It’s college football time again. And the great Hokies are 3 and 0 so far. But the real question is what is going on with the ACC this year. Miami has already lost to Florida State and they got shelled by Louisville. Florida State got beat by Clemson. UVA can’t even beat Western Michigan, although as a tech fan, I actually enjoy watching them struggle. NC State barely beat a I-AA team and has lost to 2 others. The ACC was supposed to be strong this year, but the teams look horrible. I think Amato at NC State will be looking for a new job soon as well as Groh at UVA, although he has a big contract to consider.
I really don’t know how good Tech is. I predict their defense will finish in the top 5 by the end of the year. They are tough this year, but the offense is a different story. They still have a lot of room for improvement. Saturdays are pretty much shot due to college football for me. But at least there’s TiVo
I also caught the Monday night football game last night for the first time this year. I must say that I was not impressed. The chemistry just isn’t there in the announcing booth. Kornheiser just seems uncomfortable, and when he starts quoting Cosell, then you know it’s going downhill. And although I grew up a huge Theismann fan, he just annoys me being too hyper. However, Sunday night football has been great so far. I just wish it didn’t come on the same time as Extreme Home Makeover, which is my kids favorite show.
