So I know that this is the most important subject matter for you: the weekly Virginia Tech football update. Let me just say that I only give this when things are going well. And this was a damn good week in Hokie Land.
The Hokies started the week by being ranked for the first time this season. We debuted at number 25 in the AP Poll, but had to go on the road to play the #17 ranked North Carolina Tar Heels. UNC was fresh off of a huge road win against Florida State, was playing at home, had a high-powered offense, and was riding high. So this looked to be a tough game.
It was not. As I had earlier predicted to my VT buddies, the Hokies kicked UNC in the butt and romped to a 34-3 victory. It was a great game in all facets, but VT still has some areas for improvement. Figure that we will rise substantially in the polls this week.
This upcoming Saturday, the Hokies go to the Jiffy Pop Dome in Syracuse to take on the Orange. I've been to a game there before, and it is LOUD. So we'll see how that goes.
In other good news, the felons at the University of Miami used their work release time on Saturday to choke up a home loss to Florida State. So now VT is alone atop the ACC Coastal Division standings. And after the game against the 'Cuse, scUM comes to Blacksburg on a Thursday night for a classic ACC showdown.
Let's Go!! Hokies!!
Oops, one more football gloat: BRP has always been a Minnesota Vikings fan, and the Vikes destroyed a 3-1 Houston Texans team today to go to 5-0. Football never goes this well for me, so I'm going to bask in this while the sun is shining.
Much obliged for tolerating me yet again.
