Mook Reynolds Dismissed from Team

Sorry to start Monday morning with bad news...

So the rumors have officially been confirmed. I guess we're going to see Bud work magic with a very young team.

This sucks for the team and I hope Mook ends up alright. Another big blow for the defense though

VB born, class of '14

This sucks, can Mook go in the Supplemental Draft?

I would have preferred that this not happen.

Best wishes to Mook.

This is the real tragedy here.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Ricky Walker is the only player it would have hurt more to lose...

Best of luck in the future to Mook, I will miss watching him play.

In Bud we trust... but this year he might get a pass.

this year he might get a pass.

Really not looking forward to folks coming on here calling for firings in a rebuilding year.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

At first I was about to ask whta you were talking about, but then I read "rebuilding year" & gathered you were referencing the actual, factual season. I feel ya, although I think it's a lot more tame on here than fakebook & tweeter.

Who on this or any board has called for Bud Foster to be fired? just curious

Yes, who has called for Bud Foster himself to be "fired" from VT football?? I don't remember seeing anything like that.

It's too early in the morning for this much irony.

If we're playing this game then where did I say people may be asking for Bud Foster specifically to be fired?

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I've never come close to suggesting Bud be fired. Not even close. So no, not ironic

You might not have outright said it, but there were strong implications in the "Bud gets a pass" that could have easily led someone to believe you didn't want Bud to be coaching this team anymore.

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

You are kidding? After an embarrassing loss to a 5 win GT team where they took us out of the coastal race, and completed 3 total passes - 2 for long TD's... people on a message board were frustrated with the defense late in the game? You are kidding? And of course in THAT circumstance, right after the game, any "criticism" of Bud signals I wanted him fired. Yes of course.

That thread was created on November 6th

We played GT on November 11th

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

Yes, and nowhere in that thread - after getting thrashed by Miami on national TV with Rosier running like Herschel Walker, did I call for- or close to call for Bud being fired. I have also conceded 100 times that Bud is the best out there.

Once again, its not what you but how you say it, and what you imply with it that is leaving people to believe this.

Then people need to infer better.

The Poster Formerly Known As The Spirit Of Bernard Basham

Seriously, people seem to no longer take responsibility for their own inferences these days. Inference and implication are different folks!

Late to this one. But what gets his (dcwilson's) goat is that every time there's a breakdown on D (loss-inducing level, or significant failure to adjust), there's a loud faction of people who circle the wagons and treat Foster as if he's some mythical being. They shout down any criticism, and offering all manner of apology, typically along the lines of "it was the Offense's fault/the D was gassed"

Is dcwilson coarse about the way he says it? Maybe. But there's validity inside the frustrated posts too.

Since you agree I ain't gonna let you drive this car to dinner and I agree you ain't gonna let me drive this car to dinner, there's only one way to settle this.

I disagree, Mook had better & stronger draft potential than Walker.

#FUENTEenFUEGO

We'll soon find out about that...

I don't know if there is a deadline (or if it has passed) for seeking entry into the supplemental draft, but the draft is Wednesday. I wouldn't be shocked if the timing of this decision wasn't driven in part by the timing of the draft.

I really like Mook as a college football player but I don't see him getting drafted now or in 2019. Nor do I see Walker getting drafted for that matter in 2019, but that's less of a long shot IMO.

Both have had draft buzz. Why wouldnt they have good chance of being drafted?

There are maybe 300+ seniors with 2019 "draft buzz" right now. And how many seniors will get drafted? Maybe 150 give or take?

Both are tweeners by NFL standards and tweeners generally don't fare well in the draft or training camp.

But as I said, I like Walker's chances better than Mook's.

Ummmm I am going to have to disagree with you there.

So you think Walker would go higher than Mook? Sorry, not seeing it (& certainly not to take anything away from Walker).

#FUENTEenFUEGO
Waho's suck
Uva swallows

not taking anything away but question for me at least is why wouldnt they have a chance at being drafted and secondly why Mook so clearly the higher pick if by some remote chance they did get drafted?

Yes. For two reasons:

1) Walker shows the versatility that he could play both an undersized one gap 4-3 and a two gap 3-4 strong side DE.

2) Mook was the purest definition of a tweener. He didn't have the size or range that NFL scouts look for in a safety. A slot nickel has to be good in press man. If he wanted a shot at the NFL, he needed this year to show he could be effective at corner. He was a guy who fit what Bud does that doesn't necessarily fit the prototype for what NFL teams want. There have been lots of those guys who are very good in Blacksburg that don't end up having success at the next level.

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

Ok I hear you. But what about the fact that NFL defenses have been more implementing of a Whip in their schemes? Also, to your remark about players great in Bburg but not the NFL, that's been more on the line & backers vs the secondary.

Mook was far from unbeatable in the slot and I'd hate to see him matched up with NFL TEs.

I like Mook at the college level, but I think that's his ceiling.

Welp. Anyone care to venture a guess on the starting defensive backfield now? Could it be that Bryce Watts is literally the only sure starter on the roster at this point? Probably Devon Hunter. Then a whole lot of question marks. It's amazing how much experience and talent we could not have foreseen losing since last season.

Reggie Floyd and Caleb Farley, beyond that I have no clue

Divine Deablo

Aw man, I hate this for Mook and his family! What a great kid and a great family. I wish the best to him and will miss the input from PapaMook (JReynolds6). Best wishes and blessings in your future and always a Hokie to me!

I hope Fuente is taking a good look at how his team is being managed. Either his staff or his student leaders need to step up, because these rumors (and yes, where there's smoke, there's fire even if its just a little one) and dismissals are not a good look.

Be careful with speculating on rumors... just friendly advice from experience.

Rumors come from somewhere. I'm not saying they amount to much, but it could be someone putting themselves in a precarious position, or toeing the line.

Whether they like it or not, the players are public figures representing the VT community.

I hope every time I hear a negative rumor about a player, it has NO basis and will be dismissed promptly as preposterous. Hopefully I get lucky, but I always suspect it emanates from something true.

Oh I completely agree with you, just saying that if you have any info on rumors that are unpopular and you decide to share, it's a dicey proposition at best, so just be careful.

Warning taken.

I'm not important or connected enough to get that sort of info.

Even if you were, it's a bad idea to spread unconfirmed/unsourced rumors.

There is the view that he is handling anything that comes up. Mook is dismissed, rather than getting a slap on the wrist. (ala FSU) Adonis was out of the coaching staff's hands, the player has to do the school work... I haven't been on TKP in a few days so I haven't seen any rumors of what Mook did.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Yes, but where are the people (staff or players) making sure that this stuff isn't even coming up? I'm happy that our program is run with integrity, but recently we have:

Rumors of our starting QB getting suspended
AA Dismissed
Mook Dismissed

This isn't a good look regardless.

Look through Beamers top years and look at all those suspensions and dismissals.

See Dwight Vick and Derek Smith's tweets about the 1996 team.

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

Also, we live in a world where there is a need for instant information and the slightest of things can be blown up in Twitter and social media. This goes for more than just VT Football. Many of the issues and/or rumor that get massive attention would've gone completely unnoticed 10-15 years ago, imo.

From where I stand, I do get the impression that this administration, from the top, is making the right decisions. These players are young adults, that will make bad decisions and some times that is out of the coaches' control.

All in all, it's obviously a bad combination of events that is decimating our starting defense, but like some have said, we have talent that hopefully will step up to the challenge. I don't get the impression that there are serious underlying misconduct issues with the current team, by any means.

TL;DR: Social media sucks. I think we'll be fine.

Welp...

This is not good. Best of luck to Mook!

Danny Coale Caught That Ball!!!

Dear offseason,

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I'm wondering if Ladler is fully recovered to start at one of the positions. He at least has some playing experience from the 2nd half of the season, any word on Deablo's recovery?

I think the only real sure starter is Reggie Floyd at Rover. We can guess Hunter at Whip most likely but you never know. And Farley at Corner is looking very realistic.

Not the Monday start I was looking for.

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

I think I'm going to play. I've been running 3-5 times a week and my stamina is really improving.

I don't think he is leaving covering the team, just not doing it for the Roanoke times

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Yeah, he left the Roanoke times, but maybe not the team.

Josh Jackson's situation got cleared up? Last time I was on TKP, the site was having a meltdown over this. How'd it get cleared up?

It was an academic matter, so we're not going to get much in the way of detail. But he's academically eligible and whatever was going on is resolved in the eyes of the University.

I was told- you can shun that or believe me or not- that Mook and Adonis were both given an aggressive, dire straights type academic "get well" plan and Adonis slept on it a day and told the coaches he wasn't interested. Mook told the coaches that he would follow the plan to the letter and they had his word, etc. So Adonis was told he was done, Mook was given some time... which turned out to expire now- Obviously for academic issues.

Does anyone have any other insight on this? In the Adonis thread, Mook's academic situation was brought up and Papa Mook shut that down pretty quickly. Then in the JJ speculation thread, LawdHamGreasy added a comment (click at your own risk, very long load time) pretty well after most of the other speculation regarding JJ indicating that Mook's situation was tenuous due to impropriety in the JJ case.

Chem PhD '16

I guess we should let Mr. Reynolds take the lead if he so chooses to provide any insight (which this is obviously a sensitive family matter so I would never expect someone to do that), at least that's the lesson that I learned. I think any speculation at this point would only send us spiraling down a dark path from which there is no escape.

Sure. See my comment from three weeks ago, though. Your comment about Mook was a total change in the narrative regarding the reasons for his dubious status.

To this point, the scuttlebutt surrounding Mook had been with respect to his academic eligibility (see the AA thread where his dad put an end to that) and not any potential involvement in a football cheating scandal that involves 3+ players.

Chem PhD '16

I understand. To be fair, before that thread got dicey I had only pointed out that there was still uncertainty around his status; a notion that was promptly and sternly dismissed by Fireman and others (BTW, maybe this is a good time to update TKP 101?). I later followed up with additional speculation, which at the time and given the nature of the thread seemed an appropriate thing to do. But I don't know if this is the result of performance, conduct, or a combination thereof... so it's probably not something we'll know for certain.

It's a sports message board, and speculation happens. There are entire networks and outlets devoted to speculation in sports. It's not the end of the world if one speculates what may or may not have happened. It happens everywhere, with every fan base.

I likely won't participate, but there's no reason to try to quell actual sports-related discussion. The Sy thread is humorous bc the OP got downvoted to oblivion and basically reprimanded by some for bringing some speculative news that certainly had legs, and turned out to be true.

This was mostly sarcasm on my part... see the thread that Gobble linked above... similar scenario to the Sy situation.

Did the Sy thing turn out to be true?

He was making a snarkish response because I got annoyed with the way he was saucing his speculation in other threads by saying "not to speculate or anything but" before going on to turn the speculation all the way up to 11

edit: beaten by 9 seconds

Chem PhD '16

In all seriousness... there are no winners here... I hate that we are losing Mook as he was one hell of a player. I hate that his struggles here ultimately got the best of him but hopefully these experiences will serve him better as he moves forward with his life... best of luck Mook!

The Sy thread is humorous bc the OP got downvoted to oblivion and basically reprimanded by some for bringing some speculative news that certainly had legs, and turned out to be true.

He got downvoted into oblivion because he was posting unconfirmed rumor as a new thread with a definitive headline. I believe he even admitted that his only source was a post on TSL. It's still unconfirmed speculation, as far as I can tell.

"speculative news"? Is that another way to say unconfirmed rumor?

Call it whatever you want, but it is at least a topic that has to do with VT sports. Someone who reads may have had additional info to share. There were recruiting thread posts by first time poster(s) who happened to be close to the family and had legit info.

If no one is allowed to post about anything that isn't fully confirmed at the time, what is the point? Even speculating, it's still something VT sports related to talk about other than JG Wentworth commercials or 'what kind of drink are you'

Personally I don't mind the discussion of rumors themselves and the impact on the team should a rumor be true. I think we cross the line into unrest when someone joins the discussion speaking authoritatively without much of anything to back up what they're saying.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Had it been voiced as speculation, the meltdown would likely have been avoided.

Still, I think when it comes to pure negative speculation about our team, I can live without it. There are lots of people here who actually know things. Let them bring it up. It's not like if something significant happens we're not going to hear about it.

Even if someone thinks they might know something, but doesn't have a confirmed source and are getting ready to wet their pants. There is way too much unconfirmed nonsense out there, and it turns out to be just that: nonsense. When it comes to unconfirmed rumors in the off-season, I'd rather look at silly gifs, or better yet, mow the lawn.

A big problem with it is leaking stuff from behind a paywall to an open public forum

Recruit Prosim

I think we should leave it alone. Whatever the reason, the only person who has to live with the consequences is Mook. Wish him luck.

I hate when a player messes things up, some who are legitimately more angry about a tackle that player missed seems to love tearing that player down when something like this happens. Unless the issue is endemic in the program (and if it is, there would be more smoke), hope the young man learns a lesson and finds a way to right his ship. The worst consequence for us is possibly a handful of slightly less enjoyable Saturdays. There is no need to address his personal business anymore.

My opinion only...

Mook Reynolds, LB, Virginia Tech

Reynolds started his career in Blacksburg as a cornerback but has shifted to a hybrid linebacker/safety role over the last two years. With Tremaine Edmunds moving onto the NFL, Reynolds' presence and versatility is going to be even more crucial for the Hokies in 2018. Reynolds has recorded 134 tackles (18.5 for a loss), 3.5 sacks and two interceptions over the last two years.

You don't even have to stay away from it. Just don't have enough in your possession or have a scale and multiple bags nearby to classify it as intent to distribute.

Trevon has had strong twitter game in the past, but this is such a bad tweet. It's a really bad look for the program when our players are coming at a reporter who isn't even in the wrong

It appears that CJF may have had a chat. It looks like the tweet has been deleted.

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

Wow, all around bad situation. I feel where Trevon and Mook are coming from, but it is public knowledge. I can look that up very easily right now, it's not just media. When you are a public figure, it's a two-way street. When you do well, you are praised, and when you don't, expect this. It's a shame considering how draconian these laws are tbh, but it comes with the limelight of being a college athlete.

It's not like he was breaking an unheard of law. Weed is illegal in Virginia and distribution of it is a felony. You get arrested for it and charged with that felony as a public figure, it's going to get reported. It was a BS move going after Bitter for reporting this information that was available by simply looking it up.

I'm actually more troubled by that than the actual charges, because it shows a complete lack of big picture awareness. You want to be a big boy program and get all the accolades players on big boy programs get, then you have to accept the scrutiny that also comes with it. If they were at Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, etc this would be front page ESPN right now. If you have NFL aspirations, the spotlight only gets worse from there.

Oh I completely agree. At the end of the day, weed is illegal in VA, and there are consequences for your actions. I can understand their frustrations with having your name put out there associated with this stuff, but as I said, it comes with the public figure status. Bitter was doing his job, and he shouldn't be faulted or called out for that.

Never seen players go after the guy that covers their team before.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Particularly for reporting publicly-available news.

Arrests get reported.

Yeah, Bitter was just stating facts, his 2 cent or opinion was nowhere to be seen in his follow up on Mook.
