1. It’s Marshall week in Blacksburg, the final noon tilt before the Hokies open conference play at Georgia Tech a week from Thursday. Andy has five thoughts on the victory over ECU/a>.
2. Do you feel better or worse about the outlook for the 2013 Hokies than you did the day before the season started?
3. Clemson is No. 3, Florida State No. 8 and Miami No. 16 in the latest AP poll.
4. Another brutal start for the Redskins, who fall behind Green Bay 24-0 at the half en route to a 38-20 loss that drops them to 0-2. Tony Dungy said on NBC last night that the Skins should go to Kirk Cousins at QB if they fall to 0-3.
5. Denver has beaten the past two Super Bowl champions in very impressive fashion.
6. Tampa Bay, Texas, Cleveland, Baltimore, N.Y. Yankees, Royals –they’re all still in it for the AL wildcard as we enter the season’s final two weeks. Huge series in Tampa (vs. Texas) and K.C. (vs. Cleveland) opening tonight.
7. What a race in the NL Central, where Pittsburgh and St. Louis enter the day tied for the division lead. Looks like three NL Central teams (including the Reds, sitting 3.5 back) are going to make the postseason, but there’s a big difference between winning the division and the wildcard. Pirates host San Diego tonight while the Cardinals are in Colorado.
