Expecting Virginia Tech to close on a 5-star recruit is like watching Titanic and expecting the ship to miss the iceberg. I (again) made the decision to choose to believe we were actually going to land Sweat, only to be disappointed in the end.

As a history major, you would think I’d learn my lesson. History repeats itself all the time, and a lot of people simply can’t learn from the past. I guess I’m one of them, at times. We should have known, from past history, that Josh Sweat would not pick Tech. I’ll try not to make that mistake again, and I apologize if I get anybody’s hopes up.

At any rate, we have four main topics for today:

1: Despite the myth, schools other than the non-traditional powers do sign top 50 prospects.
2: The Hokies are getting their butts handed to them for the top in-state recruits.
3: Despite the need at DE, Tech’s 2015 DE class is likely to be disappointing.
4: Is this problem fixable under Frank Beamer?
