Virginia Tech got to Jack Coan early, but they lacked aggressiveness at the end of the game when Coan returned. (Ivan Morozov)

For a while there, I thought I’d be writing a lukewarm article about a Virginia Tech win over a top-fifteen team, and I wasn’t looking forward to it. I’d give my kid’s lunch money to be writing that now. It felt like last year’s Liberty game all over again. I’m not in the spot to do loads of video this week, so I’m going text-heavy. We’ll back to regularly scheduled programming next time.

This year, I’m finding myself strongly disagreeing with more in-game decisions by the coaches than I think I have in previous years, leading to me talking at the television/computer more than is probably healthy. A few things happened against Notre Dame that I imagine had a lot of Hokie fans feeling the same way as me, and one of them was Tech’s conservative defensive approach at the end of the game.
