TROUTVILLE BASEMENT — Hokies trail Boston College 13-3 at the break. I am now ready to advocate one series — just one — for Mark Leal. See how it goes. The mojo couldn’t be much worse for the Hokies right now.
This is not meant to be a singling-out of Logan Thomas. He’s 8-for-20 for 125 yards, no touchdowns and no picks and has six yards on five carries. He’s not the only problem here, not even close.
But his confidence looks to be in the gutter. What do you have to lose if you’re Tech? Thomas isn’t the kind of guy who’s never going to feel good again just because you shook things up during one November game.
Hokies have 61 rushing yards on 20 carries. Short yardage plays — both the calls and the execution — have been woeful, as usual.
Hokies will get the ball to start the second half. Bowl streak on the line and a ton of work to do.
Also, I like Duke getting the 13 points at Georgia Tech at 3:30. Good luck all.
