Virginia Tech Quarterback Logan Thomas is the ACC Goat of the Week for Week 1

No one enjoys piling on when things go wrong. But nonetheless, we’ve got to call out the ACC players who were counter-productive in helping their teams grab a victory this weekend. On the bright side for them, they can always get off this list next week. And for their sake, let’s hope they do.

ACC Goat of the Week, Week 1: Logan Thomas, QB/Virginia Tech

Prior to Saturday night’s game against Alabama, there seemed to be loads of chatter about how Logan Thomas had put last year’s failures behind him and how Virginia Tech was prepared to pull an impressive upset. Unfortunately for the Hokies though, none of that ended up coming true. Tech looked like a disaster in all facets of the game, but nowhere was it more apparent than the offense’s continued inability to move the ball. Sure, Thomas wasn’t the sole reason for the issue, but at this point it’s undeniable that he will be struggling more often than not, even if it fails to reach Saturday’s awful levels. Few of the nation’s quarterbacks can manage to complete just 19 percent of their passes for 56 yards and an interception. With numbers like that, you might as well not have a quarterback at all. Thomas and Tech can redeem themselves soon enough, but after a ghastly display like that, things are suddenly looking very dire in Blacksburg.

Honorable Mention:

Drew Allen, QB/Syracuse (189 passing yards, 2 INT)

North Carolina offensive line (three sacks allowed, continued pressure, 293 total yards of offense)

Tom Savage, QB/Pittsburgh (201 passing yards, 1 TD, 2 INT)

Josh Harris, RB/Wake Forest (29 rushing yards)
