1) Logan Thomas is still the Va. Tech QB
2) Their best CB, Antone Exume will miss the game still recoving from ACL injury
3) 2 other CBs quit the program
4) One RB is suspended, another just tore his ACL and a third is hurt and will likely miss the game
5) One of their best LBs, Ronny Van Dyke is out for the season with a shoulder injury, his replacement is a walk on
6) Starting OT Mark Shuman tore his lateral meniscus in his right knee and is out 4-6 weeks
So VT will start 2 true freshman CB's against AJ McCarron & that Alabama offense. 2 true freshman OT's against that Alabama D, with another true freshman and a walk on as their backups. They will field a walk-on at LB, and a true freshman RB. WOW.
Will it be 50+ to nothing at halftime? Very well could be, the Hokies are in deep trouble in week 1. With all those injuries, they could probably get a few more from playing this game
My final prediction: 63-7, Saban calls the dogs off in the 3rd quarter early
University of Oklahoma: B.S. Aerospace Engineering '10, M.S. Mechanical Engineering '12
It's going to be bad
Fell bad for VT I like them but man, it will be a blood bath
VT's defense may, may be able to keep it close for a little bit but Alabama will wear that defense down. I'd be shocked if VT scored an offensive touchdown against Alabama's first team defense. If VT's defense can't stop or slow down Alabama, this one will get ugly really quick.
I like them too, my second favorite school...grandpa went there and so did/does a lot of my cousins
but wow, are they in for some serious trouble...if they get a few more injuries that could crumble their season early
they went 7-6 last year, might be something similar again this year with all that's went down already and what's likely to come
I thinl its going to be close and vt may pull it off. This is the perfect setup for them. Everyone is treating VT like they are a mac team because of one down year in the past 10 years.
They are a top 10 to 15 program in the 2000s and any tine you play a top 20 you have to play a good game to win.
Of course bama is top of the world right now but the team better not be treating this game like the fans..that is always when the mighty fall
35 - 0 at half.
backups go in.
47 - 7 final.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
you really believe that, even with all the injuries I listed and the personnel replacements (walk ons, freshman)?
Hahaha! Ohhh...man. Thanks for that.
I think we'll be vanilla as possible to keep our cards hidden for the A&M game. And because VT won't sniff the end zone so we can just play basic football and win easily. Could be a blowout but I think we will just run clock and take the air outta the ball. Boring ass game, I suspect.
Yea AM the 6 and 6 team with a first year hc and qb thay cant conpete in the sec..but beat you last year... nothing can happen..you are right its all decided before the season
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.
34-0 Tide. Saban won't embarrass BeamerBall. You've got yours coming soon, Mountaineer.

What's the line?
Dont cry when I bump this thread at halftime
Vegas has Bama at -19
If VT is within 20 points at the half I'll be absolutely amazed.
This is exactly what I'm expecting. Our defense is talented enough to slow down a vanilla, watered down, Bama offense enough to prevent a blow out. But our OL is in shambles right now....so our offense will go nowhere. The defense will wear down and start getting gashed by the running game. Bama may be looking ahead to A&M, which could cause some mental mistakes on special teams resulting in a VT touchdown or two. Other than that....doubt we score much. Maybe an early field goal...and a late TD against the backups.
Just pray to avoid injuries. Our best CB tearing his ACL in the first quarter against Bama last year really boned our season.
Absolutely. Lazy recruiting a few years ago by some VT coaches is rearing its ugly head right now. We have no depth.
Who's the girl in the sig?
Ashley Ferrara, she graduated OU Law
38 - 0 bama wins
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
No I'll bump it and remind you of that meth trip you were on
Dumbest post of the year.
You should pose this question in the worst thread on tBB. Otherwise known as the Virginia Virginia Tech rivalry thread.
