"2009 Virginia Tech Hokies Schedule and Intangibles:
We have to give VT a lot of credit. Despite playing in a very weak conference, this athletic department has the cojones to schedule Alabama for their season debut as Clemson did last year, and we saw how it really hurt Clemson's season. Make no mistake about it, Tech doesn't stand a chance against the Crimson Tide. They simply don't have the passing game to move the chains and their rushing game will be smothered.
The rest of the out of conference schedule is comprised of Marshall, a weak Nebraska team (not VT's fault), and East Carolina. With so much parity in the ACC, Virginia Tech stands a great chance to repeat."
I know a lot of respected sites that rank Nebraska lower than the top 25 (as low as 34th on SI.com) but this is just ridiculous. How can anybody call a team as resilient as this "weak"? Obviously Nebraska still needs to prove themselves, and they will. And I think Nebraska will prove this guy wrong.
