Bruce Feldman, Pep is meeting with Tech Today

Will Beamer land the big fish?


Press Conference

If the rumor was true that he had already been in town for an interview and he is currently meeting with us today, could we see a 4PM press conference and the answer to our prayers?

Scratch that

Apparently the meeting is in Nashville.

please please please please

Saw this on the tweeter and my response was the following:

I'd like to nominate this comment for induction into The Key Play Comment Hall of Fame. Thank you for making my day, Barek.

This hire would be "$%&ing the prom queen."

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

I think

anyone following this stuff is probably sitting at the computer, mindlessly hitting a refresh button, while the feeling slowly drains from their feet and the drool starts to run down the side of their chin. So much for my productivity....and pass me a tissue, my shirt collar is getting wet.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

that would be me haha

I second that.


my feet are going to sleep.

I'm in the tub (hungover) ...but I'm hitting the refresh button on my iPhone like there's no tomorrow!

oh yeah, guess I'm kind of new here. well, I'm a big time lurker.

names Reese, everyone.


I'm also a Jenks. When did u graduate?
And about today...we're looking good from my understanding. Pep has admitted to loving DC and the east coast, if the money's right, and he's given keys to the car, lets roll...Bama that is. Go Hokies

If it ain't orange, it better be maroon...and if it ain't maroon, it better be soon!

Never actually

I never actually went to Virginia Tech, just born a fan I suppose. I thought about going at one point, but I joined the Air Force not too long after graduating high school and have been stationed down here in Louisiana ever since. (yes...SEC country...unbearable)

I'm really hoping we get Pep Hamilton, he leads the exact kind of offense that Virginia Tech is about.

Roger that

Good luck to you in the Air Force. I'm currently residing in Colorado Springs, just minutes away from the Air Force Academy. If you get a chance to check it out, it's beautiful. I agree on Pep; lets see if any news breaks this week.

If it ain't orange, it better be maroon...and if it ain't maroon, it better be soon!


Tub lurking is some dedicated lurking, glad you decided to say hello. Don't drop your iPhone in the water.


I didn't drop the phone in the tub. All is well. But I'm still waiting for some good news!!

Bud Foster and Pep Hamilton sound like a pretty good team to me.

i'll chip in!

This would be a huge get for us. I would actually be excited about next season.

My first post by the way. Registered right before the season started, but my enthusiasm declined for some reason...

so let's say this is all true

Not totally sold on it yet, but we obviously all have the time to hypothesize here.

If Pep Hamilton were to be hired, the guy is an extremely hot commodity right now and Beamer has to know that. Do you think he's making a one last run at it type of deal? Beamer has obviously always been a stickler for consistency and this type of hire would go totally against that.

Thoughts on how long you think he'd stay? If he's gone in one/two year(s), is that still positive for the program? Has Beamer been keeping up on TKP and knows that beating Alabama = becoming God?

I tend to agree. Frankie knows he won't be coaching for a whole lot longer and so is going for broke. I just hope it works.

I drank a glass of water, and I'm going to temper my expectations for now. If we don't land Pep, for whatever reason, I'll still be happy because Beamer tried to make the power move and it seems that some sort of change is happening.


this was my thought exactly. POWER MOVES.


Like these

I am officially losing it waiting for these coaching changes.


Track one is dedicated to Pep
Track two is for Stiney
Track three for Key Players if none of these coaching moves actually happen

Track 4

to Beamer - from O'cainspring

First day of classes today. Thank heavens it's just syllabi.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.


Do you go to Tech? Classes don't start until the 22nd.

Nope. Community. Just applied to transfer.

Good luck in class man, hope to see you around campus one day soon then!

Thanks, I hope so too.

All work productivity just went down the drain, please let today be the day

Don't ever let the pressure exceed the pleasure. - Joe Maddon

I'm not expecting it to be, not with the National Title game being tonight.

Rip his freaking head off!

The rest of my day

...will be sitting on the computer destroying my F5 key.

"Tyrone is a strong, quick guard with a complete skill set."
Your comment made me look him up to see if he was still playing and this was a quote from his current coach. Sad part is, we could use him...or harrell....or alan chaney...or really anyone that has left at this point.

Haha, Ty Garland has been lighting it up for La Salle here in Philly the last few weeks. So much so the President of my firm came up to me a few days ago to ask me about the "little guard from VPI that looks like that "Little" Wayne guy"

Think since they are meeting in Nashville that is because Pep also has (had) meeting with some NFL teams? It was being thrown out first that there were NFL teams interested in him.


They're in Nashville for the American Football Coaches Association Conference. But who knows, he was the OC for DA BEARS for two years...

He wasn't an OC, just QBs coach.

Although any NFL experience is good experience.

This cat is run-heavy, smash mouth football. This fits Beamers wish list to a T. If we can land him, can u imagine VT of old? Edmunds and Harris truckin' Bama players as if they were speed bumps. We need to get someone that can motivate and use the likes of Benedict and Gibson. Now is the time Hokie Nation. Get Pep and take the next step. 2013 and '14 will be years to remember!

If it ain't orange, it better be maroon...and if it ain't maroon, it better be soon!


Thats the year I'm looking forward too

"Go Hokies!" - Thomas Jefferson

Put Pep in our step!! I'll

Put Pep in our step!!

I'll shut up now.

Pass the Pep!


The type of offense Hamilton would run, perfectly complements the VT defense. We need to land this man as OC!

Sports Illustrated and

have apparently caught on, pretty sure the major publications wouldn't put anything out that isn't at least somewhat reputable...

I'll believe when I see it

Someone has to step up to challenge Saban and 'bama. Coaches are the first step. Then a top recruiting class. Saban is eating everyone's lunch right now.
