Remember the Virginia Tech tackle drill video involving a mysterious #22?
seen here: https://twitter.com/rell_island6/status/920333451898826753

this was a huge topic on this forum years back. This was after Shai McKenzie got hurt but before his legal trouble. I remember thinking it must be him because he wore #22 but I don't recall if anybody here ever figured it out.

Terrell Edmunds shared it today- I guess that means it was him?

Post-WV and Current 16-17 Season Comparison.
Two observations:

1. After reading TTL / Black Diamond Trophy comments, I realized that I didn't remember seeing a lot of commentary after the game of violence off the field (and not related to the parking fiasco- sorry to bring THAT up again!).

VT has some great B10 games coming up, but way too many ODU/UR/ECU games at the same time (does it really make sense to play ODU every year until 2054?). Does it make sense to revisit a WV rivalry- even if it is only every 4-5 years? Are batteries, feces and flaming couches still a thing VT needs to worry about for the foreseeable future? How has WV treated Big 12 visiting fan bases lately?

2. Looking at the 3x 16 reg season losses, in a worst case scenario where VT loses to both UM and GT, it is likely that VT won't get to the ACCCG. If that were to happen, VT would still have had a better 17 season comparably, given that their 3 reg season losses weren't brain farts (hopefully!) The losses were against already successful teams. In a definite "rebuilding" year for VT.

While 9-3 obviously isn't as good as 11-1, I'd still be really happy with 9-3 reg season, with the possibility of a bowl win as well. That's a pretty significant achievement for a dynasty in its second year. Let's hope VT can win the games it definitely SHOULD win, going forward. We can only go up from here.

Go VT! Beat the Cheat!

The fact that he declared, dismissing overwhelming advice by those with his
best interests at heart, is, intrinsically, and ironically, maybe something that hurt him even more.

The NFL teams probably thought, "wow, this guy doesn't even heed common sense advice; we're not going to overlook that in our assessment in the draft".

Yes. NCAA pres Mark Emmert's inner monologue follows:
"I am a nullity. I am an empty set. I have no purpose. No one respects me. My wife cheats on me and is right to do so. All my plans have come to naught. My life will end with no one being aware of my having been on Earth. It is if I never existed."

I don't think VT fans need to continue to pile on Jerod
I'd be surprised if he didn't feel like he made a mistake with his decision. The fact that some Hokie fans continue to wish for his failure drives a wedge between the program and a very good player for us. It's time for our fans to move on and wish him the best.

Yes for the deviant behavior - strictly law enforcement
however, a cover up to protect the athletic department from bad PR, IMHO should be within their purview.

They could try and include a
"morals clause" or similar in the membership requirements of each institution. Admitting "bad" but not against any of the NCAA athletic rules type behavior, a-la UNC, shouldn't be a possible defense.

This could be "tried" in front of a jury of peers (representatives of member institutions) and would give NCAA some leeway to enforce some type of sanctions. Keep it subjective - did the school do things that did not represent the NCAA well? If a majority of peers think so, then NCAA has a hammer. That hammer could be as minor as a reprimand to not do it again (buy a recruit dinner) with threat of harsher sanctions - to the athletic death penalty (create a system that while athletic department-wise is "legal", endorses systemic cheating)

Might be some tit for tat type cases for a while, but would eventually be self regulating i.e. "We can't do that, a rival might turn us in" or "other respectable institutions are doing this, so can we"

Admittedly very hard logistics.

The PSU fiasco gave the NCAA a chance to...
look virtuous. The PSU mess involved sex and sex gathers attention (good or bad). Pedophilia is as disgusting a crime that any human being can commit and investigating it would make them look like they were the purveyors of high moral standards, also known as the NCAA. Too bad the UNC academic scandal didn't involve a few prostitutes.

Probably not. As much as we hate the UNC defense, now that the
NCAA has bought that as a valid defense, you can clearly see how those other cases are different.

USC didn't buy houses for the families of other students, they did it for Reggie Bush.

Syracuse gave a few specific athletes falsified grades or credit....not the general student population.

I don't remember UConn's specifics, but probably the same point.

I'm pretty optimistic as well. As you say, we'll have...
...a bunch of talented folks available to play this year. Last year, only 6-8 kids really got significant playing time, game to game. That must have been wearing on the starters. Also, we should have 3-5 legitimate scorers on the court at all times this year, which should really help. I'm particularly interested to see Sheppard, Emery, Camp, Jean, and Berry play at the 2,3, and 4 positions. Already know we'll have strong starters at the 1 and 5.

The NCAA saw an easy target and acted to show it had power
And then, when it rolled back sanctions it probably never should have imposed in the first place, the NCAA further exposed its own weakness.

Because he is a small forward for sure. He is not a post player. His three point shooting and mid range game are his strongest attributes. He is fairly tall, but not a post player at all.
