Tonight's slate is thin but it has one game that might at least be interesting:
7:30 PM - Virginia Tech vs. Georgia Tech. - ESPN
7:30 PM - Iowa State vs. Tulsa - Fox Sports 1
Enjoy, folks. Some stress-free football for everyone.
I'll be tuned into the GT-VT game. Excited to see how VT's D does against the option craziness
Those VT helmets are awful.
not stress free if you're betting on the games.
I totally understand, unless we weren't convinced by the same dude to take Iowa State and the points.
In any case, if this is Georgia Tech's second turnover of the quarter, this might be a long game for them.
I think VT caught a break there.
Already week 5. By the time we figure out why we can't run the ball, the season's going to be half over. It's easier to be a hockey or basketball fan, at least they play a lot of games. Football is just one big tease
Vad Lee may not get the chance to do a lot of accurate throwing if their OL is going to vaporize like that all evening.
That being said, Georgia Tech has actually outgained the Hokies to this point in the game.
VT doesn't hate playing on Thursday nights.
I just don't understand why everybody is in a race to make the ugliest uniforms in the history of the world. Who likes wearing these embarrassingly hideous things? Who keeps picking them, and spending money on them?? I don't understand
Dude, but the kids love em ... Allegedly. Brutal.
Recruits like new "fresh" uniforms and gear and that is why every single school is adding to their repertoire. You dont have to like it...but it will continue to romp in college football. Kids like the new uniforms...and seeing as how recruiting is the end all be all of college football...the new uniform trend is not going anywhere. This is VT's third uni in as many weeks.
I think Georgia Tech's look great. I like the old school look.
As everybody and their brother is going uniformz, "old school" is actually getting trendy.
Growing up in PA, I remember when Penn State's plain white unis were a bit of an embarassment to PSU fans, The attitude was it was something that Paterno insists on, but when he leaves they will be modernized to catch up with the rest of the world. Now they are considered downright trendy.
That's the beauty of Michigan's unis . . . they are old school and slick at the same time.
At this juncture in the game, the only non-Logan Thomas offensive yardage gained by Virginia Tech would be the 2 yards gained by Demitri Knowles. It's been good for a 14-0 Virginia Tech lead, however.
I'm glad I bet on Georgia Tech. I am the worst gambler on the planet. I should maybe consider quitting.
At least you didn't take Michigan to cover the spread the last 2 weeks. I blame Brian for his 62-0 prediction 2 weeks ago! (/s)
M rarely covers the spread against terrible opponents. I don't know why.
If GT cleans it up a little I could see them making it a game.
Gardner not on the list of Whitfield alumni. Interesting.
Didn't realize Logan Thomas was still QB at VT. His stats seem to have regressed compared to previous years, although 5-26 against 'Bama will severely hurt the stat line.
Him playing us and saying he will win a heismen with proper coaching.
Agree. I thought his potential was unlimited after seeing him against us. But he hasn't be very consistent this year...lots of INT's, some against less-than-stellar opponents.
VT had either three or four of their OL from that Sugar Bowl team drafted by the NFL. That probably had something to do with his play in that game.
As they say: "He's got all the physical tools". He's tall, has an arm, and he can run it. He just doesn't play quarterback particularly well. This will not prevent the Raiders or Jets for trading up to take him in the 1st round next year
Though, an argument could be made that it's a decent investment since Virginia Tech has been offensively deficient forever. He could maybe be molded into a decent QB
Hmmmmm, sounds familiar.
Probably have heard enough about Whitfield on ESPN for a couple of decades.
Abbreviated stats from the Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech game:
Yards per pass
Yards per rush
per the twitter
Tonight is not a night for football since my wife and kids hijacked the TV for the Big Bang Theory season premiere. However, a glass of Flor de Cana on the rocks with a lime wedge is a nice way to mellow out.
I'd hate to be a ga tech fan. Their offense is very interesting to watch but is not built
To run a 2 minute offense
Offense looks great against bad teams but good teams have it pretty well figured out and when they get down, there's little hope of coming back.
what do u mean figured out? there isnt anything to figure out. get blocks and the offense looks great, dont get blocks and it looks bad.
GT has been and will be inconsistent as long as Paul Johnson is the coach. Their defense actually looked good, but the offense is just stupid. The triple option had it's day, and is still effective against shaky defenses, but it's just not very flexible and takes way too much time. It's too bad, Georgia Tech has some deep football tradition. With their roster, they'd be smart to pluck an Oregon assistant.
it always looks terrible when no one is blocking. u think we would have fared much better in an I formation?
has the best W/L record of any coach Tech's had in the last 50 years. He's third all-time there behind Heisman and Bobby Dodd.
GT has a QB with a great arm... It's too bad he ran for his life the entire game when he dropped back to pass.
