Happy 2010 everyone hope you all enjoyed 2009 for it was a great year in the sports community and so was the decade of the 2000’s or as some will call it the “UH OH ERA”. But I am here to talk about what happened a half an hour before the books closed on 09 which was the Virginia Tech Hokies capturing their 2nd straight bowl victory behind Ryan Williams who broke the Hokie single season rushing record with a 117 yard night and 2 TD’s which added to his incredible season stats of 21 TD’s and 1655 yds rushing on 293 carries. He averaged over 5 yards a carry and really was the foundation for Va. Tech’s 6th straight 10 win season!!! (only 1 other team has done this… Texas with 9). Continue reading
Another year of NCAA Football is on the way! That means that recruiting is over with and signing day has passed. Tech once again dominated in state. I mean they missed out on interior lineman Morgan Moses but did manage to get their hands on playmakers David Wilson and Logan Thomas. It would’ve been nice if they had gotten Kevin Newsome or Tajh Boyd. The thing that is really going to affect Tech is the way these other ACC Teams are starting to recruit. Like UNC and Clemson. Also remember who the number 1 in state recruit was 3 years ago… Exactly Gator standout Percy Harvin. And now with Newsome heading up to happy valley and Tajh Boyd heading down to Clemson. Before we know it all the talent that is the 757 will be gone and Tech will have to go out of state to places like Carolina and Jersey.
Well this season no one in the world thought that Tech would ever in a million years make it to the Fed-Ex Orange Bowl as ACC Champions. I am just so psyched out of my mind because a lot of people don’t realize that we have Tyrod for 2 more years and we’ve got Evans ,Williams and are latest recruit David Wilson who will be playing in the All-America game Sunday January 4th on ESPN @ 8:00 est . I would have to say that the most reliable player on the whole roster would to be DE Orion Martin. If you look at most of the games this season Martin has had huge plays in all of them. Especially in the ACC Championship game when he returned a fumble for a Hokies Touchdown. And then last night I would have put his INT right up there with Virgil’s and Chancellor. I was also impressed with Tyrod’ s pocket presence I mean sure he got sacked once but boy oh’ boy am I excited for next season. The one thing that I was kind of ticked off about was some of the play calling by Brian Steinspring. I just don’t understand why you would run the ball on a 3rd and long. Another thing that really and I mean really pissed me off was the stupid and ignorant commentary of Tom Brennaman. here is a quote from his BS commentary last night “And Tyrod Taylor and WEST VIRGINIA march down the field for a touchdown.” I was just livid ; How in the HELL do you get Blue and Gold mixed up with Chicago Maroon and Burnt Orange !!! But then again he is announcing on FOX home of the YANKEE HATERS !! Thanks for checking out MB’S SPORTS HAVEN.My next post is probably going to be my annual draft board for the 2009 NFL Draft
