Everything is terrible.

Conspicuously no thank you to Fuente.

Agree. I got a bad feeling about how the Fuente era in Blacksburg ends. And I do think it ends sooner than later. No sauces or even a real reason other than my typical pessimism. Hopefully I'm wrong. Until I hear a reason otherwise, I'm going to support the coach and the team. But just seems to be a negative cloud over the program right now. I'm really hoping it's just the shitty losing season. Who knows...

Gonna miss those brutal stiffarms.

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

Was Foster his main recruiter? Why thank him and not Fuente?

This... is not what I expected. Not great.

Also, I think Kumah and Patterson were both Beamer recruits.

What's going on in Blacksburg?

What is happening is that he wasn't a Fuente recruit, his position coach left, and he has to split catches with at least two other really talented outside WR's (probably more if you include Payoute,Pinckney, and Patterson). A bummer to see him leave but it's literally the only position on the team that has enough depth to handle the loss.

Prepare to be on the receiving end of snide remarks.

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

No place for rational takes here good sir.

Side note: This is a loss, no spin to it. We are better with Kumah.

Always choose joy.

No doubt. I think Kumah was a great one on one threat and crushed DBs with the ball in his hands. I also think the decorum here isn't in great shape.

Haha thanks for preparing me, I've spent enough time around here to know hot takes are more well received than rational ones. Of course I would rather have had Kumah stick around he had developed into a reliable receiver, but we also have Turner, Hazelton and a host of Fr. And R-Fr. to soften the blow.

Spin zone: with all those sophs, r-fresh, and t-fresh stepping in, at least we can hear the youth excuse again this year!

But still #NotaGoodLook

Sure, maybe WRs can take a hit. But this is not a good thing. Depth is very important and Kumah wasn't exactly getting buried in the depth chart. He was productive this year.

Just wow. No good way to spin this. He was starting, along with Turner and Grimsley, over Hazelton.

Not great on many levels.

There's really no glass half full thinking for me on this; this guy made plays for us. This sucks ass.

I'm sure people will mention how Hazelton and Turner would likely be at the top of the depth chart, and how we have Patterson, Grimsley, and then Ellis will be coming up, but Kumah was a big physical receiver who could win one on one battles. This is a loss no matter how you cut it.

Additionally, the fact that another player leaving the program doesn't even acknowledge the head coach is something that is becoming a trend.

The state of the football program is not well in my opinion.

Not everyone is going to like a head coach, especially ones recruited by a different coach. This is a reality that people have to understand.

Always choose joy.

Yes but without any insider info to why it's easy to draw the conclusion if he's not gonna even mention or thank fuente that maybe that might be why. Wish it wasn't like that but it's easy to read it in this one

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Not sure why you'd bet on Patterson at this point.

I'm not, just saying others might. I think Kumah was a dependable WR who we're going to miss big time.

Patterson couldn't catch a pillow handed to him!

That one handed spring game snag says otherwise

'Its easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat,
but the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat'

Do we have any insight into why players don't s3m to get along with Fuente?

You serious??

Yea I mean is it as simple as the "my way or the highway" or "they were Beamers guys" explanations?

And are these explanations just speculation or are they substantiated by comments from former players\coaches?

I certainly have my assumptions, but what is it specifically?

Sooooo with Cunningham and Kumah leaving (and whoever else,) next year we're going to be a team of just Freshman and Sophomores again?

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

yeah, but we'll finally be just 2 years from turning the corner

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

I wonder if this is what Tre Turner's "business is business" tweet was about.

"I liked you guys a lot better when everybody told you you were terrible." -Justin Fuente

Also stripped all references to VT off his Twitter...

What? Tre Turner did?

Yup, header image is "Patience...God is testing me #God's Plan"

WTF! Are there deeper problems in the football program than just having a down year?

Yup. Pretty much.

The "Beamer recruit" excuse doesn't fly with me anymore. Spring 2016 was nearly three years ago. If these Beamer recruits didn't mesh with the new coaching staff, I don't think it would just now be causing them to leave. I know Wiggins is gone, I know we have a lot of receivers, yadda yadda yadda. I'm not buying any of it. There is something wrong with Virginia Tech football, and it's not going to get better under Fuente.

Transfer rules have something to do with it. Cunningham would have lost a year of eligibility. Kumah would have had to redshirt. Some kids just want to play and will wait it out.

Always choose joy.

Both played a considerable amount last season. Kumah started against Cincinnati. The first game depth chart isn't decided in January.

That's exactly my point. Had they transferred earlier they wouldn't have played at their new school due to transfer rules.

I agree and I've felt it since mid season. Can't put my finger on it just a bad feeling.

Sooo...is it safe to say that I should just stay in the barn for the rest of the day? Away from the internet? Asking for a frie....nah, I'm going to bed, see y'all later
