Post-Ohio State, this Virginia Tech football season has been a succession of body blows to the Hokie fan base. Saturday’s embarrassing loss to Wake Forest was the latest and the biggest … but it’s possible that a bigger one might come Friday.

I usually avoid calling a loss “embarrassing.” I think that’s message board hyperbole. But when you play the first scoreless regulation game in college football in almost a decade, “embarrassing” isn’t hyperbole.

When a Google search on “Virginia Tech Wake Forest game” produces the following links, well … it is embarrassing.
