Because I looked at our specific scenario, and what our deficiencies were.


It was clear to me the reason we didn't rise above the glass ceiling is because of our own self-inflicted wounds! I have stated them over and over, but I'm sure you'll ask, and you are new here. Or not, since I think you are the former clown known as "amptech" back in the day...

Some self-inflicted wounds as I see them are:

Beamer not recruiting a larger radius.

Beamer promoting Stiney instead of hiring an actual OC with credentials to match. And yes we could do that back then.

Beamer's spotlight game coaching gaffs making us choke on the big stage.

Beamer's offensive philosophy hurting play on the field, and then hurting recruiting.

Weaver not forcing Frank to change OC after 08. Stiney should've been fired/demoted then.

Weaver not forcing the Hokie Club to take fundraising beyond a transaction for tix and parking.

None of that has anything to do with any other program or any glass cellings. We were media darlings for a loooong time and didn't capitalize on it. What other non-blue bloods did or didn't do has no relevance to anything VT did or didn't do...
