Miami's tryna lose
Whiskey_Clear: I don't hate Miami, they just stunk in the bowl game. A record of 3-2 in the bowl games is hardly a good statement by the ACC, especially with Maryland and Miami being beaten soundly. Maryland was beaten soundly by Marshall! Regardless if Maryland and Miami are not liked by some Tech fans has nothing to do with the present results of the ACC, the results are still not great.
We will see how the rest of the bowl season progresses. Only the lesser teams (records) in the ACC have won so far, and they were matched against other lesser teams from the nation. I wanted the ACC to win all the games, but I am not blind and understand we are not doing great at this time.
Let's see UNC 6-6 against 9-4 Cincinnati Win, 6-6 Syracuse against 8-4 Minnesota Win, 6-6 Pittsburgh against 10-3 Bowling Green Win. Looks like the ACC "lesser" teams have done pretty well against the "lesser" teams from the AAC (Big East), the Big 10 and a "greater" team from the MAC. Louisville 11-1 is a much better team than Miami 8-4 and showed it. Marshall 10-4 lost in their conference championship game and the MD game was a one score gmae until late. While I would have loved to see the ACC 5-0 at this stage, 3-2 is about what I would have expected.
Only two I would disagree with you on is that I think Duke has a 15% chance, at best. And I would put Ohio State at 60 or 65%. Otherwise, I think you and I pretty much agree.Remaing games & my view in percentage odds: Ole Miss/GT - 53/47; Arizona/Boston College - 55/45, UCLA/VT 60/40, Texas A&M 70/30, Ohio State/Clemson 55/45, Auburn/FSU 40/60. Of course, I would like to see us win all six games.
