His radio show
I'm sure the syndication fees that ESPN earns from distributing his radio show makes up for his salary.

His show represents what ESPN should be doing since they were already making a buck off of him. Instead, they took overpriced "talent" and created shows to air that they couldn't syndicate airing at a time when most people are at work.

Um, my opinions about ACC leadership are in the majority.
THat is true EVERYWHERE except Tobacco Road and this particular board. Ask 20 random Virginia Tech fans at a football game sometime. Ask at Clemson or FSU.

posted in the thread Just saw where Zach Epperly by EagleHokie on the Virginia Tech Wrestling Board 52 minutes ago
This is great for Zach, great for VAHS wrestling, and ultimately VT.
This is what great wrestling programs do, they produce NCAA All Americans who go on to coach future NCAA All Americans at the high school and later college levels. And this cycle of coaching builds the regional and state wrestling up to higher levels which will eventually benefit VT and mid-Atlantic wrestling.

Zach, so many great memories, but here is my favorite (link).
At 0:51 of the linked video of highlights vs. #4 Ohio State at #11 VT in November 2014. This was the moment of the match and your win by fall enabled the Hokies to achieve an upset team victory which etched VT into the NCAA wrestling top 10 where we have stayed since then. I salute you on a fantastic career, I recognize the effort, dedication, and character required to reach this level of wrestling, and thank you for the contribution you made to the VT Program.

Remember you are a Hokie and our brother. Beyond your immediate family and your wrestling family you have a huge Hokie family for life. Use this amazing network if and when you need it. And once again, thank you and good luck!

I'd guarantee it came up in interviews. Those guys ask everything.
Especially if it makes the player uncomfortable. I think he was more a victim of play calling than ability that day. Fedora is an idiot, and that's why they got boat raced.

Speaking of Michigan, do you think we use Caleb Farley like Jabril Peppers
I think how he excels on both offense and defense it wouldn't be a bad idea considering how well he picks up the playbook on both sides. I know it's way to early to make those statements but from all the rave that I have been hearing from the Spring, it is fun thinking of the possibilities.

Don't know, but if so, whats the answer? Seriously doubt any
talking heads or "experts" have asked the question. My being a Hokie fan is NOT a factor in demanding an answer. He wilted in those conditions that day and his answer would be a factor in giving him millions of $$$ if I was an owner or GM.

Nicely played win
Hitting was still woeful especially for a club that is supposed to produce lots of runs. Defense was very solid tonight and well pitched game. Thank goodness we avoided the Radford sweep. Let's hope there is life in this team for Syracuse. Go Hokies!

Isn't that a simulcast?
They just have a camera in his radio show simulcasting it on the SEC Network.

Things like this should be profitable for ESPN to do, but they seem to prefer having the "debate" style shows on during the day that are expensive to produce and that they can't sell to radio stations to carry.

NBC is doing it with Dan Patrick on NBCSN and Comcast in DC has just recently added "The Sports Junkies" in the morning as a simulcast of a local radio station.

McCormack, who has the potential to end up as a one and done. If he continues to transform his body and improve his game over the next two years, like he has for the past two years... well, he will have NBA scouts drooling.

Think Boogie Cousins without the baggage.

posted in the thread New Coach Please Whit by VT Rockie on the Virginia Tech Baseball Board 1 day ago
So who should Whit go after? I suggest Chad Holbrook at SC, he had to
Follow Ray Tanner (now AD) who won 2 national championships. They're in danger of missing NCAA tournament this year and the natives are restless. Holbrook is former UNC coach who is a good recruiter. He may want to get out of the fire of bring expected to host super regional every year and get to Omaha most years. He could return us to the tournament. He has something like a 67% winning record. We would have never expected Whit to get a coach with Buzz's pedigree, so why can't he pull one for baseball and lure the unexpected that might be looking for a change?
