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.
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.
