Friday Q&A: October 4, 2013


1) Can you truly argue that our rushing game is suspect given the defenses faced, and if so, how?

Chris Coleman: Yes, I think we can argue that the running game is suspect, but I also agree that the rushing defenses the Hokies have faced have been pretty good.  I’d definitely argue that ECU and Marshall’s talent levels were disrespected by Tech fans simply because they don’t play in a power conference.  As I tried to show in my Marshall preview, there were a lot of guys on that team who had offers from some BCS conference programs.

Throwing out FCS Western Carolina, here is the rush defense ranking of all the teams the Hokies have faced this year.
