As a big underdog, I love the way this is set up for Saturday.


All will be talking about how, with a win, UVA will vault to No. 1 in the rankings. Gameday will be there to commemorate the event. Well hold on, now. There is a little matter of the game to be played. We have the chance to play spoiler, and with all the hype/expectations/hoopla ESPN will bring it's a perfect storm for an upset. Don't make the game a formality. They know what's on the line and if we keep it close they might get a little tight.

I'd love to see a continued emphasis on defense like we saw last night. If all the focus/energy is on trying to score against the pack-line, it's easy for them to lull you asleep on the other end. Before you know it, they go on a 6-0 run and you feel like you're down 20. They want to play slow, ok, play slower. They want to keep the game in the 60s, keep it lower. We can only score 55? Hold them to 49.
