How former Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente found himself to be a ‘man on an island’


Virginia Tech’s loss to Syracuse was the tipping point. The Hokies blew a nine-point lead in the final five minutes on Oct. 23 to a Syracuse team that was previously winless in the ACC. The game ended with the few remaining fans at Lane Stadium chanting “fire Fuente." Athletic director Whit Babcock watched his hand-picked successor to Frank Beamer get heckled. (Roanoke Times)
