when we send one of our little private school ADs to sit on the board. We need to limit it to a real "Football" school ADs! Look what happened when we sent the WF rep to represent us on the NCAA Basketball selection committee...fewest number of ACC teams in the tournament in history, multiple years!
We're probably always going to be screwed due to our perception as being the #5 conference...and looking at our games vs ranked opponents this year, that isn't going to change. For example, UVA will lose both of it's games against PSU & TCU. Miami will lose both of it's games against ND & KSU. NCSU will probably drop it's opening game in Atlanta against Tennessee, and our only real hope for a win against a OOC ranked opponent is that Clemson takes Auburn, and that's still far from a sure thing.
Give us a true criteria and/or ranking system instead of what VT basketball has been experiencing over the last half decade...a moving target.
