Bruce Feldman profiled Logan Thomas. By now, most of you know Thomas' story: tight end to quick learning, sucessful quarterback. Even though the narrative remains unchanged, it's great to see LT3 get national attention.
Mike Barber wrote a nice Father's Day piece on Frank and Shane Beamer. Both Beamers seem to hint that the next coach is already on the current staff. That doesn't surprise me considering the Frankinator's loyalty to his staff and the family-like atmosphere of the program. When the time comes, I'm in favor of a national search. That effort may find Shane or Torrian, my one and two respectively from the current staff, as the best candidate. Keep in mind, this will probably be Jim Weaver's replacement's hire.
Drew Harris to prep at FUMA? It was up in the air whether or not he'd qualify for a little while now, and it sounds like he won't be in Blacksburg this fall. We'll know for certain when July comes and goes and he's enrolled at Tech or not. If he preps, that's one less back competiting and pushing the bunch this August. Will Jerome Wright still greyshirt? Will Trey Edmunds entrench himself at tailback?
David Wilson is endearing himself to his new New York Giants teammates and coaches.
"I don't know if we've had a guy as explosive — regardless of the position — here," Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said as mini-camp ended Thursday.
Justin Tuck described Wilson as a, "one-cut-hit-the-hole kind of back". He sees him daily in practice, but my guess is he hasn't seen a lot of Wilson's film from last year. If Wilson focusses less on the big play, and more on the yards on the field, his combination of size and speed will allow him to have a ton of NFL success.
I'm out of town for the next few days. If you have ever felt compelled to write something, I'll keep an eye out for new blog posts. Produce something well written that everyone will enjoy, and I'll bump it to the front page.
