ON ALL THE TALK BEFORE THIS GAME ABOUT TECH’S RED-ZONE ISSUES AND TENDENCY TO RUN ... THEN 3 TDS IN 3 RED-ZONE TRIES TODAY, TWO OF THEM PASSING: "You know, I wasn’t even thinking about that until you guys said something to me Tuesday. We put in a whole new offense in the red zone. I actually brought my son Daniel. Somebody said a ninth-grader could do a better job in the red zone than you. So I brought Daniel down here and, heck, they were right. Wow. I go, ‘What do you think?’ He called it out. Boom, touchdown. He’s out there still celebrating."

You think Rutgers has struggled offensively? Virginia Tech is always known for winning with defense and special teams. Their offense has been a liability in recent years, causing virulent fan criticism of coordinator Bryan Stinespring. Their woes eventually culminated earlier this year with a loss to James Madison.

"He’s pretty fast," Johnson said. "But a lot of people get it mistaken at the conference he played at. Was it the Big Ten? They’re a slow conference. They don’t have fast guys in that conference. It automatically makes him look like he’s a real fast guy." Chris Johnson busting Ted Ginn's rep as a speedster. I guess if anyone has the right to say who's fast or slow...it's Chris Johnson. I wonder if that's how he picks up ladies. Lady: Hi, I'm Monica. Chris: Hi, I ran a 4.24 at the NFL combine. Lady: Oooo that's nasty.

Virginia Tech lost all-conference tailback Darren Evans to a season-ending knee injury Tuesday, leaving the ACC's preseason favorite without an established runner to complement quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Evans, a sophomore from Indianapolis, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during practice, the school said in a news release. He sprained the same knee Friday. Last year Evans, a second-team all-ACC choice, set league and school records for freshmen with 1,265 rushing yards. He was voted offensive MVP of the Hokies' Orange Bowl victory over Cincinnati, a game in which he gained 153 yards and scored a touchdown. Evans' injury elevates Josh Oglesby to No. 1 on the current depth chart. Seldom-used last season as a redshirt freshman, he rushed for 88 yards on 38 carries.
