"I love it when you guys try to write off a Frank Beamer team -- no one is going to win this conference without Virginia Tech having some sort of say in it." - David Cutcliffe
I guess we'll find out what LT looks like when he gets to throw to receivers that run good routes and get separation from DBs and LBs. Even the worst of the receivers in camp next year will be light years better than what he had this year. And how often have you heard someone say that a pass wasn't catchable by an NFL receiver because it was thrown too hard? I've seen Wes Welker catch some major bullets on very short passes and he rarely drops them...and if he does, it's not because it was thrown too hard.
I believe some of you have forgotten that Stiney was effective in 757 where the major talent is. Beamer moved him out of that area when Newsome came on board, reduced his recruiting responsibilities so he could focus more on OC duties.
That was a double whammy. He can be an effective recruiter for us in 757, but he's going to have to work on repairing damage done and somehow working with the 7 on 7 influence.
