Throwback Thursday: Photo of Virginia Tech Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster from 1985 is Glorious

Throwback Thursday has finally earned its keep.

[@VT_Football]

The Hokies won't play football for another 102 days, and the Virginia Tech athletic department is seemingly biding some of its time by flipping through an old media guide for the benefit of Hokie Nation. Tech shared this gem of a photo of defensive coordinator Bud Foster from his stint as an assistant coach at Murray State in 1985.

Perusing old photos of Bud Foster is a tried and true way to make it through the long offseason and arrive to September sane and in one piece. (If you really want to make a dent in the clock, read the feature I wrote on Foster last year.)

Plan for the worst and hope for the best, not the other way around.
