Matt Hayes of the Sporting News sees Virginia Tech as a program firmly entrenched in decline. I tend to agree, but to me, the biggest reason is one that Hayes doesn’t even mention: glitter on their helmets. That’s right. Virginia Tech has glittery helmets. Intimidating. Anyway, Hayes says Pitt and WVU passed them in the Big East, they ran off to the ACC, and now, the future is just not all that bright. The ACC is a bigger pond with bigger fish, and the program that Frank Beamer built might not be able to hack it anymore. I can’t envision Tech winning a conference championship or playing in a big-time bowl anytime soon. With that, recruiting takes a hit. With that, everything goes down hill. But other than that, I’m sure the ACC will be a lot of fun for them.
