That is exactly how the fanbase at Tulane, Memphis, UAB, and Wake Forest feels, too.

We should adjust for inflation to keep the bet interesting.

Good idea. Or buy some really nice scotch and wait.

Will be worth a lot more in fifty years. And, if GT goes to a NC then everyone can drink and there is no loser.

lol, I am only 23 so I am good, I hope. Bet taken. You may substitue for a fine bottle of scotch or whiskey as well since that fixes the inflation problem and you get the chance to get some Johnny Walker blue or Glennfidich scotch.

And we can split it, because I'll be really happy if we do happen to win a NC.

No we don't need FSU. If we win all the time, including our bowl games and out of conference, then we would be the FSU of the '90's. Everyone in our conference could be the FSU of the '90's if they won every öööö game. If VT would have beaten LSU, Alabama, USC, etc. in the years past, plus won most of their Orange Bowls (probably BCS National Championships) they would be considered the top school in the nation. Guess what, we got beat every year when FSU was good. I'd rather us step up, and kick everyone elses ass. To hell with FSU.

Lets just keep the $100 with inflation going and see what happens if 50 years or an NC come along.

And note that the bet is if GT "plays for" the NC, not wins.

Stewart Mandel says that it's not much. He says, "Let's face it, they play in a second tier conference and even when they won the ACC and went to a BCS game they didn't get much attention. The ACC just doesn't have anything going for it. They have a terrible BCS record and FSU and Miami didn't turn out like the ACC thought they would. I think Paul Johnson is the right man for that program, but they aren't very relevant."

ZING! And it's sad because I agree with just about everything he said.
There are only a few teams that are relevant in the national picture - Oregon and Auburn, Florida, Ohio State, and maybe a few others. The same answer can be given for practically any team.
