If an ACC team does not completely run the table and go 11-0, especially after Pitt and Syracuse comes in to further trash their SOS, then they are very heavily disadvantaged for playoff spots.
Sure, an ACC team in a given year might be good enough to be a national champ just like Utah may have been years ago or Boise State a year or two ago or whoever may have been whatever years ago, but if their SOS sucks, we'll never find out because they will not be picked.
