One more thing to add…to my last rambling post (this one is even more so!). VT just does not look like a well coached team (penalties, mistakes, discipline). We have issues…like a month to practice for this bowl and looking absolutely unprepared. Even if we pull a wild hair out of our 4th point of contact (Clem, you will understand that vernacular) and win this game…we still have major issues. I’m just another arm-chair QB caring about my team…but damn, we seem to have lost our hard-nosed ID.
Don, growing up in VA and going to school there, I’ve followed VT from a distance my whole life. You obviously know the Hokies are not my team.
VT is a mess. Rutgers was more talented than VT. They have better players and that’s hard to believe. I watched your game this season against GT and I told a buddy of mine after that game that that was 2 very average to below average teams. I proved to be a Prophet now. However I remember that game thinking holy cow what has happen to VT.
Your QB is a mess. He needs to change positions. Your offense has been under performing for years. You know what they say, “it’s about the jimmy’s and joe’s” not the x’s and o’s…. well, your former QB’s and RB’s were very good Jimmy’s and Joe’s and that covered up the mess they call the Hokie offense or the x’s and o’s.
Defensively I do not see a great defense. I’ve seen the VT fans here pound their chest about how good the Hokie defense is. Ha Ha… Bud Foster didn’t just forget how to coach. He’s an elite one…. however talent wise slightly better than average but very good or elite, NO WAY.
If VT can’t win 10 every year in the ACC they will get beat down and destroyed in the SEC, where they eventually end up.
I hope for your sake, you’re replacing your entire offense staff and QB. If you don’t, next year will be worse. Exum is graduating and he’s your best defensive player. And perhaps most of all….. Shane needs to get his butt in gear and get some players in Blacksburg. Players that can lead, quality guys verses the thugs you got of which NONE of them are leaders.
Hang in there…. we suck too.
