Hmmm ... according to a couple of sites, Virginia Tech's "incredibly easy" schedule is ranked top 20 across the nation. Who to believe? A troll on some random message board? I don't think so you're an uninformed buffoon if you believe the Virginia Tech schedules an "incredibly easy" schedule in an effort to slip into bowl games.
Case in point, google around for NCAA Football Strength of Schedule. Here's the first site I found, it lists Virginia Tech's schedule at #15 in the nation. Feel free to provide others that offer an opposing point of view http://www.teamrankings.com/college-football/ranking/strength-of-schedule-by-team
Are rankings really that important? Coming into this season, how many teams were the Hokies scheduled to play that were ranked in the top 25? 4 or 5 at least. Sure, the ACC is having a down year and most of those teams have slipped out of the top 25. Does that mean the polls are "really accurate" and sort themselves out as the season progresses? Sure you could argue that ... but wait, Virginia Tech is climbing again and ranked #27 in the AP and #30 in the Coaches Poll.
