It will be weird seeing him in a Miami uniform.

Excited to see him pancaked at every opportunity.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Doug Nester is waiting for you on line 1, Mr. Hill.

He made a pretty theatrical mocking of the turnover chain during the 2017 game. In 2019 he'll be gunning to wear it.

Is this a long-con to obtain and then destroy the chain? Have we groomed Hill to stage a very public falling out so that a rival state can't help but recruit him to flip to their side only to have him destroy what they love from within?

I doubt it, but I hope we did.

Let's just hope he never gets a turn at the turnover chain against VT. Or maybe anyone.

Awesome. We definitely know which one of Miami's D-ends struggles against the run now.

As long as he isn't here I could care less where he is. Hope things improve for him on a personality level. He will be a better fit in Miami with his personality.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Given how this all played out, you KNOW we're going to have more than 1 play drawn up for that game with the explicit purpose of embarrassing Hill on the field.

I would hope that our coaches are not as petty as half of our fanbase appears to be and are more focusing on winning the game then "embarrassing" a former player...

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

So given that fact,

you KNOW we're going to have more than 1 play drawn up for that game with the explicit purpose of embarrassing Hill on the field Running all over the weakness of the defense

I'm sure Hill has Oct 5th circled on his calendar. Hope we aren't spending any energy on this and just focusing on getting better.

"They got us field position and then the offense stuck it in." - Frank Beamer

Good riddance, perfect fit... any way to speed up his graduation so he can gtfo of Blacksburg?

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

That was the bigger problem. Who cares where he was going to go. The fact that he was still in Blacksburg and still around current players was the bigger problem.

The fact that he was IS still in Blacksburg and still around current players was IS the bigger problem.

And still close with plenty of current players.

When you think about it, it's more and more odd: he's gonna be socializing with VT players, attending VT all spring so he can graduate, which allows him to transfer without restriction and play immediately, leave Blacksburg in May, and play against us less than five months later.

Also, he (& Kumah, no?), as a regular old student, could ostensibly attend the spring game as a fan. A fan with a camera phone and a notepad. I'm no conspiracy theorist, but seems less than optimal.

Then again, this whole fucking mess that we are all expending way too much time and energy on also seems less than optimal...

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

eh if hill was a student of the game he'd understand the defense and his gap fit and not just how to rush the QB. He wont learn anything from the spring game that he hasn't learned in his time at VT. also the spring game is open to the public. Manny Diaz himself could show up with a note pad and camera phone if he wanted too and wed more than likely be none the wiser.

Considering I saw him Saturday night in bburg, you are correct on the change in tense haha

Normally I'm all for players moving freely if they've graduated and are eligible for transfer, but this pisses me off to no end. VT stood by him when he was expelled from high school when probably no other school would've taken his commitment. After we kicked him off the team, we still allowed him to use the program's facilities in order to stay in shape and willingly communicated with any other schools that inquired about him as a player and a person.

I see this as a move out of direct spite to VT. If Fuente and Bud are ok with this then they are better men than I.

Especially knowing some of the instances of his poor behavior. He was given so many chances. One of his outbursts in a practice would have had him kicked off a lot of teams by itself. He has an anger problem for sure.

Pretty much everything he's done since he was dismissed has been slathered with spite towards VT. I do not doubt for a second he did this as one final 'screw you' to our coaches.

VT stood by him when he was expelled from high school when probably no other school would've taken his commitment

I agree with the sentiment, but plenty of schools would have taken his commitment. Heck, Miami just took it knowing about getting kicked out of his high school and VT

Have we ever known Miami to care about morals or ethics?

Strongly disagree with you. There might've been a school to take him, but the very vast majority wouldn't have touched that situation with a 10-foot pole. As we've seen with plenty of other situations, schools will take someone after enough time has passed, but I can almost guaranteee we wouldn't have taken Hill if he wasn't already committed. Not to mention that we had to jump through some serious academic hoops to get him through admissions after he never received his full credit amount due to the expulsion.

This past situation is also different because he wasn't kicked out of school, so A) the optics aren't nearly as bad and B) he just has to pass his classes this semester to be admitted to his new school.

I agree with you about the majority of schools, but there are stories every year about schools taking a kid with character issues. But there's always a school who thinks a kid will help them on the field and they'll overlook a lot.

Seriously, respect your opinion, but we'll have to agree to disagree.

To your last point, I wonder if he's lost access to the tutors/study help the athletes typically have abundant access to and if that may be a risk for him.

If Hill did actually make fun of Fuente's autistic son (not saying I believe it or not, just what some are speculating about) then I have no idea how he held it together.

I really hope that isn't true, because that's about as low of blow as you will ever see.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

Fuente doesn't have a son. It's speculated it was a strength coach's son.

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

that's even worse if he called Fuentes daughters his son and then said what he said.

twitter @smithey_daniel
head scout BSP scouting specializing in north florida/ southern GA highschool football scouting

Welp, I'm clueless. Either way, hope that isn't true.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

It was indeed a strength coaches son. And Trevon was on extremely thin ice due to prior incidents so Fuente pulled the pin at that point. I will not repeat the comment out of respect for the strength coach.

Hill is still a hokie in my mind, I wish him the best, and I will cheer for him to do well ....

After this season. Good luck in 2020 Trevon

You're more charitable than me. He went against the family, and that's not OK.

"the family" like something out of the godfather.

No like this family

Coach Fuente and Coach Foster...because you're doubly f***ed

Quick question. I see we are all taking about pancaking him and the such. Is there any guarantee he sees the field? All we hear about year after year is Miami's talent on defense. Did that suddenly change or was it all just hype?

They're thin at DL. He probably comes in in a pass rush package for them but with their depth might be a 4 down DE there.

(add if applicable) /s

"If Fu goes to 2 acc champ games in 4 years, I will never criticize him again." - dcwilson

Okay. So yeah, run at his side with the beef package.

Itll be interesting to see how long he can keep it together in a locker room. with NO culture to fall back on. NO leadership, and a place that isn't HOME to him. like LA mentioned early, VT really stuck their neck out for him, if he couldn't maintain himself for a place that was his home with and for his brothers (that alot of which he grew up with in the 757) what is he going to do in what is essentially the streets in Miami. The foundation and culture and locker room and brotherhood he had at VT probably allowed him to keep himself together about as much as he could do so. Without the structure that was VT I can only imagine how long itll take before his antics run him out of town in Miami and further damage his own what was once bright future. some kids cant get out of there own way. unfortunately I know a few like this. and its all to familiar. I feel sorry for Trevon, but at some point hell learn he has dug his own hole.

Are we sure this kind of thing is an issue at Miami? It's not like the turnover chain is a symbol of hard work and good behavior.

confused by your question? It's not like the turnover chain is a symbol of hard work and good behavior.

that's kind of what I was insinuating. I don't know it to be a fact. just the general perception of the U. (one im ok with not changing as each school has its own presumed culture and most times embraces and Miami seems to be no different)

twitter @smithey_daniel
head scout BSP scouting specializing in north florida/ southern GA highschool football scouting

I think he's referring to whether the bad behavior is an issue that will run him out of town?

Yes, what he/she said.

I can see what you're saying. Even if their culture is rotten they won't tolerate it being compromised. I suppose if I were to be more clear I would say his antics are probably totally inline with their culture.

It will be strange to see a former Hokie in a Miami uniform.

Can't really say I want to beat Miami more than I did before this announcement though.

The Dude Abides

I don't know. I wanted to beat them pretty badly already.

Other than the fact ESPN will talk this story to death come game day and focus the cameras on him every chance they get, I wouldn't really notice him out there at all. As for his choice, I don't have an issue. Our coaches were done with him and he is doing whats best for himself at this point. Cant imagine the list of P5 schools that would give him a chance to start can be very long for next year.

So what happens when Hill picks a fight with the new punter?

Easy, the punter uses his toothbrush shank that he made during his first stint in the pen.

That's funny as shit right there!

I hope Quincy trucks right through him into the endzone.

I am a proponent of once a Hokie always a Hokie. But I am not gonna lie, the pettiness of Hill has me way more bitter than it should. I also didn't realize that he was still on scholarship here in the spring. After reading Mike Barber's tweet, Fuente really did him a solid. Going to Miami and being petty on twitter has me rooting for him to crash and burn in the Florida heat.

Just did I quick scroll through the replies on his tweets. Breath of fresh air that I didn't see any Hokies saying anything. Take the high road and hopefully this is the last ever time Hill is discussed on here.

(add if applicable) /s

"If Fu goes to 2 acc champ games in 4 years, I will never criticize him again." - dcwilson

As for him staying in Blacksburg and having any say, I would think other players are giving him a sidelong glance with him going to Miami.

Go to another school in the ACC and that's fine, but Miami? I don't think there is any love for Miami from any Hokies, fans or players.

Why are we still talking about him? He has made it known he doesn't want to be a Hokie anymore so why spend more time and energy on him?

Because #offseason

This seems like top 3 least graceful departures in VT history with Marcus Vick and Cody Journell also being in the top 3.

i forgot about journell. did they ever figure out why he felt the need to do something so stupid?

Which time?

Marshall University student.

I don't think it's possible to figure out. After talking to him a few times, I'm not sure he could differentiate between smart and stupid or right and wrong. That kid was certainly one of the bluntest tools in the shed.

Current Roanoke-Hokie
Go Hokies!

Trevon has a history of bullying and disrespecting persons who can't help their situations. VT has given him opportunity after opportunity and he continues to pretend he is some victim.

If he owned his "truth" as he said he did - and let's be clear - it's plural - not just the ODU incident. I doubt anyone on this board would want anything to do with him.

He hasn't learned a thing since HS (never was a fan of us letting him in) and I think has gotten worse. Maybe one day Trevon will find some humility, but I doubt it.

I would normally just say move on - aka who cares, but LAHokie is spot on here. Total hypocrit who doesn't care about anything beyond himself. This move should be used as motivation. Sometimes the only way to beat a bully is face to face - here is to Oct 5th Trevon.

"I still believe in Trevon and want him to do well as far as continuing to keep him on scholarship so that he can get his education and have an opportunity to play," Fuente said, calling Hill's dismissal something he had to do. "That's what we want for him, is to still have an opportunity to live out his dream. That's why we've kept him on financial aid so that he does have an opportunity to go play wherever he wants."

This is why Trevon should be gracious to Fuente and company. It would have been much easier to just cut ties and get him off campus (away from the team).

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I think this is how you deal with people who aren't buying what you're selling. You tell them what you expect of them and what they have to do to represent your organization. If they don't agree with that, they don't have to be a part of what you're doing and you deal with that by taking them out of your team or letting them leave. But I like that Fuente is maintaining the standards of the program he's hired to run. Whatever Trevon did, or did over a period of time, was enough to get him kicked off the team. His antics and vindications since then and prior to are on him, not on Fuente or Virginia Tech. Make him own that shit. Regardless of what he did, I think we can all agree that we wish he wouldn't have done it and could have worked to be a better individual and teammate. He did not, and that is his burden to bear. Sleep in the bed you've made. We wish you the best in whatever you do and won't hinder your path forward, but it is no longer with us. Know that all we've done is try to help you in any way we can. This shit is on you man. Good luck with it.

Already became unlikable. I'll probably get down voted for this, but fuck that guy. Before this I was onboard with the "let it go" mantra, but throwing up the U at Virginia Tech graduation, nope...

Yep I'm there too after looking at his twitter page. I mean he took away from all those other people getting their degree, for his showboating.

I was sitting there watching it as it happened and I honestly can say I wasn't shocked he did it. For some reason as he got ready to walk on stage I thought to myself I bet he flashes a "U" sign.

Is this maybe a good time to retire the naive "Once a Hokie, always a Hokie" mantra? These are real people, like you and me, and sometimes their loyalty to VT is no more or less than you have for your company.

Trevon Hill seems to be an extra-level douche bag, but can we also stop immortalizing players like like Adonis Alexander, Josh Jackson and Tim Settle? I have little doubt they have more character than Hill, who is Marcus Vick-like in his selfishness and bad decision making. But they were only committed to VT as long as it benefited them, can we please stop pretending otherwise?

The doll's trying to kill me and the toaster's been laughing at me.

Why?

Hill and Vick are outliers, so it definitely doesn't apply to them.

But I don't see why you have such gripe about Alexander, JJ and Settle (?). Alexander was nothing but gracious. Admittedly things were his fault and thanked everyone. JJ broke his leg for the program and then took an option that he felt is going to be better for his future. I assume you are talking about Settle leaving early? Why would this apply? Seems overly petty.

Players need to make decisions for their future. Not all players are going to find the best route to what they envision their future to be at VT. As long as they aren't criminal shitbags like Marcus or lowlifes like Hill then anyone that puts on the O&M is a Hokie and will always be welcomed as a Hokie IMO.

I mean really, if we don't consider any player who left early a good Hokie there is a long list of them who I consider among the best Hokies.

No. Hill is a Hokie. He walked across that stage. He earned it. If he doesn't appreciate it, or understand it, that's up to him to figure out. If you let one guy wreck it for you, than maybe it was never that strong to begin with. (Many people today who jump at social media hot take shadows, be they political or not, could learn that lesson.)

Also, I'm throwing you an upvote, because you just expressed your opinion.

Leonard. Duh.

Pro tip: Leave that area in the parenthesis out.

I've said it here since the whole Hill thing started. Its better if we just forget about him. He's still got a lot of friends on the team there's nothing the fan base gains out of giving Hill any attention.

I'm leaving the parentheses. My comment is not political. I'm trying to prove the point that our institutions are far more formidable than a few knuckleheads passing through them. I could have worded it more clearly. I'm not saying Trump haters are psycho. However there are more than a few who are suffering unnecessary emotional trauma because they think one man can bring down the whole shebang.

Seems like a classic Trevon Hill move. Always cared about starting twitter drama more than staying on the field.

Hot take if I was going to another university and had an adversarial relationship with the coaching staff here, I'd probably do the same thing. Trevon didn't just decide to get pissed off at the coaching staff on his own. It takes two to tango and whether he's in the wrong or not stuff like this isn't hard to understand.

Then you do that around your former coaches and teammates, not people at a graduation ceremony that don't give a shit about your situation and who you probably didn't get to know at all

You'd let bitterness consume you for 8 months and then make an ass out of yourself at a graduation ceremony? Seems like pretty terrible decision making.

Okay how about this perspective. We got grad transfer from Penn State or OSU who thought he got a raw deal from their staff. During his graduation he throws up the VT. About 90% of this site would be pumped and those who say they wouldn't be are lying.

I'm fine with hating on Trevon as a homer who can't stand the U, but acting like this exposes some unique character flaw is dumb.

I would hate it and I'm not lying.

I still think it's a little different. Miami is a direct rival. There is bad blood there. If someone went from Michigan to OSU and did the O-H-I-O while walking, what do you think would happen?

And this is way more than just being excited about graduating. There are hundred if not thousands of students who are excited when they graduate about their next step and will put that on their cap, tag it on twitter or instagram, but they always make the day about being a Hokie.

Hill's (I am assuming) family showed up in Miami gear. It was about rubbing it in. It wasn't a celebration of accomplishment, it was a celebration of a departure, a man who thought himself wronged by an institution that he was above, he was better than. Look at Kumah. While Kumah has taken some pot shots on social media, he hasn't crossed any lines. Hill consistently brings it up just to get a rise.

I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Call me old school, but if we were getting a transfer with a questionable locker room issue who threw up a VT at another school's graduation, I would hope we would rescind the offer. There are too many class acts out there with good to great talent that I would rather see get the opportunity.

Given N'kosi Perry's social media blunders (car full of cash, sex tape, yada yada), I think Trevon ought to room with him, it'd be a match made in heaven.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

One thing I'm proud about our program is historically we stay away from "high baggage" transfers, so I don't think that would even happen. I mean hypothetically maybe some fans would like it, but I can say this fan would still find it trashy.

No...it just helps verify that there is a character flaw.

Overheard as Duke assistant coaches took elevator down from press box: β€œGuys, they stopped the run with a three-man front.” - David Teel Tweet 2018

LOL- this clown was kicked out of his high school. The ONLY reason he sniffed admission into a school as good as VT was because he could get to the quarterback- period. He is literally LUCKY to be anywhere near VTs campus as a student. So boosters pay for him to go to school here for 4 years, he constantly screws up, disrespects the deceased child of a coach, punches a female at a party, etc. and at his - lucky/miraculous- graduation ceromony from VT, he totally disrespects the school by flashing the sign of our biggest football rival. Yeah- classless, scum, immature, asshole, trash move. Period. If you would have done the same thing in the same circumstances please seek help. Justin Fuente is not to blame for Trevon Hill being an immature scumbag asshole.. no, that doesn't take 2 to tango.. Hill is lucky to be here this long. He should write Justin Fuente a christmas and birthday card every year in fact. two to tango, my ass. Its a privilege to go to VT- especially after you got kicked out of your high school for not being able to act like a normal student. He is a disgrace. He is accountable for his position in life and football. Ironically, that VT graduation ceremony will be the highlight of his life. He's not good enough or mature enough to have a successful pro career- I would bet good money on that.

punches a female at a party

Whoa, when did this happen? This is new to me.

That was one of the things that was hinted at but not said outright. I've heard this from two very reputable sauces, but I am not a sauce myself, so didn't feel comfortable breaking this (or saying more, for that matter).

That said, anybody know how the volleyball team did this year?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

lol. Shit like this is why he got the boot in the first place. He's already burned all his bridges, why would he stop now?

On that note, I thought there was a higher scrutiny for transfers between in conference schools partly for this reason. This seems like a situation where maybe we should have blocked the transfer. Not that he doesn't have the right to transfer and be successful somewhere else, but I just have a bad feeling he's going to do some "extra curricular activity" when he plays against us. I don't know what but it feels like a bad situation just waiting to happen.

Typical transfer restrictions don't apply to grad transfers if I recall.

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

I honestly think its a good move on our part to let this kid transfer to an in conference rival. Dude is clearly a locker room cancer and will probably end up hurting them more than help.

Now of course i reserve the right to change my stance on this if he has a monster season and ends up with 3 sacks against us.

so it's the equivalent of catapulting a plague-ridden corpse over the walls of a medieval city? I can live with doing that to Miami.

Calling this kid a clown is an insult to clowns

I'd call him a bunch of things but immature is about the best one that sums it up. Sad, really. I hope he one day realizes that his behavior was absolutely disrespectful.

I'm pretty sure he intended it to be disrespectful.

I think he doesn't yet realize that he's bring indiscriminately disrespectful. Flailing wildly because he's mad at a few people, and being a giant douche to a lot of people.

I don't know enough to know who started what between him and the coaching staff, but I'm pretty sure all the other graduating students deserve better than that.

"Your Welcome" says, the University that provided you a $90,000 degree. Shameful. If we wasn't a football player, he would have never had the opportunity or ability to obtain a sheepskin from a University like VPI & SU without all of the extra tutoring and help to get him through....Karma can be a bitch young man. There are a thousand kids that would give their left nut for that degree.

They should revoke his right to step foot in the 'burg ever again. Juvenile display to say the least. If he was my son, I'd be embarrassed and still wear him out, even at that age. Classless move for a third grader in a grown man's body.

Trevon is a douche. But so are you for assuming he couldn't get a degree without help and tutoring.

Everything he's done since this all went down has been calculated. He knows what he is doing, he knows it's disrespectful, he knows it's selfish, he knows it's distracting from the other students there. He doesn't care.

You know what, good for this kid. Even with all the drama he managed to get his degree and is proud he earned it. A lot people out there squander opportunities like his and yea he screwed up a good bit, but he didn't let that stop him from finishing. I hope he does well at Miami and is able to use his degree when his football days are over. The kid is moving on, and so should we

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

The thing is, everyone did move on until he couldn't help but disrespect Virginia Tech once again. I'll be glad when he finally does move on but I won't be holding my breath for it.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Things like this are going to make his football days shorter. He has a chance to play in the NFL but saying stuff like they took a year from him and flashing a rival schools sign at graduation are going to be asked at by NFL teams. So far he hasn't shown enough on the field to overcome the baggage he is perceived to have.

The NFL will find out what actual baggage he has because the have the money to do so.

Say what? No. Not even close. NFL is a business. If he can play at that level and they can come to contractual terms this means absolutely nothing to NFL teams.

Eh, perceived character issues definitely matter for borderline players. And they'd be used against any player to leverage better terms.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

And? As long as he has the ability to play that level he'll get signed. That's the point. There are loads of guys with questionable character that have signed and played in the NFL. They don't care as much as people think and if so, like you said, it would be as leverage to get better financial position.

Talent trumps all in the NFL, but Trevon hasn't demonstrated he has the talent to over come issues. Locker room cancers are things the NFL does stay away from.

If he grades out in the top 3 round then sure he'll get picked up by the 5th. If he grades out as a 6th round pick then he might not be picked.

Yeah... that's pretty much what I said.

I never said he did have the talent. I said IF he does have the talent and they can come to terms NFL teams will sign him. there have been a lot of locker room cancers in the NFL.

"The heart of a fool is his mouth..."

I'm not gonna lie, I saw 36 new comments on this thread this morning and wondered if Hill himself had decided to make an account and start flaming

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Josh Jackson, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

There is a clear disconnect within Trevon about the consequences of his actions. He doesn't understand why that wasn't the time or place to throw up "da U". That response would only be acceptable if he hated everything associated with VT. But according to his Twitter post it is only the football program/coaches that he has beef with....out of the hundreds of people there, maybe 2% are associated with the football program. So you are gonna disrepect a large number of people to get back at a small number of people....πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

I wish more people would do this. How about we just ignore him and talk about current VT players? We get it, hes a dick. Its time to move on.

I'm not sure what I'm going to miss the least, his antics like this or his ability to defend the run. Either way, I'm just glad he's finally gone.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

I wondering how many people are going to care about him three years from now when Hill gets cut by his third NFL team and is trying to get a tryout with the Saskatewan Roughriders.

Jesus, he's living rent free in some of y'all heads, it's time to move on.

If you felt the need to take a shot at him then maybe he's got a spare bedroom in yours as well. Just saying.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Is it really living rent free when hes literally going out of his way to shove it down the throat of VT as a whole? When he throws up the U on stage at graduation in Blacksburg there was a 0% chance it was going to be overlooked.

I'm so glad that Fuente kicked this asshole off the team. He was a talented kid, but he was also a selfish cancer. He was a terrible influence in the locker room for a young team. Get rid of him knowing that it will help the long-term future of the program.

Hill is a complete idiot.

Man you just described the perfect Miami Hurricane player. Talented but selfish cancers, and now they have a cancer of a head coach that will help encourage it.

Who's more than likely going to be lined up against him next season when we play Da U?

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

Dzansi I would assume or Darrisaw . He won't be much of a factor. We run very little 7 step/deep passing pockets anyway- maybe 2-3 a game. We will get the ball out or run zone read to the point he is not a factor. He might have a few backside tackles, but I think the matchup will be a big huge meh. Let's hope Miami runs a special defense for him for revenge.. that shit never works and always back fires. Look at how he played against ODU when he wanted to "show out" at home? he got his ass kicked by a glorified, bad D1AA team. I'm not worried.

I wasn't worried. I was just wondering who I was going to watch put him on his back all day.

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

Easiest way to make him a non factor is to run the ball at him on literally every play

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

As a alum of VT, I hope that Hill will one day recognize what a special club that is to earn a degree. I would hope petty sportsmanship stuff would eventually subside. There's a whole world outside of college football.

I just get the feeling that Hill is, in his mind, a Hurricane who happens to have a Bachelor's from VT.

Outspoken team cake advocate. Hates terrapins. Resident Macho Man Gif Poster. Distant cousin to Dork Magic. Frequently misspells words.

In my opinion, he feels that way for now because he's back in the "recruiting" scenario where the school is telling him he can do no wrong and is the best thing since sliced bread. At this point in his life he's a very selfish dude and being recruited is probably a place a guy like him loves to be. Let's see how it plays out when a little adversity hits down in Miami. Unless he matures significantly in one year I'm sure his true colors will shine through there too.

I agree, especially seeing his tweet above about having love for the school. I hope he uses the hell out of the VT degree and has a long and successful working career using said degree. At the same time I wish an inverse of success for his football career.

I look forward to seeing him on his ass on 10/5/19. LETS GO!

This might be a little controversial, but I'm going to go on record as saying this guy is worse than Marcus Vick. Even though Marcus has continued to fuck up constantly after getting booted out of Tech (it's actually been a couple years since I've heard his name in the news; should be any day now), he never shit talked the school that gave him more opportunities than he deserved. Hill should have never gotten into Tech in the first place. He didn't even finish at his high school, he finished in alternative school. He got into trouble more than once at Tech and finally sealed the deal when he did what he did after the ODU game. Too bad this year's Miami game isn't at Lane Stadium.

Disagree, Marcus Vick embarrassed the school after he was given a second chance. Whereas Hill is just only embarrassing himself after getting his second chance. Say what you want about Hill, he didn't get constantly arrested.

Hill has plenty of time. Don't count him out yet.

Marcus pulled a gun on people at McDonalds, after filming and supposedly distributing sex with a minor

Hill ain't worse than that

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Hill punched a girl at a party one time and blamed VT for him getting kicked out for numerous other things. Marcus' transgressions up to the point of his dismissal were worse than Hill's but not by that much, and he certainly wasn't blaming VT for them.

Marshall University student.
Virginia Tech fanatic.

Seriously? Debating who sucks more? Kinda hard to tell when you are at the bottom of the barrel for people. I look forward to Trevon making a fool at of himself at Miami as with a mentality like his it's only a matter of when not if.

We're between spring practice and fall camp. We have to debate about something.

I feel like comparing disgraced former VT players to Marcus Vick is like the Godwin's law of Hokie fandom.

When he was let back on campus to finish his degree I found it an odd decision. Sorry, but if you get kicked off the football team, it's likely you aren't fit to be a Hokie and I don't think they should make this decision again in the future.

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

Sorry, hard disagree. If you kick someone off the team AND kick them out of school you are basically saying that the academic scholarship is secondary to football. He earned that schollie, balled out while he was here, and it ended badly. However, he should have every opportunity to get that degree.

What I think is hard for many fans to grasp is that the team and the university are separate entities. We alums tend to think of them all together, but I can promise you that most athletes do not.

There are very few athletic policies that are not also VT rules of student conduct. It's similarly hard for me to believe that he could be dismissed from the team for something that also wouldn't get a non-athlete punished in some way (aside from stuff like being late to practice/team meeting, etc).

academic scholarship is secondary to football.

No, it's not. They go hand in hand. He's there on an academic scholarship to play football, that's part of the deal he made with the school. If he wants to act like a piece of shit and get kicked off the football team, than potentially losing the academic scholarship and all of the extra tutors, help, etc that go along with it is part of the loss too. Maybe if that was part of the equation than he would have thought a little bit harder about his choices and actions.

What I think is hard for many fans to grasp is that the team and the university are separate entities. We alums tend to think of them all together, but I can promise you that most athletes do not.

If he as an athlete thinks of them separately than why is he being an asshole and flashing Miami signs at the academic graduation? Clearly, they are not separate.

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

Do we even know if Hill was on scholarship for the fall? Maybe he paid his own way for a semester to finish the degree and then move as a grad transfer.

I don't see why getting kicked off the team would or should inherently warrant him getting dismissed from the university.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Booted from the university, maybe not. But off scholarship? I would think at least for the spring it shouldn't have been administered.

A scenario to consider for anyone who may disagree:

If you get fired from your job halfway through "peak" season, are you expecting the company to continue paying you through the end of the year?

Was he on scholarship this spring?

No idea.

Fall would have already been paid. Spring? Not sure. But I think athletic scholarships are year-by-year and renewed annually. Most likely his tuition was paid for the entire academic year.

We put the K in Kwality

Spring probably wasn't paid until the first day of the semester. That's why there were several players that waited until the second day of the semester to enter the transfer portal. I don't have any information about Hill's scholarship status for spring semester, but given the above, I highly doubt he was on scholarship.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

He was and the school and the team bent over backwards to make sure he could graduate. Because Fuente wants to see these kids get their degree.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

I'm okay with that. Helps in recruiting.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Also, if he doesn't graduate, then he doesn't grad transfer and can't play next year. CJF and the school took the high road (which they should.)

I'm assuming it also looks good for graduation stats if every person possible graduates. Disclaimer: I'm not sure exactly how the stats are calculated.

Just makes the antics look worse

I'm trying to imagine the outcry on this board if Buzz pulled someone at A&M's scholarship right now, and they weren't allowed to return to school because of that. The idea that a coach kicking someone off a team means they should be EXPELLED from the university is bonkers.

I'm on board with hoping he gets flattened on the field, and that we rush for 200 yards on his side when we play them next year. Wishing that his life got worse, and that his opportunities for his future have a potential dent put in them because he threw up a "U" at graduation? Bad look.

I don't fault a 21-22 year old for not thinking long term (beyond 3 months). However, unless he's good enough for NFL teams to overlook his "off the field" concerns he will have to rely on that VT degree in the future. You know who values the VT degree the most who hire? VT Alums who hire VT grads.

I've heard Miami has something called a turnover chain which apparently gets broken out when Miami creates a turnover?

I guess they didn't mention it or show it because they created no turnovers?

Was ridiculous how many times they showed that juvenile thing considering it was never "needed." In fairness tho they showed the Vt lunchpail pretty much every time they showed the idiotic chain.

One of those symbols seemed to be working more than the other.

That's because the one actually means something and has a history.

I'm not mad at the team members for this pic, but the optics don't look the best with all the outside noise about how the locker room is still in turmoil under CJF. For our starting QB to be apart of this, carries some bad optics too. Not "mad" at the picture, just disappointed to see team members especially one of our defensive senior leaders posing with the enemy. Just my take.

All of this talk about "optics." It's an individually applying their own world view to a situation...and most likely doesn't match that of those in the pic, or the ones liking the pic. Kids today understand that not every situation is for them, but they can still carry friendships and take pics like this. Don't apply "old school" ways to new school situations.

Besides, what optics are we talking about? That a 19 year old kid has friends that came to visit and he snapped a pic with them...with all of them happy in the pic. What's the optics? Bad optics is us spitting at him, shoving him away, turning our back, refusing to shake hands, hitting him after the play. That's bad optics. This, this is just a pick of some happy teenagers.

I completely agree, which is why I won't go as far as the Twitter-sphere VT fans and say this is unacceptable. I've had friends in my past, that on the outside would've translated to bad optics, and I didn't care what people thought.

I'm not telling the kids how to live their life, as much as I'm saying that IF we lose our next game against RI, all the talk of the locker room disorder will return rather quickly. I totally understand that will happen regardless if we lose to the Rams, but I assure you, every pundit, angry fan, and opposing coach will use this picture as fuel to the fire.

I hope it doesn't play out this way, for the sake of the team and the fan base.

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

Agree to disagree then Nerf, clearly you don't have an issue with it, and that's cool. I'm on the opposite side of the fence though, and I believe that every kid HAS to know by now that the program is under fire here lately. I mean look at all the players/coaches who mocked the College Gameday comments from this past weekend. They hear the chatter.

Providing ammunition for those who are chattering just seems a little careless in my opinion. It's not a bad decision, but just a careless one. And maybe they don't care, maybe they do, but as I said further up, we lose to the Rams, this picture will be the ammunition that's used against this program. I would simply prefer that ammunition to stay behind closed doors and in the DM's. Just my personal opinion, no beef with you and your opinion.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #YNWA

The Gameday chatter was over getting boat raced by a 14 point dog by 35 at home and taking the worst home loss in 50 years. It was deserved. But that had nothing to do with Trevon or this pic. The situations are separate.

Again, you are applying your thoughts to a total situation like it's fact. I don't think 16 year old kids give a flying about this pic. Given I have one and another a few years older that both have played sports and follow sports, this just doesn't affect them in the slightest. And for the pundits, they have to say something to prove the reason for the shellacking we got from Duke. Any other time that wouldn't happen. But it did. They don't follow VT football like a lot of us do, so on the surface, they jump to the conclusion that something else must be wrong...like the clubhouse. It's chatter and means nothing.

It must be really fun to flash the U. I haven't tried it, but guys do it all the time. The picture would have been better if all the VT guys had VT hands to "combat" Hill's U, would have made the picture look more playful.
I don't care I'd guys are friends with Hill, if he was your friend he should be your friend, people make mistake no need to end a friendship over a rivalry in a game.

I agree. If our team flashed the VT, this would be a totally fun family ribbing each other kind of photo.
