As noted, if things haven't changed for decades, they aren't likely to change now. We just have to hope the Hokies can out-athlete the other guy on a consistent basis. And, by and large, they've been able to except when faced with a big time opponent.
However, the systemic philosophies of CFB have produced winning teams, obviously culminating with the MNC game berth in 1999. He had the talent on that team to overcome a predictable, conservative offense. My biggest gripe has been the in-game coaching decisions that invariably derail the Hokies in big games.
