RE: VT Defense
Are most of those seniors so maybe not as big a deal as it seems?

Most yes. And one of them is a true freshman that just got to campus in June. Bud will have them ready for us.

RE: VT Defense
This season may be our best chance against VT for a few seasons. A veteran team combined with a home game should hopefully make it so we are at least competitive. Just gotta hope SW is up for the challenge.

I suspect Harper will have a number of opportunities to race across midfield.

I think you guys are missing the most important aspect of that line of thought. Our D has to stop them in order for Harper to get punt return opportunities.

Now kickoff returns, they kicked off plenty against us last year.

No, I think they're entirely aware that punt returns require a defensive stop.

RE: VT Defense
Brown returns punts. Harper returns kickoffs. My comment, as an aside, was that Harper will likely get a number of opportunities to return a kickoff over the fifty. No D needed (pun intended) to do that.

EDIT. This was intended to inject some humor. I hope our D does a much better job than last year.

My bad. Really thought it started as punt return comments.... I completely forgot about Brown.

RE: VT Defense
That first half against tech last year was the best defense ODU has ever played.

RE: VT Defense
The score doesn't do the defense any justice vs VT last year but I was excited with our D until halftime. The offensive was terrible but defense hung in there. I wanna say it was only a ten point game until about a minute before halftime.

Not sure where else to put this, but the first AP poll just came out and VT is ranked #17. FAU received some votes.

It was a FG with about 5 min left when I was able to finally sit down and turn the game on. Then the wheels fell off.
