Justin Fuente must quickly figure out how to motivate his team for the final two games. (Ivan Morozov)

This feels like Liberty pt. 2, so I’m stepping away from the video again and looking ahead…just not as far ahead as some members of the fanbase right now.Crop featured image

For me, a realistic “positive” end to the regular season would be a gritty showing against Clemson followed by any kind of win over UVA. If the Hokies don’t turn things around in the next three weeks, this will be the season that lives in infamy the same way some of those post-Dooley seasons do. Looking over the Fuente oeuvre, 2018 at least had a win over UVA, and 2019 had a good year marred by the last two games. There’s almost no redemption to what happened on the field this year if the Hokies don’t win at least one more. That’s even if you’re all-in on the idea that the pandemic wrecked this season for the Hokies, or if whoever is the Hokies’ head coach in 2021 wins the national title and sticks around in Blacksburg for a few decades to grab a few more. Even fans hoping for more losses that’ll expedite a coaching change will feel the sting.
