We can agree to disagree. However, I absolutely do not...

...have O&M glasses on. I'm not looking for VT to get more coverage. What has VT done recently to deserve any attention? I'm talking about Duke and UNC getting preferential treatment. UNC clearly cheated in egregious ways, and the ACC and NCAA protected them. Do you think VT would receive the same privilege? Many ACC schools didn't want VT to join the conference in the first place. Remember the comments of the UNC professor claiming that VT was beneath the level of excellence of the existing ACC schools? Give me a break.

I'll admit that I am probably not being objective with respect to the overall quality of the ACC - some of the non-revenue sports are great comference-wide - but when it comes to football, I've always viewed the ACC is a second-rate conference. I used to laugh when UVa fans would make comments about how if VT played in a "real conference", the football team wouldn't be as successful. Then VT joined the ACC and kicked everyone's teeth in for the first 4-5 seasons. Now it sure feels like VT has assimilated to the general crappy level of play of the rest of the conference, while Clemson has picked itself up and turned into a powerhouse. At this point, I can't help but feel that ACC football has become Clemson, and then a bunch of other mediocre teams. Clemson is absolutely dominant, but I really can't see any other team even approaching that level in the near future.

I'm just wrambling at this point. I won't even try to defend my dislike of the ACC as totally justified or rational. Perhaps I've watched too many poorly-produced Raycom broadcasts over the years...I've just never really liked the conference and I probably never really will.
