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.

Jason From Arlington Has Ruined Everything

1

Jason from Arlington got his 15 seconds of fame last year when he called in to Labatt Hokie Hotline and criticized Bryan Stinespring. Thanks to him, Frank Beamer will no longer be taking callers during his weekly radio show. Fans will still be able to ask questions via E-mail, text message and in person at Bull and Bones Brewhaus and Grill, but no more callers. Thanks, Jason. Honestly, looking at the quotes from Bill Roth in the story, it looks like the show will be much better this year. But it also won't be nearly as controversial.

Luckett was dismissed by head coach Frank Beamer after being charged with his second DUI prior to last season. While Luckett is returning, receiver Ike Whitaker will not be allowed to return to the team.
