    So it's unlikely, but here's our path to the ACCCG :cigar:

    Basically a four-way tie at 5-3 where we are 3-0 against the teams we're tied with. Stuff in red hasn't happened yet. I didn't list the crossover opponents in detail, but they aren't that far fetched.

    Maybe we could focus on just getting bowl eligible instead, lol

    I was just going to ask if there was any mathematical chance for us.
    Thanks!

    Doesn’t VT need to lose two more?

    This is only 1 of the scenarios. Better to just throw out everything that needs to happen:
    Team - Losses needed (aside from us for UVA, Miami, and UNC)
    UVA - 1
    VT - 2
    Miami - 1
    Pitt - 3
    Duke - 2
    UNC - 0

    There may be a way Duke and/or Pitt only have to lose 1 and 2 respectively, but I didn't go in and analyze the various 3-4-5 (lol) way tiebreakers. But point being, if we win out, I'm not saying it's gonna happen, but there's a chance. Pitt is not a good team and has 4 very loseable games left. Duke still has Clemson so there's 1 guaranteed loss and 2 Coastal road games.

    If BC could clear Miami to that 0 count tonight, that'd be a good start.

    Basically need UNC to win out against everyone except us and BC to win their next 2 and a few other miracles. Let's just focus on getting to a bowl and beating uga.

    If our heart and soul was focused on beating ugag, the mediocre Coastal and just any bowl game would take care of themselves.

    Success is guaranteed when one aims low enough.

    @Pitt, vs. Miami, vs. UVA are our best chances for 2 VT losses. To be honest, I think out of those 5 teams & loss totals I listed above, VT losing 2 more games is the least likely IMHO. Even though we need 3 losses from Pitt, they have had the easiest (UNC + us) Coastal games of their schedule so far. If they lost 4 out of their last 5, I wouldn't be surprised.

    If VT flames out the rest of the season Justin Fuente could be fighting to keep his job in 2019

    As a Paul Johnson hater myself, I would argue that should be a given considering he's 0-3 against PJ.

    We are all Boston College fans tonight.

    Thanks for doing this analysis. Just really frustrates the dickens out of me though - if we played more consistently, this year was set up perfectly for us to have a 6-2 kind of ACC season. The Coastal really has no great teams in it - they are all beatable.

    Won't matter too much but would be nice. Miami has a loss sitting out there somewhere between @BC, Duke, @VT, and Pitt but really would be nice if we could get that loss out of the way tonight and root for Miami to beat the everliving **** out of those last 3 teams.

    I think this Miami team could very well choke themselves into the Belk Bowl
