I was thinking about this, too. The computers don't like the hokies at all--they've played a bullshit ACC schedule. They've got one quasi-impressive win on the road at Georgia Tech, and this would make two losses to Clemson, one at home and one at a neutral site. I could see the voters losing all faith and dropping them far, particularly if it ends up being a convincing loss.
Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
