I enjoy watching the Spiders play BCS opponents, especially when we are breaking in new head coaches in Charlottesville...first London, then Mendenhall and now Tony Elliott...
I just wish Coach Elliott didn't have Brennan Armstrong back to lead his offense...that has to make the Spiders DC Wood and Coach Huesman a little anxious, but I expect our players enjoy the challenge of matching up against BCS talent and seeing what they can do...Armstrong had some incredible games in 2021 and most of his wide receivers return...
however, most of Armstrong's offensive line transferred and no stalwart running back returns...can the Spiders defense take advantage of these areas?
Elliott has even more challenging rebuilding to do on the defensive side of the ball...it should be very interesting to see how the Spiders revamped offense fares against what was one of BCS football's worst defenses in 2021...
if the Spiders can slow down Armstrong this could be a fun game...we have very little to lose...the real season will begin in Game Two...
enjoy Episode One of the Countdown...
