Despite the football team’s implosion over the last four games, the team has one thing going for it. It still gets to participate in the ACC Championship Game. While it hardly seems deserved at this point, it’s still there nonetheless. A win on Saturday will cure a lot of ills. This team still has a lot to play for.
Plus, think of it this way. This team is great at playing to the opposite of expectations. Start the year with no expectations from anyone? Win 8 in a row. Convince the media that you’re possible national title contender? Lose three-out-of-four and pull one out against a mediocre Wake team. Convince everyone that you’ve given up, that you have neither heart, talent, nor willpower? Win the ACC?
