In spite of the gross statistical advantage Tech had, their offensive coordinator is to blame for this loss. Over and over his calls were questioned by the commentators. Anyone with a decent football IQ would make the same determination. The guy has been the goat of every high profile loss Tech has suffered in the past 3 years. Beamer needs to grow a pair and dump his buddy. They've been stuck in the mud for too long and it's time for a change.

I agree 100% but Hoo fans have no room to talk trash as long as Tech beats our butt every year. Hopefully recruits (at least those who can spell their full name) will begin to realize that "Beamer Ball" is a thing of the past.

Lots of Beamer bashing in the Blacksburg press. Interesting. Some people will never be satisfied.

But why does vt think it is so entitled to everything? There is such a thing as a rivalry, but then there's being downright rude. You don't come to Scott Stadium and make fun of it ("add a 1000 more seats and it would be great for a high school"..."the band is the best thing from UVA and that's not saying much"...) They forget the 30,000 candles that UVA sent to them for their Candlelight Vigil after the tech massacre. They forget that it was UVA who fought for them to come to the ACC. I'm all for rivalies but the rudeness needs to stop.
Excuse after excuse of why they lost the Sugar Bowl, but not one of them is "Michigan was the better team". Suck it up, hockies. You lost and get on with your life.
You're right "Spring Out". Hoos have no room to talk trash, but at least we hold our head high and we accept our defeats.

I didn't take long for the Hokies to start making excuses and blaming the officiating crew. How about taking responsibilty for the loss and give Michigan their due credit. Always the bridesmaid, never a bride....

VT should give up football and refine their dance routines. When one does something right.....he does the jungle dance,ballet bounce, the bellie bop or any of the many things each does to get attention.
Really, they need to conserve all their energy for FOOTBALL!!!!!!!

well all i can say is we played a good game, but it did come down to a few bad coaching mistakes along the way. a fake punt...failed, which did lead to a michigan field goal. can't blame the refs, players, fans, etc. we played good ball and just came up short. I thought we played a good game. logan had good composure in his first bowl game too. hopefully we do better next year.

i was disappointed that uva didn't do better. they have a good football team and in my opinion should have given auburn a better game.

but you know what....we are all football fans and love watching our teams play regardless if we win or lose. GO HOKIES!!!!!
