What Does Virginia Tech Needs Against Cincinnati?


The talk about Virginia Tech is the offense lacks identity. I have a proposal for them. They need to be assertive.

They don't need to be blue collar, that's what the defense is known for, lunch pail crew that Foster has built into the DNA of his defense. That is a given.

Not so for the offense. The offense looked confused, timid even, but they did show something last Saturday against Bowling Green. They showed they can be assertive. They showed they could impose their will on the other team's defense as they did against Bowling Green.

Logan Thomas is the unquestioned leader of the offense.

Look to him for leadership. See him trucking defensive end and then do the same on the line, by getting under the defense linemen's pad and pushing them back. Give the running back a hole and watch them blast through the defense. Hear the roar of the fans as the running back make would be tackler miss.

They don't need to be over the top, nor do they need to back down. Sure, toe the line, but do so with assertiveness. Do that and the offense will earn the respect of opponent's defense.

Run the ball with authority. Pass the football with a purpose. Protect Logan Thomas like he is Fort Knox itself. Beat the defensive backs and make them pay for jamming at the line of scrimmage. Stiff arm tacklers.

Be assertive.
