Boise State Vs. Virginia Tech: Role Reversal

Ahhhsbn_medium

Boise State’s gameplan thus far has been simple: be Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech’s has been simple, as well: be Boise State in 2005 against Georgia, when the Broncos spat up the ball early and often in getting behind on the road at Georgia.

First the Hokies tried a variation of the fumblerooski involving the center kicking the ball. This is illegal, of course, and also gives the ball to the other team, but you’ll never know that for sure until you try it on the field of play. Boise kicked a field goal, and took a 3-0 lead.

Then, as if on cue, Brent Musburger complimented the special teams of the Broncos. Virginia Tech’s ensuing punt met the hand of a rushing punt blocker, the ball was recovered just shy of the Hokies’ endzone, and one play-action pass later the Broncos and their NFL Europe castoff unis were up 10-0 on Virginia Tech.

I’d like to stay rational, but I only have one thought right now: AHHHHHHHHHHH.
