Good post. I don't have anything against Fuente on a personal level


but his unflinching loyalty to an offensive coordinator who clearly has us going in reverse is disturbing. Coach Fuente seems to be a good man whose players graduate, stay out of trouble (mostly), and are generally good citizens. We currently lead the nation in fewest penalty yards per game, a testament to Fuente's instilling a measure of discipline in the program.

However, the repeatedly mediocre results on the field, below-average recruiting, questionable roster management, and many other factors clearly call into question Fu's ability to lead VT's football program. Six years in, and Fu has zero ACC titles. We're close to being eliminated yet again, and very unlikely to even win the Coastal division. That really doesn't sit well with me and many other Hokies fans. This isn't how it was supposed to turn out.

For better or for worse, Fuente's days in Blacksburg are numbered, IMO. In December, we'll be facing the previously-predicted coaching turnover. Fuente is a good-but-not-great coach, and I'm sure he'll land on his feet somewhere, likely as an offensive coordinator. But he's clearly in over his head as an ACC head coach; that has been clear for a while now, and is glaringly obvious at present. As for VT, hope springs eternal... it'll be interesting to see who Whit brings in next and what that person's vision for reviving Tech football will be.
