Sunday, September 04, 2005Distractions Distractions (VT/NCSU)
Andre Woodson has great potential and Kentucky might be able to come out of the woodwork and give a couple of teams a scare, but overall they don't have much on defense to be taken seriously as a competitor.
Louisville needs to shore up its pass defense and defense in general. Offensively they are terrific, but defensively they got lazy and it showed.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) Marcus Vick is a better passer than his brother. If Mike Vick had Marcus' passing ability, he'd be the perfect QB in today's NFL.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) This N.C. State defensive line is as good as advertised. They are big and fast.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) RE: Marcus' passing skills. I would like to see the Hokies call more plays that allow him to pass over the middle of the field.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) Vick finally shows those ridiculous family skills on a crucial third and 10, he was trapped and somehow gained 20 yards.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) Fourth and inches at the 11. I am guessing Tech will go and left Vick keep it.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) I'm right again! Easy first down pick up.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 10) The Wolfpack defense strikes again, HUGE sack on 2nd and goal. And on 3rd and goal the QB draw nets short yardage.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 13) We're even again. This is too good for an early season matchup.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 13) Ummm Blackman, moves like that will get you a permanent spot on the bench.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 13) Second and 10 from the half-yard line and a sneak gets a few more inches. No clue what I'd call here.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 13) Mike Imoh's major is apparel....Eh?
-- (NCSU 13, VT 13) Ooooo, Blackman REALLY blew it...His mistake will cost three points AT least.
-- (NCSU 13, VT 13) Vick shows the touch and throws a floater to Clowney for a touchdown on a third and long. Great patience in the face of the blitz.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) And the momentum has switched. Meanwhile my best friend and I are thinking of new majors for Imoh. So far we have 'Crafts', 'Pamphlets', and 'Piping'
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) More Imoh Majors: Lateral Landscaping, Fertilizing, Internet Search Engines (ISE) and Food Digestion.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) That doesn't look like a fumble to me. I believe replay will prove its worth again.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) And replay works again.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) The Wolfpack need a nice punt here and a strong, quick defensive stand.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) GREAT CALL!!! What a fake!
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) There's something about the Wolfpack offense I don't like...I guess I think they should let Davis go downfield a little more.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 13) Fourth and a little over one. I'd take the field goal. And they did.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) I don't expect an onside kick.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) I'm convinced every team has one dominating run-oriented drive in them a game, is this going be Virginia Tech's?
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) Wolfpack has 11 penalties for 100 yards...Oof.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) This is a bad spot. Imoh got the first down. It'll be 4th and very short. Not field goal range. I believe he'll go with Vick.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) He does and it was too easy. The QB sneak is almost indefensible.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) With three minutes left, N.C. State needs to think about using their timeouts soon.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) Big stop by the Wolfpack and a long field goal at about 45 yards.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) Oh no, the Wolfpack are going to get hosed on this call here.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) Long field goal with 46 seconds...Tick tock tick tock, they are going to punt instead of the field goal. Very smart move.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) N.C. State needs to something to get to midfield for a hail mary.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) 31-yarder to Tremaine Hall...That'll work and a great job by Hall to get out of bounds.
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) Double hook and ladder...Cute
-- (VT 20, NCSU 16) Davis floats one to the goal line and it's intercepted...Great game and great victory for Virginia Tech.
