Duke laying the wood on VT at VT, 38-10.
WTF happened to VT?
If karma existed beamer would have won a natty and Bowden would have been denied a second. Just a random thought loosely related to the thread. Always pulled for VaTech a little. Would like to see them right the ship someday
Surprised how Fuente has flamed out there.
Hmmmm, even though Bowden had some reprebates on his 1999 title team, remember that VT has a pure scumbag in Micheal Vick on their's.
Fuente is done after this. I think he's had a pretty long leash but he has performed worse every year. To me getting thrashed by Duke at home is the last straw - not that Duke is a bad team but they're a basketball/academic school and are clearly outclassing VT in their favorite sport.
Vick has actually done a lot to atone for his crimes/sins, including serving jailtime and being an advocate for animals. Doesn't excuse what he did but everyone deserves a second chance. Also Danny Wuerffel had no problem playing on the same pro flag football team this year so he seems ok with him.
Pro flag football? I've never heard of it.
Fuente was a guy I thought had a good chance to be an excellent coach. He took Memphis from a losing record to 19-6 record over his last 2 years. Total bust at Va Tech and guessing he is gone at the end of this year.
Danny is a lot more forgiving than I am too.
Vick tortured and killed animals for entertainment because he liked doing it. No, sorry, but people who do that do it because they enjoy it.
Not only does VT suck but they managed to send an awful QB in Josh Jackson to another DC area school (Maryland) and make them suck as well. So congrats on that accomplishment Virginia Tech.
Worst home loss for VT since 1974... against Duke! What Cutcliffe has done at Duke is a miracle, but to lose to them b that margin at home is mind boggling.
Fuente looks like he has already lost this team, there's very little fight and cohesion in anything they do. Like Seabud and others I thought for sure he'd be a success there once he convinced Bud Foster to stay on. But the team looks awful, they're looking at a 4-8 type season down there, battling GT for last place in the ACC.
At least VT has skynet.
Did you fully vet the scum on FSU's team that year? They were full of scum too.
As a dog lover there’s no way I can get past what that guy did. The only way he could properly “atone” for it would be to cover himself in raw hamburger and jump into the middle of a pen full of hungry pit bulls.
Cutcliffe: "If Steve Spurrier could do it here, I can too. My ultimate goal? To be a great Duke ambassador."
Surprised by the Vick hate still harbored by most people. He actually went to prison, which is more punishment than any of these guys who abused women or committed crimes against humanity. Most of them are getting 4-6 game suspensions and then its brushed under the rug. Dont get me wrong, what he did was wrong, and I love dogs and animals just as much as the next guy, but there is a real societal problem when people put domestic pets above other humans. I'm not sure when it started, but I actually know people that would choose to save their dog over a human life if that person is a stranger. I know I will get killed over it, but the guy did the time, and actually seems to have changed. Get over it.
Use to love pulling for them in those Miami, big east matchups.
Can you imagine if Cutcliffe hadn't turned down Tennessee?
You must be new to this board to think Vick wouldn't be hated on here.
UT fans were the losers when Cutcliffe left for Duke. IMO, he has done a remarkable job in putting a well coached team on the field week in week out with recruiting classes ranked far down the list - and this at a round ball school.
