Virginia Tech 45, Central Michigan 21: Morning After Stream of Consciousness

According to the text I got from Joe yesterday, "we finally looked like we thought we'd look," so I'm looking forward to watching the game on DVR and breaking it down more. I'm still depressurizing from the whirlwind of a day I had Saturday and haven't watched the game or read anything on it, so there's not a whole lot to discuss here.

  • First and foremost, we have to ditch the white helmets. They look horrendous no matter what jersey they're paired with. Seriously, I never want to see them again.
  • The first thing that stands out to me in the box score is 0-for-8 on third downs. That has to be some kind of record. I'm interested to see how on earth we managed to not convert a single third down and still scored 45 points.
  • Looks from the stats like Central Michigan did what we thought it would do and stacked the box to stop the run. That allowed Tyrod Taylor to have a pretty big day.
  • More to come later.
