Boston College Throttles Inept Hokies

There are 4 comments on the The Washington Post story from Oct 19, 2008, titled Boston College Throttles Inept Hokies. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., Oct. 18 -- Seven games into the season, Virginia Tech cannot suddenly find answers to fix a lackluster offense. There is no instantaneous solution to stop punt returns for touchdowns. And there is no quick fix to prevent big plays when the defense needs a stop.

If it were that easy, Coach Frank Beamer would have explained how to fix the flaws that were so apparent in the No. 17 Hokies' 28-23 loss to Boston College on Saturday night in front of 44,127 at Alumni Stadium, another tremor to the ever-altering ACC standings.

The problem with VT is the lack of effective Offensive Coaching and Play Calling. Yes they do have a junior offense...but that is the result of poor offense planning and even with a junior offense they are playing poor. The fact that they play consistently poor is not a player problem - it is a coaching problem and n this case the blame must be placed on the Offensive Coach and Play Caller. For many years the Defense and Special Teams have carried the Team in spite of weak Offense... When will any action be taken to change the offense leadership and if not why not?

Who did Sean Glennon kill? Taylors passes aren't any more accurate than a punt, no way he's going to pass them to a come from behind victory.

Its about coaching. You have 2 weeks to prepare for a game like this and play like that. When is Beamer going to man up with his staff? particularly Stinespring. I am so tired of watching 300 pounders zone blocking. They look like elephants. We need the battle won in the trenches. Knock the guy in front of you on his butt and keep goi9ng until the whistle. No excuses. Everybody plays freshmen. Coach them up !!!
