ACC football has been the subject of derision for much of this season and Pat Narduzzi is sick and damn tired of it.

Narduzzi delivered a sharp message today to ESPN and others who criticize the league for its lack of balance and overall mediocrity. He even called out the Big Ten in the process.

Narduzzi urged those at ESPN to "wake up."

It is true that Ohio State is the most dominant program in the Big Ten, and has been for a while. However, there is slightly more parity overall in the league.

Assuming Clemson wins the ACC this year, it would be their fifth consecutive title and sixth in nine seasons. The other three were won by Florida State from 2012-14.

If Ohio State wins the Big Ten this season, they will have done so for the third year in a row and the fourth time in that same nine-year span. Wisconsin and Michigan State have two titles apiece and Penn State has one in that time frame.

Have to respect Narduzzi for sticking up for the league though.
