The winning lunch menu was:

Pulled Pork
Brunswick Stew

I know we have been pushing hard on the Capital Campaign to raise funds for a new house.  One of the items that has not gotten the attention it deserves because of this is the schalorship donations.  We give out scholarships at Homecoming to those active brothers that exemplify our cardinal principles.  Please consider a schalorship donation of any denomination.  You can donate online by going to the bottom of the Homecoming page and you will see a PayPal option for scholarship donations.    Now on to the game notes courtesy of KD 804….

Virginia (4-3) at Georgia Tech (6-1)

Saturday, October 25, 2008. 3:30 pm

The Jackets had a nice showing against an emotional Clemson team last week. QB Josh Nesbitt completed a pass for the go ahead touchdown in the 4th quarter. Nesbitt also had a few impressive plays where he ran over some defenders. Clemson tried to rally under their new coach Dabo Swinney but came up short. Clemson fans were holding up signs that said Yabbo Dabo Doo in honor of their new coach. Question: how many winning football programs rally around Fred Flintstone? Answer: zero.

Here are some stats worth mentioning. B-back Jonathan Dwyer rushed for over 100 yards for the 5th time this season and leads the ACC in rushing yards per game. Safety Morgan Burnett had two interceptions against Clemson which gives him five for the season. He is tied for the lead nationally.

Virginia comes to Atlanta after a surprising overtime victory against UNC. They drove 85 yards in the last 1:35 of regulation to force overtime. Their offense is lead by sophomore QB Marc Verica and senior TB Cedric Peerman. Their defense includes LB Clint Sintim who leads the ACC in sacks with 8 this season. Virginia has won 3 in a row which includes an impressive win over East Carolina and a shut out of Maryland.

Every ranked team in the ACC lost last week. The glass is half full guy says that the conference is well balanced. The half empty guy says that the conference is inconsistent and nauseating. With a little help, Tech has a shot at winning the Coastal division. We need to win the rest of our division games and 3 out of 4 of them are at home.

Line: Tech is favored by 11.5

Prediction: Virginia is 4-1 at home and 0-3 on the road. Their last road game was a 31-3 drubbing at Duke on September 27. If we take care of the ball, I do not see a problem here. Tech 24 – Virginia 10

Damn Glad!
