2009 Virginia Tech Football: Alabama Quick Thoughts

I'm drunk. I'm exhausted. I haven't seen a box score. I just got back to Winfield's. My everything hurts. Hereeeeeee we go.

  • I feel like I've been to that game a lot of times.
  • Our offensive line is still terrible at pass blocking.
  • Alabama's conditioning won it the game. Our guys were gassed in the fourth quarter. Alabama's were energized.
  • Great game by Alabama's offensive line. McElroy had forever to throw all night.
  • Tyrod Taylor played a smart game and didn't do anything to cost us the game. I thought he played well.
  • Ryan Williams is going to be amazing.
  • I thought Mark Ingram was a good running back coming into tonight's game. I was wrong. He's a great running back.
  • We are the same team we were last season.
  • Looking at the out-of-town scoreboard, I think we still have a chance to win the ACC Coastal.
  • It was a hard-fought, well-played, cleanly-played game by both teams.
  • Our conference is absolutely horrible. Like, really, really horrible. The Southland might be a better conference. I know the CAA is.
  • Alabama fans were great with a couple of notable outliers. The Crimson Tide has a great fan base. I always reserve the right to have my mind changed about a fan base (like with LSU) and it certainly was this weekened. Crimson Tide fans were great. Not always the most football-savvy people, but they were very nice and very gracious before, during and after the game.
  • I got made by the Clubhouse Tailgate. Got an official shirt with a nickname and everything. It was an honor and completely unexpected. Love being around those guys.
  • There was never a point where Alabama was on its heels while on defense. We are still a very easy team to prepare for and Alabama was prepared for everything we threw at them.
  • Uggggggggggggggggh. So frustrating. Again, I feel like I've been to that game a lot of times and my feeling after that game has gone from being sad to angry to now just frustrated.
  • Time for bed. See you Tuesday.
  • Drunken edit at 2:10 a.m. EDT: To Brandon Deaderick: Damn, son. Just. Damn. You are a man among men and you will always have my respect. Wow. I could never imagine anyone playing after going though what you went through.
