Hokie fans, I have some simple questions for you.  What is worse than two losses in a row?  The answer, three losses in a row.  What is worse than three losses at home?  Four losses at home is what is worse.  The Hokies have accomplished both these feats that I never thought were possible.

Not only have they lost more games at home than in 20 years but they also have put themselves in a horrible position to continue a very important streak to fans as well as recruits in their bowl appearance streak.

The Hokies came into the Boston College game needing to get a win to help their chances in making it to a 22nd consecutive bowl appearance.  However, this was not to be as the Hokies fell for the 5th time this season to a Boston College team that was not the best team on paper but was the best team on the field for the majority of the game.

The Hokies had the offensive firepower on the first drive and in the fourth quarter that has been missing in this last stretch of games.  However, it was the middle part of the game that ultimately doomed the boys from Blacksburg.  Unlike last week, there were more good parts but there is always parts that could be worked on in order to become a better, more complete team.
