    Virginia Tech fans gave Curt Newsome 7 years as OL Coach and Bryan Stinespring 11 years as OC.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a more "patient" fan base in the entire country.

    Not that they really have a say, anyway. As has been pointed out in this thread, no one who matters cares what the fans think (see line 1).
    There's a difference between a "fact" and an "opinion that you agree with."

    Yeah, if you were "impatient" you were not a TrueHokie and a bad fan and a VT hater. When you were really just smart and observant.

    Thanks. Nobody has ever said I was smart and observant before.

    You were including me, weren't you? My Self esteem is really low after the last 2 seasons.

    It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.

    To the original point... do we have a choice?

    Lets put it this way, it would be VERY difficult for the OL to have been any worse than it was under Newsome, so as long as the unit shows improvement (which shouldn't be hard) why would we get rid of Grimes?

    Agreed. And let's be honest... Even if the OL continues to be an annual embarassment, does Beamer have it in him to go through another round of firings and hirings before he retires?
