Wild Turkey Breakdown | bc and Coaching Comparison

A few quick nuggets from the bc game before I get to a look at how our last three head coaches have started out at VT…

  • Points off Turnovers – bc had a 29-0 advantage
  • Defense – Tech has now allowed 53 or more points in a half in four straight games, and 86+ in all four games
  • Tech has lost four straight by double digits for the first time since ricky stokes was in town


Here’s a look at how ricky ‘program bomb’ stokes, Seth Greenberg, and James Johnson looked after their first 15 games (and I’ll reserve my ‘JJ has a much better deck to work with than SG had’ comments for myself).

The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.
