regular season. While no one wants to lose in a bowl, there is a big difference between 9-3 becoming 9-4 in a bowl game and 8-4 becoming 9-4 in a bowl game, when one considers the type of bowl game and opponent the former will garner.
This year's 7-5 team drew a much stronger bowl opponent than last year's 8-4 team did. That's the nature of our new relationship with the ACC, which didn't apply last year.
