    Wasn't meant as a jab. I don't remember when his last day is supposed to be (or was).

    LOL, we play middle of the ACC, which is the 5th best conference and so all is good right? I guess if you're shooting for mediocre results, then you're right where you want to be.

    were we the only offer? if so, how again is our pay "uncompetitive"? If not, and our pay is uncompetitive, why come here?

    Good question.............

    .......let's see:



    Cost of Living is lower.
    Less stress at VT than at a Auburn (or an L.s.u.)

    Good schools.
    Pretty dang safe/nice place all told.
    We prolly have the nicest group of peeps in Jamerson you will collectively find in B.c.s. terms.
    Frank's great family-guy rep' tends to make for very solid job security.
    et al...

    Good points. But how much of a draw is that to top talent (taking BF out of the equation for now)? Do top talent care about less stress, better job security, nice people?

    Now stop worrying about paying top dollar. That is about to change!

    UVA has made a secret board of trustees decision to get out of football to concentrate on lacrosse, rugby, and chess. They've decided their school simply cannot compete at the top level so they will focus all football money on a proven, consistent winner- Virginia Tech.

    This new found source of enormous funds will allow us to build a new 110,000 seat stadium that will be state of the art. Already plans for new hotels to attract Charlottesville's elite are being planned behind closed doors. The new facility is being eyed by the NFL for future Superbowls. Look for expansion of Blacksburg airport to accommodate more private air traffic.

    TSL will benefit of course!

    alright vthokie2000, you have proven the point that Virginia Tech will never win an MNC. Virginia Tech is a wonderful place. But we don't have mountains like that.
