  1. Welcome aboard and thanks for taking the job. Don’t let ’em work you too hard. Looking forward to your work.

  2. Thanks everyone for welcoming me on board! Sorry to deter some of you by being a Cowboys fan… looks like I’ll just have to win you guys over with my coverage.

  3. Cory you’ve landed in a great spot with a large base of pretty reasonable readers. Please get started on your Jermey Webb’s miraculous Achilles heal !

    1. Cory you are working with the best. Seen the founders work since Hokie central. You don’t need me to tell ya what to do. Learn from the brass and ask all questions. There are no bad questions. Congrats.

  4. Welcome to the football beat… I’ll try not to hold that Cowboys thing against you too much.

  5. Sounds like a good hire…..except the Cowboys angle….well, there IS the matter of their cheerleaders! 😉

  6. Cory, this is a great opportunity for you and I’m sure that your promotion is well deserved. Congratulations 🎉 I look forward to your insights as a student Hokie, representing our future.

  7. Look forward to seeing your articles. Welcome to the Main Sport… Football.. and all the Others.

    1. Please excuse the dumb question, but what happened to Ricky? I don’t read TSL much during the off-season, so if there was some kind of announcement, I missed it. However, I don’t see Ricky’s bylines here any more and, meanwhile, I see “Other News” links on the TSL home page to his blog. Did Ricky start up his own VT sports gig?

        1. TSL has done a good job at making his departure a non-story… or maybe a bad job, depending on how curious you are.

        2. Thanks for the Twitter link. Reading that sure made my eyebrows furl a bit. It took forever to load because of all the comments. All I know is that there’s always two sides to every story…..

      1. Ricky has a blog which appears from time to time in the margin of this

  8. Hey, what are they trying to pull here – he doesn’t look at all like Dick or Jerry.

    Welcome aboard, even tho you’ve been here a while.

  9. Welcome aboard in a more involved capacity Cory. Take advantage of the opportunity and give us some good content!
