Hokie fans I will admit I have not watched many of your games. Based on the few I have seen it really looks like Logan Thomas has gotten much worse from last year. Tonight he has been very inaccurate. Not even close on some. I’m actually surprised Beamer hasn’t put in a backup. What’s his deal? Not too long ago people were calling him the next Cam Newton.
Combo of things. Worse OL in 25 years has caused him to anticipate pressure which has caused mechanical flaws. The flaws are much more pronounced when you’re 6’6” vs 6’0”. O’Cain can’t help him, hence, he’s being run out of town.
Furthermore, we have no running game. Worse running game since 1971. So the D drops 8. Lost our best WR (DJ Coles) in the first half of the first game. Thankfully, he was granted a Medical RS and will return. All that makes it hard.
Now, for icing on the cake he led our team in rushing and rushing attempts. Don’t care how big and strong your are. If you’re getting hit 25-30 times a game, it will affect your throwing.
All in all the talent is there, super-size, super strong arm, and off the chart athleticism. He set the VT single season offensive record for yards from scrimmage in a season last year as a Soph. His choices are bounce back from a bad Jr year or become a late first to third round NFL draft pick. Either way kid’s got a bright future.
