Gregg Brandon and his new spread offense couldn't even put up enough points to beat William & Mary. Virginia lost 26-14. That's worse than NC State losing to South Carolina, and Wake Forest losing to Baylor. It's worse that Virginia's loss to Duke last year. This one will resonate for a while, and the calls for Al Groh's job will get much louder much faster.
Virginia just reached a new low, and it brought the ACC down with it. And it's only the opening week.
With Duke currently trailing Richmond, the ACC can't even seem to get an edge on little guys. Fortunately for the conference, Virginia Tech is putting up a fight against Alabama, albeit without a touchdown, but hey, that's what the Hokies do -- win with defense and special teams.
At this point, the ACC will take it anyway it can get it.
