Press Conference: Frank Beamer

Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer talks with the news media on Tuesday. Virginia Tech (6-2, 4-0 ACC) hosts Georgia Tech (5-3, 3-2 ACC) on Thursday night.

Opening Statement

The thing with Georgia Tech, of course, is trying to get ready for a different offense in a short period of time, against a quarterback that’s very good at it, against a staff that’s very knowledgeable and has done it for a long time and has seen just about every defense they can see. So that’s our challenge there. We need to have a great preparation here this week and get ready to play on Thursday.

I think Tyrod has been solid throughout. I think his first two losses, there were some other things involved, but I think Tyrod has been very good and here lately I think he’s been very much in control, he’s kept plays alive finding guys down the field, he’s been very accurate, he’s been a great leader. I think he’s a tremendous quarterback, but there’s a good one on the other side too that’s hard to tackle and runs that offense very well.
