check the math.Damn you, the loss is ALL on you. I told you before that to not put the cart before the horse (when asked if VT would be ahead of Boise State in the initial BCS standings.) You jinxed us, Rich was incorrect, your negative mojo is strong!
LSU loses to FL on Sat...we're up to #4
TX loses to OK following weekend..we're up to #3
We run the table and wait for FL-AL in the SEC Champ and play the winner for the National Title
Lampe is the ETERNAL JINXTo Hell with both of you.
but he doesn't effect Tech..too insignificant.
Ok, that felt better. A couple quick, not too in depth thoughts.

Way to get railroaded that 2nd half fellows. Foster changed the scheme to play the D from last season. Same basic wants ... let anyone but Dwyer beat you, namely Nesbitt. Ummm, he did. Last season the responsibility to watch, hit, hammer Nesbitt was on the senior middle linebackers. He changed the scheme and put that priority on the whip and rover with Kam over the top to help. Once PJ figured that out, the D was toast that 2nd half as Bud had no fixes for this. That option is a bitch to prepare for and that tweak was not expected and no adjustment was practiced. Sigh. I will say the D got a lot worse when Graves went out. I want to know if he got hurt on a chop block. If so, that's pretty shitty. No one can convince me that chop blocking should not be illegal.
I could get deeper, but I expected the D to be tested and our O to get a better effort from the Jackets than f$u got. Collegegameballs had a too common a Frank face during losses. We all hate seeing this!

So what does this all mean? First, uva is living on borrowed time with the Big 3 still on their sched. It's a 3 team race.
The tie breakers.
1. Combined head-to-head record among teams.
2. Record of the tied teams within the division.
3. Head-to-head competition against the team within the division with the best overall (divisional or conference) record, and proceeding through the division. Multiple ties within the division will be broken first to last.
4. Overall record versus all common non-divisional teams. (If they all played NC State, for example. We’ll use the Atlantic Division because of this particular scenario everyone is interested in.)
5. Combined record against all common Atlantic Division teams.
6. Record against common Atlantic Division teams with the best overall conference record, and then proceeding through the other common Atlantic Division opponents based on their order of finish in the division.
7. This one is kind of like the Big 12 tiebreaker that caused such a fuss last year, except a little smarter. The team with the highest ranking in the BCS Standings following the end of the regular season season will be the division winner UNLESS—and this is the key—UNLESS the second of the tied teams is ranked within five or fewer places of the highest ranked tied team. In that case, the head-to-head results of those two teams would determine who plays in the ACCCG. So if Miami and Virginia Tech were both ranked in the top 10 of the final BCS Standings, and the Canes were within five spots of the Hokies, Virginia Tech would win.
8. Worst case scenario? A draw determines the winner.
Toss out 1 thru 6 if it's a 3 way tie. Just read 7 and 8. 8's a bit scary.
