Some interesting outsiders perspective on VT football:
To an outsider: They're just not Virginia Tech anymore. The defense is gone. Beamer Ball is gone. The idea that a bunch of Newport News kids hiding over yonder in the mountains would lure a Miami or Clemson to Blacksburg on a Thursday night and by the time "Enter Sandman" finished you were convinced as a fan or rival or random viewer that something insane was about to happen... all long gone.
If it's this obvious to those of us outside Blacksburg that things are so off-brand, it must be hell "in the building." Babcock's second chance to provide Virginia Tech with an identity after its creator-architect weighs heavier than just a standard P5 job opening.
