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.
