"UVA dysfunction"

http://blogs.roanoke.com/insiders/2013/07/notebook-plus-tech-uva-in-mix-...

Good article from Doug Doughty from The Roanoke Times on BJ Farrow, an under-the-radar WR recruit from Lynchburg Christian Academy (same as Demetri Knowles). He'll be at VT's camp this weekend, and LCA's Coach Rocco is raving about him as the "best WR he's coached in 10 years".

Yes, Coach Rocco is Mike Rocco's dad, and had some interesting insight on the Phillips Sims transferring to UVA / WTF QB Rotation / Mike Rocco transferring out of UVA / Phillip Sims leaving UVA fiasco.

Remaining Recruiting Class

....2014 could still very well be one of VT's best recruiting classes. We have an opportunity to fill several need positions with very high quality players with the remaining scholarships we have available. We have a reasonable shot to land the following players that we are pursuing:

It's Hard to Recruit When....

Alabama's new locker room features an ARCADE???

I will always love our work ethic when it comes to football. All this relaxation for Bama should be enough for us to #BEATBAMA!

Here is an instagram video of Bama offensive tackle Brandon Hill.

Oh and here's that new waterfall they installed that Cornwell talked about:

Colt Pettit is a Hokie

Editor's note: Hokie Wartooth was all over this as my head was buried underneath a remote desktop connection configuring the new server (8 cores, 16 GBs of ram!). HokieHaven.com spoke with Pettit—he lauds Tech, and says he's firm on his commitment. Pettit's versatility on the field is impressive, and so are offers from Harvard and Yale. Brains and physical tools are the ultimate combination in football. Finally, how about the job Jeff Grimes is doing on the recruiting trail?

More thoughts on recruiting vs UVA

I entered VT as a freshman in 2004. I came from out of state, and was told of the rivalry with UVA, but had never experienced it in person. Regardless, I left thanksgiving break early and headed back to Blacksburg in time for my first Commonwealth Cup. The campus was buzzing. Everyone was fired up. I was fired up. Both teams were ranked, and the Hokies won 24-10. Hooray, in-state rivalries. It was fun, and I looked forward to the energy and excitement that the Commonwealth Cup brought in future years.

My sophomore year we won 52-14.

So what exactly is the deal with Drew Harris?

I've heard that in May he was solid with VT, then he got an FSU offer, and he's since been moved to being a 2014 recruit with like five other offers. What's the latest? Will he actually be able to come to Blacksburg in 2014?

What Is a Hokie Anyway?

With pursed lips and a last few well placed strokes of my forest green crayon I realized I had just finished a masterpiece. Age 8, and the best T-Rex ever seen stood out on a piece of lined paper made for learning to write out upper and lower-cased words in cursive. Following my lead and shared admiration, my mom took the precious canvas and adorned it upon the fridge next to a scribbled grocery list shortly after getting home that day.
