I agree. Throw out last week and this week.....

in the overall assessment. WVA was way better than us and they would have scored 50+ on many ECU teams over the years. VT, when they are good, are always tough to beat - we've only beat them once when they were good and the was in 2008. I recall we played them in 2000 at home. A much anticipated game between VT coming off their national championship game (lost to FSU) and ECU coming off a 9 win season. VT was up 31-0 at halftime.

We'll see where we are by the end of October with conference play. Based on last year and what I've seen so far, I think we are in the midst of John Thompson, part 2. I hope I'm wrong and want Mo to succeed.

If this is JT, part 2, the worse part is we have Compher as AD. And even if he pulls the plug, it will be very hard to get a good coach to come in under him.

Best case scenario, would be for Compher to be gone if a new hire is made AND the new AD is in place. All AD's have a tendency to want to have "their" coaches under them so it would be best to have a new AD to hire any new coaches. Even Terry Holland was like that.
