When your conference’s best showing of the day was Virginia’s game struggle against Southern Cal, there’s not much else to say. Every ranked ACC team went down to defeat yesterday, including Virginia Tech’s humiliation at the hands of 1-AA James Madison. Miami demonstrated – again – that the way to beat them is though the overrated Jacory Harris. Maybe it’ll start dawning on people that FSU’s biggest problem on defense is that it has almost no talent on that side of the ball.
And so much for all that ACC Coastal-is-the-toughest-division-in-college-football talk.
So I have to say that Schultz’ headline isn’t exactly fair to Georgia Tech. The Jackets didn’t look particularly worse than any of their brethren in getting beat by Kansas. They just didn’t look any better.
A couple of special notes about the Tech game… If you caught any of it (and I just saw snatches of it while the Georgia game was on), I hope you got the same chuckle out of the broadcast mention of the Nesbitt for Heisman website that I and my friends did when we heard it. 5 for 15 passing and 33 yards rushing is the type of performance from which legends are born.
And you’ve got to appreciate the special brand of sportsmanship on display by Tech at the very end of the game when it kept stopping the clock with offsides penalties. I thought Kansas was on the verge of becoming the first D-1 team to gain a first down running the victory formation. Too bad they ran out of downs.
