This is a huge win . Rudolph is on track to build a program through strength

Rudolph is really living up to the hype so far. I can't wait until were running up the gut for 3-4 yards and the defense knows were doing it but can't stop it.

Hell yeah!!!

Keep 'em coming Coach Rudolph. It could be a fun ride.

Edit: Highest rated commit so far in what is currently the 20th ranked class (overall and composite) according to 24/7.

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.

Suck it, Mountaineers!

Yeah! Chop that wood!

Rick Monday... You Made a Great Play...

I also root for: The Keydets, TexAggies, NY Giants, NY Rangers, and Braves.

Big win, VT went in behind the other schools relationship wise and made up ground quickly

I feel really good about the future of our O-Line and if Vice could get a lot out of undervalued/under recruited players I am really excited to see what Rudolph can do because for the next year or 2 we will need that.


It starts in the trenches, baby!

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

Rudolph and Pry are building it in the trenches, lovin' it!

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

The beef is in our recruiting class

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Ghannam 6-5 280
Arena 6-5 285
Williams 6-4 306
Hammer 6-6.5 272

That's damn near 2/3rds of a ton of beef

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74


Bob: What would ya say ya do here?

Brad: I already told you! I iron out the minutiae so Justin doesn't have to. I have people skills dammit! What the hell is wrong with you people?

Coach Rudolph pulling in the big uglies. Keep doing that work. Go Hokies!!

Am I reading this right? He's the top rated recruit in WV? You know the state, the one that the song Country Roads by John Denver isn't about?

We got better today! Nothing like a Layth to handle the rough work!

Can confirm - a Layth is an excellent way to turn a rough blank into a finished project in an astonishingly short amount of time.

I struggled to find a way to incorporate turning into a lathe joke. Thanks for being smarter than me.

Idk about smarter, I just have one in my workshop ๐Ÿ˜

Well then thanks for having better hobbies and/or careers than me!

Kudos to both for being "smart" and having the "hobby" to be on The Key Play. I enjoy reading everyone's comments and opinions.

I seldom speak to loluva grads, but when I do, I tell them I want large fries.

Once I get through my current project, I've got a pen blank from the old Cassell seats. I'll post it up once it's finished.

We would bloody our fingertips hand sharpening our gravers to get a perfect cutting edge in watchmaking school.

A likely story.

A likely story excellent username comment synergy!

The Cup is going nowhere Mikey!

It's clear that Rudolph's pitch and reputation combined with Pry's personality is resonating with O line recruits.

My Dad and I have always had this theory that VT could be O line U if it focused like Nebraska did in the 70's and 80's. You have the culture, less of a recruiting hurdle for the top skill guys and it's more of a developmental position than anything else.

If built right you can use the reputation of having a perennially strong O line to recruit skill guys more effectively than before. The sequence matters and so far (it's way early) the plan seems right to me.

Niceeeee. Rudolph out here producing more beef than a cattle ranch. Big recruit!

This makes getting the skill guys a little bit easier. Liking what I see so far.

Little know fact: this guy was named after a potato chip commercial Mike Tyson did 18years ago.

EDIT: I couldn't find a Mike Tyson endorsement from just 18 years ago to photoshop. I had to reach way farther back. Man that makes me feel old.
