It's time for some video from coordinator interviews on Wednesday night.
As usual, here are five takeaways from coordinator interviews with Bud Foster and Scot Loeffler on Wednesday night:
BLACKSBURG — Their egos bruised after East Carolina threw the ball all over the field on Saturday, the members of the Virginia Tech secondary weren’t moping this week, still confident that they can live up to the billing of being one of the better units in the country.
Nobody should be surprised that the Virginia Tech women’s soccer team has moved up to No. 2 in the national rankings, the loftiest height in program history.
Coordinator interviews are tonight, after which I'll have a post-practice update.
CLEMSON AT FLORIDA STATE
Before the video, here's a quick recap of Tuesday's stories/posts if you missed them.
Virginia Tech will be down a receiver for an undetermined amount of time.
BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech will be down a receiver for an undetermined amount of time.
David Wilson will be visiting Virginia Tech this weekend.
Virginia Tech (9-0) rose one spot to No. 2 in the national coaches poll Tuesday — the highest ranking in team history.
Frank Beamer is a pragmatist. He's not into rallying his players with an emotional pre-game speech, the kind of antics best left for Hollywood scripts.
BLACKSBURG — Michael Brewer isn’t accustomed to losing. He lost only once as a starting high school quarterback in Texas and got off to a 2-0 start once he assumed the job at Virginia Tech.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Kyle Fuller’s grass-stained jersey rested at his feet inside a buzzing visitors locker room Sunday night as he explained to teammates how he helped get the Bears’ season back on course.
Michael Brewer isn’t accustomed to losing. He only lost once as a starting high school quarterback in Texas and got off to a 2-0 start once he assumed the job at Virginia Tech.
BLACKSBURG — For all Virginia Tech’s defensive failings in the first half Saturday, the Hokies’ offense didn’t do anything to help the situation.
As quickly as the Hokies jumped into the polls, they dropped out.
Some time has passed since the Hokies' 28-21 loss to East Carolina, enough to draw some day-after conclusions.
Virginia Tech's day wasn't a total loss. The Hokies got a late-night 2016 commitment from Logan Byrd, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound quarterback from Veterans High in Kathleen, Georgia.
BLACKSBURG — There’s an easy out here, really. They overlooked them. They got trapped. They were distracted. The got starry-eyed. They were overconfident. They were nonchalant.
BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech put its corners on an island last week at Ohio State, a high-risk, high-reward approach that paid great dividends.
That was quite a letdown today for Virginia Tech in a 28-21 loss to East Carolina.
BLACKSBURG — The slow start Virginia Tech talked about avoiding all week? It happened, and it has been spectacular.
A week after a monumental win at Ohio State, the No. 17 Hokies came out flat, came back and collapsed late in a 28-21 loss to East Carolina at Lane Stadium on Saturday.
FINAL: EAST CAROLINA 28, VIRGINIA TECH 21
It's game day in Blacksburg. Might want to bring a poncho.
Derek Di Nardo doesn’t waste time trying to be cool. When he leaves the shower, he arranges his bushy hair into a comb over. The beard on his face just kind of happened, after he left his electric razor at a friend’s house and didn’t feel the need to buy a new one.
BLACKSBURG — By Wednesday, when the local media had its first opportunity to talk to Bud Foster about the variation on the “double eagle” package Virginia Tech used to flummox Ohio State, the defensive coordinator was tired of talking about it.
BLACKSBURG — Josh Chambers had never heard of ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease before his father was diagnosed with the degenerative condition in 2006.
