    I agree, he should have been paid a little bit more, so should Torrian Gray, you could probably even add others. But until donors want to pony up big bucks for our assistants, this is likely going to happen to any young up and coming coach who is shooting for the stars and moving up the ladder. With the uncertainty of the future of VT football (post Beamer) 0-2 years from now, that may have played into it as much as the other reasons I stated.

    I haven't paid attention to the scholarship numbers lately, but I am hearing there has to be some significant attrition before next season.....like in the neighborhood of 10 players. How the heck did VT over-sign by that many?

    If that's the case it is probably because of the several recruiting classes a few years back that were complete failures. Meaning so many kids either didn't make it in, or have already left. Now those classes are small, so they're aren't many graduates to open up new spots, but we're still bringing in the same # of kids.

    Would that include the graduating seniors or the seniors plus 10 more have to go?

    I'm sure we will have a few guys prep as well like we always do which will push those schollies out a semester.

    By my count, including the guys who just enrolled this month and not counting last year's seniors, we stand at 83 schollies. BEFORE anyone shows up in the fall.

    That's not enough.

    A lot are self evident but I don't like naming names on issues like this until it is official. Just kind of my thing....

    Might not be an official announcement, just names dropped off the roster on hokiesports.com. But if there is I would expect it to come after spring practice.

    QB Drew Ford is transferring.

    With Lawson coming in this summer, it was apparent that one of the QBs would leave eventually. I'm a bit bummed its Ford though. I liked his skillset and wanted to see what a legit pocket passer under center would look like for us.

    Dakota Johnson is transferring as well

    Nothing official has come out on Johnson yet. Ford will be a good QB for some team out there.

    No huge loss on either one of them. I think Ford saw the writing was on the wall and that his opportunities would be better elsewhere. Good luck to both of them. I will always pull hard for the local guys (Jackson).
