against inferior competition and continue their presence near the Top 10 for a majority of the season.

How many years has it been since an ACC football team has been in the national title conversation in November?  It’s up to you Clemson and Florida State to buck the trend.

Non-Conference Schedule

How many non-conference ranked opponents will be played by conferences this year?

ACC:  11

Big 12: 2

Big 10: 4

Pac 12:  8

SEC:  who cares

Winston Debut

As Florida State finishes up preparations for the Pittsburgh Panthers, most fans are eagerly anticipating the debut of freshman QB Jameis Winston.  Winston has generated a significant amount of hype since his MVP winning Elite 11 camp in 2011.  The hype reached epic proportions after Winston’s spring game performance highlighted by a 58 yd strike against All-ACC conference corner Lamarcus Joyner.

New Confidential Feature: Weekly ACC Updates!

The Atlantic Coast Confidential understands that not everyone wants to be an official “follower,” which entitles you to receive an email every time there is a new blog entry.

As such, the Confidential is creating a mailing list for semi-followers, who will receive a weekly email with links to all of the various blog entries of the past week.  This is a happy medium.  Actually, some of our existing followers may want to sign-up anyway, just to make sure that they did not miss a great blog post.

If you are interested in signing up, please do so in the upper, right-hand corner of this page: http://www.mysharedpage.com/acc-sports-weekly.  You’ll have to confirm the sign-up.  Check your SPAM folder if you do not receive promptly.

Of course, if you ever want to be removed from the list [i.e. if your team joins the Big 10 (sad emoticon) or gets the Temple treatment (smiley face)], just send an email to afc44enterprises@yahoo.com.

Interestingly, for this post, we thought it would be neat to note the most popular blog entries from the past week:

This satirical post dominated the readership this past week.  Correspondent: Matt Caffrey

A general criticism of the entire Rutgers, athletic director issue.  Not a banner week for Rutgers.

The third most popular blog entry of the week was this tongue-in-cheek look at the American’s new logo.

Thanks to everyone who helped make these, and other blog entries, popular on the Internet.

GO ACC!
