So we are only ever going to talk football huh? You guys Def have us for awhile in fball, but I take the whole rivalry thing for all the programs, or at least the top five....
High 5. +1 It can be done.
Excuse me, while I hit this sky hook.
No time! I have a bottle of merlot to get!
My dog is named Dutch and I named him after Arnold's character from Predator.
Couldn't agree more with the upvotes and downvotes. You are going to have to personally attack another poster, players, or coaches. I will never downvote an opinion whether I agree or disagree.
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
I'll get this started, agree or disagree I have told this theory to alot of people but I think the run of VT wins in this series boils down to VT in the past 10 years has had alot more VA kids on their roster than UVA. I think with UVA getting more and more in-state kids again since London's been hired is going to make this rivalry mean more to the UVA kids. It's going to make this rivalry alot better all around and will mean more hopefully on a national stage in the next 5 years. God knows the ACC needs to start doing better on the national stage.
Not bad. On our way to a 100 post first day. At this rate we should catch Michigan-Michigan State by 2018.
Been a good day now time for a contest...who has the hotter girls! Pics are a must and well that's the only rule. Pics or gtfo!
I'd agree to an extent, the best thing about recruiting in state consistently is that you have relationships with the coaches in the state that have been built over years so you get the heads up on certain players, good and bad, for kids on their teams and on other teams.
The further away form home you go the less intel you are going to have access too...and the more the state schools in those areas likely will have. There are outliers of course, we have certain coaches with great relationships in other markets, like I'm sure you all do.
I know you all hate it but I really do pay attention to how many kids we win in head to head recruiting battles with you guys, It matters to me if we pull more kids than you all that we both offer. Back in 2008 (I think it was 08) I said Al was done, it was the year that you all didn't have one kid in your class with a VT offer, and we cleaned up on in-state kids....that is a big deal. Now I am also not blind to the fact that you all are likely going to offer a few more kids than we are in the state, you need to after Al burned nearly every bridge in the state...so if we get 12 kids you your 7 that we go head to head for (I don't know the number)...it is likely a bit closer than that....and wouldn't London be pretty stupid not to offer kids that VT has been taking and beating his ass with?
You all are also suffering Al's slash and burn his last 2 years when he knew he was on a short leash and killed the program by burning every RS he could...that will take a few more years to recover from.
sup man ? You and Kevin gonna be ready for the upcoming season ?
They do have some nice ones. I see them on a daily basis
Oh yeah practice started this week so it's exciting. I'll be in Clearwater Bch Florida this week and we should get rolling after that. First scrimmage is against EC Glass the 10th and Kevin should be on scene for that. Then it's Brookville scrum on the 17th and then it's go time. Kevin had an ex player tell him that this is "the best team in FC history". The kid is a Hokie so I took it with a grain of salt. When are you getting down for a game?
I think one of the main differences is that Mike doesn't care what the pipeline says or who your brother is or who you grow up a fan of. If he wants you, he's going to go after you. A big difference over the prior regime. Al conceded way too much territory. Hell, X Adibi was the #3 kid in the state and we didn't offer because Nat was at Tech. How do you just concede the #3 kid in the state without a fight.
Al did have issues with admissions because he burned so many academic and administrative bridges. So he couldn't go after some in-state kids. London has made sure going to class and studying is a priority and so he's built up some equity with admissions. But you get that when your team has the highest cumulative team GPA in 20 years. That's important to the academic folks.
As far as your last statement, your exactly right. We've probably got two more years of needing to play trues. But wholesale Rsing is coming.
Man that would be great if true about the team. Gonna try and get down there maybe 3rd home game. I need to check the schedule. But I will hit you up and let you know when exactly
Well I guess I know who the former player is, I will trust what he says
are we making fun of eat other yet? somebody pm me when the thread goes to hell.
Wait 'til the Teller decision comes down. It won't be pretty here.
Without the 2 LCDs from the RMB this thread has a chance... For a while. All the good posters from cc and hh are on 247, so even when it digresses it should come back around
Nah wont be much of a fight from us Hokies if he goes to UVA.. Not a surprise at all.
i don't believe you
Is the far right picture in your sig an old guy trucking a little kid? lol
Playa, my man! You are right in my eyes, I feel the same way. Going to all the games as a kid in the 90s man it seemed like the rivalry was pretty solid then and both schools were littered with VA guys. I posted this when London was first hired, that when he started to get VA guys again, this rivalry was going to start heating up more and more per year. Although there are a lot of guys that played together and such from both schools, there is also a lot of kids that lost to each other, or just for the rivalry stakes cant stand each other's school, and its going to be pretty awesome to watch! Five years ago Tech would run out on the field and they were probably like who the hell are you....now they will know a lot of our guys whether they like or not...just boil up!!!
