The Second Season Begins

Tonight Virginia Tech begins the second half of their season in College Park against teh Maryland Terrapins. Virginia Tech has looked very good in the first half going 6-0 and sporting one of the best defenses in the nation.

Tonight, however, begins an extremely tough stretch for the Hokies that will show just how serious a contender they are for the Rose Bowl. After Maryland, VT will face a solid BC team at home, followed by Miami and then on the road to Charlottesville. A lot of folks are picking VT to go to the ACC Championship game, but each of their next four games are potential landmines that could derail their dreams of an unbeaten season.

As I have said before, I believe that if VT does go unbeaten, they will go to the Rose Bowl based on the strength of their schedule. That goal will only be reached by taking it one game at a time.

Tonight, it's Maryland.

Unfortunately, I don't think our SoS will be enough to pull us over Texas. They have significantly more points than us.

But lets all cheer for those Red Raiders tomorrow!

I agree ross, but Zach thinks we will.
I agree, lets just hope TX loses then it wont matter.
We will control our own destiny (as long as GA doesn't pass us).
