Thanks to Bill anyone who missed the behind the scenes look at the Hokies can rewatch it.
I enjoyed every minute of the program, even though I didn't learn anything about scheme or personnel.
A few thoughts:
- Bryan Stinespring is still here. Of course he is dummy. Stiney was surprisingly vocal when working with the tight ends in individual. I had pegged him as a more mellow coach.
- There were a few jabs at D.J. Coles' weight and gut. It's nothing new that Beamer Co. wanted him to shed some pounds since spring, but it's entertaining to see both Coach Beamer and Moorehead needle him.
- "KNOCK, CHOP, GET DOWN." "KNOCK, CHOP, SWIM IT." Cornell's 30 seconds of airtime was gold. The Whips are unproven and lacking depth, but glass half full: each player is receiving more coaching from Cornell. That happens when there are only 3 players working in individual.
- The punting segment was my favorite part. Most of the time it's Frank Beamer the CEO, not coach, on the TV or talking. That's not to say he's not coaching on game days, it's quite the opposite, but we're not there riding along shotgun. However, seeing Frank the teacher, working and joking around with the punters makes Jack Tyler's quote at the end, "He relates so well even though he may be up there in age, I can say he's 22-year-old at heart," and similar ones I've heard before, resonate more.
- "He's still from West Virginia." Boom.
