Who do we need to root for, for the ACC to get 5 teams in the NCAA tourney?
The number I hear the most, is that the ACC will get 4 NCAA tourney bids this year. Who has the best shot at being a 5th tourney team and what do they have to do to get in?

Looking at the RPI's, It looks like UNC, Duke, FSU and UVA are the chosen 4 to get in right now :

from Realtimerpi.com

RPI Rk Atlantic Coast Conf All RPI SOS Rk SOS
2 Duke ------------- 3-0 15-2 0.6925 1 0.6198
16 North Carolina --- 2-1 15-3 0.6288 54 0.5534
36 Virginia ---------- 1-1 14-2 0.6021 135 0.5099
49 Florida St. ------- 2-1 11-6 0.5903 13 0.5870
58 N.C. St. --------- 2-1 13-5 0.5822 28 0.5701
61 Miami (FL) ------- 0-2 9-6 0.5772 29 0.5697
82 Virginia Tech -----0-3 11-6 0.5577 71 0.5417
90 Maryland ---------2-1 12-4 0.5514 129 0.5130
101 Wake Forest ----1-2 10-7 0.5400 62 0.5468
135 Georgia Tech --- 1-2 8-9 0.5159 78 0.5389
163 Clemson ---------1-2 9-8 0.4954 148 0.5045
213 Boston College -- 2-1 7-10 0.4721 93 0.5324

It looks like N.C. St., Miami (FL), Virginia Tech, and Maryland have the best shot at making a run with VT and UMD probably too far out to make it. UNC and Duke are safely in and either team losing to a bubble team will give that bubble team another top 50 RPI win. So really our best shot at having 5 teams in the tourney is to root for Miami or N.C.St to beat UNC and Duke and win almost all their remaining games. Or we're going to need a lower ranked team win the ACC tourney.

Plus maybe Maryland. Miami and VaTech still haven't won an ACC game yet...

We have (once again) a new coach so consistency will be an issue. I'd put the Terps in the NIT this year and the next. Expect us in the dance for 2014.

Thank you, ClairtonPanther... however, I must tell you that Va Tech is destined to play in the NIT every year. It's not just a rule, it's a law... or maybe, an axiom!

Right now, I'd be very happy if we make it into the NIT. I'm beginning to think that's a long shot.

Can I get a "y'all" from Pittsburgh! Woot Woot!

I've been rooting for Pitt and Cuse like y'all were ACC schools since the first announcement of expansion. You were accepted into the ACC so fast, it made my head spin. Now the grueling 27 month wait until y'all can start play.
