In my absence I thought I would provide a rooting guide for BC fans this weekend (I am ripping off this idea from All Things Longhorn). These are the teams we need to win and lose in order for our bowls options to improve.
Things I thought about:
– Loses that help Virginia Tech move into an automatic BCS bid (there by freeing up one of the attractive ACC slots).
– Loses that make Virginia Tech a more appealing at large invitee for a BCS game (once again opening a slot in the ACC affiliations)
– Loses to ACC teams that might get invited to good ACC bowls ahead of BC. While we want our past opponents to look strong, BC’s travel reputation is so weak that I don’t want to leave anything to chance.
