Are you ready for some football?!
Yeah, it’s College Football. That’s what this post will be about even if the title of it is more relative to NFL’s Monday Night moniker (BTW, tomorrow night; have fun!) Anyway, I want to get down and dirty and tackle some discussions for the second week of college football.
Intriguing games all around. For me, I can’t wait for Penn State to stomp all over Notre Dame. Last week, I watched ND get their butts handed to them by Georgia Tech, much like several of you, I was thrilled and excited to laugh about the Irish getting pounded. The offense was non-existent and the defense was putrid. Much like what you’ll be seeing out of them against Penn State, except worse!
However, the game I can’t wait to watch overall is when #9 Virginia Tech steps onto the field in Louisiana to play #2 LSU. I admit it — I’m a no-good Hokie homer. Every time I write something about VT, it’s always something that will have non-Hokies fans gritting their team as they read on. However, this time it will be something fresh — I’m going to bash them and their game. Read on non-Hokies fans!
– Have you ever seen a college QB on a major college team be worse than Sean Glennon? Think about this right here — in the NFL, you have Rex Grossman (I’m not going to be talking about his college days; just his recent NFL playing days) starting at QB for the Chicago Bears. Bears fans hate ’em, few like ’em, many make fun of ’em. The Bears’ defense is relevant in respect to the Hokies. A solid defensive line, an exponentially impressive linebacking core (you have your two players of Vince Hall and Xavier Adibi that we can dub Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs), and quite a nice secondary.
Sean Glennon, right now, is the equivalent of Rex Grossman. That alone could easily hand the game over to LSU already. Hell, I don’t want to kid myself. Even if Glennon plays decent (or actually tries to i.e pays attention to what he’s doing), that speedy LSU defense will eat him up like they did against Mississippi State. Except only worse, because this Hokies O-Line is…brr! Bad!
Quick, simple, and smart keys for the LSU Tigers that you will see as the Hokies falter on Saturday night:
– Pop-a-Glennon. That’s the game of choice.
– 3-and-outs for the Hokies will work the defense back onto the field which would have them become fatigued, which will lead to..
– Matt Flynn having more time adjusting and reading the Hokies D sets.
