Bring on the Puns!!!!!!

I am so happy to have my Hooker back.

In shock after all the recruiting he did

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Hendon: "Hey Coach Freeze, what's up?"
Coach Freeze: "Damnit, wrong Hooker"

it would appear that trevon hill is NOT an ace recruiter as that is 2 guys hes let VT swoop in and flip late in the process.

I love it when a good Hooker stays around.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

That means you didn't pay them enough

Good. A Hooker really helps when recruits have official visits.

I heard Pitino is looking to get back to the states. Defense quality control?

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

How do we un-burn-down everything from the Hooker enters the Transfer Portal thread?

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

You need to go back to the Kumah thread first because it had already elevated to scorched earth napalm mode by that point.

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

Ya'll gonna make him transfer again with all these Hooker jokes..

Fuente reeling them back in!

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

It is probably just as much absence of interest elsewhere as well! He wanted to see what was out there and found out there was not much.

I don't think I have ever been this excited to see a Hooker stick around

Props to Fuente and staff for staying in touch with the kid and not kicking him to the curb

Fuente is not the type of guy to kick Hooker to the Curb

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

Also says Fuente read him right. You wanna go then go. But you won't find greener grass. And greener grass was not found.

Even if this is primarily so that he can get his degree and ultimately grad transfer, this is still great news for QB depth. If he wants to come back and stick it out and compete I'm all for that as well. Either way it's a win.

HH glad to see you are returning. Look forward to seeing you do great things.

As long as the Hooker doesn't smell of whiskey and feet, I'm down.

Oh god are you telling me that he spent time with Rex Ryan?

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

No no, if that was the case he would smell like feet

So I guess that means Lawson won't be coming back?

Does this change anything with respect to Braxton Burmeister? I have to imagine that it would.

No, because he would have to sit out a year either way.

There was some chatter about Burmeister being immediately eligible -- i guess that isn't the case.

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

He would need a waiver. He is a west coast kid so I am not sure what angle he could use to get the waiver. With all I have had on my plate lately, I could have missed something.

I just want to gauge the room

Does it still feel like Fuente has lost the locker room?

I think Fuente just pimp slapped the locker room. And they liked it.

I think normally you have to pay a little extra for that.

Never felt like he lost it...

This is a good thing. I think Hooker has talent, there isn't depth in the quarterback room, and I haven't heard anything about him being a bad kid. Best case, he finds himself and becomes a successful player. Worst case, he graduates and gets his degree and then can transfer without having to drop a level and play immediately. I think he has the ability to suddenly make noise if the light goes on.

Now it's time to bring back Kumah.

Only if he can flip Asante

I would be shocked.

I approve. Those nameless faceless hookers deserve justice, Craig!

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

color me shocked that neither Miami or Louisville could secure a hooker.

This is going to cost us a lot in the long run.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Hookers always do....

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

Nope, but I miss a lot since I'm deaf in my right ear.

Yep, same here. Same ear, even. But I still got the joke. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

"Tajh Boyd over the middle . . . and it's caught for an interception! Michael Cole, lying flat on his back, ARE YOU KIDDING???"

No worries! I'm a space cadet sometimes.

Excellent! I've been waiting for him to suit up in number 98 and sneak in for our fake punter formation under the guise that he is Oscar Bradburn on a 4th and 10 from our own 3 against Pitt. 108 yard run later and Narduzzi is in full on meltdown mode from taking the bait.

No matter what they may be whispering to you, the Hooker will always last longer.

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

Hooker saying, "The post always rots out before the hole".

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Ewwww

There is nothing in the world like Thursday night in Blacksburg!

I guess Richard Gere never showed up with the limo.

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

Clearly we are not paying our players since Hooker is still here.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Looks like Fuente picked up the same Hooker twice

If he does it again, I think Liberty will offer him a job.

Craig James is still king of getting rid of Hookers

Something something prostitute.

Am I doing this right?

Seems like you've really got your hendon the pulse of this thread

I'm kinda upset no one has referenced "Pretty Woman" regarding the fact we're keeping a Hooker around for an extended period of time...

It wasn't a perfect analogy.

"Take care of the little things and the big things will come."

One bad snap which was the center's fault and this Kid doesn't get to play anymore. I was so annoyed with Fuente and Cornelsen Bringing it up over and over again. I think he has talent and should have been given some plays instead of Quincy. I hope he proves Fuente wrong.

Just for fun, his senior season highlights

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

What are you talking about?

It's Time to go to Work

Cornelson/ Fuente put him in the dog house for fumbling a bad snap that went high. They immediately put Patterson right after and Hooker never saw his chance the rest of the season

That's certainly not "Bringing it up over and over again". I'm not sure if that really "put him in the dog house" or not but Fuente was pretty transparent about why Patterson had a package and not Hooker once Jackson went down.

It's Time to go to Work

It wasn't just a bad snap. It was messing up the entire operation and not being ready to get in the game. The bad snap was unfortunate, but it's not that simple.

You have to be in command of the calls or you can't get started at QB period. Forget speed, arm strength, accuracy etc.

Are you listening to the same press conferences?

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

It seems like you might have listened to the same one on repeat, so I guess not.

It's Time to go to Work

They also referenced putting Patterson in because HH was now the backup QB making QP the running package Quarterback, vs when JJ was the starter with Willis as the backup and HH in the running package spot.

VT '17

It was a bad snap but from the video I analyzed it looked like it hit him in the hands and he deflected it over his head.

The red circles are where I was able to find the ball in each frame of the video and the line traces its path from the center to contact with Hooker and then some. You can see a major trajectory change right where Hooker is standing. That's because he deflected the ball with his hands.

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

This is why I love TKP!

Analyzing one insiginificant snap of the previous season like it's the Zapruder film.

Haha. Leg for commenting.

I beg to differ for two reasons.

The first is that there are a number of people that feel that Hooker was unfairly benched over a bad snap that he had no control over. I think most coaches would agree that a snap that hits you in the hands, even at face level, is one that you must field.

The second is that last season there was no such thing as an insignificant snap save the W&M game. Every snap mattered in every other game.

I'd get to the Zapruder Film next but I'm afraid of this guy:

via GIPHY

I highly doubt one snap cost him the season. It's a body of work thing. Coaches felt he wasn't secure with the ball before and after that snap. And I'm sure plenty of other factors unrelated to ball security were weighed as well.

Vols Fans are more delusional than LOLUVA

Hokie in Tennessee

Not sure if this is a direct reply to my post. I don't think this is the reason, just showing that the ball wasn't snapped over his head.

There could also be his performance Sunday-Friday leaves something to be desired.

Certainly. I think we often forget the coaches see these guys far more than we do in situations that are far less taxing than games.

I'd make a pun right now but I'm not going to whore myself for legs like a common Hooker.

Talk is cheap.

Pillow talk isn't

I think we all can agree if Hooker is still on the team when we play Liberty it will be FANTASTIC!

Hopefully someone closer to the team can confirm this but I heard they recently named the spring captains and they get a "C" on their practice uniform. They were all so excited Hooker was coming back that all the captains jumped on him. Hooker was covered in C men!!

Using /s is for cowards.

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

Glad to hear HH is staying, and to have him staying home with Hokie Nation. Now get back to work, young man!

Reading his statement when he "left" to enter the Portal, and this statement in returning from the Portal is a text book class act on how to handle what has got to be a very difficult decision making situation for a young man. Pure tactfulness and class at both turns. Glad to have this young man remain amongst Hokie Nation, others could learn much from the way he handled this.

Guuys...SSSTTTTAAAAHHHPPP

Hooker can actually throw the ball unlike QP III, don't get me wrong, I still like QP's intangibles but I like Hooker's abilities more for our offense.

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

Since QP didn't throw any last year and ran a run heavy offense in HS I'm going to assume you're just guessing at this and using Hendon's high school film then I'm going to laugh at your assumption.

Both have proven little if anything at all in actual games. Saying either is better at throwing is laughable at this point in their careers.

(add if applicable) /s

Spring practice is going to be interesting. Herndon impressed in his first camp coming out of high school. The light just hasn't come on but he has incredible physical talent. If he can put it together, he is a home run threat throwing or running every time he touches the ball. Arguably the most dangerous QB we've had since MV, but he's got to put it together mentally.

Having him and QP battling it out for 2020 would be great becuase both of these guys have super high ceilings.

TT would like a word with you...

VTCC '86 Delta Company, Hokie in Peru, TKPC#490, One of us!

With the beef we have on the O-line....I would think that soon any quarterback will have the ability to throw the ball.

JP

^^^^correct...it starts in the trenches!

"Take care of the little things and the big things will come."

Wow, so many happy to keep a Hooker around.

A relatively new Hooker is good to have around. Did I do this right?

I would say we're getting a hooker we know and has already been around the guys, so even better!

Has any one heard the rumors thatPatriots Owner Robert Kraft is interested in Hooker?

Came here to make this joke, looks like I'm 18 hours too late.

Well don't be too upset, I thought it would crush and it's only got 2 likes

You're up to 10 as of this comment. Upvotes are a bit harder to solicit in the offseason.

I'm hearing Robert Kraft will get off

Tech's 6am workout shirts just have "LOYALTY" written across the front of them. Fuente sending a pretty strong message within the program at least.
