    Am I the only one who had no idea...

    that former Hokie OL coach JB Grimes, from the 1990s Hokie offensive line glory days, is the OL coach at Auburn this year?

    They replaced Grimes who we hired with Grimes who used to coach here.

    I just wish we would STOP with the zone blocking read option crap and line up in the I, put a hat on a hat and run the tailback behind the fullback through a designated gosh-danged hole. There is NO REASON why this program shouldn't be able to find 5 fat guys who can move some people out of the way and clear a lane for a back to get through!

    hmmm.

    Well we still never had OL that looked like that:

    Why did Grimes leave Tech after the 1997 season? Prior to the past couple of years, the 97 offense was one of the worst under Beamer.

    seems like grimes has found his game since leaving Tech.

    Did you also know that Stinespring was J.B. Grimes assistant line coach from 1994 to 1997? Stinespring was promoted to the OL line coach job when Grimes left Tech for Texas A&M after the 1997 season.

    Grimes has also coached for 11 different programs in his near 40 years career.

    Mine did, too, but I'll admit there's not many pieces to pick up.
