Hokies Make a Statement

With many of the pundits calling #4 Virginia Tech "overrated" after beating up on two straight cupcakes by identical scores of 45-0, the Hokies made a statement this afternoon by absolutely dismantling a talented #15 Georgia Tech team 51-7.

The Hokies clearly belongs in the national championship discussion right now along with USC and Texas. This could very well be the best defense Virginia Tech has ever had, which is saying a lot given the talent Virginia Tech has had on defense over the years. The Hokies have only allowed two touchdowns so far this season and have outscored their opponents 161-23.

Next week the Hokies will face a serious test travelling to Morgantown to face rival West Virginia for what could be the last meeting between these two teams for quite some time. Of course it was West Virginia that derailed VT's title hopes back in 2003, when the Hokies came in 6-0. The Black Diamond trophy match will be no cakewalk for the Hokies, but if they escape Wild, Wonderful West Virginia unbeaten, the folks in Blacksburg could be in store for a very special season.

The Hokies may have one this one, but next week they have to play the dynamic WVU Mountaineers in Morgantown. WVU is headed straight to the Rose Bowl. The Mountaineers are an impressive 4-0 after a win over East Carolina. Furthermore, the Mountaineers play in the difficult Big East Conference. Can the Hokies defeat WVU's amazing game play? Probably not (sorry to all you Hokie fans). Oh well, the Hokies can still go to the another bowl game. It shouldn't be too tough. They only play in the ACC.

As long as we can score a few points we will be good.
Our D will shut down their offense, but Morgantown is a tough place for any opposing offense to score in.
Of course we could just get 3 TDs from the defense like today.
