The ACC Takes a Huge Step Back in 2018



The ACC had closed the gap the last few years and was arguably the best conference in the country last year, then 2018 happened and it looks more like the mid 1990s.

Both divisions in the ACC have now fallen behind both divisions in the Pac 12. You could easily make the case that the ACC is by far the worst Power 5 conference in the country.

Here is the updated Sagarin Ratings through October 13th:

SEC/ACC Rankings: Week 4



We are headed to Week 4 and Alabama continues to roll. They remain in the top spot as the gap continues to grow. Clemson holds off Georgia for the #2 spot and Arkansas free falls all the way to the bottom of these rankings.

For those keeping track, and I know you are, Clemson is projected as 16 points better than South Carolina on a neutral field. Clemson's strength of schedule dips to 98. That should get a boost after their games with Georgia Tech this week.

Comrade is sooooo wrong

The Comrade likes to pull screenshots. I thought it would be good to show his thoughts compared to Rob on the show. Listen to his nonsense about Georgia....Rob nailed it...The Comrade...not so much

Could he be anymore wrong? Catch more of the Comrade and his silly picks tonight on the show.

SEC/ACC Rankings: Week 3




We enter week three of the college football season and here are the latest Sagarin Ratings for all the SEC and ACC teams.


Georgia jumped Auburn after their beat down of South Carolina. Clemson stays at #2 but they dropped from a 94 rating to a 92 rating after escaping from College Station with a win.

The Gamecocks dropped one spot and lost two rating points after their loss. The Gamecocks' strength of schedule ranking is now 51st in the country which is the best SOS ranking of any SEC team. That isn't exactly impressive.

As we look forward to the Clemson/South Carolina game, according to the Sagarin Ratings, Clemson is 16 points better than the Gamecocks on a neutral field.

Four ACC teams top the SOS list with Duke, FSU, Louisville and North Carolina.
