Ranking Clemson vs Sakerlina, Jawja & the ACC/past 15 years

1999 was the first year of the BCS & this is the last year. It's been 15 years. Back in 1999, Clemson hired Tommy Bowden & Sakerlina hired Lou Holtz. I thought it was a good time to look back at a couple stats:

  • average wins & losses per year / winning % / # of 10 win seasons
  • times ranked in top 25 & top ten
  • # of bowls played, bowl wins
  • BCS bowls & wins
  • conference & division championships & if you're FSU, 2 national championships (i'm giving the Orange bowl & Championship to Clemson & FSU since they haven't played yet)

I ranked the 12 team ACC & our 2 SEC rivals 1-14 based on the above criteria.
