The Russell Athletic Bowl matches Rutgers and Virginia Tech in America's Brasilia: Orlando, Florida. Just thinking about these two teams trading sweet punts for three hours does sadden us, but focus on the positives. Maybe Frank Beamer's making a commitment to returning to his superior form, Fat Frank Beamer. Maybe Gary Nova and Logan Thomas will, against all odds, take out every frustration of the year on hapless secondaries. Maybe Virginia Tech will do things they used to do, like block kicks and win with less than 200 yards of total offense.
Maybe Virginia Tech will put new helmets on, big matte helmets with cartoon turkeys on them. You call us mad, but that very thing could totally happen no matter what you think of VT's long streak of eye-burning headgear.
