  1. you still have virginia tech in and virginia is an also considered? tech is 5-4 (0-1) with a home loss to virginia; virginia is 6-3 with road wins over #30 rpi minnesota and VT, and no particularly bad losses (MoV not withstanding). I find it hard to imagine a scenario where tech finishes with enough acc wins to make the tourney in a down league this season, and certainly any “season ending today” bracket would not have them in either. Explain to me a scenario where VT makes the tourney over Virginia.

    1. Thanks for your response, I can see you are a student at Virginia and therefore have an interest in the situation. Here is my reasoning for having Virginia Tech in while having Virginia out. Yes, Virginia does have that ever important head to head victory, but if you look at the losses for Virginia compared to the losses for Virginia Tech, Virginia Tech clearly has the better of the situation. Virginia has lost to Washington which is expected, Wichita State which is bad but not terrible and Stanford which is a bad loss…very bad. Those three add up to seven losses. Virginia Tech’s losses are to Kansas State, UNLV, and Purdue who combine for only three losses (in addition to the aforementioned Virginia game). So given the fact that I believe Virginia Tech will beat Virginia when they play again in February, there is no reason for me to have Virginia ahead as their losses (especially the one to Stanford) prove they aren’t that good of a team going forward.
