For about five years now I have defended the ACC.
I've told family and friends that an ACC team was going to step up and become a serious national contender.
Clearly I have been wrong.
Ever since the ACC expanded the first time with Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech, it's like the conference has been the most dysfunctional of any of the BCS conferences.
So why should 2012 be any different?
I don't think I can give you a good reason. But there are still going to be some good matchups that are worth watching.
Maybe this is the year FSU lives up to its potential or Clemson doesn't have a meltdown.
