I just hope we win today. Tired of hearing sports talk radio/boards/national sports broadcasts saying how we don't show up in big games. Obviously, we haven't shown up in bowl/big OOC games in the past, but maybe the team can use a win here to turn the tide for the future. Keep the winning record streak going this year, get some new coaches in the offseason, beat Alabama in next season. We can start a whole new chapter in VT football, and it can start today! Let's Go!
"I don't care what nobody say I'm a be me, stay hood stay real, cause I'm out here grindin'" -Frank Beamer
I think the biggest problem is Beamer's belief that you treat every game the same.. Every game isnt the same, and there are games (Big Games) that you have to get up for and treat differently. You cant have 4-5 of those a year but you can have 2-3 for sure. We need to develop a mentality that allows the kids the opportunity to get up for these types of games and understand how you get up and play with emotion without being out of control and stupid... Its a fine line but that is what the great coaches and teams can do.
The preparation, attitude, and recruiting lazy philosophy is all dictated by Frank and Billy. Neither wants to change anything....one foot in the cemetery. Clearly shown by lack of bowl/big game prep and now another year of no 2nd Jr Day. No matter what happens today and with the coming coaching changes, if Billy Hite and Frank continue their same, lazy attitude about everything, in effect nothing will change.
Win or no win, Billy Hite has to go. He is killing this program with his influence over Frank. No other staff member can effect Frank's thinking with Billy over Frank's shoulder.
