Clemson AD Dan Radakovich on the ACC's rise the past few seasons: "If there's three teams in that one tier, there's a couple that are really knocking on the door. Certainly Miami and North Carolina are having outstanding years, as is Virginia Tech. ... We had to ramp up the football piece of it. It was discussed, it was, 'How are we going to do this? Let's continue to challenge ourselves with an out-of-conference schedule that's been really, really good. And once you're in that, you've gotta win those games. That's when a little bit of the credibility will come forward.' We've remained in the conversation, which is I think the most important piece."
