Not so fast my friend

Plenty of the VT fans thrashed the defense even in the years where the D played great overall. Our D was incredible compared to most every other program, but people still complained.

The issue is fans expect the "good part of the team" to play "flawlessly", and the "bad part of the team" to play "at least very good or almost flawlessly".

It's a question of expectations, meaning if you expect a guy to hit 60 home runs a year and he only hits 30, then people will blame him for losses - despite the fact that he isn't really the root issue... instead it's the pitching
- but if the pitching always sucks - people will still blame both the pitching and the home run guy.
