    Also not sure what to read into this one, but Pitt has opened as a 6.5 pt favorite at Navy. Their game is Saturday at 3:30pm on ESPNU for anyone interested.

    Yesterday's game bolstered my confidence a little bit so I originally thought 8.5 was a bit low. However, with how inconsistent we've been this season, 8.5 seems safe now. I hope we can show consistency rest of the season.

    With that said, apparently London's seat is hot at UVA after losing to Duke.

    With Jon Tenuta blitzing all day, I think Virginia covers, but GT wins straight up

    Why? Blitzing like that is the last thing you want to do against the option.

    If anything, I'd say this could get Syracuse ugly.

    I think that b/c of all the blitzing, a lot of plays could get blown up in the backfield

    GT is now a 10 pt favorite at most sportsbooks.

    Blitzing is feast or famine. If you guess right, it's a big play for you, if you guess wrong, it's a big play the other way.

    UVA doesnt have the horses to blitz us like VPI had. I expect Tenuta to try that but I am causiously optimistic that we will burn them some when they do that. Hopefully last weeks game gave us some confidence to start a roll to a nice finish.
