Well Hokies fans let’s face it, last weekend might have been the worst college football game in the history of football. The Virginia Tech vs Wake Forest game was at times extremely hard to watch though honestly, the whole game was hard to watch. It appeared the Hokies left half their team back in Blacksburg. It is a loss like this that tests a program’s resilience and their ability to forget. A loss like this also brings the critics into a feeding frenzy.
Many critics are calling for Beame’rs head, and a complete overhaul of the program by athletic director Whit Babcock. Many fans agree with these critics but Hokie Nation, pump the brakes a bit. Granted, this loss was devastating and puts a huge amount of pressure on the Hokies when they face their bitter rivals from Charlottesville.
However, this loss is not a reason to get rid of all the people who have helped make this team what they have become in the past two decades. As you read, what in my humble opinion are the good, bad, and ugly parts of this defeat, think about who is really to blame for each bad and ugly part and who is to be cheered for the good parts.
