Monday Thoughts: Challenges ahead for Babcock


I went to Saturday’s hoops game against Maryland, and Virginia Tech fans wanted to talk about two things: Tech’s chances of signing Derrick Nnadi, and WHAT WHIT BABCOCK IS GOING TO ABOUT THE BASKETBALL PROGRAMS.

Alas, I have no inside scoop about what’s going on in Derrick Nnadi‘s mind, so that “section” of this article is going to be brief.

Back when I first started TSL, I used to get excited about individual recruits. If you go WAY back, you remember that my first “favorite recruit” was 1996 signee Jeremy Kishbaugh, a 6-3, 230-pound LB/FB out of “national high school champion” (whatever that means) Berwick High School in Berwick, PA.
