Corey Moore to Mike Burnop after Saturday's spring game. Good to see one of the best defensive players in Hokie history return to Blacksburg.

Bill Burton, a White House spokesman, said Obama "of course condemns the crimes that Michael Vick was convicted of, but, as he's said previously, he does think that individuals who have paid for their crimes should have an opportunity to contribute to society again."

The Washington Post has a story about President Obama's call to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie in which he praised Lurie for giving Michael Vick a second chance.

"Johnson Wagner had hoped to be in Bank of America Stadium back home in Charlotte on Saturday when Virginia Tech plays Florida State for the Atlantic Coast Conference title. Instead, Wagner will be in a Florida hotel room that night watching the game on TV. That's because the former Hokies standout is playing in the PGA TOUR National Qualifying Tournament for the fifth time this week."

Best of luck to Wagner, who was No. 126 on the money list this past season. The Top 125 are fully exempt for the Tour. Check SBN's Waggle Room for more on Q School.

"According to the Associated Press, and citing a source familiar with the decision, the Sun Belt conference school fired Bustle following the conclusion of the Ragin’ Cajuns’ regular season Saturday. Athletic director David Walker plans to announce the dismissal on Monday."

Former Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Rickey Bustle appears to be out at Louisiana-Lafayette.

"Um, yeah, actually played a practice round with Johnson Wagner and Drew Weaver today, Virginia Tech alums. It's great for us. We get so much fan support. Everywhere we looked today we saw (Hokie) hats and shirts. It's a lot fun getting cheered all the time. You know, Virginia Tech has always been a pretty tight-knit community. Travel well. It's gonna make for an exciting week for us."

Brandon de Jonge and his fellow Hokies on the PGA Tour get plenty of support. He's playing at the Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., this weekend. You can see coverage of all four rounds on Golf Network July 29-Aug. 1 from 3-6 p.m. EDT. Thursday Tee Times (EDT): de Jonge: 7:10 a.m. (No. 10) Wagner: 8:10 a.m. (No. 1) Weaver: 9:00 a.m. (No. 1)

"If you love pure point guards, you'll love Zabian Dowdell. To borrow a common cliche, his impact goes further than the stat sheet suggests. Dowdell isn't flashy. He won't make no-look passes or rain three-point shots. He simply manages the game, limits turnovers and finds players in their spots. Basically, everything a point guard should do."

SB Nation has a feature on Zabian Dowdell as a part of its look at Summer League Players on the Cusp.

"I'm remaining quiet right now because there are a lot of Americans in the locker room," (Patrick) Nyarko said. "I'm not talking that much. Come Saturday ... I don't know if we're going to watch it either because we're traveling. But I'll be cheering for Ghana."

"The excellent play of Patrick Nyarko helped Chicago punish a profligate Philadelphia Union. The winger created Chicago's first goal and was a live wire in attack as he helped his team pick up their third win of the season, in a game where Chicago found themselves on the back foot for much of the night."

Goal USA on former Hokie great Patrick Nyarko, who's excellent season continued against Philadelphia.

"It was great," Nyarko said with a huge grin. "I was laughing it up with my teammates. It's probably the highlight of my career right now. I told him that he's probably going to [beat] me later, but I don't care. It was really fun. I'm glad I pulled it off."

"As a father of a 1-year old boy, I have recently experienced the pregnancy – birth process and our season has paralleled the 1st trimester of a pregnancy. When my wife told me she was expecting a baby, mixed emotions filled my mind and heart. Excitement at the prospect of being a dad yet concern for all the trouble this world can bring. As I think back to the season opener on Canada Day, there was excitement for what the season could bring with new coaches and players, yet concern for how we would play together and navigate the ups and downs that an 18-game season will assuredly bring."
