    Common sense says you should stay away from a sports forum.

    ... yes, STATE remains undefeated in the Atlantic Division after thumping the Deacons, so really if they do beat Clemson & BC to close out, then I think the ACC should recognize the fact that they won their Division outright, having gone undefeated in their Division, and so should justifiably represent their Division in the ACC Championship game, it's just common sense!!!!!

    We just need to win out. Clemson especially would be good and help the bowl prospects.

    If State played 9 conference games and went 6-0 in their division but lost 3 conference games to teams out of their division, their record would be 6-3 in their divisional standing. If FSU went 4-2 in the division but went 3-0 against the other conference teams, their record in the Atlantic Division would be 7-2 and they would be the Atlantic Division champions. Its really pretty simple.

    I'm a State fan, but he is right and you are totally wrong and must not know very much about sports. The ACC, just like all conferences, college, pro, high school, etc go by conference losses in their standings not divisional losses. Divisional losses are only used as one of the tie breakers. Look at the ACC Atlantic Division standings, FSU 5-1, Clemson 5-1, State 2-3. Nowhere will you see that State is undefeated in the division and that would only be mentioned as a tie breaker, and it would be the second tie breaker, the first would be head to head match ups, then the divisional record would come into play and that would only happen if 3 teams were tied. State and FSU tie, State wins due to head to head match up. FSU and Clemson tie, FSU wins due to tie breaker. For the divisional record to even come into play, State, FSU and Clemson would all 3 have to be tied, but even then at this point the divisional record still would not come into play because State would have to beat Clemson also to even stand a chance at a tie, so they would win by beating both teams, not by the divisional record. You would have to have State beating FSU, FSU beating Clemson, and Clemson beating State for them to go to the divisional record for the tie breaker and that's not going to happen because if Clemson beats State there is no chance of a tie. So in other words, State stands about as much of a chance as an ice cube in H*ll of winning the Atlantic Division. As I said, all conference, college, pro, etc work that way, they work that way in football, basketball, baseball, and about all sports that I know of. Just as if the Panthers would go undefeated in their division beating the Saints, Falcons, Bucs twice and go 6-0 in their division, if they lose to the other teams and finish 6-10, they are not going to any kind of playoff or championship game.
