Danny Kanell is a known ACC apologist and homer. That is definitely the only explanation for his latest top eight teams list.
Clemson took a bad loss to Syracuse on Friday night and there is no way that they should be a top six team let alone the No. 2 team. There’s no explaining this one away and Kanell seriously screwed up this list as USC or Oklahoma should have made it somewhere in there or even have Clemson as the bottom team with TCU or Georgia in the second spot.
