Frank Beamer Has Steadying Influence On Virginia Tech

+

This day in the life sort of feature on Frank Beamer has been circulating around the internet today to much acclaim. It outlines his struggles early on with the program, his triumphs and his resilience in life and how he has managed to avoid the national fanfare that Paterno and Bowden received despite his career record and running a clean program. There's also a pretty cool part about how he belies his competitive nature. It's a really great read if you've got the chance.

NCAA 13 Teambuilder - Hokies

2

Hey everyone, If you're as excited as me for NCAA 13 and don't want to name the players on the Hokies yourself (or don't feel like waiting for named rosters yourself) you can download the teambuilder team I created. There were a few freshmen who I didn't know who to choose between, Nick Dew is still on the team and EA Teambuilder has a filter that doesn't allow Gayle, Wang, or Van DYke, so those names had to be spelled wrong intentionally. Open to any other suggestions-feel free to leave comments!

According to ESPN's David Telep, Dorian Finney-Smith To Transfer To Florida

1

Finney-Smith averaged 6.3 ppg. (5th for the Hokies) and led the team in rebounding at 7 rpg. as a true freshman. Finney-Smith selected the Hokies over Florida and Old Dominion, making him the highest ranked recruit the Hokies have ever landed (in the recruiting site era) at #31 overall. Finney-Smith decided to transfer at the end of the season and announced his intentions after the firing of Seth Greenberg. Many thought he would transfer to ODU considering his brother was a starter there, the coach that recruited him to Virginia Tech (John Richardson) returned to ODU and because he is from Portsmouth. However, his mother announced early on the Monarchs were not in contention. It is believed Finney-Smith's motivation was to play at a bigger and more prestigious school on the college basketball landscape. There were also prevalent rumors that Dorian did not fit in at Virginia Tech and felt uncomfortable there. More on this developing story as it evolves here on Gobbler Country.

ESPN: James Johnson Facing Uphill Battle

+

Interesting piece from ESPN today on the struggles facing James Johnson at Virginia Tech. Though it also seems to take a narrow view. Obviously VPI will have a hard time stacking up to UNC and Duke. But why not draw comparisons to Miami, Wake or BC of late? Andy Katz evens jumps the gun on Virginia -- seemingly sold on their improvement, with just one year of reference.
