Topics I've Started

VA Tech Basketball

26 February 2015 - 12:28 PM

I know we have a few hokie fans on this board and alumni etc.

Why can't the Hokies ever turn the corner in basketball. I try to watch college basketball as much as possible, but I can't ever get into it because Tech is never relevant. Last time I remember really watching is when Seth Greenburg (how he is a analyst for ESPN is beyond me) use to bitch every year when we would miss the tournament.

Is it Cassell Coliseum? Facilities? Coaching/recruting? I had hopes that when we went to the ACC we could potentially get better recruits (anyone remember Jeff King being on the Bball team and Football team?)

Last night's game against Duke is what made me think of this. It just sums up every year. We get 1-2 games a year were we either upset a big team or lose it when we should have won.

Mike Shula's Offense

04 January 2015 - 10:14 PM

Since December 7th, the Panthers have scored the following points.....

41 against the Saints
19 against the Bucs
17 against the Browns
34 against the Falcon
27 against the Cardinals

That's an average of 27.6 points per game. Do you think we have finally found a identity to this team? Found some consistency? I was a big critic of his early this year and honestly expected a change after our losing streak. If we get to the NFC championship game does he stick next year? Contrast from the losing streak we had....

17 against the Packers
9 against the Seahawks
10 against the Saints
21 against the Eagles
17 against the Falcons
13 against the Vikings

That's an average of 14.5 points per game. What are your thoughts?

Hardy made $48,000

For the playoff game last night. Glad to see that he made as much as I did in a year just for sitting on the sideline last night while the team balled out

Tickets for Browns Game

16 December 2014 - 11:32 AM

I'm looking for anywhere from 2-4 tickets for the browns game. Why should you sell them to me? Well each game we've won at home this year I've been at, so there's that!.....

But seriously, I'd like to take my dad and possibly my sister with the gf and I to the last home game this year. If anyone has some good priced tickets that would be amazing, thanks!

2014 Free Agent Signing

03 December 2014 - 09:48 AM

How well has our free agent signings this year performed? Who's left? Who could potentially stay? Well lets take a look....

S Anderson Russell
-Released Injury Settlement

TE Mike McNeil
-Released (I believe injury settlement but can't find it anywhere)

CB James Dockery
-Released, then resigned, 6 games this year with 11 tackles

S Roman Harper
-Signed a 2 year deal, started all 12 games so far this year. Lowest career total for tackles so far (excluding two years when injuried and missed games). Tied career high for 3 INT.

WR Jerricho Cotchery
-Started 11 games, 34 Rec for 436 yards and 0 TD. Tied career low in TDs at 0, 6th lowest in yards.

WR Tiquan Underwood
-Cut during Preseason

CB Antoine Cason
-Started 11 games, appeared in 12. 4th highest in total tackles, 2nd career high with 2 INT, career high 4 FF. Released yesterday.

QB/WR Joe Webb
-Appeared in 4 games so far, 1 Rec for 16 yards, 2 Returns Avg 26 yards.

WR Jason Avant
-11 appearances 0 "starts". 21 rec (2nd lowest in career excluding rookie year). 201 Yards and 1 TD. Released and now signed with KC Chiefs

DT Colin Cole

TE Ed Dickson
-12 appearances, 8 starts. Both career lows with 6 Rec. 56 yards and 0 TD

DE Alex Hall
-Waived in Preseason

FS Thomas Decoud
-11 starts, career low (so far could improve next 4 games) in Comb. Tackles 48. 1 INT

G Fernando Velasco
-9 appearances with 7 starts.

G Chris Scott
- Waived, then signed to PS. Then signed to active roster. 4 appearances, 0 starts.

RB Chris Ogbonnoya
-Signed, waived, signed, waived. 5 appearances, 14 carriers 54 yards and 1 TD.

I left off the random signings (that lasted just through camp or a week etc) many expect Roman to be cut during the summer as a June 1st Cut. The only ones I can see coming back next year would be Joe Webb, James Dockery, and maybe Colin Cole? Doesn't look good especially when two of those were on our roster the year before.
