Bottom Line: Virginia Tech Just Isn’t Very good

There’s not much to say about the Duke game. We can analyze it until we’re blue in the face, but we all know why we lost: we have talent issues at certain spots,  we have depth problems at others, we have questionable in-game coaching decisions, we make too many mistakes, etc. In other words, we just aren’t very good, and that’s why we’re 3-5.

I’ll talk a little bit about the Duke game, but I want to touch on a couple of other topics as well.  It sure doesn’t seem like Frank Beamer will be back for 2016.  If you’re more interesting in reading about that than the Duke game, feel free to skip down to the “Recruiting Misses” section.
