We own this state, bitch.
What can I say? The only thing that could even be considered a stone's throw from a criticism is that in the third quarter it took a little longer than I would have liked to go from dominance to total annihilation. I got a little nervous after a couple of three and outs, but then we just effing steamrolled their asses in the fourth quarter. The result?
|I hope Frank gave Chase a game ball. He was our MVP.|
Marcus Davis, well done, young man. I'd like to see these sorts of games more regularly than just bookends on the season. I know what you are capable of every game even if up until now you seemed not to.
David Wilson, welcome back to the endzone. It has missed you.
James Gayle, you naaaaaaasty.
Jack Tyler. Oh. My. GOODNESS. Between him and Kyle Fuller there's not an open field tackle that can't be made. At one point he had a Hoo on the ground slithering away like Jigsaw had just gotten done with him.
|That's a strong safety that just went airborne, folks.|
I've wanted to see a complete game all season, with every phase of the game clicking. The fact that it happened against UVA - and not just UVA, but UVA in a season when they thought they really, legitimately had a shot - makes it so very much sweeter. Since the game ended, my wife has caught me chuckling to myself randomly like three times. Every time she asks what's so funny. Every time I answer, "Thirty-eight, nothing." And she just smiles. Like HokieJayBee said, perpetually the little brother.
Let's put this into perspective. When the UVA redshirt seniors that are leaving this year were freshmen, there still weren't any players on the squad who had ever beaten VT. And despite all the progress that Mike London has made - and let's give credit where credit is due, he's made a TON of progress in Hooville - the gap between the two programs seems to be widening.
