I disagree with this


Plenty of years, this would be correct. But the ACC just dominated the ACC/B1G challenge, winning 11-3, the highest margin by far ever achieved since it started. Every ACC teams' computer metrics are going to be completely inflated because the ACC has done well OOC this year. The experts are predicting 10 or 11 ACC teams will make the tourney.

22-12 (10-10) (I am assuming one win in the ACC tournament followed by a loss) will undoubtedly get them in, as 9 wins in the ACC regular season with their schedule (they play Duke, Miami, UVa and Louisville twice) will mean they have a bunch of top 50 wins. They already have a decent road win vs. Ole Miss (65 Kenpom), beat Iowa at home (85 Kenpom), and their win vs. Washington will probably look at lot better at the end of the season than it does now (114 Kenpom), and Washington did win @ Kansas, which says something.

Tech was 22-12 (11-9) last year, and their only top 100 OOC wins were Mississippi at home (74 Kenpom, did not make tourney) and Michigan on the road (20 kenpom, was a 7 seed in NCAA tourney).

The ACC was not as good top to bottom last year, and they still were NOWHERE NEAR the bubble, coming comfortably in as a 9 seed. Only 8 ACC teams made the tourney last year.

If only 4 or 5 ACC teams are going to fail to make the tourney, it is very hard for me to believe that one of those teams will be Virginia Tech.
