Beast tips hat to great college game

If you wondered why Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Darryl Tapp kept sending tweets during last night's amazing game between Boise State and Virginia Tech, it's because he's a proud Hokie. Tapp and former Virginia Tech star Michael Vick were on the wrong end of a 33-30 score Monday. But former Boise State Bronco and current Eagles safety Quintin Mikell had a wonderful evening.

In Washington, former Hokies star DeAngelo Hall was the headliner at a watching party. And the Redskins also have former Virginia Tech offensive lineman Will Montgomery on the roster.

The Dallas Cowboys have former Boise State cornerback Orlando Scandrick. He loves the fact that he's from a non-BCS school and he's explained several times to me how the Broncos do such a good job with recruiting. (It takes more than just a blue field that's a threat to bird life).

The New York Giants had former Virginia Tech safety Aaron Rouse on the roster last season, but he's now with the Cardinals. I hope most of you guys were able to see that game last night. I'm not sure we'll see a better one this season -- college or pro.
