The WPL panel on the Boise State-Virginia Tech game-9/2
Thu, 2 Sep 2010|
In dot com and we want to run the table. We know it's not going to be easy that first game of the year right out of the box is the toughest one ball. Because of course were not from an automatic qualifying conference so if you blow one game. The BCS bowl at the end of the season is over if you're Virginia Tech and you blow one game you can even blow another game and you wind up perhaps. In a BCS bowl game so we we have to fight that BCS problem in addition to everything else we're gonna have to fight maybe even humidity who knows. -- Everything like today it's going to be hot that Bob construct the president of Boise State talk about this great matchup Virginia Tech Boise State are still wondering 8 o'clock. Charlotte and he's going to be there wasn't as Hokies errant throws the Washington Post joins us any problem good point widely used it takes to get it like it's -- Asked him personal hard for them to -- keys to play them because they've been put there might -- you. And they're not dead is such a big name where people recognition and put it political all the way across country is going to be a great atmosphere you guys play USC -- -- -- Q -- what that was like but this is a great -- -- Boise State because if they win it there on the way. -- and what you said they need this game without this game that is gonna -- -- the how large -- -- -- -- -- like -- did last year but now the go ahead and beat a team that's likely gonna finish in the top ten country that says you know they never resume -- wears protective. It's kind of -- Good job if you win then and it's it's that the real bad if you don't because like you said. Boise State still doesn't have the prestige of knocking off the team like Alabama or Texas but that probably should have -- in an entertainment. Here but the people -- and under the radar still sport communal last year 21 starters back Kellen Moore quarterback as good as any other country Eric. There's a legitimate team of Virginia Tech coming back with our -- -- backfield this is this is my game right here. I didn't national unity here I really you begin an important -- wins this game. It -- change the whole conversation all narrative of the entire season from a national scope I mean. -- had a non BCS team. Had a chance to play in a national title game all pieces. Aces are placed rallies at the winner all the games in which is a saying a lot about stuff they got everybody back except Kyle Wilson got the quarterback they have. The one point six of their past 26 games so that's why haven't you actually start out high in the polls they have Virginia Tech on the schedule. They just got to win their games but you know we thought could ever be. That a non BCS team are committed to national title game but they got the best chance of anybody think we're gonna see this have to do it now. In the grace -- -- -- Hokies to -- because -- look for breaking down their schedule and in this game it's a pretty clean shot of course your coach and coach we will never admit that -- And it probably you don't want that the players we have to steal the veterans -- quarterback you've got more running backs you what to do with. You know blood costliest -- -- placement because she's gonna do that they have a pretty quick shot to the play Miami on November -- -- -- in Miami. Maybe run the table here. -- the only -- bone bruising schedule there and got that tough ACC game set up a home besides Miami. They're out of car. Conference get there really isn't that tough other than this first one -- said that they but didn't come out this first point with a W and -- go to Miami get a W the rest of the schedule. On paper looks like the. Yeah if we started this -- in this one you can really put that in your cap a blogger here. -- -- -- five right now he's in Boise you don't know I mean. The public as quarterback situation down there though he's Darren Evans is back. Who's in the Al last year he's back -- as if -- doesn't it totally -- Russian and -- Williams comes and and that kid 16100 yards last year and the David Wilson that'll put the redshirt on them. -- -- -- Who's gonna who's going to be the man -- you go by committee here. They're loaded. I mean to pick a running back I mean anybody can be effective back hurting detectives here and got -- -- Taylor at quarterback and when you look at this match -- I really think the running game could be the difference you. You can run a boy he's safe. And they're very good team but you can run around and they give up 234 yards I think Ryan Mathews of Fresno state a -- and last year so they they aren't too much size on the Lions and I think that's. One advantage Virginia Tech it happened and there they can and they will hand the ball a lot throughout the entire game and you know I look for some big games from Brian Williams and Evans. Surely you surprised they took the lectured the did not redshirt Wilson and didn't return -- because he is why these two really good experience guys. Shocker for a couple of reasons Warren -- long long ball that -- and I got what I consider the veteran back and you see -- Williams. The best -- back and don't talk about it hornish has seen Darren Evans because lesser of the injury and now they got a kid that they're bringing in that. Should probably be the running back in future. And around wins could -- leaving school early Nelson and he can really committee back with -- Evans and future. Why not save a year you know obviously the coaches see some men on -- that you just can't. You know put him on silent this year and you know those coaches know what they're doing well at the same time you know and do you regret this decision on the -- And you wonder because I've not thought about Brian Williams is he won't I don't think he's good at Blacksburg mixture of defections and had a felt sick. Yeah no question he's -- -- -- -- as he did last year yeah yeah he's -- but bud Foster their defense. So restarted on Cody Grimm Jewish or wild Nicholas brown. Couldn't of course so valuable in that in that role he played. But that I'd never ever any doubt that they're gonna plug those holes we think. It to a as long bud Foster is still the Eagles corner Genentech. I don't know a lot of concerns brother defense he always finds a way to do are there is. I think two separate years that rock and our fighters -- it and took the same situation lost a oh look guys in the NFL. What are they gonna do the book is gonna do you know there -- 170 -- -- -- back there. All the coaches are only just give it to about Hossa -- the plug in the find a way to do it and don't be surprised to see another top ten. And the nation in defense. What you put Hokies priest he's been in the ACC -- to -- the favorite look at tomorrow Miami. I -- a favorite idea but there there's there's several teams that upper Echelon right now Miami is certainly one of them Georgia Tech is still there Florida State should be better North Carolina was there before everybody started to get suspended. Carolina they'd be released in the pregame notes this week -- included. Depth chart there's no point I don't know because who who knows who the heck is going to be -- connected against LSU but I. I got version attack a copy ACC should be a better league this year at the top got -- Georgia Tech. Still gonna be there at Florida State. Atop -- program right now Miami can be really really good I think he's he's he's going to be stronger this year even the kings at the bottom. Duke isn't there's a better program now we'll see about -- Could carry it over there they sort of its -- on Monday. After this for the proceeded to see an exercise that's -- so big because. Now North Carolina -- -- and that should play across they didn't lose and everybody you know that could get ugly fast and -- -- -- tech lose to Boise include all the talk again about a year or the Miami Heat. Yeah yeah. It's Ohio Missouri and Oklahoma that's right and you guys is sort of you bet you -- consciously. Say that about college -- do -- -- we do we do on the other is I think toward the end of my career -- when the agency started about -- them wanna be seen them BC is -- 67 years whatever was and we -- offense that you know we felt you know you. You're always going to -- a game like this couldn't guarantee the total law firm about not. Just Rivers region title in -- -- all right. From what video check out -- in Washington dot com.
