ACC & CAA preview, week nine

A PERFECT RECORD. See, this is how it’s done guys. Coming off my worst week of the season I put together my first 5-0 week. Let’s see if I can keep it up, or suffer the dreaded “emotional letdown.”

A PERFECT RECORD. See, this is how it’s done guys. Coming off my worst week of the season I put together my first 5-0 week (30-10 on the season, NBD). Confession: I would have picked Virginia to lose to Miami, but since they played yesterday it won’t go on my record! Ha! TAKE THAT.

Hokies vs. Duke

This one was pretty straight forward for the Hokies. In what’s developing into a pattern, Tech started off slow, made some adjustments, and proceeded to dominate from the quarterback position.

Another developing pattern for the Hokies: losing at least one starting defensive player per game. This week’s victim was Bruce Taylor–oh, just Tech’s leading tackler for the last infinity games. Georgia Tech continues to loom and terrify (and so does the UVA game? Maybe? Did you guys see that finish last night?).

David Wilson continues to have an incredibly successful season. He’s currently 4th in the nation for rushing yards per game and poised to move up. He’s the only player to rush for over 1,000 yards at this point in the season. And Pitt’s Ray Graham, the only BCS-level running back above Wilson, is out for the season with a knee injury. If Wilson keeps it up, and the Hokies keep winning, there will be some National Award Chatter for the guy.

This week the Hokies face Duke, which I guess is throwing the ball around, or something? While Duke is much improved from the years of three wins in as many seasons, this season they’ve only notched wins again Boston College, FIU, and Tulane. Hokies win and hopefully don’t lose another handful of defensive players.

Richmond vs. Massachusetts

Last night I watched former Spider head coach Mike London, somehow, put together a win over Miami. Man, how much would Richmond love to have that guy back? Coach Lineburg is certainly doing the best he can given the extenuating circumstances, but unfortunately I don’t think it will be enough to take down the Minutemen. But it’ll be close!

JMU vs. Old Dominion

CLASH OF THE TITANS. Like I said a couple of weeks ago, I really don’t think ODU has gotten into the meat of their schedule until this very moment. JMU would be undefeated in the CAA except for an insane overtime loss to Maine. ODU has already lost to both Delaware and Towson. Go Dukes!
