Damn, almost brought a tear to my unsentimental ass. Good Luck in retirement Bud, you have earned it!

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:
“I served in the United States Navy"

KCCO

I'll be the one.
You cry... out your ass?

Usually after Taco Tuesday

or by Friday of the Dietrick Chili Challenge

Yep, often blood. Ulcerative Colitis is a hell of a disease! 😉

Change the rules, Bud Foster deserves to be in the college football HOF.

This^^^^^!!!!!!!

GameDay has always been supportive of VT and even when we tried to get #GameDay4Frank, Fowler recorded a message to us about the hashtag.

Maybe if we start #BudFoster4HallOfFame and @Gameday enough, they'll discuss it on air. And if they do, you know they'd agree 100%.

So all you tweeters - #BudFoster4HallOfFame

Well done.

Grant Foster looks like a thinner Matthew Mcconaughey somehow.

Could someone turn the allergies down in here please??

Always Jumping even from hours away.

TG in the video. A clue to our next DC?

I can't watch it all right now, but my eyeballs are wet.

I was noticing that too. Seemed like a lot of face time if the athletic dept didn't have ongoing ties there.

Dang interwebs, with their onion slicing ninjas got me looking like I walked through a downpour.

The Mud Dogs are going to the Bourbon Bowl!!!

Awesome... Love the current NFL player angle as well. Recruits and current players will connect more with that. congrats Bud, you are the best that ever did it.

Shit....

Man that was a tough watch...lost my dad in April, and he absolutely LOVED Bud Foster, so yeah, this video did me in. Will miss him. Best to ever do it...

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #YNWA

Man, people in my office have got to stop dicing onions.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Yall got me like...

Is it basketball season yet?

This hug needs to happen...many times over

Let's Go

HOKIES

Man losing Frank was hard enough but now I feel like an empty nester.

Using /s is for cowards.

Thank you, Bud!!!!!!!

Well, F me. I hope he blitzes every damn play Saturday! Let's Go!!!!

to Paraphrase-
Coach Yoast: Foster: All right now, I don't want them to gain another yard! You BLITZ ALL NIGHT!!! If they cross the line of scrimmage, I'll take every last one of you out! You make sure they remember FOREVER the night they played the Hokies!!!
[defense cheers]
Coach Yoast Foster: Leave no doubt!

Congrats to Bud Foster. UVA's Daddy.

UVa has only won 3 times against Bud in his DC history. Let's keep it that way.

The is only one bud, dude had a hell of a run. He did more with less than any coach in college football. He was a no excuse, in your face, get it done kind of guy. Damn, have fun replacing that

I really hope they name the DC position after him, or someone gives an endowment to make that happen. I'm grateful to have witnessed some of the genius that was Bud Foster's defense and it's going to be very hard to imagine someone else taking the reigns next year.

Thank you, Bud.

Side node: I wonder if they'll do the Thank you! Fos-ter! like they did for Beamer.

Damn. Great video. Even better coach. Even if we win it all one day it'll never feel the same without Bud. I really hope more than ever we hire someone from his coaching tree to carry on the LPD. I know there are limited options but it would feel a lot better to me if he hands over the reigns to a former player/coach.

That guy needs a statue right beside Beamer. They are everything that is Virginia Tech Football.

Gobble Till You Wobble

they did set it up to cater pretty well to Bud book-ending the opposite end of the bench

I would rather the statue of Bud being in his trademarked crouch next to Beamer. Neither would have had the same level of success without their partner.

Man, it's going to be so weird not having Bud as the DC. The greatest DC of all time for me, an absolute legend.

Doubt any coaches will ever mean what he and Beamer mean to me.

It is going to be a very tough pill to swallow.

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

What are the chances they announce a fire breathing Bud statue that is gonna go right next to Frank on the bench?

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

UPDATE- I didn't realize other people were also talking about a statue for him. I don't drink anymore so someone have one for me.

I don't give a damn what the fans think cause, quite frankly, I know what the fans want better than they do.

Got me in the feels

(add if applicable) /s

Damn, Coach Foster must have spit Grant right out of his mouth. That dude is a carbon copy of his dad.

I loved that Antone referenced the "played his nuts off!" presser. When somebody that matters gets your back like that, it stays with you forever. Every kid in the country should have been beating down the door to Blacksburg to play for that man.

If there are any players reading this, you do EVERYTHING you can Saturday to pitch a shutout. Don't do it for yourselves, or us stupid fans, you do it for Bud.

Whit could bring in Saint Peter to be the DC next year and I'm still going to feel empty inside.

Leonard. Duh.

As soon as the Exumtaur started telling that story I knew exactly what he was talking about.

Oh my god I forgot about Exumtaur. Sigh those were the days.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Right? He stole Katherine Webb and took residence in the stadium woods.

Don't forget about Exum Island Daycare.

That suit MV7 is wearing 🔥🔥🔥

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Dapper as hell. And he was the most eloquent speaker of the bunch, too.

When MV7 was released from prison, Tony Dungy agreed to be his 'personal coach.' I remember seeing Dungy interviewed at the time, and saying that he was making Vick do was get a speech coach to get better at public speaking. Boy did that pay off.

Twitter me

Damn right it did.

They did an excellent job on that tribute.

Beamer and Foster made VT football into what it is. Their history is VT football history. One and the same. They're great men, and VT football is the best tribute to them.

Also, I'm OK if they let Torrian Gray take over for Bud.

Thanks, Bud, and Go Hokies.

Wonderful video. I wonder how long it would have been if we could have heard from all the greats from all his defenses.

MV7 wasn't even a defensive player but he got in the mix. I would have loved to have heard from all the Fullers and all the Edmundi, since Trey should have been a linebacker. Adibis. Hall. Taylor. Moore. Loved to see Darryl Tapp in there, I met that guy and he was an awesome dude.

It was a little sobering hearing his son fumble a bit with the 'Now he can make up for that, but he doesn't need to make up for anything' bit.

Didn't know Tapp got on the Vanderbilt staff.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

We are going to need to bring Tapp home at some point.

I was on that fucking campus in August, if I'd known I would have tried to see a practice 😕

The last of the old guard. I hope these new coaches continue the proud tradition and make a few of their own. This 6-6 shit aint going to cut it, the bar is set much higher than that...and Bud put it there.

The Dude Abides

Love Coach Beamer's subtle jab: "...he didn't get on the field because of his great speed."

I'm not crying...you're crying. Thank you, Bud.

Reach for Excellence!

Proud Hokie since 2004.

Really hate I'm not going to be at the game tomorrow. VT football will never be the same. Never. Drinking one for Bud this weekend

"These people are losing their minds" - Mike Patrick

definitely shed a tear or two watching that video

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

After watching this video I'm about 60% certain Torrian Gray will be our DC next year.

The license plate on my car is a Hokie plate "LPD WIN". Bud is and always will be the man. Not just a legend in the game, but OUR legend.
