    Things seem off because a lot is being exaggerated here.

    This is exactly why I'd love to be able to discuss this freely. But I understand the reason why we aren't/can't.

    If this is a problem that would hurt the program, Howard and/or the University, why do the Admins allow these dead end threads to continue?

    Frank hacked the election?

    I actually thought he was decent in the first half where my rage subsided a small percentage temporarily, but the second half was the same old, ending with throwing up that crazy 3 that hit the backboard before he got pulled.

    Interesting calculus. But if Frank did sleep with the chancellors wife, knock up Shumps girlfriend, AND punch Otto in a bar on Marshall all in one Saturday afternoon, he would be gone from the team already. Remember the team is still serving sanctions, and I would expect zero tolerance for any more blemishes that give the NCAA reason to sniff around, and perhaps never restore the wins.

    Would you get banned for discussing?

    I hope it's not to serious.

    What could he have done so bad? JB has twice said in pressers now that he needs to get Frank better and more minutes.

    Possibly, but the thread would be locked and deleted pretty quickly I'm guessing.

    I think we can surmise, that what he did was "not good at all" ??

    Deleted due to being hearsay, or for being inappropriate?

    Well, unfortunately, it comes down to really only one thing. I think we all kinda know it deep down and haven't wanted to admit to ourselves that it could be this, but there's really no denying it now.




    It's cannibalism.

    Is this why we haven't seen Mookie Jones around?

    Well BJ was way too skinny to get a meal out of, so I'd guess it was Buss.

    I'm guessing that because this is a public forum that it is something that you wouldn't want other coaches, potential players or potential players parents to know.

    It's nothing the NCAA would bother with but it is something that would be best if kept quiet.

    Are JB's "hands tied" on this issue?

    Yup. He gave our 2-page offensive playbook to everyone who would take it.

    There is no chance in hell that our offensive playbook is two pages. You know VT, this is how rumors are started.

    But he doesn't appear to be taking any corrective measures himself, other than maybe a 1 game benching, and a well deserved role reduction. None of that appears to be forced on him, those are coaches discretion based on his stunning regression, not imposed from outside. And wouldn't there be rumblings of student judicial reviews, and violations of university policy receiving all sorts of attention, if what is being rumored were remotely true?

    Frank will most likely be starting PG next year, or he wouldn't be part of the team today. The rest is grist for the drama mill.
