there have a been a heap ton of losses I've taken worse over the past 16 years than this one. IMO other than last year, there isn't many other games I would have minded losing to UVa over the past 16 years than this one. Yes it was for the division, and it'd be nice but I don't think any of us think we are really ready to contend for a conference title.
We played a team with a sr QB and SR playmakers. At their place. And we still could have won. We weren't going to beat them from now until eternity. Our future looks much brighter. If this loss is hurting you, think about losing in 04 or 07 or 11. You know those crushed them way more than this one was worth.
And as a disclaimer I wanted this one bad, I was bout to puke my nerves were so bad in second half of that game. But when it was decided I wasn't that upset. Maybe it was time for the streak to end. Maybe I'm just better at looking at the big picture now, but I really like the spot this program is in and I can't believe that was possible after the Duke game.
