    The college football trickle down effect.

    In all honesty, that's not a whole lot better than a good amount of ACC teams.

    They haven't ever hosted ESPN's college gameday. They do not belong.

    Define "a good amount". If by good amount you mean Wake Forest, then you're correct. If by good amount you mean multiple ACC teams then you're way off base.

    It was a pretty good game. They had lost their last 16 straight before picking up the win last night.
