Press Conference: Frank Beamer

Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer talks with the news media in advance of his team’s game on Saturday at North Carolina State.

Opening Statement

I’m really proud of our football team to go up to Boston College and beat a good football team. I thought we play exceptionally hard, I thought we hung in there, did things well, and even though we didn’t get some touchdowns there in the red zone we didn’t give up the ball. We got points, got fields goals, and that’s a good thing. There were several offensive plays where ten guys are good and one guy misses a block or blocks the wrong guy or we have a foul. I think offensively when you do that, the play doesn’t look very good, but I think we’re close to being doing things well offensively we just have to get all eleven doing it consistently right and our guys want to. We’re going to work hard this week and get ready to play what I think is a really, really good football team, NC State. They’re just fast. They’re fast on defense; they’re fast on offense. Russell Wilson makes them go and they’re really an exceptional football team that’s playing with a lot of confidence and playing fast, and we’re going to have to have a great week to prepare for them.
