It's really not a judgment of UCLA being better than UVA, it's just the inevitable result of adding up the numbers.

What's a joke is that the selection committee doesn't use the rankings as a guide and generally follow them, but then make common-sense adjustments as necessary. But, then you'd have people harping about the committee's subjective bias.

Regardless, it all sort of worked out brilliantly for UVA with UCLA, USC, OSU on the opposite half.

also when uva was ranked #1 they had the curse, but now at #2 they have less pressure IMO
