I think Beamer really needs to re-evaluate the offensive staff at the end of this year. We need to bring in a great offensive mind. Someone that knows how to run the spread offense. We should hire Antonio Freeman as our wide recievers coach (could have had Cyrus Jones last year if he was the coach). Keep Stinespring as a tight end coach/plus he's a great recruiter. Need to bring a big offensive line coach. Someone from the NFL or someone that has success developing talent. If we had a kick ass offensive. With our kick ass defense = NC. Just think if our offensive staff was top notch? Justin Hunter (WR); DJ Coles (WR) Marcus Davis (WR), Logan Thomas (TE), Brent Renner or EJ Manuel or Tahj Boyd at QB, and Maybe David Wilson would have stayed. That is a serious offensive. Please, Please MR. Beamer, get a new offensive staff! If you don't you will never win a NC. If we could get 1000 fans to donate $100 a month to buy a offensive coordinator, that would be $1.2 million, which is plenty for a top of the line coach. Whos with me?

You tilting a few tonight ain't you?
Maybe, thought is was worth a shot!
I'm throwing back a few cold ones and shots of crown, and I'm all in. Now, if we can convince people like Orange & Maroon, we are halfway there. He swears we got the right staff in place, just need to give em time.
I would be shocked to see Beamer make a radical shift in his offensive philosophy and go to the spread. As far as I'm concerned the best we can hope for at this point would be someone who can competently execute a power-run/ball-control offense.
But I do believe he has done some real soulsearching regarding his staff and I believe he will make some changes at the end of this season.JMO
Better be Oline coach
I sure hope this is true...cannot believe the number of years we have had to endure little to no offense, especially against better competition. How can Beamer not see that never with Newsome have we had a decent OL. And why cannot VT execute a passing game? Perhaps and OC and QB coach may have something to do with that?
im ready for beamer and all ostaff to be gone, we will never get any further than where we are, regardless of the players. He has done a lot for the program and taken us to a point most wish to be. I am ready for some fire and passion in this program that has long since gone by the way side, you see it just about every game on the defense, why is it acceptable for our offense year in and year out to look like a bunch of bumbling idiots.
I certainly understand your point and I too believe some staff changes are absolutely merited. Beamer shares a lot of the blame as well. But I also think that a lot of people are quick to recognize Frank's shortcomings and don't give him credit or recognize so many of the things he does really well that have contributed to our special run over the last 20 years. When you look at VT in terms of its specs as a school (location, size, facilities, etc.), it's really not that remarkable when compared to a lot of similar schools that are generally mediocre or widely inconsistent in football. Beamer deserves a huge part of the credit for making the difference IMO, and I don't think it's any guarantee that we improve or even remain level when he retires. Let's not forget that when he retires it will likely mean a wholesale staff shakeup as well, and there is no guarantee that our tremendous defensive staff will remain here either.

Be careful what you wish for, the only reason that some of these really nice recruits we are getting come to VT is to play for Frank Beamer. I understand the frustration but when Frank finally decides to move on we could revert to the 80's Hokies and a lot of our "fans" would promptly disappear. Frank will not run the spread so our only offensive hope is to recruit road grader type Olinemen and go back to the ground and pound.
I tend to agree, only hope with Beamer in charge is a new o-line coach.
