Hokies Make Late Run at Fulmer Cup

With only a week left to accumulate Fulmer Cup points, the Virginia Tech Hokies launched a late charge early Sunday morning.

Projected starting wide receiver Zach Luckett was charged with a DUI after blowing a .16 and driving with a revoked license and was awarded four points by Fulmer Cup chief executive Orson Swindle. It was the first point-scoring citation by a Hokie this season.

"It may be to late to win the title, but we feel like we can make a run," head coach Frank Beamer said. "We can't let our rivals have all the fun."

Both West Virginia and Virginia have 19 Fulmer Cup points and are in a tie for third behind Missouri and Alabama. West Virginia briefly flirted with first place before having points redacted due to the perpetrator having been removed from the roster following spring practice.

"I just don't know if we'll be able to catch those two," Beamer said, referring to the Mountaineers and Cavaliers. "At this point it may take one of the freshman running a meth lab and prostitution ring out of his dorm."

Beamer apologized to Hokie fans were expecting the team to bring home the hardware.

"We just can't recruit the kind of bad apples those schools are able to bring in," he said. "It may be another two or three years before we're able to compete for a Fulmer Cup crown again."
