I'll bite. None of the three plays football for VT. Do I win?

There is no common denominator between the three, other than all three at one point or another were "pledged" to VT.

Otherwise they are all different.

Capehart lied to Fuente. Said he was committed to VT, and wasn't going to visit any other schools, then before the words were finished being spoken, he was off to Maryland for an official visit. Could this have been handled better by Fuente, probably. If Fuente had it to do over, he probably would have done thing a bit different.

Goode just didn't want to put the work in to get to a point he would be an asset for VT. Remember, Tim Settle, when he arrived, he was out of shape, carrying much too much weight. But also remember, Settle was driven to get to the NFL, so he put in all the hard work in the weight room, and worked with the nutritionists. He eventually played well for VT and left early for the NFL. Goode didn't have that drive, so he left the program.

Unfortunately, Hill just had anger issues that he was never able to control. Also remember, he left his high school, and had to finish his senior year at a private school. And it's been said, he had numerious clashes with the rules/other players(?), and other staff(?). Seems like the aftermath of the ODU game was the straw that broke the camel's back.
