Friday Thoughts: Hokies toughen up, dig down


It started with them chuckling derisively about Virginia Tech’s Hokie stone helmets, and talking about how poorly Logan Thomas had been playing.

It ended with them gushing over Bud Foster’s defense, praising Logan’s toughness and near-mistake-free game, and talking about the Hokies having the inside track to the Coastal Division title.

It was meant to be a celebration of Georgia Tech, from the opening sequence showing internet sensation Nick Selby to the 100th anniversary of Grant Field, but from the instant Kyle Fuller lined up tight and burst through the gap into the Jackets’ backfield, Virginia Tech took over and wrecked the party, on the Hokies’ way to a 17-10 win.
