UNC made mistakes in that game also, didn't they? Their mistakes didn't prove fatal, but our's did due to some bad calls. I realize normally criticising the refs is just a self-serving bias, but in some cases, like when we received an apology for the officiating error in the Minnesota game, it's apt.
Can you name multiple games in which VT won solely because of the refs? How about one?
Of course we remember the games in which VT might have won because of a questionable call, and our opponents remember games that they might have won against VT if not for a few questionable calls.
It's human nature to wonder "what if".
Certainly there have been games that might have gone our way if the refs had made different calls, and there are also games than may have gone against us if the refs made different calls. We'll never know
