Default Herbstreit on why the ACC gets a bad wrap

Kirk Herbstreit was on the Packer and Durham Show this morning and he said the league doesn't get any respect because it doesn't not have enough top named brands, with the exception of Clemson winning right now.

"When they put this ACC together, I think all of us at the time thought, you got Virginia Tech with Frank Beamer. You got Florida State and Miami and Clemson is coming along, boy this is a pretty tough ACC. The all of sudden everybody did an about face. Everyone left and the only one standing is Clemson.

"If you get Virginia Tech going as a perennial top 10 team the way they used to be for so many years. You get Florida State back to being Florida State and Miami being Miami, could you imagine what the ACC would be and the perception it would have with Clemson being the top dog in the country?

"But right now, Duke can win seven or eight and no one even notices on the national level. It is the same with the PAC 12 and any conference really. If you took Ohio State and Michigan out of the Big Ten and they were struggling at 3-9, we would say the same thing about the Big Ten."
