    It's downright hilarious to look at the historical roster of matchups for this game, given the FSU/Miami blood rivalry bonanza the conference had in mind at its inception:
    • 2005: Florida State-Virginia Tech
    • 2006: Wake Forest-Georgia Tech
    • 2007: Boston College-Virginia Tech
    • 2008: Boston College-Virginia Tech
    • 2009: Clemson-Georgia Tech
    • 2010: Florida State-Virginia Tech
    • 2011: Clemson-Virginia Tech
    • 2012: Florida State-Georgia Tech
    • 2013: Florida State-Duke
    • 2014: Florida State-Georgia Tech
    • 2015: Clemson-north carolina
    • 2016: Clemson-Virginia Tech
    • 2017: Clemson-Miami
    • 2018: Clemson-Pitt
    • 2019: Clemson-Virginia
    • 2020: Clemson-Notre Dame
    • 2021: Wake Forest-Pitt

    In a normal year, if either of these teams made the championship game, we (and they) would know they had little or no chance. But this year, either of those teams has a legitimate chance to be the ACC Champ. So bizarre! (Or so sad?)

    I want to live in a world where Wake Forest(?!?!) holds more championship game-era ACC titles than over 70% of the rest of the conference (if they win tomorrow, they'll have more such championships than all but Clemson, Florida State, and Virginia Tech).

    Me too ... TV ratings be dadgummed, anything that torpedoes the hopes and expectations of TV Execs is goodness to me.

    i mean, every game since 2008 has had clemson or FSU. and before that, it was VT. I'd say this is the worst matchup since 2006, and even then GT was more relevant.

    If things continue this way, ACC going to be making out 12 years from now when they're still getting paid by ESPN on a contract for games that most people don't want to watch.

    ACC - "So, the ACC championship is between the Black Knights of Charlottesville High School and the Fighting Saints of Our Lady of Angels Monastery."

    ESPN - "Wait, what? Its between a high school and a seminary school?"

    ACC - "Well, they're the ACC's divisional champions. And its a nunnary, they play tough D."

    It's amazing how much coaching continuity matters.

    I'm not going to touch this ones, with, as the season dictates, a 39.5' pole.

    Bama and Georgia are so afraid of the competition, they are playing 3 hours earlier. Chickens!

    Michigan Iowa is a fun one so far. UM up 14-3 with two big plays early. Iowa defense has locked in recently.
