Nice to see how much you care about this young man and his future.
The ACC (Florida State, Clemson, Miami, VT) puts more players in the NFL than does the B1G so saying that these guys can't play isn't supported by the facts. VT has 21 pros to our 31. As to this game, I believe VT is a good, well coached team with a very good defense that, unfortunately, matched up well with our weaknesses (inexperienced O-line and quarterback). Their quarterback was smart and played well enough to win (I know, our 3rd down defense needs work).
What do you think would happen in a rematch at the end of the year when our offense is experienced and we have more balance between offense and defense? I'd like our chances.
Saw him play this year versus Mater Dei (Santa Ana). Two excellent programs and he was, by far, the best player on the field. Didn't know he was this highly rated.

Words to live by in football, basketball (looking at you Thad) and life.
I live about 5 miles from UC Irvine and am not impressed with this hire. Of course, I would not be impressed with anyone from the UC System. Disaster.
