Whoopty doo. What does it all mean Basil? ...
The young team has to learn how to win. It might not have come through late against Wake Forest, but the program took a big step in its overall maturity with Thaddeus Lewis putting together a tremendous game throwing for 305 yards. However, the running game isn't going to magically appear next week against Virginia Tech. The defense did an excellent job loading up to stop Micah Andrews and the Demon Deacon running game, but it'll be hard for the team to find anything to be happy about after such a devastating defeat.
