So Clemson and FSU are landing big time recruits in the heart of SEC country… who has won the last 6 national championships??... When will all the other ACC schools make a concerted effort to compete in the southeast US?? Is it just because there is a lack of SEC competition in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, or the northeast ??
Virginia Tech has had good teams but they’ve proven that they either can’t or won’t try to recruit the talent required to win a national championship.
North Carolina has the spending power to invest in their football (recruiting) but they’re happy with making the NCAA basketball tournament every year. I bet if NC State joined the SEC it would light a fire under UNC’s butt.
Nobody else takes football serious.
This is the underlying problem that plagues the ACC… How can anybody else take ACC football serious if the ACC doesn’t even take themselves serious.
It is really frustrating that nobody understands what it is really like to live in the southeast when the SEC is dominating football year after year after year.
Where do you get this idea? Did you see the recent facilities ranking for the ACC on ESPN? Carolina and State were #4 and #1 respectively around Clemson and FSU. Carolina is not on probation because nobody cared about football. If anything they sped while trying to get good quickly and got caught. We aren’t paying one football coach to not coach and just hired one of the top names for hire this year because we don’t care about football. Recruiting is going very well for Carolina right now also as Fedora is trying to recruit guys to his system.
Plus, UVA and VT have the tidewater area plus DC to recruit from in the own backyard. They don’t need to go to Florida or Georgia to get talent. I see where you are coming from but I don’t buy the idea that no other schools care about football.
Carolina is recruiting well, but a lot of good NC players are getting plucked by Clemson.
