Hokies 45, Duke 0

Michael, I mean, Marcus Vick had a very respectable day, going 12-19 for 172 yards, 3 touchdowns and a pick.

What an exciting game, for a quarter at least. Not worthy of a recap, but you can check this if you like.

Quick thoughts though, on:

Marcus Vick: Played much better today, despite going against a powderpuff defense in the Blue Devils. Made some very accurate throws, especially in his touchdown passes to Jeff King and Josh Morgan. Unable to see his rushing talent on the day though, as he only ran 4 times for 0 yards. Definitely a confidence booster for the starter, as his next 'legitimate' challenge won't be until the 24th when the Hokies face Georgia Tech. Next week should be a rollover for Vick and Beamer's squad as they face Ohio.

Viriginia Tech looked strong in pretty much every facet of the game, especially on defense. Offensively, Coach Beamer's balanced running attack consisting of backs Mike Imoh and Cedric Humes made it even easier for Vick to take charge through the air. Overall, a very impressive (though expected) win at Wade Wallace Stadium.

Now on a much more serious note, a brief statement on Duke's unstoppable offense (insert sarcasm here). You know it's bad when your basketball team can score more points than your football team can gain yards yards (22 passing, 31 rushing).

So until next week's game against Ohio, here's to another blowout...
