OSG CFB: Can You Say "Blacksburg Letdown?"


It was one of those thoughts in the back of your mind...

Admit it...

After Virginia Tech had one of THOSE wins last week in Columbus taking advantage of a freshman quarterback thrown into the fire, today's game against a very bracket-bustery East Carolina squad had all the looks of a slip.

Sure enough...

They would have had to come back from the largest margin in Frank Beamer's history for a win against the Pirates.

Didn't happen...

Here's the good stuff for East Carolina to hang on their mantle for a quality win

“As good as we were last week playing the deep ball, we were equally as bad this week,” Virginia Tech DC Bud Foster said after the game. “We had a good plan, we just couldn’t make a play on a deep ball all day. They had a freakish play on their first drive that got things going and then they made a couple big plays, but from that point until their last drive, we played our tail off.”

Next week, Virginia Tech will host Georgia Tech in their ACC opener- the Wreck survived their game against Georgia Southern (much to Brother Phil's dismay) 42-38 in Atlanta Saturday afternoon.
