This post is late because I am just now able to stomach writing about the travesty that occurred last Thursday night.  The Hokies were horrible all over the field and let a Miami team come into Blacksburg and run wild literally.  The Hokies were never really in the game, and it was evident by halftime that Thursday night was a night to forget for Hokie fans.

How could this happen?  What happened to the magic that once was Lane Stadium on Thursday night?  These questions are left in the minds and hearts of the Hokie nation.

Who is left to answer these questions?  According to the coaching staff this just isn’t our year, and the team is very talented but so young.  All these coaches are looking to next year when there are still four games yet to play.  The Hokies still have an opportunity to make a bowl game, and continue one of the more impressive streaks in college football.

The players are of a different opinion saying that a game like Thursday’s will never happen again.  How could this happen? That is the largest question of them all for the Hokies.  The game was hard to watch and for most fans it seemed only a half of the game was all they could stomach.

The stadium went from a packed controlled frenzy to a half-empty stadium with only the diehard fans left to hope for a miracle, or at least a better-played second half.  Unfortunately, that was not to be the result on Thursday.
