I really thought some people were out of their minds suggesting we'd go 0-5 down the stretch. And although I said in the prediction thread that nothing would surprise me... I was surprised at how completely inept we were last night.A reasonable expectation for this program is to win 4 ACC games and 2-3 OOC games (strength of OOC dependent).
And to be competitive in all our games, even against the top teams. Sure, there will be a dud here and there, especially on the road against a top team. But 3 duds in a row, with a bye week mixed in is unacceptable.
So technically, we could meet the first two expectations. The third one is gone. Whether we think it's right or wrong, Wildhack isn't making a move until it's at least clear we'll have a losing record in the ACC.
If we lose to BC at home, I don't know how he stays silent about it.
I don't know why we spent the money to make the trip. Seriously. It was clear that no one on the team wanted to be there, or had any intention of making a real effort. It was mind blowing.
0-5 is legitimately on the table. Since we have a couple home games left we may steal one of them. But I'd be stunned if we win 2 and make a bowl. Even if we do, so what? 6-6 against this schedule is awful, and no one is going to attend a bowl game to see this garbage. It'll be literally a friends and family crowd.
I agree that, if pressed right now, JW is going to talk about process and getting better and still being able to achieve our goals, etc. But he has to know it's over, he's no dummy.
