Virginia Tech 37, Tennessee 14: Postgame Stream of Consciousness


  • 10 wins for the sixth consecutive season.
  • A win over God's Conference for the first time since 2002.
  • A win over Tennessee, "Little Brother Syndrome" be damned.
  • First time with back-to-back wins in bowl games.
  • Tons of good feelings heading into 2010.
  • This is also a big win for the ACC over the SEC.
  • The Hokies did everything we said they needed to do to beat the Vols. They dominated both lines of scrimmage, stopped Hardesty and put pressure on Crompton.
  • Ryan Williams, Josh Oglesby and David Wilson all had good games, which means the offensive line was dominant tonight. We ran it right down Monte Kiffin's throat the whole game.
  • Tyrod was efficient, just like he has been for most of the year. Tennessee expected good things to happen for it when Tyrod was forced to throw. Instead, he was able to find open receivers and run for key first downs.
  • Other than the missed tackle that led to Hardesty's touchdown, the defensive tackles were beasts the whole night. Tennessee couldn't find any running room.
  • MLB Barquell Rivers did his part to stop the run as well.
  • CB Jayron Hosley is thiiiiiiis close to being a good cornerback. Not bad for a true freshman, but he still made some mistakes. Not nearly as sold on Cris Hill, though.
  • The drop by Tennessee WR Moore couldn't have been bigger. After that, it was all Hokies.
  • This was the fifth consecutive game that Tech didn't allow a second-half point. You can't give a bigger compliment to this defense.
  • More later. Til then: Wooooooooooooooooo!
