They are FBS dummby
Dunno why people keep screwing that up. They were the Coastal Carolina or UCF of college football a few years back. Not that we should have lost to their current incarnation, but no need to make it sound even worse.

The only way we can win the Coastal is if Pitt has three conference losses…….and we don’t lose anymore in conference. I wouldn’t be making those reservations for Charlotte just yet

I love Georgia Tech. But that is simply an absolutely awful football conference. No doubt that hurts our recruiting. Leaving the SEC was the first big mistake. Not joining up with The Big 10 is another.

Nobody is making reservations. Pitt's conference record is currently 1-0, so 3 losses is not unimaginable. I think Clemson, for one, will play them tough.

That, and VT is probably the next best team left for them. If VT can beat Pitt, then Clemson, then maybe Syracuse at the end of the year. And we will need to win our last 4 ACC games.

If we can do that, the season is a success, and we go bowling. I won’t even care about the ACCCG (I say that now but know I’m just lying to myself).
The good thing is, the rest of our ACC schedule should be good games, or we at least shouldn't be widely outmatched.

VT is the only one I would think of as a wild card. On paper we're even at worst but I feel like they hate us so I would not be surprised by something weird.

The Va Tech and Virginia games are pretty much the big ones ahead.
Who knows what Miami will have or will be when we see them. We are 2-2 but can ill afford another loss. BC is looking like a good chance at a win and Miami minus King could be too.
But our D vs Virginia's offense and our O vs. Va Tech's D have me worried.

Taking another look at what North Carolina has ahead, they might be a 5-7 team when it's said and done. And they were the odds on favorites to win this thing. Then again, so was Clemson on the other side.

It’s pretty unlikely at this point, given our performance vs. Pitt, but it’s certainly mathematically possible. As long as there’s a chance, I’ll be pulling for things to fall into place so that we at least control our own destiny. And with Clemson being vulnerable this year, an ACC title is still up for grabs.

Like I said, unlikely… but who knows?

Not necessarily.

Should we win out and VT knocks off Pitt this weekend, GT, Pitt, and VT can still finish 6-2 in a 3 way tie where none of the 3 would have the head to head tie-breaker. Not sure how the down stream tie-breakers would work, but I imagine it would come down to who the 2nd loss for each team was.

I believe the next criteria is record against coastal division opponents.
