Alabama knows all about the Logan Thomas the Crimson Tide can see on game film.
They have watched the 6-foot-6, 254-pound Virginia Tech quarterback throw breathtaking deep balls and run over linebackers. Alabama also has seen Thomas overthrow open receivers, turnovers that lead to points.
Thomas hopes to show them a more refined version of his skills on Saturday in Atlanta.

In the last five years, only seven teams have managed to beat Alabama, three of which ended up going on to the National Title game...

Each time I see the phrase, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” I’m reminded of a shirt that used to be a hot seller in Blacksburg, Va. The good was obviously represented by the Hokie bird. Bad sat next to West Virginia’s hideous yellow logo. All you have to do to find the ugly […]The post The Good, The Bad And The Ugly: 2013 Virginia Tech Hokies appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
