10:29 AM ET 11.09 | Once hailed as a potential top five NFL draft pick, Logan Thomas has become Virginia Tech's most polarizing quarterback since Sean Glennon. In 2012, following an offseason of Heisman hype, Thomas threw 16 interceptions as the Hokies stumbled to their worst season in 20 years. Now the scrutiny appears to have reached critical mass ahead of Virginia Tech's crucial ACC Coastal Division showdown at No. 14 Miami (7-1, 3-1) on Saturday night. Thomas has been besieged by critics on Twitter and message boards after committing eight turnovers the past two games, both Virginia Tech losses. The fifth-year senior now leads the ACC in interceptions (12), and a vocal segment of the Hokies' fan base has increasingly called on Coach Frank Beamer to consider playing junior Mark Leal, Thomas's primary backup since 2011.

He was always more hype than substance.

He is, but I'm still terrified that Jerrah is going to draft him.

Let's give credit where credit is due: LUS Correctly predicted that Trees would beat Ducks on these boards. He was the only one that I recall or heard that said as much.

BB9 told all of you prior to FSU/Miami that it would not be close. That there was no way in the world this was a top 25 team. That their "signature win" was a home victory over a horrible Florida team who in spite of having 5 turnovers to U's 1 outplayed Miami in every facet of the game except the scoreboard.

I then went on to correctly tell you that they would lose to VA Tech this week. Whoever was tricked into thinking that this program is "back" is buying the hype.

Next thesis: The ACC ...............stay tuned.

Good morning and yes you are correct, LUS did predict the Stanford win over Oregon. Kudos to Bama, they looked damn good last night. It's going to be interesting when the BCS polls come out today. IMO, it's about time to give Wisconsin, Zona State and Texas some credit. I look for LSU, Notre Dame and maybe Miami to fall out of the top 25.

BB9, I forgot, yes you did say that Miami is/was overrated. I am speechless about Florida. Is it time to fire Muschamp?? Also VT looked good last night, will that help Bama SOS?

ACC is a ****. Hard to say what to make out of VATech but I know what Bama is Timer . . . they are clearly the gold standard and will be favored by at least 7 points if they face FSU in the title game. They don't need SOS or anything else in my book. They pass the eye test.

Nobody can go toe to toe with their O line. Their D has just gotten better as the year has gone on. Unless they stumble against AU or in SEC title game they will roll to their 4th title in 5 yrs.
