Boise State and Nevada (I think) for 2011. Plus they still have Air Force and SDSU.

However, they will have lost BYU and Utah...

Now that I think about it some more... It is actually a pretty tough call to put them ahead of the ACC considering Miami, Florida State and Virginia Tech didn't lose a lot of players and should return pretty tough next year...

I understand you want to take you stance against my conference but seriously...

Big 12 returns what a broken down Texas team, mediocre Kansas and Mizzou, and only 1 good team in Oklahoma, who lost their star RB.

Pac 10 we will see how Stanford is after losing their coach. After Oregon and maybe USC, what do you have?

Mountain West - BYU (Independent), Utah (Pac-10) and TCU (Big East) are all but gone. Nevada is a WAC team through this year. Boise St looks set up to take this conference about every year (after this upcoming season).

Big 10... really?? Lets recap last year's bowl season... Outside Ohio St surviving against Arkansas, the rest of the conference top teams got slaughtered in their bowls; I witnessed the Alabama beat down of Mich St (felt sorry for their QBs). Even newcomer Nebraska got upset by Washington, of all teams.

To me conference strength takes all teams, not just the top 3, into consideration.

1) SEC
2) ACC
3) MWC
4) Pac 10
5) Big 10
6) Big East
7) Big 12

You really can't expect us to take you seriously when you post stuff like that.

Don't count out UNC either, they return a lot of starters from an 8-5 team last year.

So the NCAA wants to get tougher on blatantly cheating programs, huh? This has about as much believability as an 8 year old telling his parents they are "running away and never returning."

What a crock.

OK then, I'll bite.

When was the last time a top team from the ACC didn't get beat by an out of conference team in the regular season? 7 years? 8 years? When the top teams in a conference lose to teams from other conferences on a regular basis, the conference cannot possibly considered top tier.

Bro. The ACC champ last year not only got beat by a non-BCS team, they also got beat by an FCS team.

Has the ACC ever even sent a team to their championship game that didn't lose an OOC game? Off the top of my head, I don't think so.

You also put the MWC sans BYU and Utah ahead of the PAC12, BE, Big10, and The Big12, but not ahead of the ACC? I mean really?! Like I said, It's hard to take you serious when you post stuff like that.

If you really want to look it up. When was the last time any team from the ACC didn't lose OOC? My guess is 8-9 years. Most all of the conferences have at least one team every year that doesn't lose OOC, most have two or three. Not the ACC though.
