Academic fraud 2nd only in severity to Baylor-like issues, imo. NCAA PNP
status hinges on its academic purpose. Academic fraud is worse than paying players.

posted in the thread Liberty joins FBS as independent** by FlyFishingHokie on the Conference Realignment Board 7 minutes ago
Since the primary purpose of college athletics is not to be
professional league, then you could consider all sports sponsored by a school to be "charity." The NCAA and the various members decided the minimum number of sports that a school must sponsor in order to be a member of that division level.

DI - 6 men's sports and 8 women's sports (or 7 for both sports) with 2 sports for each gender
DII - 4 men's sports and 6 women's sports (or 5 for both sports) with 2 sports for each gender
DIII - 5 men's sports and 5 women's sports with 2 sports for each gender

Regardless of what people think about Title IX, Title IX may not really be the elephant in the room. Football may be the elephant in the room because it offers the most scholarships of any of the NCAA sanctioned sports.

DI-FBS = 85
DI-FCS = 63
DII = 36

Since co-ed schools want both male and female students, then co-ed schools could easily be perceived as being hypocritical for "discriminating" against 1 group of athletes. If co-ed schools had been more proactive to providing equal opportunities to both programs, then there would have been no need for Congress to pass Title IX. A strong case could be made that the idea of making money from collegiate athletics didn't really surface until recently (maybe the 1980s at the earliest). It also raises the debate where schools, who are mostly non-profit, should even be in the business to make money from collegiate athletics vs. collegiate athletics returning to a more club status.

If our success continues, feel VT could easily become a "top 20" recruiter
Keep the solid defense, and add a "more flashy" offense (as compared to Frank's Os), and I think you'll start attracting more of the top players in Virginia and the region.

I think we were in the top-20 this year, and if we continue to play for ACC championships, I think we could become a solid "top-20" recruiter. (Solid, meaning we're "top-20" every year.)

Where would Clemson have been ranked 10 years ago?
I think #3 in the 247 rankings is a little high given that the answer to that question is probably around 15-20.

This makes me wonder what VT's ceiling in this list is. I feel like a sustained run of success under Fuente like our run from the late-90's through the mid-00s would push us up to the 15-10 range. But a national championship is required to break into the top-10. Of course, the fan and admin support appears to be a huge part of this. Hopefully a successful "Drive for 25" will help in that regard.

posted in the thread Conference Channel content will/are mainly be other sports besides football by Stech on the Conference Realignment Board 42 minutes ago
It seems that majority of women's gymnastics (especially dual meets)
broadcasted by ESPN involve SEC schools (especially Alabama and Georgia). Utah seems to be the only non-SEC school that ESPN will broadcast on a somewhat regular basis. This past weekend was the first time I noticed a dual meet involving Utah (vs. UCLA) on ESPN. I am not even sure if the broadcasts are live or taped delay. At least any broadcasts on ESPN gave me the impression that the meet occurred sometime during the week and then it wasn't broadcasted until sometime on the weekend. When CBS used to broadcast the men's and women's national championship I always assumed it was live. However, that may have been taped delay too. If the ACC is debating whether to sponsor gymnastics and ESPN has a practice of broadcasting the few "regular season" meets on tape delay, then I wonder how much exposure the ACC would really gain from the sport compared to sponsoring another sport (i.e. ice hockey, women's bowling, etc).

Here's a quote...
"First off, it's my first time here in Blacksburg. My friend, Frank Beamer, he's got a heckuva place here. That was a top-10er, maybe a top 5-er as far as the emotion, the crowd. The buses coming in today, I had high expectations cause I talked to some folks that had played here and it certainly didn't disappoint. They played really hard, both teams. A little disappointed in our point of attack a little bit on the offensive and defensive line but overall we'll take that win against a very good team in a tough environment.

She didn't have a rough time. She made a comment about the seats given
to her by VT and the boards went ballistic. Probably should have kept it to herself, but I think it was taken more harshly than it really should have been.

Basically the first words out of Meyer's mouth in the on field post game interview were talking about what Beamer had built and how great it was. He was extremely complimentary.

Make sure their "clean" image is changed to reflect their actual actions
I consider them far dirtier than Miami because in Miami's case, it was people outside the university that were corrupting their players. In UNC's case, they actually had coaches distributing cash payouts to players on the football team. If the athletic department allowed that to happen, would think their BB program hasn't been exactly "clean" either.

From VTimHokie85: The Story of the 2016 Hokies, Part 1 (link)
TechSideline.com video guru “VTimHokie85” has completed the first part of his epic documentary of the 2016 Hokie football season, “The Story of the 2016 Hokies.”

Tim has been doing great Hokie video work since 2013, but this is his most ambitious project ever, a wide-ranging, multi-part documentary capturing the 2016 Hokie football season in detail.

Part 1 begins with a stirring tribute to Frank Beamer, then takes us through the home opener against Liberty, the once-in-a-lifetime Battle at Bristol against Tennessee, and the epic beatdowns of Boston College and East Carolina on the Lane Stadium turf.

This documentary is not something that you consume in two or three minutes. Part 1 alone is 38 minutes long. So pull this up on the TV at home, using your Roku or Chromecast or whatever it is you use to get YouTube up onto the big screen, and enjoy! Or … just watch it on your phone or iPad, if that’s how you roll.

Without further ado … The Story of the 2016 Hokies, Part 1.
