That's right! Angel vs. Devil is back by
popular demand a single request!
The Angel on my shoulder says:
The defense takes another step forward with backups performing admirably and more importantly adequately!
Linebacker play continues to look good and the DBs turn the corner (pun intended) with both run and pass support.
Ryan Willis learns to read... Defenses! With his new found literacy he hands off at the right time to the right person AND actually sees receivers on the left of the field.
Corny finally quits holding out and shows us why Saban is going to hire him away from VT next year by calling plays our offense can actually execute!
Nard-ass is so frustrated he breaks 4 headsets on the way to an NCAA record (I just invented this category. Trust me, it's worthy).
All in all, it's a story book day worthy of a motivational speaker's anecdote.
VT: 45 Pitt: 0
The Devil on my shoulder says:
The defense folds like a tent. Pitt's running back gashes them for 10 yard runs on first down. Pitt never punts.
Pitts defense sits back all day in 4-3 with two high safeties and challenges us to do something interesting. In the spirit of compliance we throw QP in the game and run him directly into the strength of their defensive front. He, unfortunately, gets a high ankle sprain and is out for the season; but at least his redshirt is saved!
Another game where "execution" reared it's ugly head and stole defeat from the jaws of victory.
Nardouchy can't help but gloat after Fuente's dominance of him comes to an end.
VT: 14 (all in the first half) Pitt: 63
What do your Angel and Devil say?
