    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.

    OK. You are about a few months late on this one. I wrote this back in August 2012. Do you think you know more about VT than I do on here DooksucksV3? I doubt it. We lost a truck load of people. I read Jgunn, and and the rest. They don't know any more than you do. You just read the Bleacher Report.

    "Blaming Thomas alone for what happened is foolish and short sighted." From Roswell, NM.

    Man. Get a grip. You have already influenced enough people already that don't know jack about Virginia Tech. I know VT. I talk to people from VT here in my County. I had season tickets long before this Sportsfan deal. You don't know the inside track of VT do you? Do you?

    Don't come on here and try to sound like you know the deal at VT. I burned 4 years traveling 2 hours one way. 3 in the classroom. That's 7 hours. Don't come on here and even do this like you know the deal. I wrote this during the pre-season. You can influence some. Not me. I wrote this back during the summer. You don't even know Beamer nor VT. Write about UNC, Duke, NC State. You don't know about VT. I'm right.

    Just saw this, jgunn. May be a situation where he just had a bad season. Like you pointed out, there could be some stuff going on that we're not hearing about. They've had a lot of success in the past and I would be surprised if they don't turn things around in the near future.

    I'm glad that Thomas is back. I just hope that our OC Scot Loeffler can do the job. He isn't all that much in some reports that I've read. A load of mixed reviews. If they didn't hire the best because of money; I will be let down again. It's time for our AD to retire. He blew the deal with firing Greenberg. Beamer has players. Coaching and acting like Bobby Bowden is the real story. Coach them up Beamer. Close it out on a postive note.

    I wrote this before the season even began. I know more about VT than anyone on here. I read the Bleacher Report too. I also read 3 newspapers out of VA. Logan can be a special player in his Sr. year if he listens. Beamer will have to win a bunch this year. I wrote all about having 4 new OL's before the season even bagan. Give credit. I could list all of the ones that left after last season. I know this stuff.

    You nailed this one. I wish Seth could have played for VT--for sure. Could have been a few more wins for VT.

    The problem with the Currys was they were small and thin coming out of high school. I think Stephen grew 5 inches after he got to Davidson so obviously no major BCS program could have seen that coming. But with Seth, it wasn't just Greenberg that overlooked him despite what Stephen did. Even McKillop passed on him and let him go to Liberty, despite his direct knowledge of what his brother could do.

    Beamer has been too loyal to a few of his coaches. Beamer is a great guy too. He finally hired a new OC this week. Scot Loeffler has coached at Auburn and Florida, and a few other places. I hope he can get it going. Our OL coach is supposed to be going to James Madison. Steinspring will coach TE's.

    Virginia Tech lost 8 starters on offense including 4 lineman last season.
    Blaming Thomas alone for what happened is foolish and short sighted.

    Beamer doesn't seem like he's past his prime, though, and that's what's so strange here. There must be something going on behind closed doors that we don't know about. People thought Foster was the heir apparent, but I heard on ESPN radio recently that that isn't the case. I sure as heck don't know, but Beamer seems like a good man surrounded by some coaches on the offensive side of the ball that should be fired.

    I didn't know Greenberg was responsible for the Curry brothers not playing at VT. Wow. Seth did blow it with them. You'd think after he passed on Stefan, he would have given Seth a second look.

    They were talking about Thomas on the DG show yesterday after Thomas said he had made a decision about next year. Some thought he was leaving, and if he did go, I thought something had happened between Thomas and the coaching staff at VT. He had such a good sophomore year and tanked last year. I thought there was bad blood, but since he's returning, I guess that isn't the case. Like Dooksucks said, there can be big improvement between junior and senior seasons.

    As far as basketball goes, Seth Greenberg ignored dell curry not once but twice when he tried to tell him his two sons were the real deal. Of course, every other coach in the acc missed on them in high school too. But I'm sure Seth Greenberg regrets those passes more than the others since vt was their dream school.

    What team has slipped as far as VT lately? Beamer and our AD should bow out gracifully. Beamer. I would like to tell him one time in person...how he allowed our school to go down this quickly. Beamer and I have talked 3 times since 05 in person. So what? He hasn't done a quality job lately. He's a rich man. Win or go to the damm house. Weaver and Beamer should leave VT after the upcoming season. Beamer is clinging for his job right now. Good. Finally he's feeling some heat.

    Good info., Hokie. Unfortunately, a lot of good coaches seem to hang around until they are shown the door. Better to go out on top versus fading away. Nice tradition & too much pride in the football program for VT to stay down too long.

    OK Battling. Glad I caught this one. Logan Thomas was the biggest choke QB in all of Division I last year. He was supposed to be a top 5 NFL draft choice. He didn't do anything. Our FG kicker saved VT in 4-5 games. I put it all on Frank Beamer for not playing Mark Lail. He played Thomas when he didn't deliver. 15 Int's. Ol Frank didn't have the nuttzs to question our OC, nor our dismal play caller in O'Cain. Frank Beamer used to be tough. He is close to Bobby Bowden now. It's time for him to bow out. I truly hate that VT has slipped in both football and basketball. I credit our AD for not doing a damm thing for our basketball program after firing Seth in May. If you are going to fire a coach, fire them when you can hire a decent coach. We lost two solid players after our AD waited so long.

    It's time for Beamer to retire after this season. I don't care if we win the ACC Championship. It's time.
