The Grave Error Concerning ESPN College Football Live

Hello fellow hokie fans. If any of you viewed the Monday edition of College Football Live on ESPN, you should be very, very angry. One of the topics discussed on the show was a list of the nation's best defensive backs. Our all - everything corner Jayron Hosley was not mentioned. Not in the first list, not during honorable mention, not anywhere! The same Jayron who was a Playboy Preseason All-American a couple months ago. The same corner who led the nation with nine interceptions last season. The same playmaker who will most definitely enter the season with first team All-ACC honors. ESPN did all of hokie nation a huge injustice; one I will not soon forget.


I wonder if this guy ever found peace.

His one and only comment I'm going to guess no.

Does Beamer have the cajones to fire Stinespring now? It's been obvious for years, but after the Michigan game it needs to be done. In OT, two running plays up the middle before Danny's catch?
Michigan couldn't cover our receivers all day, and couldn't match our speed outside and yet every time we got in the red zone we turned ultra conservative. Can you imagine the Hokies with an innovative Boise type offense?

Next year we'll have a great defense,and Logan Thomas at qb. We need a spark at OC.
Let's stop talking about it, and do it!!

That Logan Thomas fella sounds like a sure fire Heisman candidate.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

The 6th Birthday of TKP prompted me to try to find the first post ever... Boy how we've grown.

I like what you've done with the place.

Thanks, Joe. You've outdone yourself.

What's this key next to my name?!
Where am I?!
What day is it?!

Keep calm, Gobble on

I was a patron of your site before TKP existed. It's good to see how far we've come.

Go Hokies
