We’re alive but it’s a very long shot.

need UVA Pitt, & UNC to lose one more.
Need VT to lose two more.

the GT loss will haunt us all year.
It’s very unlikely but I still couldn’t believe it was possible after our 3-4 start

If Miami wins out, UVA wins the coastal only and Wake forest drops 2 games, Does Miami has a CHANCE at the orange bowl?
Probably not. The Orange Bowl selection is for the "highest ranked ACC team" not in the CFP. More than likely Virginia would be the team selected if they win the Coastal. If Virginia loses another conference game and Miami wins out, both teams would be 5-3 in the conference. The problem is that there would like be a 3 or more team tie at 5-3. UNC, Pitt, and/or VT is going to finish 5-3. The tie breaker for 3 or more teams is:

1) Record head to head among tying teams.
2) Record within the division.

Head to head would remain a tie. Within the division would go to Virginia because of the their 3 conference losses, one of them was to Louisville from the Atlantic.

If UVA win the Coastal at 5-3 and loses to Clemson in the ACC title game, then Miami would have a great chance because I believe we would be the highest ranked team given Wake loses 2 more games which is possible given they still have to play VT, Clemson, Duke, and Syracuse. VT and Duke are trap games because they could be thinking about Clemson while playing VT and after a Clemson loss they could be beat up when they play Duke.

DJ Ivey single handedly loss us the GT game.
C'mon man!!! Stop this garbage. There is no one play that loses a game. You can point to any of the 3 missed FGs, the FG to give us the lead with 30 seconds left, the defense letting GT run for over 200 yards and not stopping them in OT, etc. Look at it a different way. It took all these thing to happen for us to lose the game. Anyone of them doesn't happen and we win.
