You have no favorite boards.
It is not the players. Yes I saw players do things wrong just like everyone else but we have very good talent on this team.
I am very concerned about coach Beamer. I'm sure many of you are also. As to the rest of the oaching staff I can only offer this as a thought, they all seem to be preoccupied with somthing outside of the day to day job of coaching. I have seen enough to know a little bit about how a coach acts or reacts and they seem to be sleepwalking.
I still contend as I have been, that there are going to be changes afer this season but I am not privy to any information to this end and have no idea what changes will be made. I do not for one minute believe that Cornell's recent jaunt is anything but preplanning. That is just a small part of the whole imo.
While I do not expect a legeand to be replaced or thrown under the bus for the sake of ardent fans, there are ways to handle situations like ours with proper dignity and I would expect nothing less from our school. If our coach feels that he has the answer he deserves the right to prove it. If he's wrong then the proper dignity needs to come forth.
Va Tech knows full well what Coach Beamer has done for our school and that it took 25 years to do it. They are not about to let that go down the tubes.
It"s Deja Vu for the fourth time that I remember of getting beat late in the fourth because of a bad decision by the defensive backs and Bud. There was Donovan McNabb,, Matt Ryan, Kellen Moore and now Munchie Legaux. I can excuse most of the players....they werent around when these spectacular failures occurred but Bud was! Granted , he's never gotten much help from the O but to keep repeating the mistake of not playing effective prevent is piss poor on his part. We also have to be one of the worst defensive units on 3rd and long in Div I. It's hard to fathom how many teams manage a first down against us in 3rd and reeeaallyy long situations. It's pathetic. Are the 3 stooges (O" Cain, Newsome and Stiney) bumbling calls, ineffective push on the line, nonproductive offensive philosophy starting to infect the defensive side of the ball also? Lord help us if that be the case.
