Hoppel was a Class of 2016 signee- a former 3-star OT from Suffolk, VA. Impacts our depth on the O-line.

Perhaps he was buried on the depth chart and would not have gotten any playing time.

He was.

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

Wow Sean Savoy is up to 199 lbs? Solid. What did he weigh last year?

Fifty thousand people used to live here. Now it’s a ghost town.

He was listed as 188 lbs last year.

So next year he'll be 11010?

I doubt that he'll lose 10101101 lbs in a year.

This comment is criminally underrated.

Of course a comment like this would come from someone with an XKCD panel as their avatar.

He'll lose it all in camp though. Specialty players always try to bulk in the summer and just end up losing 10 lbs in camp.

What's
Important
Now

has him at 192 now

1-0 every week

Probably went to taco bell for dinner last night.

so does that mean he lost weight from spending all night on the john or he gained weight from eating a taco 12 pack?

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Hahaha

I'm suggesting that he lost 7 lbs from the taco bell squirts. Thanks for clarifying :)

Yes, but your order is wrong.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

I'm excited to see what Farley and Hazelton bring to the table, heard about their talent but haven't been able to see it translate to the field.

Looks good to see all of our DE's 240lb and above. Wish House would put on a few more pounds but obviously more worried about our DT's.

Our WR's are BIG this year with Kumah, Hazelton, and Kaleb Smith over 205 lbs and even Savoy is right at 200 lbs, hopefully he stays fast.

Ironic a guy named "House" needs to add weight.

Small houses are all the rage these days.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Quincy Patterson II got 2" shorter! Everybody panic!!!!

must have been standing next to bucky when they measured him. thatll make you lose a few inches.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

On the contrary, if Bucky was 7'9", then QP should at least be 6'11", no?

Chem PhD '16

probably right. just makes you look like you lost a few inches lol.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

6 foot 12, probably.

Looks like they changed his height/weight since you posted this. Now listed at 6'4" - 231 lbs.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

grew 2 inches just from me mentioning bucky

I feel like I accomplished something! I hope everyone here appreciates my hard work!

Interesting to see Ellis listed as QB and Armani Chatman at WR

Chem PhD '16

what was chatman recruited as? his 247 list him as a wr. maybe youre confusing him with chamarri conner?

and we all knew ellis would get his shot a QB. I don't think he will be listed as a QB going into the season though.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

I thought both were recruited as ATH

Chem PhD '16

I know ellis was promised he would start at QB (basically a gentleman's shot) before being moved. I didn't realize that for chattman though. id assume if not a WR he would be a DB?

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Travon McMillian was given the same shot...for one day and then moved to RB.

I had thought Chatman for sure was going to be a DB.

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

Carliss Parker, too, for that matter. Hopefully Ellis' career turns out better than both of theirs and finishes his playing career in Blacksburg.

Terrius Wheatly still at Running back..seeing a decent amount of Running backs

No Samuel Denmark?

Good number of receivers overall, any word on whether Hazleton recovered from his injury?

Despite the attrition, I have faith in BUD and I think the defense will do well overall.

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

If Terrius is anything like his father as an RB, he should be pretty good!

What was Hazeltons injury that kept him out this spring?

Pretty sure there was an announcement a month or two ago that he was back with the team

Wow that's a young team. I thought #7 was a retired number. Also good to see Holston put on some more weight.

Recruit Prosim

marcus davis wasn't that good.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Bucky was pretty good though

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

#7 usually gets put on the best athlete on the team. #4 usually goes on the fastest person on the team.

What's
Important
Now

Was DW the fastest player on that team?

Recruit Prosim

No but Tim was last year.

I mean he has worn the #7 andddd the #4 must mean something.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Now I understand why Glennon had #7

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Vick's jersey was retired, but the #7 wasn't.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

Tech will no longer retire numbers.

Learn something new every day.

So it's just symbolic and doesn't really affect anything?

Recruit Prosim

When Sean Glennon wore it a few years after MV7 had it retired, and MV5 was kicked off the team, well you have your answer.

What's
Important
Now

No, it means that no other person with the last name Vick can be #7.

But... Michael Vick Jr. will be college-aged in 2036 or so...

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

I hear his real name is Ron Mexico Jr

"Give me a fu¢king beer", Anonymous Genius

Is that why Marcus was #5?

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Marcus was #5 because our QB Coach, Kevin Rogers, was the QB coach at Syracuse for McNabb who wore #5. He moved to the NFL to coach QBs for the Vikings, and they drafted a scrambler out of Mississippi State, and he also wore #5. See the pattern there?

What's
Important
Now

5 was the largest number Marcus knew at the time. Word on the street is he's almost ready to start learning the double-digits.

Fifty thousand people used to live here. Now it’s a ghost town.

Gee and here I thought the word on the street is the McCoy gave Marcus's baby momma herpes...

ohhhhh well that makes sense now. marcus posted a bunch of stuff on shady on his IG which he has since taken down. he was going on and on about him in the comments. shesh. that's tough.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Eh, to me it just sounds like he couldn't count to 18:

15, huh... that's more than 18, right?

- Marcus, maybe

So that's why the sentence was 5-to-life. Marcus wouldn't know how long he'd been in there once those first five years passed.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Im digging our WR depth for the next few years.

Depth AND quality.

Only one single digit Defensive Lineman? I don't like it redo the whole thing.

Goode is 331. That's a lot of beef. If he can play fast at that weight, fantastic. If not, I hope he gets down to the 315-320 range.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Starting to think he's a redshirt candidate, i'd be shocked if he could play at that size. Then again, probably more thrilled than shocked.

and remember, Goode is 6'-0" if he cheats up on his toes a little. 330 on that frame is a dang bowling ball. Settle had that much weight on a 6'-3" frame and looked huge.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

He will need to cut some weight.

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

The Goode news is with the new redshirt rule, he can cut some weight in camp and early in the season and still have a chance to see the field some late in the year.

Glad we have Cody Grimm and Jack Tyler on the roster, otherwise we would be pretty inexperienced at LB.

The Poster Formerly Known As The Spirit Of Bernard Basham

Buried deep inside that UNC piece was this gem

The X-factor for the Hokies will be tight end play, as sophomore Dalton Keene (#29) and junior Chris Cunningham (#85) were both hella productive in 2017. Cunningham averaged an absurd-for-a-TE 19 yards per catch, and Keene was right behind him at just over 16.

I had no idea our TE's were that productive last year.

I mean they only had 19 combined catches but I guess the point still stands

I immediately thought: "D'Artagnan of the Three Musketeers" fame.

DT depth is scary and absurd for a P5 team. Spin "recruiting" however you want, we have sucked recruiting that position, and it will bite us in the ass. CB a huge concern too, but Bud won't expose those guys if he does't have to. Still no top shelf RB on the roster.

Now try to say something positive.

Fifty thousand people used to live here. Now it’s a ghost town.

We see how DC likes to spin "recruiting".

Spin "recruiting" however you want, we have sucked recruiting that position, and it will bite us in the ass.

Since I have your permission to spin this, you forgot the part where the position is thin because we had a blue chip recruit leave early and get drafted.

Chem PhD '16

It is not thin (there are 7 plus two tweener DTs on scholarship.) And Dean is a walk on that may play over 3-4 of these guys.
Walker-Mihota
Burke-Hewitt
Fullwood-Taylor
Goode-Porcher/Becton

A fairer criticism would be that they have missed some evaluations and had projects not develop.

There desperately needs to be some development or attrition at the defensive tackle spot in order to accommodate the increase in DT offers which the recruitnick folks want to see.

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

I vote for Development!

I must have missed something... Where is JBril Glaze?

Chem PhD '16

By definition, not all projects will "develop" this is why there needs to be more of an emphasis on recruiting. After a redshirt freshman year, most Defensive Tackles should be able to contribute to give the starters a rest...maybe not playing a huge amount of snaps, but still able to contribute....

Never fear. As long as there is Coach Wiles, there will be a fast twitch bell cow.

17 WRs, with 5 newcomers and 7 entering their 2nd year on campus (Hazleton transferred in after his true freshman season at Ball State). We've been busy bringing in bodies recently, hopefully some of them pan out big.

A bunch of walk-in WRs

With having to practice against the no huddle, spread offenses you have to have a ton of scout team receivers to rotate in.

Damn, the new roster format sucks. Excessive whitespace partly caused by the useless expanding 'additional info' tabs. Took 27 rolls of the mouse wheel to scroll all the way to the bottom.

ooh found the roster format drop down list... Grid View is much better

Two observations:

Chase Moo-Maw (I can't spell, so I'm spelling it how it sounds) looks like he's 40 and

Did anyone else notice that we have two number 56 O-linemen? Are we doing that to confuse opponents?

Ok, a third observation, we also have a tight end with the same number as Bradburn, another fake in the making??

There is nothing in the world like Thursday night in Blacksburg!

I imagine there's a good chance that Kane redshirts, and this'll be Clay Dean's 3rd year on the team and he has yet to see the field, so I guess they assume they probably won't be conflicting too much.

I figured something like that was the case, I was just trying to make a funny.

There is nothing in the world like Thursday night in Blacksburg!

I could have sworn QP was going to have another number besides #7. I thought he posted on his twitter a couple months ago that it was a different number.

He said he was #4 and that he didn't want to be #7.

Many good/interesting things on there. One that stood out was Chatman being listed at WR. I was hoping one of Chatman and Ellis would play offense. If Ellis doesn't stay at QB, he could be a candidate for DB.

Also Goode at 330. Definitely will need to cut some weight, but a freshman coming in with that size is uncommon. Would rather it be this way than him being too light and needing a year to bulk up. If he is in good shape and can cut 15-20 and play fast around/slightly above 300, hopefully he can add immediate depth on DL this year.

I would expect Chatman and Ellis to be looked at as WR and CB before they make a final decision unless they already have and they are just going through the motions now as far as looking at Ellis as a QB.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

dalton keene and drake Duluiis are going to be 'dynamic' this year.

Yep, those dudes are living the dream. Providing valuable scout team looks, hoping to get to run out of the tunnel one day.

Reminds me of this quote from Moneyball:

"We're all told at some point in time that we can no longer play the children's game, we just don't...we don't know when that's gonna be. Some of us are told at eighteen, some of us are told at forty, but we're all told."

Play the Children's Game until they tell you it's over.

I didn't realize that we had Cody Grimm and Jack Tyler (GA) on staff as well. When did that happen?

Grimm has been around for a few seasons. He came in towards the end of Beamer's tenure. Jack Tyler is news to me though.

Jack has been around the team since 2015 I think. It's been a few years. I know he was definitely around in 2016.
