4. Teams haven’t figured out not to kick to Bhayshul Tuten
Like Drones, Bhayshul Tuten has become a key part of the Hokies running game on offense. Brent Pry also has the North Carolina A&T transfer returning kickoffs and you would think by now teams have learned not to kick to him.
The first sign should have been against Florida State on Oct. 7 in Tallahassee. Trailing 22-10 at halftime, the Seminoles kicked off to begin the second half and Tuten returned it 99 yards for a touchdown. Not many players are going to outrun the FSU kick team, but Tuten did and blew by them.
Against Virginia, the Cavaliers booted to him after a field goal in the third quarter, which was a strange decision down 31-0 to begin with, but they compounded matters by kicking to Tuten who did a nice job of letting his blockers set up, do their job and went 94 yards and was barely touched, if even at all, on his way to the end zone.
Maybe the Hokies Bowl opponent will pay attention to Tuten in the kicking game, but then again, maybe they won’t.
