ACC Bye Update: March 4th

Today I'm going to try to make it really simple.  The best we can hope for in terms of a bye is to get the 4th seed.

If we beat Va Tech and Clemson beats Wake Forest, we get the 4 seed no matter what BC does.

If we beat Va Tech and Wake Forest beats Clemson, we need BC to lose at least one game.

If we lose to Va Tech and Clemson beats Wake Forest, we can't get a bye.  We could go as low as 7, or as high as 5 depending on tonight's games between UNC-Va Tech and BC-NC State, as well as BC's game Sunday.

If we lose to Va Tech and Wake Forest beats Clemson, we need BC to lose at least one game and it doesn't matter if Va Tech wins or loses against UNC.

Conclusion: Might as well cheer for NC State tonight, because a BC loss just helps us in too many ways.  We should hope UNC beats Va Tech as well, because that guarantees us at least the 6 seed. 

 

PS- ScalpEm will like this story because it's all on one page.

 

PPS- If we don't have stuff go our way tonight (ie, at LEAST a Va Tech loss), I'll be convinced I'm jinxed and will not look at the ACC standings for the rest of the season.
