Saturday night at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., the Virginia Tech Hokies conceded 495 yards of offense to the Cincinnati Bearcats, capped off by a 39-yard touchdown pass from Bearcats quarterback Munchie Legaux to Damon Julian in the waning seconds of the game. The touchdown sealed a 27-24 win for Cincy.
Gobbler Country, SB Nation's Virginia Tech community, was hardly pleased with the performance.
It's happened again. The Hokies have blown another game late and in embarrassing fashion.
There's so much that just went absolutely wrong in this game and it's hard to single out any one thing. The offense was inconsistent, the defense couldn't cover worth squat and the team look flat from the opening kickoff.
Some fans have even begun to question the continued legitimacy of the Frank Beamer administration in Blacksburg. From the post-game comments:
The search for a new coaching staff needs to begin yesterday morning. ... Frank is due a wonderful fitful retirement as a Head Coach Emeritus, giving his great lectures about winning, work, and helping to spread the word about the new program to new places.
With the loss, the Hokies fall to 3-2 on the year.
