Well, there are the two others arrested with Vick, the two others kicked off the team this spring/summer for other transgressions, the recruit from North Carolina (Council?) arrested for stealing electronic equipment...
I can also delve into VT history with the rampant rapes and so forthe back in the 90s...
BTW, just so you know, D-1A football teams have 85 scholarships.
Most fans are predicting a 9 win season for us. I however think we could be better if a few thigns come together...mainly the young talent we have needs to show what they can do and we will be on a good track to make it what...11 STRAIGHT bowl games.
Who is predicting 9 wins that has a football IQ above room temperature? C'mon. You lost Vick, have some other suspensions, your starting tailback broke his leg last spring, you are returning no one who was All Big East last season (I think 8-9 players with those honors left), and you have a tough schedule this year.
Why are you going to be better than last year? You lost your best players.
USC and WVU are on your OOC slate. USC will whip your ass, and WVU will follow up on the last two games and make it 3 in a row.
Throw in Miami (away), Virginia, and Maryland in a e game stretch, along with NC State and Wake and I don't see 9 wins unless you get a poopload of breaks.
