Anyone know what the big press conference is with VT athletics? Press conference at 4pm!
The news said it's a big annoucement..
Bud Foster got drunk at a strip club celebrating all the 5 star commits this weekend and let a midget drive him home??
A lot of rumors out there. Greenberg fired. AD is retiring. Bud to Arkansas....
Druckenmiller admits to stuffing tampons.
A herd of sheep is missing... or is it a flock?

I've also heard from checking with my (C)hokie friends that the major rumor is Bud to Arkansas or Weaver stepping down due to "health reasons"

I read on Rivals.. Arky fans say that bud to Arky have never been discussed.
My guess would be Weaver(AD) stepping down.
The only place Bud might be noticed less than Blacksburg is Arkansas.
No way Bud goes to Arkansas - they've got to hire a coach without any inkling of a chance to have bad press surround him. Bud does not fit that criteria.
What on earth does this mean?
They will acknowledge that VT does not have an athletic department but only a football team.
Pud would probably have to fight off several contenders just to get the Arky State gig. That being said I wish we could somehow land a great coordinator that no one else wanted. Pud at VT is a perfect storm.
If the rumor of Beamer being the new AD is true they would be more or less admitting to this.
Frank going to make London a paid assistant since he already works him on the football field. (I kid....I kid.)
Logic says it's Weaver. He's been in bad health for sometime. Guessing this will be the end for Seth. He's done a lot to resurrect a dormant b-ball program but seems to have worn out his welcome with players and coaches recently. Close to undoing what he's already accomplished.
A new AD would want his own guy (and rightfully so). Seth doesn't have the personality to be a "lame duck." My guess is they would part ways fast.
But who knows? Just speculation at this point. We'll soon see.
Jeff Long from Arkansas (a VT grad) is the hot rumor. Jeff Bourne from Madison (also, a VT grad) would be the other strong candidate, IMHO. If this is really an AD change.
BTW, Arkansas holding a presser today, too, fwiw. At least that's the rumor, too.
Yes. We will. Whatever it is hopefully it will help us.
Well Jeff Long would fit right in at VT after his previous head FB coach hire. There was certainly enough prior smoke surrounding Petrino to put any reasonable person on guard.
Change in head bball coach
Seeing some smoke about Goonburg getting the axe.
I'm happy to see him go, but not happy to see VT b-ball mediocrity go with it.
David Teel is reporting change in basketball coach:
David Teel @DavidTeelatDP
Sources: #Hokies press conference is about a change in head men's basketball coach.
Who the hell are they going to get that will be better? Its not a good job to begin with and now its pretty late in terms of the coaching carousel. And lets be real, mediocrity is good for VT, they should be at the bottom of the conference every year.

"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
First rate practice facility, lots of returning, young players, and the best signing class in school history (if it stays together) coming in. There is a lot to like about an opportunity such as this.
