ACC 1st Year Thoughts

Well, we're done with our first football season in the ACC. What are your thoughts on our new conference foes? Here are mine - although they may change during hoops season.

  • Eff Clemson with a cactus.
  • It's great to have BC back as an in-conference rival. They're a geographic rival, our student base has a good chunk of folks from Mass, we're on the same level in football, and we have a lot of good history. And, yes, they are our biggest rival and I doubt anyone else will replace that. Also, I was in the Dome when we played the same week they announced they were going to the ACC (after being adamant they were sticking with the Big East). That was the most vitriol I've felt in person from a sports crowd. Also, we destroyed them, so that was nice.
  • Eff Clemson with a rusty spoon.
  • I've never liked FSU much. I've always been a bit of a contrarian, and FSU was one of the best teams when I was in my teenage years, so I naturally disliked them. Until this year. I've been pulling for them quite a bit. They're a fun team to watch, and they're not in the SEC so it's a nice change of pace. I'm sure the hate will return soon enough, but for know they're much more palatable than I expected.
  • Eff Clemson with a porcupine.
  • I'm kind of sad Maryland's leaving the conference - they're so easy to hate. On the other hand, enjoy competing with SUNJ for the worst team in the B1G, Testudo!
  • Eff Clemson with hot coals.
  • Wake Forest seems like a team we could end up developing a bit of a rivalry with. We have a little recent history, and they're typically viewed as a "basketball school," although they've struggled the past few years, and they're a private school. I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops. We won't pass the other NC schools as rivals, but I could see a sort of rivalry of mutual respect developing.
  • Eff Clemson with a bayonet.
  • Not sure what to think about GA Tech yet. Obviously this year's game sucked, but I think the next time we play should be a different story. Of course, that won't be until 2057 or something, so whatever.
  • Eff Clemson with fire.
  • NC State is another team we could develop some hate with. We have a bit of recent hate in hoops (the Julius Hodge stuff a few years back), and beating them in their house this year probably didn't give them the best first impression in football. Like Wake, they have the other NC schools as rivals, but I think we could build a lower-tier rivalry.
  • Eff Clemson with a sharknado.
  • Pitt. Meh.
  • Eff Clemson with a land mine.
