2019 Spring Practice Starts Tomorrow

And there wasn't a thread on the first page, so I decided to start one. This is how I know we're a basketball school now..

Anyone thinks we'll be able to keep Buzz if we make him head coach of the basketball AND football team?

YAY FOOTBALL!!!

Well... I think we can say now that this is ALL Fuente's team.

With last year's personnel and "cultural" changes, I'm really excited to see how (or if) the team responds. Who will be the new leaders? What will be the personality and character of this team going forward? Will this team finally gel and be loyal to each other and give themselves to the team?

Maybe we'll get an initial glimpse over the next month! I really hope we look back at this time next fall as the start of something special!

Put up or shut up time, it start snows now

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.

I tried to think about what I would have to see from Spring practice to make me forget about Buzz leaving and nothing came to mind...

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

A starting QB announcement would pretty much do it, but I'm not expecting one.

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

If you would have told me 6 years ago that on the first day of spring ball, this board would be way more focused on basketball, I would have laughed in your face. Thank God football is back. Here's to over analyzing 15 second videos on Instagram trying to determine who our starting QB is!!!

There are no more walk ons so who are we going to salivate over from the spring game.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

They slow the video down to make it seem longer than what it is.

This is the least excited I've ever been for spring football. There are only 5 media opportunities and no open scrimmages. There are two 20-minute periods to watch stretching and drills. Hooray. And the spring game is not televised. The excitement of spring has been sucked right out of the air.

I really don't think VT as an institution realizes how much bigger an impact their requests for more donations would have if they'd just let us see the team in action during the Spring.

I wholeheartedly concur. If you want me to invest in a product, why don't you try to get me a little excited about it or God forbid give me a halfhearted sales pitch. I can't get excited about spring football because I have access to next to no information and I will not be able to watch the spring game. I fail to see how this generates to a better product.

I believe March is the end of the HokieClub giving year. It would've been such an easy win to open up a couple of practices to media and fans and to get some excitement into the air ahead of that. Missed opportunities abound.

What is Fuente trying to hide? I just don't get the isolationist moves.

I'm not convinced he is trying to "hide" anything per se. I suspect he believes it's advantageous to restrict media and fan access to the program. However, he's squandering a natural advantage of Virginia Tech, its rabid fanbase. It makes no sense why spring football, for a 6-7 team, has to be so secretive. Fans have invested a lot of time and money into the program and more and more it the message is 'we'll let you know when we need you'. That's how folks lose interest.

Don't think I've ever heard this stated so clearly.

I'll try tweet @ him and Whit, this helped when we needed a press release about the exodus.

We need more younger voices at the Hokie club soribg meeting making these points.

Puts even more pressure on Fuente to deliver results on the field (now) without generating any goodwill from the "invested fan." If you're only going to give us Saturday's in the fall, that's all we have to judge you on the rest of the year.

First carefully edited video of the spring is out featuring HH completing an out.

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

I was JUST going to post this. QP out here looking like a man amongst boys....yeesh (pythons)

Oh, yes....the slow motion videos that show next to nothing.

Finally I can stop caring about basketball!
