Fucking Georgia Tech-38 Virginia Tech- look does it matter, we fucking lost

FUCK Georgia Tech.....I hate them so much....I hate Reggie Ball, fucking Calvin Johnson, Tashard Choice, James Johnson, etc.....I fucking hate them all!!!

Well thank you Yellow Jackets, for ruining my if it wasnt ruined enough before you had to put your 38 cents in....bastards...congrats you pricks, you kept your streak of beating at least 1 ranked team alive....why couldn't you wait to do it against Miami....oh shit, Miami isn't ranked oh well,but why us, what did we ever do to you, what's that....we beat you 51-7 last year...well that very well may be but that is still not a valid excuse.

Great I just stubbed 4 of my toes....can this fucking night get any worse???

This game was just like my first sexual experience. Over with real fast and just ends with crying and hurtful remarks. Ohhhh...probaly shouldn't have said that one....fuck it.

Anyway Georgia Tech scored faster than Matt Leinart did with Paris Hilton. It only took them 10 minutes to go up 21-0 on the "best defense in the nation". VTECH did make it a game...for awhile with a TD and 2 FGs but GT kicked a FG at the end of the half and made it 24-13 halftime.

The second half started off pretty good untill Sean Glennon had his manhood taken away and was taken from behind by Phillip Wheeler...Glennon fumbled and GT took it back for a touchdown. Woo hoo 31-13 GT. They traded punts for awhile untill GTECH decided they would just go ahead and score again...they made it 38-13 thanks to a TD run or a fumble recovery for TD by Tashard Choice..whatever they called it, its another fucking touchdown not for us.

We ended up scoring two more TD's to make it look half-way decent, a 1 yard TD run by Elan Lewis and a 21 yard TD catch for Eddie Royal.

FINAL SCORE: Fucking GT-38 Miserable VT-27


Thank you Georgia Tech...thank you for runing my fucking day. The fucking game isn't even over but its fucking 38-13 in the 3rd quarter. I predicted a fucking VT win 21-10...boy was I wrong. It's not like I base these scores on anything....I just come up with them on the spot....but for fuck's sake....this is fucking ridiculous....Fucking Sean Glennon fumbled twice already in the second half, one went for a touchdown.

Oh and great just turned over to ESPN2 and Miami is winning..SHIT I hate GT....they can suck my................................................................FCC.

#11 Virginia Tech vs. #24 Georgia Tech

Well since I guess were done destroying "cupcakes", (right Davey?) it's time to play a really good team. The Hokies have been getting attention and are expected by many, even Davey, a canes' fan, to win the ACC championship. While the yellow jackets were only expected to well, send a top 3 player to the NFL draft. (Calvin Johnson)

GT played a great game against at the time the #2 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish. This game was a unexpected defenseive struggle, but in the end the Fighting Irish were able to pull out a 14-10 win. After that game the Yellow Jackets came back with impressive wins against not so impressive teams. First GT beat Samford 38-6, then they beat Troy(who actually has a pretty good "D") 35-20. Last Thursday Georgia Tech played their first ACC opponet of the year. They absolutely destroyed Virginia 24-7. I know I know, you look at the score and say "It's only a 17 point loss,surely that isn't enough to use the words 'absolutely destroyed" but let me through a couple on numbers at ya. I won't really throw them..cause that's how accidents happen. Safety First!!!!

Total Yards- GT-374 UV-181
Total Rush Yards- GT-144 UV- 66
Total Pass Yards- GT- 230 UV-115
I think you get what i'm talking about. Right??

Georgia Tech probaly isn't our biggest fans....expecially since we kinda put a hurtin' on them last year. We were able to get outta there with a 51-7 win. I know, talk about a nail bitter.

This is from Sports Illustrated

Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC)
No. 24 Georgia Tech (3-1) at No. 11 Virginia Tech (4-0)
Oh, cruel ACC scheduling gods. For some reason you've seen fit to send the Yellow Jackets to Blacksburg in consecutive seasons. Last year's trip resulted in a 51-7 Hokies demolition. What could possibly cause a 44-point turnaround in one year's time? I have no idea. Just go with it.
Georgia Tech 19, Virginia Tech 17

Well sir, I will certainly not "just go with it". In fact I believe I will have to disagree with your predicted score. don't even understand your own reasons for picking Georgia Tech winning(with they won't)

Ok, there has been a little talk about this GT defense. I don't understand why!! All they do is blitz, that's it...just blitz, no speacial formations or anything, just send anywhere from 4 to 7 guys. That's their defense....real hard to stop that huh? Oh, no here comes an extra guy that we were soooo not expecting, lets leave an extra blocker, um, I don't bout a fucking runningback....NOTRE DAME!!!!

Ok.....predicted score 21-10 VT....bitches!!!

Michael Bush is a still a BEAST!!!!

After breaking his right leg in Louisville's season opener, Michael Bush says he is in no rush to decided whether he will enter his name in the 2007 NFL draft or return for another year at Louisville. He could either take a redshirt or a medical redshirt and he would be eligible to play again as a redshirt senior.

"I just want to get my rehab done and see how strongly I rebound when the time comes," said Bush.

Bush had a titanium rod inserted into the leg and two screws to hold th rod in place during his surgery on Sept. 4. He is still walking with crutches and he says his recovery time could take between five to six months, meaning he would be 100% in time for April's draft.

"I should be 100 percent or even stronger," Bush said. "To me I'm glad it's not a knee or an ACL or that I messed up my ankle. To me it's just a broken leg. It happens all the time."

When Bush took a handoff from quarterback Brian Brohm on the second play of the third quarter and ran to his left, he was tackled from behind by Kentucky linebacker Wesley Woodyard. Bush said he tried to get up following the tackle, and the he looked down at his right leg and saw his foot pointing in the wrong direction.

"I remember hearing something snapping like a stick,"he said. "The trainers came over to me and were like 'What's wrong?" and I said, 'Look at my leg."

This guy amazes me, not just because of the way he plays the game, but his reaction and quotes after suffering a season ending injury.

Wesley Woodyard called Bush to apologize, but Bush said he doesn't blame him for the injury, saying it was just part of the game. Bush received hundreds of calls and messages of support from well-wishers since the injury, of the hundreds a couple stood out including comedian Bill Cosby and former Louisville wide receiver Deion Branch.

Bush said he's only gotten upset once since the injury, tearing up a little bit while watching the Cardinals play Temple on Sept. 9.

"It's jut part of the healing process,"he said.

Instead of crying and pouting, he's chosen to become a "cheerleader" and spiritual leader for the #8 Cardinals. He also spoke to his teammates during halftime of the team's thrashing of Miami 31-7. That explains why the "U" lost huh Davey. He's been told by his doctors that he may be able to lead his Cards out onto the Papa John's Stadium turf when they host rival West Virginia on Nov. 2.

Well thats just great....

VA Tech has suspended two starters for the Georgia Tech game on Saturday. Defensive end Chris Ellis and split end Josh Morgan have been suspended for violating team rules.

Ellis and Morgan were suspended by coach Frank Beamer on Monday after both players were arrested early Sunday morning following an altercation outside a downtown nightclub in Blacksburg, VA.

Late Sunday morning around 1:50 a.m. Lt. Joe Davis of the Blacksburg Police Department said officers from his department responded to calls of a "large crowd forming and advised a fight was about to "break out".

Josh Morgan didn't follow officers' orders to leave the area and was eventually arrested on a Class 1 misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.

Chris Ellis was also arrested and charged with misdemeanor obstructing an officer after he failded to leave the scene after Morgan was arrested.

"They went to place Morgan under arrest and he did not follow their orders or commands," Davis said.

"Ellis went to try to get involved with the officers who were arresting Morgan and didn't follow their commands and was taken into custody. It was pretty cut and dry."

Davis also said that neither player was jailed and both were released on perosnal recognizance bonds.

Don't worry i'm sure we can replace one of the Hokies' most disruptive defensive linemen. I mean his 12 tackles and 1 sack can be problem...I hope.

Morgan on the other hand, is Tech's second-leading receiver, with 10 grabs for 161 yards and 2 TDs. He also has blocked 2 punts, including 1 for a safety last week against Cincinnati. We sure could use both against GT. Georgia Tech gave Notre Dame all they could handle and last week the put a beating on conference rival, Virgina.

Ok, I would really like to see VT add a rule that these players ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE A PERSONAL LIFE!!!! Obvioulsy they can't handle a night out on the town without getting into a fight or pulling a gun outside of a McDonalds, MARCUS...

Owens' update.

Ok, Terrell Owens addressed the media just minutes ago. He denied the rumors and reports that he attempted suicide. He also said that the 911 call by his publicist's was just a case of misunderstanding.

"There was no suicide attempt," Owens said. "The rumor of me taking 35 pills is absurd," said Owens, who said the rest of the pills that were in the empty bottle were seprated and in a differant drawer.

Owens also said Kim Etheridge made the 911 call out of a fear for his well being.

"I really wasn't as coherent as they thought I was," Owens said when asked if he told fire rescue workers he tried to hurt himself.

Also, Etheridge denied that she tried to pry two pills out of T.O.'s mouth, she said that the police reports are all false.

Terrell Owens attended practice while the media thought he was preparing to address them. He played catch for awhile with Cowboys starting quarterback, Drew Bledsoe and even with back-up Tony Romo. When asked if he planned to practice tomorrow, he said"I plan to". He also said that he feels very capable to play on Sunday.

More information will become available when the 911 tape is released.

Owens hospitalized for attempted suicide.

On Tuesday night the last thing I saw before I went to bed was "Breaking News", "Terrell Owens hospitalized", "Reasons unknown at this time". My first immediate reaction was it was involving his surgically repaired hand.

But when I wake up today and turn on my t.v. I see another segment on ESPN, "Breaking News", "Terrell Owens hospitalized for attempted suicide". I was and still am in complete shock.

It is reported that Terrell attepted suicide by overdosing on perscription pain medication. The persctioption was for 40 pills, but he had only taken 5, but when a friend, who is not identified in the police report, "noticed that [his] prescription pain medication was empty and observed[Owens] putting two pills in his mouth," the police report said.

Owens' friend attempted to pry the two pills out of his mouth with her fingers. When fire rescue workers arrived they asked Terrell "if he was attempting to harm himself, at the time [he] stated, 'Yes."

KTVT- TV in Dallas reported that the women that found Owens is beleived to be his publicist Kim Etheridge. Etheridge called police at 7:51 p.m. to report a suicide attempt. KTVT-TV reported that Owens ingested at least 35 pills.

Terrell Owens was released from the hospital early this morning.

When the story was first broke, it was reported that he was taken to an emergency late Tuesday night. A source close to Owens told ESPN's Ed Werder early Wednesday morning that he was suffering an adverse reaction to painkillers taken for treatmen of his fractured hand.

On an online edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Etheridge said "this is not serieous". This was said before news of the attempted suicide was released. Doctors treating the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver were trying to induce vomiting when he arrived at Baylor Medical Center, according to a television report.

The Dallas Cowboys have called a 2:30 p.m. ET news conference. I will have more information after the conference.

This is the offical Polic Report.

Well now there is more conflicting information out. T.O.'s publicist, Kim Etheridge, has released a statement to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the The Dallas Morning News saying that the reports of an attempted suicide were false. She also told them that Owens is "fine."

Etheridge said she called 911 because Owens was groggy and lethargic. After taking some supplements "it kicked in a reaction" with the painkilles that he was already taking, she told the Star- Telegram.

"Here's a person whose body is so clean, it really had a negative reaction to the medication and supplements he was taking," Etheridge told The Morning News. "Thank goodness someone was there to call an ambulance."

Owens was released from the hospital Wednesday morning and was seen giving the "thumbs up" to reporters. He made no comment as he got into a waiting SUV and was driven away.

Dallas Police Lt. Rick Watson said he could only confirm that paramedics called police to say they were taking Owens to the hospital. He also said he would be "limited" to what he said due to privacy laws. He also stated that the police would have no more detail because no laws were broken. Attempted suicide is not a crime in Texas.

ESPN's own Michael Irvin said that Owens denied he attempted suicide and said he was rushed to the hospital as a result of an adverse reaction to medication. And a source close to Owens told's Michael A. Smith that Owens wasn't attempting suicide.

Shortley after Irvin's comments, another former Cowboy and current NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders said he had spoke with Owens shortley after being released from Baylor Hospital and that Owens was in good spirits.

"The fact that it has been reported a suicide attempt, he's laughed at that notion. It was a case that medication that was taken wasn't accepted well in his system with the other vitamins he's on,"Sanders said.

Cowboys Head Coach Bill Parcells said he didn't know any more details, other than it was "apparently an unfortunate set of circumstances." He said it was way too early to tell whether Owens might be able to practice this week or even play this coming Sunday against Tennessee.

"I don't have enogh information yet," he said. "I wouldn't [decide] anything right now. I'm talking with a good deal of ignorance on the subject."

After reportes kept asking the same questions that Parcells had previously already answered that he had no information on, he walked out of the room and said he was "When I find out what the hell is going on, you will know then, I'm not getting interrogated for no reason."

Another update will be posted after the conference.

A cane and a HOKIE working together....???(thats right HOKIE is in caps, cause they are so much better than those stupid canes, shit i think the title

....Fine since my title was rudely interrupted due to no more "space" i will go ahead with the post....

Davey and me decided to start up a new sports blog together. Since he's a Cane's fan and i'm am(of course) a Hokie fan, the blog will mostly consist of lots of horrible puns and cheap shots at each other, and of course sports banter that will have anyone that has the misfortune of sitting through it all and reading it to say"what the fuck are they talking about". Anyway the blog is titled "Dumb and Irrelivant Sports Banter", because that's basically what we do. Oh well, stop by if you want to see two idiots attempt to sound somewhat smart and be completely biased to our teams.

#11 Virginia Tech 29 Cincinnati 13 F

Ok this game at times made me want to cry and even think about committing felonies, it also made me scream inappropriate obscenities that would make Samuel L. Jackson blush. Then when things went good for the Hokies I giggled like a 12 year old school girl, and when Branden Ore ran for long gains for 14,23,11,46 and a 71 yard run(called back) I even questioned my sexualality a little bit. But with all that aside, this was a tough game in the first half. Our offense couldn't get anything going on the ground or throught the air. In fact at the half we had a total of -8 rushing yards as a team.

But I guess the Hokies took to heart what Frank Beamer said at halftime(I don't know for sure if he said anything, i just assumed he did) because Tech came out on fire. Sean Glennon connected with Justin Harper for a 47 yard TD pass in the first 90 seconds of the second half and gave us the lead. 12-10

For awhile in the 3rd quarter it was a seesaw game, when it came to scoring. VT scored a TD and went up by 2, then Cincy kicked a FG and they went up by 1, then it was all VT from that point on. They scored 17 unanswered points and pulled out a tough win, 29-13.

Like I said earlier, Branden Ore was huge in this game. He carried the rock 26 times and had 163 yards 1 TD and he had 1 rec for 34 yds. At the break Ore only had a total of 18 yards but the 145 he put up in the second half definitely gave him honors as the game MVP. Sean Glennon was pretty good today aswell. He went 11/23 190 yds 1 TD and 1 INT. He's really got to stop throwing picks. He was sacked 3 times for -22, which hurt our total rushing yards as a team, but thats ok.

Way back in the 1st,Cincinnati lined up for their first punt deep in VaTech territory, when Josh Morgan blasted through the line and blocked Tech's 4th kick on the season.(3 all of last year) The blocked punt resulted in a Hokie safety.

The game was wrapped up thanks to Victor "Macho" Harris picking off two straight balls thrown by UC's qb, Dustin Grutza, including returning 1 of those interceptions for a 72 yard TD run.

Anyway, this was a tough but a good win. We will have a huge test against a very good Georgia Tech team next week.

#11 Virginia Tech vs Cincinnati

The Hokies have only played the Bearcats 7 times. But this will be the first match-up in 11 years. Cincinnati won the last game 16-0 in Blacksburg way back in 1995. Cincy also is winning the all-time series, 4-3(about to be 4-4.)

Sean Glennon had a huge game last week against the Blue Devils. He went 15/25 301 yds and 2 TDs. The Hokies "D" was great, they recorded 8 sacks and held Duke to just 139 yards. VTECH now has the #1 scoring defefnse, allowing just 3.33 ppg.

Cincinnati is on a two game losing streak, including a loss to #1 Ohio State las week 37-7. The Bearcats leading rusher is Bradley Glatthaar. He has a total of 83 yards and 2 TDs. There starting QB, Dustin Grutza, is 48/72 552 yards 3 TDs 4 INTs. Their defense isn't doing much better, they are currently ranked #72 in the nation in total defense, and they are allowing 23.3 ppg.

I am going to go off on a limb and say my Hokies will win.....and it probaly won't pretty.

Prediction: VT-35 UC-3....what the hell i'll go ahead and give em' three.

Clemson and NCAA set up special trust fund for a very special family.

This is a great story that involves a Clemson football player. Freshman cornerback Ray Ray McElarathbey has taken over temporary custody of his 11-year old brother, Fahmarr.

He took over custody of him because of their mother's continuing drug addiction. Ray Ray said that he didn't want his younger brother to return to a foster home. The two brothers have been living together in an apartment near Clemson's campus on Ray Ray's scholarship.

NCAA bended their own rules and granted Clemson a waiver last week that allowed them to set up a special trust fund called "Fahmarr McElrathbey Trust Fund". This trust fund will help provide food and clothing and it allows family members of Clemson football coaches and administrators to provide Fahmarr transportation.

Like I said earlier, this is a great story. The full story can be read by clicking on the link above.

It has been confirmed. Chargers get their guy.

The San Diego Chargers have agreed to send an undisclosed draft pick to the Tennesse Titans for disgruntled quarterback Billy Volek. Like I said this deal is just a little insurance for Chargers' starter Phillip Rivers. This deal makes sense for both teams. Chargers wanted a veteran QB to help Rivers picked up a solid back-up in Volek. And it makes sense for the Titans because obviously they have no attention in starting Volek so why not at least pick up something for him? The draft pick will most likely be a 5th or 6th round pick in the 2007 draft. The Chargers offered a 6th round pick but the Titans have been asking for a 5th, so we'll see.

Derrek Lee will miss the rest of the season to be with his family

Derrek Lee had missed the last two games before he said on Sunday he was taking a leave of absence to be with his wife and his daughter.

"My daughter's lost some vision in one eye and we'll find out more at a later time; we have to go through some more tests," Lee said in a statement. "Right now we just ask for everyone's prayers. We need a miracle, we need your prayers. We need everyone to believe she's going to be OK."

Jada is the only child for Derrek and his wife, Christina. Lee fought back tears as he publicly addressed the media and then he spoke to the team in a private meeting in the Cubs' clubhouse.

"Some of us have known for a few days," Cubs manager Dusty Baker said. "But you can't say anything if he didn't want to say anything. Quite frankly, I'm surprised he said anything."

Lee who turned 31 this month and won the 2005 NL batting title, has only played in 49 games this season, even though he hasn't played much he has been able to hit .287 with 8 homeruns and 30 RBI. You may remember, Lee broke his left wrist on April 19 and he missed 58 games before returning to the team in late June. He then went on the DL again later the next month due to inflammation in the same wrist and it caused him to miss another mont.

"You break your wrist and you think that's a big deal," Lee said. "Then something like this happens and it kind of slaps you in the face of what really matters."

My prayers are with you and your family and I hope your daughter has a speedy recovery.

It looks like the Chargers will be adding another QB.

The San Diego Chargers are about to ink a deal with the Tennessee Titans, that could be finalized as soon as Tuesday. The deal would send unhappy quarterback Billy Volek to the Chargers for a 2007 6th round draft pick. The Titans have been asking for a 5th round pick for a couple of weeks now, but the teams agreed to wait to finalize anything until they played each other Sunday.

The only thing complicating the negotiations is Billy Volek's no-trade clause. That means even though Volek has asked to be traded and even though he's been demoted to third string behind Kerry Collins and 1st round draft pick Vince Young, he still holds the power whether he is dealt and where.

The Chargers currently only have two quarterbacks on their roster, starter Phillip Rivers and rookie Charlie Whitehurst. They have said that they would like to add an experienced backup and they would like to keep three quarterbacks on their roster.

Roy Williams leaves me speachless.....

Well before the Lion's game against the Chicago Bears, Lions' 1st round wide receiver Roy Williams decided to pump up his team, or get some extra attention(I can't figure out which) by boldly stating that the winless Detroit Lions, the same Lions that lost an offensive shootout to the Seattle Seahawks the previous week 9-6, which he stated "it's stupid that we didn't score 40 on them" would beat the Chicago Bears. Ok, i'm all for trying to get my team pumped but when it comes to guaranteeing wins when you have nothing to back it up, I don't get it, I mean it's not like the Lions are powerhouses in the NFC North...shit they are probaly worse than the Packers. Anyways after it was all said and done the Bears edged the Lions out with a narrow win....34-7!!!!

Roy Williams is obviously not concerned with getting wins, he is more concerned with getting camera time and attention. Which he got after making his first catch. After making his first of 6 receptions on Sunday, Williams Celebrated even though his "team" was losing. This upset the Bears crowd and aparently had Detroit Free Press Columist Mitch Albom confused.

Wen Albom asked Williams why he celebrated a reception with his team already trailing by two scores, Williams responded, "I celebrate first downs all the time. I'm not gonna stop that. I'm an exciting player. If I do something exciting(oh yeah, there is nothing more exciting then getting a meaningless first down), I'm gonna show my actions."

Albom responded, "But you were losing, 10-0."

"What does that mean?....That means nothing to me. The score means nothing," Williams stated.

Even after the 34-7 loss Williams said he still didn't regret making the guarantee.

"No, because everyone believes what I said," he told Albom.

Then after that he made another guarantee.

"You can all run this, We will the next game," he told reporters. "I don't care who it's against.(it's Green Bay by the way) We will win the game as long as we do what we're supposed to do. That's my comment for the whole week."

Ok, let me first start off by saying....WHAT THE HELL?? I was a big fan of Roy Williams, but this is a team sport. You can't win by yourself and making coments like the score isn't important doesn't really put me in the mindset of a winner. The last time I checked it takes points in order to win, with that said...Roy, the score is important!

David Pollack out for the season with broken neck

During the first quarter of a 34-17 win against the Cleveland Browns, Bengals linebacker David Pollack was taken off the field on a stretcher with an apparent neck injury. It was later confirmed to be a broken C6 vertebrae and he will be missing the rest of the season. After leaving the game, Pollack was taken to a local hospital and he was put in a protective halo brace. Coach Marvin Lewis said that the injury is not career-threatening, and they expect him to make a full recovery in time for next season.

Coach Lewis said Pollack's spinal cord wasn't damaged. He has full sensation in his arms and legs, and doctors are hopeful that the halo brace -- which immobilizes the neck -- will allow the injury to heal without surgery.

David Pollack was drafted in the first round of the 2005 draft. He was the 17th overall pick. He moved over to outside linebacker after being drafted as a defensive end out of Georigia. In 2005 he played in all but 4 games as a back-up to Landon Johnson. He was able to rack up 28 tackles, 5 sacks and 6 recovered fumbles. And in the playoffs he made 8 tackles and 1 sack.

#14 Virginia Tech 36 Duke 0

Well my prediction was a little off, but I did get the shutout right, which is the most important score. Virginia Tech completly dominated the entire game. Both of Duke's defense and offense were overmatched and didn't start to get yards untill the back-ups were brought in once again. The total yards were VT- 421 Duke- 139.

Sean Glennon was absolutely great! He went 15/25 301 yds and 2 TDs. I said before the game that he needed to step up and that is just what he did. The Hokies only ran the ball with Branden Ore 15 times for 64 yds and a TD. So Glennon put the offense on his back and ran with it....well actually he passed with it but you know what i'm talking about. Like I said earlier Glennon threw 2 TDs, 1 was a 25 yard pass to Josh Morgan and the other was a 17 yader to Sam Wheeler.

On the ground today we had a total of 105 yards. Most of those were by Ore in the first half, Branden didn't play too much in the second half, the Hokies passed mostly, but when they did run it, the ball went to Elan Lewis and Kenny Lewis Jr. Elan had a very rough game, he carried it 6 times for just 2 yards. Kenny Lewis made his Hokie debut today and he looked very good. He was a highley touted baseball player, in fact he was in the Cincinnati Reds' organization for awhile but he said his dream was to play for Virginia Tech and he joined the team this year. He rushed the ball 6 times for 16 yards and a touchdown.

In the first quarter the great return skills of Eddie Royal shined bright when he returned a punt on two hops to the house for a 58 yard touchdown.

Of course I have to comment on the mistakes that were made. Once again there wasn't many but there was some. The first problem we had, was penalties. In all we had 7/70 yds. Most of which came on 3 15-yard roughing the passers. And 1 of those roughing the passers resulted in a concussion for Thaddeus Lewis. The other problem was a interception by Glennon. The pick didn't hurt us, but I would prefer to see no interceptions.

Next week in comes Cincy, who in the first quarter had the lead against the #1 ranked Ohio State, but in the end OSU routed them in a 37-7 win.

#14 Virginia Tech vs Duke

Well to be honest, Duke might actually have a chance in hell if this was basketball, but since it's football and J.J. Redick and Sean Dockery(to hit a last second 50 ft 3-pointer to beat the hokies last year.....bastard) aren't suiting up, I think it's pretty safe to say the outcome of the game will be just like last year. Which happened to be a 45-0 rout.

The Devils were shutout by 1-AA Richmond in week 1... 13-0, and then they actually played decently against Wake Forest last week, but in the end they lost a heartbreaker 14-13. They can't run the ball, in fact their leading rusher is Requan Boyette and he has an amazing 37 yards....ON THE SEASON!!! They do have a QB that isnt that bad, i guess....Thaddeus Lewis is a freshman and so far on the season 36/56 453 yards 1 TD. But it won't be enough to stop the Hokie's defense.

The Hokies are coming off of a good win against North Carolina, 35-10. Defense was very impressive, but the passing game was questionable. Sean Glennon didn't look as good as he did against Northeastern. Against UNC he was 10/17 for 66 yards. He is going to have to step it up if the Hokies hope to(and they will)win the ACC.

Predicted score VT- 49 DUKE- 0 f

Packers and Texans swap young backs

On Wednesday night the Green Bay Packers sent Samkon Gado to the Houston Texans for Vernand Morency.

Samkon Gado, who only started 2 games in four years at 1-AA Liberty,was handed the starting job last year for the pack, when Ahman Green and Najeh Davenport suffered season-ending injuries. He was great in his short time as the starter. He played in eight games, including five starts, he gained 582 yards on the ground on just 142 carries. He also added 6 touchdowns. Coach Gary Kubiak has said he plans to use Gado for short yardarge and maybe even more. "I thik he's already proven that he can be an every down back," said the Texan's general manager Rick Smith. "He's a kid that is a power type back with good speed and balance and agility. So to put him in this offense will be an asset to us. " I personally like Samkon Gado, i thought he did a great job for the packers last year and he will ok in Houston. I wonder if the Texans are still saying the right choice was Mario Williams. especially since Reggie Bush gained 141 total yards in a WIN. Something the Texans don't know to much about.

Updated Heisman Picture

1. Troy Smith QB(OSU) 12/26 269 yds 2 TDs

Troy Smith looked very good against the #2 ranked Texas Longhorns. He lead his Buckeyes to a 24-7 win. Smith's favorite target in this game was Anthony Gonzalez(8 rec 142 yds 1 TD) Troy Smith showed me that he is the front runner for the Heisman so far.

Next Opponet: Cincinnati (9/16)

2. Adrian Peterson RB(OU) 32 car 165 yds 2 TDs , 2 rec 6 yds(171 total)

After his own coaching staff blasted him for not giving his all after gaining over 200 yards against UAB, Peterson came back with 165 yards on the ground against Washington. Maybe that will please Oklahoma.

Next Opponet: #18 Oregon(9/16)

3. Brady Quinn QB(ND) 25/36 287 yds 3 TDs , 8 car 6 yds(293 total)

Brady Quinn was sub-par against the relentless defense of Georgia Tech in week 1. But he looked very good against Penn State this week. He had no passing touchdowns vs GT, but he came back with 3 big TDs in South Bend on Saturday.

Next Opponet: #11 Michigan(9/16)

4. Brian Brohm QB(LOU) 16/29 307 yds 1 TDs 1 INT

5. Ted Ginn Jr. WR(OSU) 5 rec 97 yds 1 TD, 3 ret 5 yds(102 total)

6. Garrett Wolfe RB(NIU) 24 car 196 yds 2 TDs

Virginia Tech 35 North Carolina 10

In this game the score doesn't do justice to how good the Tech defense was. The Tar Heels didn't really start to rack up passing yards untill the second and third string defense for Virginia Tech was out there. The Hokies were able to block another punt today, if you're counting that makes 3 blocked kicks(2 punts, 1 field goal) so far this year. They only had 3 all of last year.

In the first the hokies didn't look to good and I was very nervous, but my booiii Davey reminded me it was too early to begin to worry.(Which is weird because he's a cane.) And sure enough we had to punt and UNC's Brandon Tate returned the punt 35 yards and they had the ball at the VT 38. After a first down pass to Jesse Holley, The Heels were stopped and they were forced to attempt a 46 yard field goal....Good. UNC leads 3-0. After a fumble by Sean Glennon, both teams traded punts. Then Xavier Adibi(my favorite Hokie) intercepted a Joe Dailey pass and he returned it all the way down to the 1 yard line. The next play Branden Ore pounded it in for the touchdown. Hokies now lead 7-3.

The second quarter the scoring was quite aswell. After a couple of punts and a George Bell fumble, Aaron Rouse intercepted another ball off of Dailey. Then on UNC's next drive, they prepared to punt the ball away but Jason Adjepong and the Hokies had a differant idea. Tech blocked David Wooldridge's punt. With great field position again, Branden Ore found his way to the endzone again. Hokies lead 14-3 at halftime.

In the third quarter there was more punts traded between the teams, and it was looking like it was going to be a low scoring defensive battle, untill Tech got another great field postion at their own 45 yard line. A 3 minute drive Branden Ore rushed for another touchdown, his third of the game. Hokies lead 21-3 at the end of three quarters.

In the fourth quarter, it started off slow once again untill UNC put together a very nice drive behind the arm of Cam Sexton. The drive looked great untill Sexton threw a lazy pass that was picked off by Brandon Hill and returned 70 yards for the touchdown. Hokies lead 28-3. Then Sexton came back and after two straight incomplete passes, Sexton threw another interception to another man named Cam, this one by VT's Cam Chancellor. This lead to another Virginia Tech touchdown, this one a 41 yard connection to 280 pound tight end Greg Boone from Ike Whitaker. Hokies lead 35-3. UNC was able to finally score a touchdown against reserves....that's a great accomplishment for them. It was an 18 yard touchdown for Brooks Foster from Cam Sexton. Hokies still win 35-10.

Once again not many complaints this week. The only one I could really see is our passing game wasn't up to par. Of course we really didn't need it due to Branden Ore's 22 car 111 yds 3 TDs. But if we are going to beat other ACC teams, then the passing game must stay consistant.

#16 Virginia Tech vs North Carolina

North Carolina is coming off a pretty stunning lost to Rutgers 21-16. The Tar Hills gave up 201 yards on the ground to Ray Rice, Rice also had 3 TDs. I expect UNC to play much better this week, but they will still lose BIG!!! If Ray Rice can get 2 c-notes on the ground, then Branden Ore should get more than 54.

In the past two years, the Tar Hills have played the Hokies well....for the first half. In 2004, VTECH got out of Chapel Hill with a 27-24 win. And last year in Blacksburg, the Hokies only had a 6-3 lead at halftime before eventually routing them 30-3. Sean Glennon will look to have another stellar game this week. He went 15/18 222 3 TD and 1 INT aganist Northeastern. The only problem the Hokie's defense had last week was finishing their tackles. Their was alot of missed tackles and broken takles, hopefully that little problem was taken care of in practices this week. I guess we'll see tomorrow.

The game is on ESPN at 12 ET.

Updated Heisman Picture

Let me first start off by saying Michael Bush was having a great game when in the 3rd quarter, a Kentucky defender took him down awkardly and rolled over his right leg. It was obvious that he was hurt bad when ESPN showed a replay it was easy to tell that his leg had completely snapped. It was later confirmed that he had a broken right tibia, and he will be lost for the season. At the time of his injury he currently had 17 car 128 yds 3 TDs. That was just for the first half. Not only does this hurt Louisville's chances for BCS bid, it hurts Bush's first round draft dreams. In this mock draft, they had Michael Bush going number 12. He will sadly but likely fall to maybe a late 1st round or an early 2nd round. Good luck to Michael and his family.

This is the way I see the top 10 Heisman canidates after week 1 of the College Football season.

1. Troy Smith QB(OSU) 18/25 297 yds 3 TDs

2. Kenny Irons RB(AUB) 21 car 184 yds 1 TD, 3 rec 38 yds(222 total yds)

3. Adrian Peterson RB(OU) 24 car 136 yds 1 TD, 1 rec 69 yds(205 total yds)

4. Calvin Johnson WR(GT) 7 rec 110 yds 1 TD

5. Ted Ginn Jr. WR(OSU) 4 rec 123 yds 2 TDs

6. Brian Brohm QB(LOU) 19/31 254 yds 1 TD

7. Garrett Wolfe RB(NIU) 26 car 171 yds, 5 rec 114 yds 1 TD(285 total yds)

8. Brady Quinn QB(ND) 23-38 246 yds, 7 car 8 yds 1 TD

9. Steve Slaton RB(WVU) 33 car 200 yds 2 TD, 1 rec 12 yds(212 yds)

10. Mike Hart RB(MICH) 31 car 146 yds, 1 rec 2 yds(148 yds)

Troy Smith looked very good against Northern Illinois. I decided to put him at #1 because well...I had him at #1 before the game and he didn't do anything that would bring him down. Kenny Irons looked great in his first game against Washington State, he mixed speed with power and got himself over 200 yards. Irons went up from #8 to #2. I dropped three people completely off my list because they didn't perform(except for Bush.) The players that were dropped are Marshawn Lynch, Michael Bush and Dwayne Jarrett. Lynch had 12 car 74 yds and 0 TDs. He had a very difficult time running north and south, because his offensive line was completely over matched by the speedy Tennessee defensive. Jarrett only had 5 catches for 35 yards and 0 TDs. The player that dropped the lowest is Brady Quinn. He didn't have a bad game, but he didn't have a great game. To be considered a Heisman canidate you must have great games. He was hit way too much by the Georgia Tech defense. The three new additions are Garrett Wolfe, Steve Slaton and Mike Hart. Slaton had 200 yards rushing, and in my mind that made him good enough to make it on the list. Garrett Wolfe had an insane game against Ohio State. 285 total yards.

Virginia Tech 38 Northeastern 0

Today is the first college football saturday of the season and it was a great one. The Hokies kicked off their season against a 1-AA Northeastern team.(or as Davey would say Cupcake U.) Virginia Tech came out on fire to begin the game. Northeastern received the ball first and the ball sailed deep into the endzone for a touchback. The Huskies were able to gain 8 yards and a 5 yard penalty before Chris Ellis sacked Anthony Orio for a 14 yard loss. Then two plays later the Huskies were forced to punt. Eddie Royal took the punt all the way back to Northeastern's 34 yard line. In comes Sean Glennon first start and he looked great. He completed his first 2 passes to Eddie Royal for 1 yard and Branden Ore for 26 yards. Then Ore powered his way to a 6 yard touchdown run.
The next Hokie touchdown came after a Brandon Flowers interception. On the very first play after the pick Sean Glennon threw a beautiful 54 yard strike to Josh Morgan. After the successful extra point by Brandon Pace, Northeastren took over and went three and out, as they lined up for their first punt of the day, a stat suddenly popped into my mind...we only had three blocked kicks all of last year and sure enough as soon as I thought that Cory Wade blocked their punt, it was recovered by Kam Chancellor.
After the blocked punt we took over again with excellent field position. Glennon completed a short pass for 3 yards to David Clowney and then we took it to the ground with George Bell and Carlton Weatherford. Bell puched it in from 1 yard and we went up 21-0 in the first.
After a turnover on downs by Northeastern, a punt by the Hokies and another punt by the Huskies, we took over once again this time at our own 37 yard line. After gains of 5 and 6 for Ore, Glennon was intercepted by Louvans Charlot. That would be the only mistake Sean Glennon would make all day. Then later in the 2nd quarter the Hokies turned what appeared would be a simple screen play to Branden Ore into a 55 yard touchdown due to great blocks. At halftime the score was 28-0 Hokies!
The third quater started off kind of slow untill Glennon and the Hokies put together an impressive drive that ended with a 4 yard touchdown pass to Carlton Weatherford. After the VT touchdown, Northeastern put together an impressive drive of their own mostly by Maurice Murray, only to end with another Tech interception, this one by D.J. Parker.
Since the game was well in the hands of the Hokies, Frank Beamer decided to take out the starters and in came the speedy redshirt freshman Ike Whitaker. Whitaker led them to a good drive that ended with a 30 yard field goal by Brandon Pace. After another three and out for the Huskies, the Hokies once again started a short field drive that ended with a rare blocked field goal by Northeastern. For the final drive of the game for Northeastern, they ran the ball 10 times and only passing 4 times, they were unable to get into the endzone against the 2nd and 3rd string defense of the Hokies, so they set up for a field goal attempt. With only 38 seconds remaining in the game, Virginia Tech blocked the 42 yard attempt, this one by Kory Robertson.
It was a very good win and a good start to the 2006 season. But there is some areas that i'm a little displeased with. Branden Ore only had 11 carries for 55 yards 1 td. I wish he would've gotten some more carries, but he likely will against North Carolina next weekend. The other area is takling. There was alot of broken takles in this game by the Hokies. That will be tended to in practices later next week for sure.

My 2nd Draft

Well earlier today I entered in my second fantasy football draft. I was surprised to see that I had the #1 pick, although there was only 6 other players. After my first draft a couple of weeks ago was pretty much a wash, me and my boiii Davey decided to enter together. Well anyways, I was on the clock with a very tough decision to make. Who should I take #1? I had it down to three lucky candidates, Shaun Alexander, ladainian tomlinson and Larry Johnson. I was reluctant to take LJ, due to the losses of Willie Roaf and Tony Richardson, I didn't really have a reason not to take LT, but I didn't take him either, drumrolls please, my number 1 pick was Shaun Alexander. I am a little worried about the loss of Steve Hutchinson but I couldn't pass up the 1,800+ yards and the 28 total TDs. My whole goal of this draft was to make smart picks that would help me throughout the whole season, but that was thrown out of the window as soon as I was on the clock. I was able to pick up two of the best defenses. Why? I like to have a choice of which defense I send out, and if need be I can use one of them for trade bait. Not only that I am projected to lose every game! Oh, well I guess I can chalk this up to a learning experience. Anyways here is my team, and I still can't see why I suck so bad.
