Things to enjoy, going forward.
1. We are 3 games into the season and we're averaging almost 300 yards per game on the ground, led by a bona fide stud who is averaging 150 yards a game on only 15 touches.
2. Speaking of said stud...Herbert has topped 100 yards in three consecutive games, the first time the Hokies had anybody go for a bill in three straight games since Travon McMillon's 2015 games against Duke, BC, and Georgia Tech (McMillon was 5 yards short of 5 straight games, against NC State and Miami)
3. At no point, would I ever say I am upset at this team averaging 42.7 ppg - incredulous that this has been done with a quarterback who isn't as much a threat to throw the ball as another on the team.
4. Especially not against P5/conference opponents. The Hokies last put up those kind of scores against 3 straight P5 opponents in 2010, but that had an interloper in Central Michigan.
5. Especially not against 2 P5/conference opponents on the road. Yes, I know this year is bizarro world, but the fact of the matter is, away still means away. The last time we saw that, it was 2005, which, again, featured MAC interloper in Ohio to break up the streak.
6. So against 3 consecutive P5/conference opponents with 2 or more away from Lane? Is he gonna say it? Yes he is. 1999, against Temple, BC, and Florida State (including true away games, West Virginia, Miami, Temple; also in 1999)
Is this offense perfect? Hell no. But can we at least agree that this offense is producing at a rate we haven't seen in a damn long time. I'm hoping to see these numbers continue against BC next week and most definitely the following week against Wake Forest, the worst rushing defense in the ACC that hasn't already played Tech.
