Unfair comparison


Frank's age allowed opposing coaches to poach quality players by saying that Beamer wouldn't be around. I seem to recall that he'd had the most consecutive 10 win seasons for a pretty long time.The game didn't pass him by - opponents used the age factor to steal recruits and as a result of lower ranked recruiting he was deprived of 3s and 4s. Thus - .500 and slightly better records at the end. Kind of like playing your 11 against their 11 plus the refs.
PS: Frank was elected into the HOF in his first year of eligibility. I'll go out on a limb and say now that we will not have another VT coach selected in his first year. I feel pretty confident in that prediction.
