When [Wake Forest offensive guard Joe Looney] got to the ACC, those smaller, weaker, defensive linemen weren’t around anymore. In their place? Guys like Boston College defensive tackle/small country B.J. Rajii. Looney remembers vividly his first encounter with the Eagles’ brick wall in a jersey.

"It just showed me, ‘Hey kid, welcome to college football.’"
