An outsider's perspective
We tend to see the world through gold and maroon colored glasses. I would also say our opinions on BC and the ACC are often more informed than some of the pundits who have seen BC play a game or two this year. Want a pretty impartial and fair look at the conference? Take a look at this recap by SMQ. I agree with his main point regarding BC:
Either way, the criteria will be the same for B.C. as it's been for would-be contenders from the Big East, which is now for all intents and purposes the ACC's equal: go undefeated, and hope there are no fellow unbeatens from any of the other five power conferences in line for the second spot.
We just need to take care of our business. The rest of college football will not matter until December 2. Right now we just need to beat Virginia Tech.
