1) Before the season most everyone would have been happy with a 6-2 record. Who has exceeded expectations this year to get VT to win games it might have lost in similar situations in prior years? Jerod Evans and Andrew Motuapuaka come to mind off the top of my head. I believe Evans has exceeded everyone’s expectations and Motu has been much improved from last year. (Thank goodness). Who else do you feel has stepped up? – HardTimes
Chris Coleman: Obviously we wouldn’t have won that Pitt game in past seasons. The defense allowed 36 points to the Panthers, and the Hokies have struggled to put up points on Pitt in recent seasons. If Tech had allowed 36 points to Pitt in the previous three seasons, the final scores would have been…
2013: Pitt 36, Virginia Tech 19
2014: Pitt 36, Virginia Tech 16
2015: Pitt 36, Virginia Tech 13
Ugly. Instead, the Hokies managed to score 39 points and managed to walk out of Heinz Field with a victory. That’s not something that would have happened in the past against a team the caliber of Pitt.
Virginia Tech’s offense is made up almost entirely of players recruited by the previous coaching staff, which shows that Scot Loeffler, Aaron Moorehead and that group worked hard on the recruiting trail. However, Jerod Evans was brought in by Justin Fuente, and he’s obviously made a huge impact on the Virginia Tech offense this season.
