This will not come across good for some. Maybe ok with others. But here goes anyway. Frank needs to look in mirror. His body language is not great at moment. Can new energy change that . I think no! Frank needs to tell Mr Pep Hamilton he is the COACH in Waiting. Frank needs to say I want to coach two more years. THat would allow Hamilton a time to settle in. People we cannot afford the ball to be passed to his son without Shane have Head Coaching experience. BTW Frank doesnt have to tell us of these plans. Just he and Pep.
Why do I like Pep? I just think he may be what it takes to get over the top in the BURG. That does not mean national title. But it does being important on that National front.
Last night.........I been to 3 world fairs, witnessed two elephants on roller skates on I81 but never have I witnessed a ballgame that had that. LOL thank goodness this season is over!
I don't want Shane as the next head coach, but why is Pep more qualified? Two years of being oc, he doesn't have head coaching experience either.
Well I just have a feel VT wil need a guy like Pep. I may be wrong. I have looked at his resume. Like it. Where he is from, Where he has been. Think he would be helluva recruiter with great energy. Plus he has learned from some good one's. Just me!
I don't think Pep needs to be a coach in waiting. I don't even think he needs to be the next OC. What needs to happen is that Beamer has to realize his way of winning 5 - 10 - 20 years ago can't win today. And then he needs to change. And Billy Hite has to GTFO. All this old, geriatric, "we did it this way in the 70's and 80's" has got to go.
David Cutcliffe is about 60, I think. Just 5 years younger than Beamer, and I'd swap Beamer for Cutcliffe in a second. (Hell, even 5 years ago, Beamer seemed listless.) Anybody see his interviews? He knows what's going on and he knows how to get it done. Can you imagine Cutcliffe with VT's talent and Bud Foster as DC? The point of this is not that I want Cutcliffe to replace Beamer, but that an older guy can get the job done with the proper approach to the game. Beamer has to change his approach and this can be fixed. If he doesn't change it up, nothing will get fixed, regardless of the changes that are made.

Welcome to the Terror Dome, baby! Welcome to the Terror Dome!
I have to agree on Cutcliffe. Best coach in ACC
A whole lot of props on this board for guys that haven't done anything. Frank has 21 straight winning seasons and you can't be dumb and do that. VT has been carrying the banner for the ACC the last 8 years and I am sure Frank will do what is necessary to get us back in the hunt.
