    The college football trickle down effect.

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

    Because they were able to rent out the Georgia dome. Only reason why.

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

    They and AC put on a good show last night.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    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.
