Revised Atlantic scenarios

← return to D1SCOURSE

Oh, it could have been so easy.

Toss two teams out, have one leave with a ticket to Tampa. Sounded fun.

Then Boston College went and spoiled everything.

So instead of a winner-take-all showdown that’s definite on Saturday, there’s just a meaningful game.

Or it could be winner-take-all, if Boston College loses to Wake Forest in the hours leading into the Florida State-Maryland tussle.

The Atlantic Division has only three games that matter remaining (Maryland-Florida State, Maryland-Boston College and Boston College-Wake). And since two times two times two equals eight, there are a limited number of scenarios left.

In four of them, Maryland wins; in two, it is Boston College. Both Florida State and Wake Forest still have a path to a title.

And here they are, including a corrected version of an earlier miscue (*-based on division record):
