ESPN keeps labelling the upcoming East Carolina/Virginia Tech game this weekend a “trap game”.

Bullshit.

How can a team you’ve played and fought — tooth and nails — almost annually for the past 20 years represent the opponent in a “trap game”?

The Hokies know what to expect; these games, for them, are always tough. Home or away, it doesn’t matter. ECU is a constant formidable foe.

I reckon Bud Foster will shock everybody with his defensive scheme again. I think he’ll rush three and drop eight into coverage, with little or no blitzing. Remember, the ECU quarterback gets rid of the ball quickly. Bud will allow some short completions with the idea of stopping the receiver with a short gain. Good tackling will be at a premium. Even with only three rushing, Dadi Nicolas might apply some pressure on occasion.

I hope the Hokies will establish the run early and often in this one — Marshawn Williams’ 2.5 ypc should augment.
