    Worth tuning in just to see a bowl game not on ESPN.

    Starting VT DT Luther Maddy from Delray Beach was a Rivals 2 star recruit.

    That run by Logan Thomas was eerily reminiscent of . . . I just can't say it. :confused:

    Whoa . . . now a crushing hit by UCLA LB Zumwalt on Thomas. A penalty was thrown, but that should not be a penalty. Too bad Thomas got whacked, but that was a clean hit - shoulder on shoulder. Not late. Not helmet to helmet. Wait . . . what the hell was the penalty? Danielson and Vern dropped the ball on that one. No explanation

    I agree, I don't see why that should have been a flag. BS call.

    I did hear Danielson and Vern say that it should not have been a flag. The refs called unnecessary roughness.

    Masterful job using blockers and the angles on that 86 yard run by Hundley.

    Don't tell Cecil, but another All-Cupcake team is losing their bowl game. :p I know . . . it's early.

    Wow, just WOW. See, there are a LOT of good reasons for not playing in a bowl game when you are mediocre. The VT QB (not Thomas) basically handed the UCLA defender the ball so that he could run it into the endzone. Could you imagine our guy doing that? This board would be shut down!

    That safety was one of the dumbest plays I've seen this year. And I watched all the Gator games.

    The NFL and NCAA should just drop pretenses anymore and become a full-out flag football. It's getting ridiculous--any hard hit these days is met with a flag. Why bother holding yourself out as a physical sport if you're doing everything possible to take out the physicality from the game?

    Bad day for the ACC so far. Completely outmatched in both games.

    ...well, they aren't playing the MAC or Big 10 anymore, so that would make sense.
