An early look at Virginia Tech vs. Boise
Every Friday on the blog, I do a mailbag -- it should stay that way for the season, too. Thanks to all for the questions that came in via Twitter; you can contact me here anytime.
And now, this week's mailbag.
From @Drofdarb23: Why are you picking VT over Boise St? Long trip for BSU? Broncos wont be able to stop the run? Hokies' D too good?
I have a lot of respect for Boise and what a well-coached team the Broncos are -- and if this game was in Boise, I'd be very tempted to with the Broncos, but this is a long road trip for BSU. They are 1-3 on the road against schools from BCS conferences. They're facing one of the best one-two punch RB combinations -- Ryan Williams and Darren Evans -- in all of college football, and are doing so while breaking in a new defensive coordinator. Tech has a very experienced coaching staff. I expect the Hokies to be prepared for all of the motion and shifts and tight end action that Boise brings.
For all of Bruce's thoughts, you need to be an Insider.
