Honestly Spawn, there's not much with predicting that seems to be an iron clad assurance other than the fact that you can always look at a favorable schedule and potentially pinpoint success. Remember, with an incredibly young team, VT won the ACC last season and beat Big East champ Cincinnati. As college football's competitive landscape changes, it's important to look at teams suddenly that can make a title game with 1 potential loss because the rest of their schedule will allow...especially late...because the BCS has shown that if one thing is particularly damning, it's not WHO you lose to, but WHEN you lose to them.

VT has a lot going for them. Taylor has been electric at times but has struggled to stay completely healthy. They've upgraded the talent behind him to at least be capable of running the same offense (unlike with Sean Glennon) if he gets hurt. Aside from that, Darren Evans is a complete beast and you know Foster will have the D as ready as anyone in the nation. Aside from Texas, VT seems like a decent choice. I like mixing it up a bit. Anyone can say the same thing as everyone else. Besides, if the Big 12 is as good as everyone says it supposedly is, shouldn't Texas slip up?
