Playing Davis vs. a top 15 team on top of a Bud Foster defense is going to be a test of Davis abilities and if Davis rises from this game with good numbers I think we can kiss his redshirt year goodbye anyways.

I was originally in the don't waste the year camp then i thought about it a little more. He can play 4 games without burning his redshirt. If he plays the next 3 games we will be half way through the season. if we are 0-6 or 1-5 my guess is the staff throws in the towel on the season and shuts him down. If by some bazar miracle we are 2-4 they have a tough choice to make. Unless Tech had the wrong day on their calendar for this week's game and doesn't show, 3-3 isn't worth considering.

I'm sure the intention wasn't to play LaLa, but seeing as how Cox and Strong are/have been hurt. Sadly, I don't expect much from him Saturday. O-lines need continuity and cohesion to be effective. I see none of that with us.

Just so no one can ever call me a complete pessimist, I predict we start to show signs of life ( but still get clobbered). Team starts to rebound this week and makes slow steady progress the rest of the year.

To hit 2-4 we will need to beat both ECU and FAU back to back on the road (with Marshall after that). I just don't see any way. We have a slim chance to beat ECU and virtually no chance against VT, FAU and Marshall. Save LaLas redshirt year. VT is a lost cause, so I'd save him and keep him healthy for ECU. If we win that, its a statement game and something we can hang our hat on and get fired up about. Its a far more important game in many ways than VT.

Nope. That already happened.

Oceana Air Show this weekend. Wonder if any efforts to get a flyby from the Blue Angels or some other aircraft have been exerted.

I'd be surprised if we're even remotely competitive against the Turks.

We're going to get our fart boxes kicked in so hard.....

No, the pessimist here is whoever scheduled this game! A second class program trying to compete with the "big" boys and don't know how.

That word doesn't mean what you think it means.

I just want ODU to look slightly respectable against VT, is that too much to ask from BW.

New Depth chart is out. Looks like Tim Ward will start over Appouh, Joe Joe Headen over Brickhouse. Some of the starters look like they are not yet decided. LG, C, and the other CB spot.

That is good. Brickhouse has really struggled this year.

Probably because nothing is going to change at those positions and the article last week quoting Bobby was just to blow smoke up our asses.

Following the National Anthem on Saturday, the U.S. Navy’s elite “Leap Frogs” Parachute Team, consisting of SEAL’s and Frogmen who volunteer their time, will jump from 6,000 feet to deliver the game ball. Fans should be in their seats by 3:15pm to enjoy the jump team demonstration.
