    Once again people are judging an ACC team by the Clemson standard instead of remembering how bad the rest of the conference got beat by SEC.

    I like my team as underdogs. Keep insulting our Cats AP. Stoops and crew will keep shutting up the haters. Va Tech plays in a trash conference. UofL “had one of the most explosive offenses in the country” before coming in to play against the Cats. How’d that work out? Tech has good run D because their conference is atrocious and without Clemson they are no better, if not worse, than the Pac 12.

    It’s early the fact we are only a 3 point underdog just shows how much confidence the AP and Vegas actually have in VT. Would not be surprised to see us a 3-4 point favorite by the time game day rolls around.
