VT has been "milking" the football fans for quite a few years...


It (product on the field, revenue intake, etc.) took a nose dive during our 6-6 (plus bowl win) years, especially with the downturn in the economy, but seems to be coming back. Whit has made some truly outstanding hires in almost every sport, and that costs money.
