That's the big question I wondered about several weeks ago. Is the first road game thing specific to us? I doubt it is. Maybe it's more pronounced with us, but Virginia has to deal with it to some extent. That would be an interesting stat. What is a coach's record, or a program's record in their first road game over the last X number of years?
My concern is that Virginia will do for the whole game what Indiana did in the fourth quarter - force anyone else other than Chase Brown to beat them. If they stack up the box, but Tommy and the receivers have dialed it in (and we get a couple early sacks), we can overcome Armstrong.
There's a certain ring to a group led by a jersey boy called Tommy and the Receivers. A good marketing person should take advantage of that.
