Latest Frank Beamer Items
As coaches prepare for the upcoming college football season, much of the talk focuses on the new College Football Playoff.
Though the offense looks improved in almost every position, the Hokies are still in need of a starting quarterback.
Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer insists that the Hokies' offense will be better than it was a year ago.
The Hokies opened up spring practice Thursday and Mark Leal took an important step towards becoming the team's next starting quaterback.
Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer and Tennessee coach Butch Jones will serve as co-grand marshals for the Food City 500 on Sunday at the Bristol Motor Speedway.
Virginia Tech (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) played its first postseason game in the 1947 Sun Bowl, losing to Cincinnati. This will be the Hokies' 21st consecutive bowl appearance under coach Frank Beamer.
The kicker earlier was suspended for Virginia Tech's Sept. 21 game against Marshall for an unspecified violation of team rules. Journell pleaded guilty in May 2012 to misdemeanor trespassing. He was suspended from the team for seven months and missed Virginia Tech's 2012 Sugar Bowl appearance.
Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas completed 24 of 41 passes for 391 yards and two TDs, but was picked off twice and fumbled twice, leading to 17 of Boston College's points.
Virginia Tech coughed up four interceptions in varied and comical fashion, converted just 4 of 18 third down attempts and missed a pair of field goals. And could not possibly have won. Perhaps that best explains how the Hokies finally got burned in a humiliating 13-10 loss to Duke after playing with fire all season.
