Hard to say without being there in the locker room around that game

If they start racking up frustration penalties, particularly of the personal foul kind, that quickly turns the narrative into one that the team is becoming completely unraveled. Back in 2006 when the cameras caught Tech players arguing with each other, goofing off, etc. while getting crunched by Boston College, that was the media story all week until Southern Miss, and even persisted a little bit until the Clemson upset the week after. The 2006 team was able to regroup, recenter, and get better. I don't know if the 2018 team could have done that, they might have become irrevocably fractured and had their season end at the same time as the UVA streak. Maybe the best thing at the time was just to get the game over with and move on to the next practice ASAP.
