Reportedly the Georgia Tech athletics department is already reporting in the Atlanta area that the 2012 Techmo Bowl will take place in Blacksburg on Labor Day as the showcase ACC matchup of the opening weekend.
This assures us of two things. First, that we will play Austin Peay as our second game of the season if we can't tweak the schedule to get a bye in week two. Second, Bud Foster is going to destroy Paul Johnson having all summer and fall practice to prepare for the flexbone and a fully healthy defense.
Before anyone even brings up parallels to 2010 Boise State, remember that this would be a home game with no travel time involved, and Austin Peay is much, much worse than James Madison.
FBS Mission Statement:
We at FBS believe that offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring bears the largest share of the blame for years of sub-par output from some of the most talented players ever to set foot on Worsham Field. We believe the main objective of the VT football program - a national championship - will escape us as long as Stinespring is making the calls. We therefore advocate the improvement of our football program through the replacement of our offensive coordinator.
