So after week's of trying to figure out this whacky conference that is the ACC, we here at 4th and Fail have devised a very complex mathematic formula for determining the eventual conference champion, who will be crowned on December 6th in Tampa.
As of this week, nine of the conferences 12 teams were still in contention for a trip to Tampa. Only Duke, Clemson and NC State have eliminated themselves. Of the nine remaining teams, only Maryland and Miami controlled their own destiny entering the week.
So withour further ado, and after hours of computations and permutations and all sorts of advanced calculations, we give you our solution for how to pick the ACC champion:
Directions: Simply close your eyes, flick the spinning arrow and pray that it lands on the team of your preference if you're an ACC fan (or a betting man).
UPDATE: On ESPN's College Football Final show last night (December 6th/7th), before they showed the highlights of the ACC Championship game, they had a similar wheel-of-fortune-esque gameshow spinner that represented all the ACC teams. I've heard of them snatching other people's jokes from blogs, but material like this? Perhaps it's a bit of a "rip-off"? Oh well.
