What a weekend...
Days 'til Virginia Tech: 138

Wow. One helluva weekend. I gotta tell ya, it was definitely fun. Phone died midway through the day on Saturday, so for those of you who left me messages, I apologize.

The QBs didn't look as good to me as they did to everyone else, including McElroy, even though he was clearly the best of the group. All of them made some bad decisions with the football, and tried to put it in places it shouldn't go. Which would explain why they ended up with some interceptions. On the deep pass to Julio Jones in the first quarter, I was the only person in my section that was up yelling at Robby Green. Yes, Julio and McElroy did well on the play, but if Robby Green had read the play correctly, he would've had it for a pick. Lord knows Rashad would have. Haha.

The running back corps didn't look particularly good by any means. They averaged a lil over 2 ypc. Not good. One thing that people can look at as good or bad is the fact that William Vlachos held his own pretty well against Mount Cody. Now, does that mean that Vlachos played well...or that Cody is degressing? We'll have to see.

Marquis Maze is a player. Straight up. He IS Tyrone Prothro. Now, if he can just catch the balls that hit him in the hands. Haha. His reverses were phenomenal. The kid can just flat out see the field extremely well. He'll be our version of Percy Harvin this year. Definitely good to have Maze, Arenas, and Julio all as possible return men - you didn't see Maze back there, but you can bet he's an option. You always want guys that have the possibility to break a play open for a touchdown when the ball's in their hands.

The defense looked good. I just don't know how long Robby Green can keep a hold on his spot. He's playing really well, but he's just undersized by about 3 inches and about 15 pounds for that position. He may prove me wrong, but I'd look for somebody else to take over that spot in the fall.

The offensive line was shuffled quite a bit, but held up pretty well against what looks to be one of the best front sevens in college football.


I'm going to go back at some point this week and rewatch the game - or at least what ESPN showed of it - and come back with some more game notes.
 

Comments: I'm 100% with you on the comments about the QB situation. Between the three of them, there were way too many turnovers. McElroy is clearly the better of the 3, but I've got a feeling he's going to make a lot of mistakes.
