That's not how it works...HOO you beat is more important than raw Ws & Ls

If we lose to both Duke and Louisville AND another team that we theoretically "should" beat (like @ Tech or @ Pitt), we're gonna be sitting there with maybe 2/3 Q1 wins. There's a very good chance that doesn't get us in. We beat Duke or Louisville, that gives us a little more leeway. We pick up another BAD loss like BC, UNC, or @ Miami? Then we probably HAVE to win one of those two big home games to offset that.

You can't just look at it from the perspective of "oh we went 12-8 and finished 4th or 5th in the ACC, that's a lock." Conference standings are irrelevant in the at-large selection process unless you actually win the conference. Especially in what is clearly a down year for the ACC.
