This is why these nerd stats are for basement dwelling virgins who have nothing bettter to do than crank the Jank and obsess over dumb numbers. Anybody with two eyes knows VA is a way better team than Miami. This game is not going to be close.
SP+ has the game 27-20 Miami, FWIW
So this year Tech is better than This VA? Turn in your football card.No they're not, but getting 5 turnovers in a half will make anyone look a lot better than they are.
UVA was losing by double digits at home to Old Dominion and had 244 yards of offense for the game, they've been under 4.7 YPP on offense in 3 of their 5 games this year (for the record, 4.7 YPP ranks you 110th in the country), they have a terrible turnover margin, and the QB is playing much worse than he did last year. The advantage they have is they rush the passer well, which will obviously give Miami problems. But this is an average team, much like Miami. It'll be close, just like basically every Miami game has been recently. Whoever does the little things well and plays well in the 4th quarter will win, which could very well be UVA, but let's not act like this is some juggernaut football team. They're a better team than VT, but far superior is a little much.
Every year is different, but I think VT has won about 15 in a row over UVA, by the way.
Yep...we are probably not good enough to go bowling this year, and we will have these first few close losses to blame. Please take a moment to allow this information to sink in.
