OT: VT group gets 1st place in NASA challenge

Completely OT, but I love seeing our school in the news for some pretty awesome things...the fact that UVA got third is a little disappointing, but consolation is to see them both on the same list with VT on top.

Anyone else that like Aeronautics/Aerospace?

VT gets first place.

OT: Cheating to win

With the articles about UNC and other things passing around, I thought this article from the APA might be interesting. Athletes operating under abusive coaches are more apt to cheat in order to win. Not a stretch in any way to believe as I'm sure there's a lot of perceived pressure to win, and when not handled correctly...

It would be like the kid whose parents want them to succeed in school, but pressure them through violence or threat of violence for doing poorly.

OT: Eli Wallach Dies at 98

We're in the VT Sports summer doldrums right now, and I know we all love our Spaghetti Western GIFs when they pop up for various reasons, so I thought I'd mention this topic. Eli as Tuco in "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" was just a great movie character. Eli did a great job selling that role in that movie. I don't remember him as much in "The Magnificant Seven" which is also a great movie, but he wasn't as much a central character there.

98, wow, any of us can only hope to live that long. He had been married to his wife for 66 years! That is something. Obviously Eli Wallach believed in his family and lived that until his death. An example for us all. Celebrate a great entertainer. I'll leave you with these:

Ticket sales to football games

Yahoo had a link to a new article out today talking about Michigan's ticket sales and the trend that's been hitting the nation. I know TKP had discussed it at one point last year, but the article brings up some good points. It's a little long winded, but covers a few different things.

Would winning a super bowl as a back up cement Mike Vick legacy in the NFL?

Mike Vick has once again stated on national media that he revolutionized the game as a QB in the NFL. He claimed to be the one that started it all. I totally agree with Mike Vick. He is a once-in-a-lifetime QB.
Mike Vick also said winning a super bowl would cement his legacy even as a back up to Geno Smith:

US Open - former Hokie Brendon deJonge

Into day two and former Hokie, and Zombabwean, Brendon deJonge is playing a great round. Sitting in 2nd place, 5 strokes behind the leader Martin Kaymer.

There is still a lot of golf to play, but here's to hoping BdJ holds on and finishes the weekend very well.

UF WR coach resigns

so news for today is that Joker Phillips has resigned as WR coach at UF and Chris Leak will take over. Crazy to think that an ex QB will now coach WR's, wonder what effect that will have on any of the incoming WR's and '15 WR's.

Any thoughts from TKP.. any potential VT targets?
