Well after watching that game last night I needed a shower. I was sweating and yelling during the fourth quarter of that game. It was an exciting finish and put the other 2 and a half hours of football I just watched to shame. As my brother put it to me in a face book post, "This game is boring." He was right. It was really boring and unfortunately the type of game that Virginia Tech ends up losing.
Logan Thomas looked really bad through 3 quarters. They say he has Heisman potential. I am sorry but I didn't see it last night that is until the fourth quarter. In the fourth quarter he made some excellent throws. I will give him credit there, in the clutch, Logan can really play some football. He doesn't panic, he just goes out and does what needs to be done.
A lot of people said they didn't see much from the running backs. I disagree. I thought that when they were given the chance they did an awesome job running the ball. I feel like we went away from it for a little while and then came back to it. When we needed the running game it came through for us and we won the game.
The kicking game was overall good. We had a missed field goal and a botched punt but overall it was really good. It won us the game, that's about all I can say.
So these were just some thoughts and feelings about the first game of the year. I hope that we are able to learn from our mistakes and go out there and beat the living tar out of Austin Peay!
Let's Go Hokies!
