Gobbler Country’s Talking Turkey Previews the Wofford Terriers Game

It’s “help the FCS team get some dough” week. And, frankly, it’s a get healthy and snaps for the bench players time. This is the first time that Wofford has come to Blacksburg and the Mike Young connection can’t be dismissed. Join Bryan and John for a quick review and some predictions. GO HOKIES!!!

The Expected Probable Result

There isn’t going to be a whole lot of controversy in this game in regard to playing and winning, anyway. It’s really going to depend on how much the 1s and 2s play and how much the 3s and maybe 4s step up to keep up the momentum.

Wafford is a normally good team from our old conference (1921-1965) back in the day when we were a 1-AA (FCS) team. In years past Wafford has been good, but lately they’ve been struggling on the grid iron. I had thought that maybe we’d play them over at Cassell instead of on Worsham Field, but you never know when the AD’s office is working to schedule the annual FCS opponent.

It’s really not going to be an outcome in doubt, only the scale will be at issue. It is going to be a measure of what the coaching staff wants to accomplish training wise for a live scrimmage. We’ll cover that in the poll instead of the win/loss thing.

Announcing and Relaying

So, we always go over the news clips before jumping into the podcast so what’s up this week?

The Number 25 Goes to Peter Moore

Moore’s magic foot pinned BC back several times and kept them on their side of the field with long fields to drive for points.

Moore Also Got Ray Guy Notices

Virginia Tech is Mentioning Players of the Week

It looks like some more formal in-organization kudos are being handed out, now. There some player of the week mentions handed out by the coaching staff for the Boston College Game.

TyJuan had a pure #LPD day. Kaleb was clutch with critical catches and a TD. William Ross had a golden toe especially for a critical 49 yarder for Tech’s second score. And as mentioned above Peter Moore was the golden leg for punting the Eagles deep into their own territory with long yards needed for points.

It’s White Out/Military Appreciation Day

Of Course, Part of that is always the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets

So, Let’s Talk Turkey

    The Offense still needs lots of sorting, Bowen needs to "stand on it" and put everyone to work.

    Neither prior regime had much use for running up the score. I don’t think I want to see Wofford embarrassed. Start subbing early and don’t run up the score.

    Go out and have some fun. Try some things. Play some guys who might make a difference in the future. Let the future redshirts get the butterflies knocked out.

    Play a normal game plan, work on execution and flow. Take this seriously but keep in mind injury potential. Fix problems before the hard stretch.

We’ll see if the Hokies are out in white, or they just stick to helmets again. Who knows? Maybe something cool will fly over, the weather is supposed to be perfect.

As Always!

GO HOKIES!!!!
