After a pretty good "weekend" of College Football there are some things that have become apparent to me. For starters there should be no such thing as a Preseason Top 25. I know this is nothing new, but lets look at this a little. If you tell me that VT was a Top 10 team and
Now to the point of my post and
All the media talk regarding WR was about DeAngelo Benton and Emory Blake prior to gameday. Both looked like rookies in game one. Routes were not sharp, but I see that turning around. I am sure they were "wide-eyed" in front of 86 thousand. Besides, Trooper will not stand for that.
Speaking of coaches… how about the fire and animation on the sidelines? I know that we have seen it in the past with Will Muschamp, but I am actually talking about Gene Chizik. I cannot recall a time when Tommy Tuberville got excited/animated over a play. He would just casually stroll up the sidelines with a golf clap. Chizik was quite animated.

My final take will be on the "wildcat." Like it or not the "wildcat" is part of college football now. It seemed like every team used it at some point this weekend. I like having Kodi at that position, but why in the world does he run to the side that Chris Todd is blocking every time. I understand that we need both players in the game, especially to keep the "quick to the line" plan of Gus, but I do not like to see Todd blocking. I know it happened three times, maybe more. I also though the pass play that Kodi threw was a good play call. Too bad the pass was badly overthrown.
