London finished 4-8 in his 3rd year of "Building of a Program", and that resulted in the Hoos hiring a mentor for him in TOB. With year four possibly no better, and with sagging attendance, you can bet your ass London's seat is hot as has been reported, despite what Baghdad Bob Oliver says. While VT may have an empty trophy case, it's got others with ACC Champion as well as BCS Bowl Championships. UVA won't even get to the ACCCG with the bar set at 7-8 wins. Really, you're going to build a program for five years or longer, and that's all you hope for?
Ahhh that's too bad. I assumed it was you because how masterfully it's been executed.
Might want to look at the schedule again 2015-2017 will play 3 tough OOC games. Conneticut isn't a slouch, 2015 even though it isn't listed in the season ticket information from last year stated we would play in the Chik Fil A Kickoff game to start out 2015.
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
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.
Ok we'll look.
2015 listed is (I'll believe you'll play Auburn when it's on UVAs schedule somewhere, not message board chatter)
William & Mary
2017 - You're only strong year of scheduling
Congrats you have 1 strong year. In 2004 and 2010 we played 2 OOC RANKED opponents in the regular season. Let me know when you can say that.
2016 is the year we are going to be @ Penn State to make up this years game they didn't want to play us while on probation, they are off probation in 2016.
lmao, them getting off probation the year you play them is the best time to play them
You don't just turn into a good team the year you get off sanctions of their nature, that will be one of the worst teams in PSU history
Now if you played them 3-4 years after 2016, then you could brag about going into Happy Valley and playing a true PSU football team
Playa I'll believe any of what you say after the game is played. Moral of the story is you're school is accepting an average product and looking for a place to blame. To be successful you need to win 7-8 games, per your AD, and you couldn't do that when you have the easiest schedule in the ACC (No FSU or Clemson, instead you had Wake and UMD last year). What makes you, me, or any recruit in the country think you can do it when you actually play a tough schedule?
Answer : Not a god damn thing
You hung a curve ball dumbass
I see your still trolling the thread, this was Penn State's choice not UVA's we were supposed to play them this year and they wanted to re-scheudle to 2016.
probably because they think they can beat you coming off of probation and wins will be hard to find that year?
More power to them, they are even telling recruits that they are gonna get it overturned anyway after this upcoming season, since the Attorney General in PA is sueing the NCAA. At least that is what they are telling Jerimiah Clarkes family.
1) I like the guy. He's fine in my books but I understand why some VT fans dont think highly of JO
2) We have our fair share of complete idiots as well
But my gosh the way most of your board sucks up to and worships Jamie Oakes is almost sickening.
IMO they will move it again, but it is easier to move it from 2013 to 2016 than to 2019. They will be garbage in 2016, total garbage.
On the Clark front, I would be happy more hats are in the ring if I were UVA and UVA thinks this is between UVA and PSU. More people telling Clark that PSU is pipe dreaming to get sanctions lifted the better if I'm UVA.
You have to realize with JO, those of us that have been with him for the past 7 years with Rivals and 247 not to mention all the tailgating, beer drinking and such have a bigger connection to him than most of your crew has for your sites mods the Scoop has only been around for 15 months while Wahoo's 247 is almost 3 years old. And when you spent the past 7 years getting the best damn scoop on what's really going on with recruits and his track record is 95% accurate, you would feel strongly about your guy too.
And, he's a little different now that he gets info straight from the UVA Staff. That isn't a bad thing, but know this: he gets info straight from the UVA staff, and he has a seemingly direct line to anyone at the 757 Academy...again not a bad thing. But just keep it in mind when reading his articles and be conscious of the timing of articles. London is much better at utilizing the available resources to promote all avenues UVA. Which is very smart. No one has a better reputation and opportunity to get in front of recruits like JO does, which of course can be very helpful. IMO VT needs a guy to be a JO and they need to utilize that person in a similar manner. We finally got a full time guy, but it will take years to get as connected as JO is.
JO writes for our rival, but I have never had an issue with an article he has written, I haven't always liked them, but he's very good at his job.
I spoke to his family at the spring game, just happened to sitting in front of us for about a half hour until the spring game started. PSU would be a serious player and would probably be the favorite if it weren't for the sanctions, hats of to Larry Johnson Sr for still making him consider them he really likes him. When it's all said and done he will be at UVA according to his family. He is a big kid and according to the family he has a little brother who is even better than he is.
One question. You don't think your guys are getting information from the VT coaching staff? While JO may get information from the UVA staff now that London is the HC, he still busts his ass to get other sources from the players themselves, family members, and high school coaches, You don't think 5284 isn't getting his information straight from Shane? I would much rather have JO than your guys, I know for a fact they lead you guys at times so the roof don't cave in when they are asked about bad news about certain recruits. For example Jaylen Holmes, he isn't going to VT, he isn't going to UVA either. Most people on other sites are all over it and even his friends know, trust me they have tried like hell to get him to UVA, but the Scoop still acts like you guys are serious players in his recruitment and it's just not true, unless somebody can come in and change his mind right now it will be either Florida State or UNC.
I don't know where to start with this...
a) Hoos don't drink beer
b) Our mods have been with a VT site one way or another for over a decade (24/7 and Rivals)
c) 95% accuracy is a little bit of an exaggeration
d) "best damn scoop on what's really going on with recruits" made me fall out of my chair laughing
Of course our guys get info from the staff...big difference, they aren't writing articles as article, they post inside information. I know JO does everything he should be in establishing other sources, as I said, he's the best going.
Holmes, I'll let actions speak for themselves. This is a very smart and savvy young man.
I do drink beer but like some good Crown Royal and Wild Turkey 101 better. Unless you have been a paying member to either site in the past 7 years you don't have a clue just how right he has been. HNB has been a paying member on both sites and he knows how good JO is, although his tune has changed because he has a grudge against THE sports academy and JO pretty much can call them and get information at anytime.
You have been a paying member on the 247 site, Give me examples of JO writing what he told to write. You can even go back to last football season at look at some of his analysis reports on the football team and I can promise you CML or his staff didn't ask him to write any critisism of the program which he did on a couple of occasions.
As far as Holmes is concerned not saying he isn't very smart and savvy, but you guys have about as much as we which is slim to none and slim is getting ready to open the door and leave.
Ugggggh....this thread is a broken record. Same tired arguments over and over. Let's discuss something new shall we. What is everyone's HONEST, NON-BIASED, prediction for this years VT-UVA football game? I'll go first...
