    IT'S not the word that is offensive, apparently WRAL has picked up that as a human being he is offensive and lower level totem pole in the evolutionary chain. Thus, his very name is deemed unpostable. Much like in his real life females find him undateable.

    Search committees are hired to keep the search quiet more than to find and acquire targets.

    I took that comment to be a dig at DY, not a serious definition of "perennial".

    Just saying that even high profile schools hire search committees when they desire secrecy.

    I only went back 10 years, since that's how long the BCS rankings had 25 teams instead of 15. Only four schools had more top 25's (9) than VT (8) during that span. Boise, LSU, Oklahoma and Texas.

    Using the final AP poll for the 5 years before that, VT moves up to second place (13 appearances) behind only Texas (14). Florida, Georgia and Oklahoma had 12 each. Ohio State had 10, as did Boise State. But Boise's first ever top 25 was in 2002 (they were in the FCS until 1998), so they have gone 10/11 since they broke through.

    In any case, VT is in rarefied air when it comes to consistency, even if they are rarely a NT contender. But before 1998, they kind of fall off the map. Only under Beamer have they had much success. For me, perennial also implies over decades, not just years. If you look at who was contending for national champions over the last fifty years, you will see the same names as those who were doing it for the fifty years before that. Schools like Notre Dame, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio St, USC and the like.

    You can call someone "optimistic" if they think State or Carolina could ever achieve that. The word I'd use is "nuts". :)

    Historically when you talk about schools with a winning football program, names like Oklahoma, Alabama, Ohio St, even Penn State (before Sanduskys tarholing of the program) would inevitably come up in the conversation. I think Yow wants to create a program that reaches beyond the ACC. Will we ever be a USC, Michigan or Notre Dame type program? Who knows, but I am hopeful for better,just like I was with Amato, Obrian, and will be for (insert new coach here).

    Hasn't VT been that consistent until this year? Seems they have won 9-10 games every year for some time.
