Virginia? Really?

I turn this post over to Boomani Jones, writing about this football season:

17. Virginia -- with a season-opening loss to Wyoming and close calls against North Carolina, Georgia Tech and Middle Tennessee State -- is now ranked No. 19 in the BCS Standings.

If Virginia keeps winning, that -- combined with last year's aesthetically revolting ACC championship game -- will ensure that the conference's shindig will soon be sponsored by Spam.

16. In all fairness, UVA's last win was over previously undefeated UConn.

Um ... UVA played a team that -- presumably with a straight face -- scheduled the University of Maine.

UNC's played three legitimate Top 25 teams so far this season. Does anyone who saw the Virginia game think UVa lived up to that level of competition?
