Hokies: Communication At Root Of Their Struggles

Virginia Tech is talking about communication in trying to solve the football problems that have sent the Hokies tumbling out of the Top 25.

Defensive coordinator Bud Foster sat the entire defense down this week and reviewed film of their stunning loss to James Madison. He highlighted where mistakes were made that led to big plays for the Dukes, and tackling and assignment errors that contributed.

Center Beau Warren says the offensive line has had similar issues, and they've hampered the offense that was expected to carry the team from having success in the early going.

The Hokies will need to be sharper on both sides of the ball on Saturday when East Carolina brings a 2-0 record to Lane Stadium. The Pirates are scoring 50 points per game.

    With the exception of playing teams in CuppyUSA, EZU is the perfect remedy for any team who is struggling.

    Dave, again you miss the point, focus! I didn't say ECU would beat any Big 10 teams, I just said that the Big 10 is irrelevant and unimportant in Eastern NC. As a matter of fact, I only know of one other Nancy Lion fan in this whole area, and he has a legitimate reason to be a fan: he PLAYED for PSU, Center in the 1970's. Dave, have you even attended Penn St? Keep pumping up the Big 10, I'll keep laughing every time they make the National Championship game just to get blown out by an SEC school!

    Its utterly amazing how much hot air Dave and JDLadd are full of. I think scientists can attribute global warming to the vast amounts of hot air that filters out of your mouths. Think or say what ever you want about ECU and ENC but remember guys like Sam, Bud, Texas native/ECU Alum, myself, and others will always be here to defend our ECU! GO PIRATES!

    Sammy, you have me confused with somebody else. I said that ECU would finish 5-7 just because they play in CupcakeUSA

    Dave's quote: "Another day in Gunville." Jacksonville, Fayetteville, Durham, Winston-Salem, Norfolk, Podunks Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are full of guns and violence. Only difference is Fayetteville and Jacksonville are military places. Nice try but no cigar!

    Dave, if you think that Minnesota and Indiana can beat ECU, then you need to stop smoking so much. Most people would definately give ECU a chance with their betting money if they played Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois PENN STATE, and even Wisconsin. Ohio State is a different story. I had them picked to win it all. You first say Lincoln Riley will not be in Greenville for long, and then say that his offense wont score 10 points. You said Tulsa would beat the tar out of ECU and then after ECU beats Tulsa then all of a sudden Tulsa is awful. You said when Ruff first got hired that ECU would go 0-12. Dude, seriously you are not making any consistency with your posts. You need to worry about your Kitty Cats trying to get their goals and stay off of the ECU pages. You are like that Boise State fan on ESPN who's obsessed with VT, went to trashing VT before the 2 teams played, and now he wants to trash anybody VT plays just so his team will go to the NC game. Stop obsessing over ECU.
