BLACKSBURG (WSLS10) - In a video uploaded to twitter, ESPN responds to Hokie Nation's #GameDay4Frank.

"What an overwhelming response from all of the great fans at Virginia Tech to try to have Gameday for Frank Beamer. We hear you loud and clear. Hokie Nation, we appreciate all the craziness and passion. Nobody has more appreciation for what Frank has meant for not just Virginia Tech, but all of college football. Frank, what you did for the Virginia Tech Hokie's football program is on the level of what Bear Bryant did for Alabama what Coach K did for Duke's basketball program. You know I'm so respectful and appreciative of what Coach Beamer has meant for the game. We're thinking about coach and thinking about Hokie nation."
