Practice Report: Hokies begin 2013 season

Practice was open to the media for about an hour on Monday, so we were able to come away with some observations about specific players and coaches.

Jeff Grimes: The Great Communicator

With all due respect to Ronald Reagan, I think this nickname might be better applied to Jeff Grimes.  I’ve been impressed with his ability to communicate from the very first time I interviewed him.

I’m not the best interviewer in the world.  I was never trained to do it, and in general I’m better at answering questions than asking them.  I don’t phrase things particularly well sometimes…I guess I’m the anti-Jeff Grimes.  Despite all that, Grimes always understands exactly what I’m talking about, and answers the question perfectly.  I said similar things about Grimes in this article back in January.
