Let me do an exercise with folks in this thread.

I'm going to list the coaches and players who have done press conferences since February 1st, and when they did them. I'm also going to list other media opportunities we've had, plus features that have been released by VT via social media (in this case, just YouTube).

The reason I picked that date: the football schedule was released at the end of January (the 28th), and a few days later, J.C. Price was hired (February 2nd). In looking over our archives, since then there have been many appearances by coaches and players in front of the media.

When I'm done, I'll post links to our football article archives, so you can step through them and see what we're producing, and I'll post a link to hokiesports YouTube, so you can see all the videos that have come out.

My point is to let everyone know what is out there, and to determine if the comments about "lack of access/info" are the results of (1) not having seen what's out there, or (2) having seen it, yet thinking it's not enough. Because those are two different discussions.

Ready? Here we go .... PC means "press conference" ... basically a Zoom call with the media at this point.

4 PC's by former players (Pro Day)
4 "Conversations with Coaches"
2 "Get to Know" videos
-- and a handful of other videos and features, including an awesome "mic'd up" feature, plus we actually got to go to a practice (faints)


What are everyone's thoughts on seeing the full list? I have a few thoughts, but I'll keep them to myself for now.
