ACC Bubble Analysis for January 19, 2017

This is going to be a weekly article, where I seed the ACC teams and where I think they’d should be placed if the tournament started the same day as my posting. In my ranking system, any RPI top (100) win is a good win and any RPI top (50) obviously worth more. Any losses …

Former Clemson AD Terry Don Phillips knew Dabo Swinney could be a great coach.

I’ve been wondering what to write about Clemson after their national title. As I was thinking about what Clemson just accomplished, I was trying to comprehend just how it happened.
