A lil thank you 'Open Letter' column to Sean Glennon. Love him or hate him as a qb, the kid has gotten too raw a deal by a few. I hope he got a lot of enjoyment in college like I did.
Sh!tty Viewing Week
|From BCO pix|
... Once you get past Thursday Nite Lights
A Hokie win on Thursday and VT looks to be in solid shape to return to the ACCCG with only home games vs doook and uva left. Nothing is a given for sure but home games gotta make one feel as good as they can. Miami is real young, freshman and sophomores dot the qb, rb, wr, dl and linebackers. They are going to be really good in 2 years, as is UNC, VT, f$u, GiT and maybe Clemson if they get a good coach. I think that Bud Foster and the now maturing D will give Miami a lot to chew on and keep the points scored on them to a reasonable level. The question is, can the offense hold up it's end? Glennon, as long as he is protected give the Hokies the best chance of moving the ball down the field. Tyrod is in a mental funk and injured to boot. The OL won't be blowing holes in the Miami DL and Evans isn't going to truck anyone like he did last week but a 100 yard game with a TD or 2 would give the Hokies a good chance of winning. Pretty interested to see the 'Wild Turkey' formation some more and if they added a new wrinkle or 2 to it. I hope special teams breakdowns don't doom the Hokies, they are really bad in that department this year.
No reason to stay at home to catch any game on Saturday, unless they are your team. Next week is a little better if only for Tejas Tech at Oklahoma. BCO gonna have a lil get together for that, some beer, cornhole and food. Gonna be a good nite.
Previous picks and Season to date;

Ughhh, that was a crappy week!
This week's Sched and Picks
|Thu 11/13||7:30||ESPN||VT (+4)||Da U|
|2 very young teams, with the canes playing more youngens. VT's D is getting better and better. I suspect they'll confuse the freshman qb's of da U. Luckily for the Hokies, the homefield advantage of da U is non-existent or I would pick them. The canes have only lost 1 Thurs nite game. VT 3. close ACC game, VT's O looking better w/a qb who is not afraid to pass (as long as he gets protection.)|
|A pretty sh!tty conference with a pretty sh!tty game but the BCO is hurting finding 8 good games. Cincy is the league's most consistent team, so I guess I will pick the bearcats, I might watch 5 mins of this thing.|
|Sat 11/15||12:30||FSN||Tejas (-13.5)||Kans-ass|
|Tejas Tech hammered the Jayhawks, so expect the Horns to do the same. A typical highscoring B12 game, take the over for you guys who like to bet. Horns need BCS style points, could be an ass whoopin' or a BCS buster game?|
|3:30||CBSC||bYu (-3.5)||Air Force|
|the fightin' mormons have not let their 1 loss drag them down to hard, they still lay a lot of points on the board. The falcons D can't slow 'em to much, they will put a few points, but not enough. Worth a look if the other 3:30 games bore.|
|3:30||ESPN-GP||Cal||Oregon St (-3)|
|The Beavers control their own destiny. Win out and they not the Trojans play in the Rose Bowl, against a State Penn team that beat their ass early in the season? Cal just effed up by USC, can they help out their rivals by beating the Beavers down? BCO hopes not.|
|Conventional wisdom says UNC. Playing the best ball in the ACC, better balance, much better D. Throw it out, it's the ACC in 08. Going Beano and taking the Home team and going Hokie, hoping someone takes UNC down a spot in case VT loses.|
|3:30||CBS||souf carolina (+22)||UF|
|The ole ball coach has all of the sudden become a traditional $EC game, you know win by defense and ball control. The BCO misses the 'fun n gun', cause the 'cock n fire' looks like a 63 yr old man standing their with his dick in his hand. Though with Garcia at qb the Gamecock O looks a lot better. UF needs to hammer the cocks for BCS style points. The visor likes to stick it UGA, Tenn and now UF. Not too close but not a blow out either .|
|Sound fundamental defensive team, you can't run on .. Equals low scoring game. The noles who aren't fundamental but should force some turnovers from Cane, the bc qb will keep it close. Tough game to call, but rumors abound that a bunch of Nole players and some Sigma fraternity got in a fracas. Of course this LINK puts ZERO blame on the players. 4 people (no players) hurt, including 2 wiminz. Stay classy. Come to think of it, maybe f$u, like state penn is back, 'just thug it up!'|
