The thing I don't like about following my college football team is that usually one loss eliminates you from winning it all. (Unless you are in the SEC.)
I watch the Hokies with the following mindset. I start at the top and when things become less likely, I shift the goal down a notch.
1. National Title (Pie in the sky thinking at best)
2. Conference Title (Nice! Hopefully we don't get an SEC team in the BCS game)
3. BCS at-large bid (Got one of these a couple years ago against Michigan. That was a catch Ref!)
4. The season is fucked. Just don't lose to Miami or Virginia please.
After this Saturday I will already be down to goal #2.
