How do you go about choosing a Division 1 college team?

Right now might be an excellent time to declare allegiance to Virginia Tech -- if only because no one could accuse you of being a bandwagon fan.

Now I know how Clark Griswold felt when he didn't get his Christmas bonus.

I don't know, that might be a painful route to take.

Very good chance, IMO.  Would expect Hoos to be favored going in.

Don’t you put that reverse jinx on us!

No. 

By S&P+ ratings, @Duke was the toughest game remaining on our schedule.  It’s within the realm of possibility, especially if you all don’t come together in the next 5 weeks.

We have blown a large number of football games in mind-melting ways.  Most (not all) of those were defensive pants-crapping in situations where it’s harder to blow the lead than to retain it.  Here’s the short list this decade that comes to mind:

(1) Duke 2010

(2) Southern Miss 2011

(3) LA Tech 2012

(4) VT 2012

(5) Maryland 2013

(6) VT 2014 

(7) VT 2014*

(8) VT 2014*

(9) VT 2014*

(10) ND 2015**

(10) UNC 2015

(11) VT 2015

(12) UConn 2016

(13) Louisville 2016

(14) Miami 2017

(15) At least one in 2018, my bet is VT.

* - for emphasis

** - see above video

You nailed it.

I must reply to this thread, there was no conclusive pull in any direction after this season. Maybe next year. Maybe I should just pick a team on the other side of the country or not in the SEC or ACC. I was impressed by UVA's bowl win.

Just be an App. St. fan. They’re the best school around here lol.

What's your thoughts on VT and Fuente as far as next year?

I think we’ll be fine. We had over 25 players go down with various injuries this season. We only had 5 seniors, so there’s lot s of talent coming back. 

Gotta figure out the QB spot and we need a RB to become a real RB. But we’ll have WR/TE weapons galore next season. 

And the defense should be much better. Webb will be back and maybe Farley will learn how to tackle. Only lose a couple inside linemen on that side. 

Im optimistic we can get back to the 8-10 win range next season. But who knows lol.
