Buy your cupcakes from some place you can trust.

Virginia Tech chose to shop for a FCS opponent at the Colonial Athletic Association store.  Big mistake:

… But then there’s the Colonial Athletic Association, home to seven teams in last week’s FCS top-25 coaches’ poll, including UMass and James Madison. Since 2006, its average point differential in games against FBS teams is minus-15 points, a relatively competitive figure when compared to the overall average. CAA teams have 10 victories over the FBS over this span (including wins over Virginia, Virginia Tech, Northwestern and Duke twice), compared to 19 for all of the rest of the FCS.

Clearly this is not a conference to be taken lightly – which is exactly what Virginia Tech did by playing James Madison just five days after the Hokies lost to Boise State.

By the way, check out those conference all-time records against FCS schools.  How stunningly bad does that Ole Miss loss to Jacksonville State look?

    Everyone should have their eyes firmly planted on the game in Happy Valley Saturday afternoon…not sure how many years JoePa has left in him, but Temple’s Al Golden is the next college coaching superstar…he may take over when JoePa dies, as he is a Penn St alum…
