Well...that didn't go well earlier today. Updating with the assumption that FSU finishes off BC....

1. FSU 11-3
2. UVA 12-4
3. Va. Tech 9-4
4. Louisville 8-4
5. Ga. Tech 10-6
6. Clemson 9-6
7. UNC 9-6
8. Syracuse 9-7
9. Duke 9-8
10. N.C. State 9-8
11. Pittsburgh 6-9
12. Notre Dame 6-11
13. Wake Forest 3-14
14. Boston College 2-10
15. Miami 3-15

Ok...so at this point we are a 6 seed.
I think there are perhaps only two scenarios left that could get us into the top 4 double bye....

Scenario 1- Clemson beats Pitt. UVA beats Louisville. Wake beats GT. In this scenario Clemson finishes 10-6 (.625) and Louisville finishes 8-5 (.615)...and GT finishes 10-7. I do think the likelihood of GT losing at Wake is very, very slim.

Scenario 2- Clemson beats Pitt. UVA beats Louisville. GT beats Wake. Va. Tech misses tourney because of Covid. In this scenario, GT would finish 11-6 and be 3rd. Clemson would finish ahead of Louisville as outlined in scenario 1. VT would be out of the picture, so Clemson would be 4th. This assumes there are still 4 double byes if a team is removed from the tourney.

Cue the "so you're saying there's a chance" posts!

But I think it's likely that we win Saturday and end up either the 5th or 6th seed. 5th if Louisville loses...but GT will stay ahead of us at 4.

Remaining Games:

BC at Miami- Friday 6:00 ACC Network
GT at Wake- Friday 8:00 ACC Network

Pitt at Clemson- Saturday 12:00 ACC NX
FSU at Notre Dame- Saturday 12:00 ESPN2
UVA at Louisville- Saturday 4:00 ESPN2
Duke at UNC- Saturday 6:00 ESPN
