I haven't read one post in this thread except for the title. No matter the circumstances surrounding his recruitment, good luck to him....hope he has an injury free career and get's his degree.
Cue "George Welsh".
You have had a good run. I would say the UVA coaching staff now at the very least equalsTech in terms of talent. Blue chip players have and continue to line up for UVA over the last three recruiting classes. 2014 might be a historic recruiting class for UVA. Blanding is just the beginning for 2014.
Three bowl wins in 18 years? Two shared ACC titles in 18 years? One 10 win season? Sounds average at best.
Are you sh*tting me?
You have gone completely Arden, congratulations. No wonder this country has went down the shitter, people living in la la land. Come back to reality.
THE ONLY THING I'M ADDICTED TO IS WINNING--CHARLIE SHEEN
You can't cure stupid.
Equal talent might be stretch (still suffering from that 2010 class), but you can't argue that we have narrowed the talent gap
I was under the impression he was trying to say the coaching staffs are equal in talent, not the players.
Oops my bad
Ok lets get real. After all the turnover with the UVA coaching staff how many of you Hokies, as well as many UVA fans, predicted that the firings would decimate our 2013 recruiting class? The job done by the new staff in retaining these recruits was masterful. Many of these recruits stuck because they want to play for Coach London. Now Blanding is on board. Tenuta, TOB, and Fairchild are highly respected coaches in their own right. Can we get some credit where credit is due here?
Don't know much about Fairchild...but Tenuta?...he's ok I guess...Last time we saw him, Sean Glennon torched that Defense down at GT...
credit ? for landing in state prospects ?
I guess when you have sucked forever you search for credit wherever you can get it
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
I would not say sucked forever, but the last 10 years have been frustrating. I hope London can win 5-6 this year and with # 6 being a win over Vt. Fsu fans I would not trust your sources to much when it comes to recruiting the 757. You saw what happened with Blanding. Those kids are very internet savy and read alot of these boards. So, keep on bad mouthing them and see how many you get. Look at Vt now. Sure Vt will get some but then again they may not.
One thing's for sure, London won't be able to use the "you don't wanna play for a bunch of old white guys do you?" line any more with recruits. That right there is an indication these hires were forced on London.
Doesn't hurt that that there are a few Hoo posters who are close to those kids that have an agenda and run their printer till it runs out of ink. Lots of Hoos masquerading as Hokies on our board too.
UVA is a pathetic joke, fans that are as heinous as their program is bad.
Stop trying to offset how pathetic your fans are. I have been told by several people that UVA fans make scrap books of every negative comment said and they then give it to recruits. Second of all I haven't seen anyone bad mouthing recruits. We are talking about how UVA has no history, has a horrible coach, and will go 3-9 again next year.
Please talk about how your education is better, 5* recruits what that education instead of facilities and coaches that can send them to the league. At least Stanford is competitive in a far better division and conference with a better education.
UVA will have a new coaching staff come Christmas so I am not worried at all. If Blanding won't be given any support to find the best program for him we just have to wait until UVA has a clean house and FSU can pay for the trip down here.
You want eveidence about bad mouthing recruits from Fsu fans? Go read what some fsu fans said about Blanding when he committed to Uva. No idea why your attacking me. If you read my post I stated 5-6 wins with the 6th possibly being a win over Vt.
Stanford became better in the last 6-7 years. I do not need to talk about Uva education, it speaks for itself.
Uva will NOT have a new staff by Xmas either unless London goes 0-12 and I doubt that happens.
The scrapbooks are very real... and its not just by fans.
On a side note, I see PlayaHtr ran from this thread like a little girl once I proved he was talking out his @ss.... once again.

I didn't run from the thread, I've been posting in the rivalry thread, I didn't know there was anything left to talk about in this thread, Blanding to UVA has been played out. On to another topic. You can't fade me!!
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
There's plenty to talk about.... like how you said FSU's OOC schedules are awful
