They are a completely overrated program with a shit endowment. I'm not interested in them at all, and the Big 12 isn't either...
Sorry, I disagree. Clemson has a very passionate football fan base, history and market share. What they don't have is a marquee slate of conference games in the ACC. No matter you personal taste about Clemson, they are a football name that "move the needles" when TV picks their big games. They're ranked 18 in the early ESPN poll.
You match Clemson up with OU, UT and whatever Big 12 program is ranked that year and you will get the average "college football fan" to watch it, not just people connected to one of the two programs.
