â†µToday, Glennon was simply mediocre, tossing two crucial picks against unranked East Carolina. Virginia Tech looked like they'd hold on to avoid the upset ... until, with two minutes left in the game and Va Tech up two, ECU's T.J. Lee returned a blocked punt for a TD. Glennon gained three total yards on the final Hokie desperation drive. Va Tech loses.
â†µAt this point, Beamer would seem to have no choice but to renege Taylor's red-shirt status. It's the worst of both worlds: you lose the benefits of that extra year of eligibility, you lose what should have been a fairly sure W, and you lose any confidence your second-best QB (Glennon) had.
â†µBeamer is all about high-risk, high-reward football. It was surely a risky gambit to sit Taylor. It took only one week to blow up spectacularly. Beamerball ... not off to a good start this season.â†µ
