Quote:Clemson:
Louisville 3.5
Akron 1
Virginia 3
NC State 4
Syracuse 3
Citadel 1
S Carolina 4
TOTAL 19.5


Quote: here's my scoring:
rival/marquee P5 4
meaningful P5 3
rival/marquee G5 3
random P5 2
meaningful G5 2
random G5 1
meaningful FCS 1
random FCS 0.5


Since when is NC State either Clemson's rival or a marquee P5 game?
Eight in a row, nine out of the last ten, and seventeen of the past twenty does not a rival make.

I counted NC State as a rival thanks to the whole "Textile Bowl" thing. True, it's probably more so for old guys who remember when Dick Sheridan coached in Raleigh. It probably would've been more accurate to score that one as a 3.5 "tweener" game (OTOH, Louisville could rise to full "rival" status soon, so the total would be the same).

I filled out the survey, I like to be well informed about all the teams. If I wanted to be informed by my team only I could simply read the articles at an FSU fan site (which I do anyway).

There has been no point in history that NC State was considered a rival on par with South Carolina for Clemson, including when Sheridan was coach. It's a manufactured rivalry, much along the lines of the one UConn's old coach tried to manufacture with UCF.

There's no question in my mind that the statement in bold is true. I will reduce the point value of the NC State game based on your comments.
