Around the ACC: Week 1

Posted on November 14, 2017, in ACC by StLouHoo.

Time to check in on the other 14 ACC programs, a quick recap of their previous week and a look ahead at their week to come.

Last Week: 3-0, beating lightweights Maine, SC State, and Sacred Heart
This Week: Sat 11/18 - Texas Tech (N); Sun 11/19 - Northwestern OR LaSalle (N); Wed 11/22 - Colgate (H)

These may actually be worthwhile watches; shame none of it may be on TV and no one will notice as they are...

Last: Bold Predictions

We all see a lot of potential in the Wahoos this season. But what must Virginia do to unlock that potential?

1) A leader must emerge. It won't be Devon Hall, it might be Isaiah Wilkins, but it'd really be best if one of Kyle Guy or [perhaps more likely] Ty Jerome rise to the occasion. We desperately need a tone-setter who will instill this team with anger, aggression, and hunger. We desperately need a leader who can put a rightful chip on our shoulders. Until/unless that happens, we'll continue to fold in big games and pressure situations.

2) Tony needs to be genero...
