Just another reason I love Buzz #Ep1BeyondTheArc

I truly believe recruits will identify with Buzz Williams because of content like this. It's just one more aspect that he has going for him as a coach. GA, Joe Fulce is really tapping into the on-demand media that this current generation of youth thrive on. I will be following this series for sure. Just thought I'd put the forum on to the content just in case you hadn't watched any of the episodes thus far.

I can see that being a hit with the kids today. I even liked it!

I never met a project that couldn't justify a new tool.

buzz is really involved with his players even once they leave. I love that. on his IG all the time he posts little things involving his past players all the time no matter if they are jimmy buckets or shane henry, I love that about him and echo the sentiment above about it really helping him identify with recruits. he really fits the #thisishome motto

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

I didn't realize his graduate assistant was a former player. I wish more GA's would help coaches relate to these croots. I feel like it's a great recruiting tool, these videos are filled with current music, current vibes, and just the overall swag that a coach on his own just doesn't posses. I think this could be used even on the football side of the house as well.

I feel like kids nowadays want to relate to their coaches. They want to feel like their coaches "get them." I can't stand Dabo for the most part, but I feel like he's done this well. My problem has always been that at some point when your coach is trying TOO hard to relate, they look like clowns. So that's why I feel like having a GA who is "in tune with the culture" can really act as a liaison without diminishing the respect that the kids have for their coaches.

Bruce Garner Garnes helps with the management of the team? He's a huge UNC basketball fan. They used to make fun of him and post his picture around Cassel with a caption thanks for the support Bruce.

Was going to post this in my original thread. Totally forgot to. Thanks for adding.

I didn't mean for this thread to turn into a love-fest for Buzz, but I'm big believer that you should appreciate the good things you have in life as well as the bad. And I just think Buzz (not just him alone) is one of those good things that as a alum base, we can truly appreciate.

This post and comments are not getting enough love. Really enjoy seeing the personality of this team and the comradee of this group. I hope there is a UVA game to add

Forget the love, just hope that everyone on the site has at least watched the video. Buzz got a lot of flak earlier this season, and I'm not here to argue whether it's deserved or not, I simply want Hokie nation to take a moment to appreciate the BB coach we've been blessed with. You have other schools that are going through academic scandals or improper sexual relation scandals, but our coach is making men out of boys. Watching these videos make me damn proud that I'm a Hokie.

Thanks so much for sharing, I've enjoyed watching these and getting a better view of the team's (and Buzz's) personality. As a player, it would be so fun to learn from and play for this staff. As an alum, it makes me proud. I share so many of these types of videos, whether football or basketball with non-Hokie friends that they probably loathe me sending them links. But man, I know we have so much to be thankful for!

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

Those non-Hokie fans loathe these videos because they wish they were Hokies too, with the coaches we have. Glad I could share.

Wearing the Beamer shirt made that video some lovely crossover from new VT and classic VT.

Can't wait for the UVA win one.

You AND me, I've been refreshing that twitter feed everyday hoping it shows up.

Buzz and Fuente have definitely filled Frank's shoes pretty well! Proud of our sports programs!!

Another instance of the type of players that Buzz is recruiting. Landers Nolley (top 100/4*) talks about how he chose VT over Georgia because of the reason listed below:

"Virginia Tech is just a better fit for me for where I want to go in life, the staff loves me on AND off the court...they want me to be NOT just a better basketball player, but a better man in life..."

Seems like a good kid with a good stable atmosphere at home. Your typical OKG.
