    Hey drunk, how'd THAT go down your alcohol-laced throat? You're one of the most obnoxious self-absorbed axles on here. And EVERYBODY knows when you've been drinking. One-word sentences. And. (like that)

    ^^^^

    Good luck to your guys as well, Hokie - they can beat the Deacs, but we never know who is going to show up for our teams this year.

    PS: 66 is the new 40:)

    Beamer is only 66. All that I have wanted was for him to finally do something with a few coaches. They have obviously put some heat on him to make a move. Beamer has won a bunch of games with pretty strong talent. We slipped a little this year. Our FG kicker saved us in a few games. Good luck to the Heels today. I hope VT can beat the Deacs.

    When I heard during the DG show last week that Thomas was announcing his decision, I thought he was going to leave, which would indicate that maybe there was something going on behind closed doors. Since he's decided to stay, maybe Beamer has worked things out with his coaching staff? Hopefully Thomas have a better season next year. Beamer looks like he still has some good years left in him, he's younger than Bowden was when he was forced out, and it doesn't look like the game has passed him by, but that's only my opinion as someone very much on the outside looking in.

    Maybe I was overzealous. I'm glad Thomas is back. My entire premise is that Beamer has allowed 3 coaches to slow this program down. People have been on him for a long time because of these guys. People here in the know at VT talk to me. I also know about UNC, Duke, State and others. Sorry. I should have stated this entirely differently. My apology to all in this one.

    I never claimed to know more than you or anyone about VT, just as you don't know more than anyone about Carolina. This forum is here for us to express our opinions; nothing more, nothing less, other than some that like to talk smack. You tell us to "read and comprehend", I said in my post that, "I sure as heck don't know, but Beamer seems like a good man." "I sure as heck don't know" should have been a clue that I was expressing an opinion, not what I believed to be a fact. Practice what you preach: read and comprehend.

    ^^^Beamer has done a great job. He however has allowed a few of his coaches to slip. He finally hired a new OC this past week. People have been on him for 10 years to replace Steinspring. O'Cain is another. Our OL coach is pretty weak too. I think he is going to James Madison. VT has won a bunch of games under Beamer.

    What team has slipped as far as VT? I'd have to say a lot of them. While only winning 7 games after eight straight seasons of double digit wins is disappointing, it hardly qualifies as grounds for dismissal. We're talking about a guy that has taken his team to 20 consecutive bowls. He has won 70% of his games during that stretch. He has had 13 seasons with 10 or more wins.

    How has he done this at a school that has no natural recruiting advantages, competing against both the SEC and ACC for players? One way that has often been cited as one of the main reasons for VT's success is the stability of their coaching staff and Beamer's loyalty to them. Now, all of a sudden, loyalty to assistants is cited as the reason they failed to win 10 games for the first time in nine years.

    Maybe it is time for Beamer to retire. But I think I need a little more evidence than a single seven win season to convince me.

    LOL, you really need to stop posting when you are drinking because every time you do, you look like a complete and total idiot.

    And that does not even begin to describe your inferiority complex that shows when you are drunk, but I digress.

    Maybe AA can help you get a handle on that problem of yours?

    Just a suggestion.
