All the credit to the individuals on the team for taking ownership of their games and the work needed to make this progress. They are clearly seeing that the effort and commitment is worth it. A well deserved break is ahead and we look forward to some positive practices next week as we prepare for a very strong Virginia Tech team and the rest of the season. We intend to keep it up and get better as we go.”
