It's week 11 and the Hokies, as well as Thursday night football, are back in the Six Pick. Week 11, week 11 ... damn, this season has flown by. There are only four regular season weeks left and this saddens me. I do take solace knowing big games and big upsets are coming. The BCS Championship Game is not set, no one, not even LSU is guaranteed a spot, they have to win out. The teams still in contention best keep your eyes on the crystal prize because each and every week there is going to be a battle for those who want to take that prize away away. This week those two teams are Oregon and TCU. Both do not have a shot at the national championship, but taking it away from Stanford or Boise State would be the next best thing to winning it, and I'll be watching just in case it happens.
Intense. Loud. Fanatical. Intimidating. All words NOT associated with Stanford football. Who else goes from a stadium capacity of 85,000 to 60,000 and still can't fill it up? I do suspect it will be a full house this weekend, but I am not expecting a T-Town environment. I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised at fan base forsaking their usual Saturday night study hall for Saturday night football with Herbie and Brent and if they can cause one false start, that's a win.
