  1. I give up. I've inserted a meme into this a half-dozen times and it keeps screwing up. We have had massive network issues all week at work. I would be more productive anywhere else at this point!
  2. I won't swear these are accurate. I got them from local high school marching band schedules. They were likely put together by Band Boosters while preparing for summer Band Camps.

  3. I know several guys locally who left the AOA for the Roanoke Association. They work the Three Rivers, Blue Ridge and River Ridge most often. My brief experience with the AOA left me with the distinct impression, it’s disorganized chaos. My cousin attempted to leave the Roanoke Association a couple years ago to help out the AOA since he lives in Galax. His first 4 games were at Lebanon, Castlewood, Grundy and Lee. Hell of a haul from Galax for a guy with a full time job! He went back to the Roanoke Association after 4 games.
  4. Probably doesn't matter from a variety of standpoints.
  5. We're both wrong! Bill Guthridge was named head coach on October 9th, 1997. He was born July 27, 1937. He had turned 60 a little more than 2 months before becoming head coach. I mistakenly thought he turned 60 after becoming head coach. Gregg Marshall was born February 27, 1963, making him a little over 56 years of age. Only 4 years older than Guthridge at the time of his hire at UNC. My point remains, with so many other attractive candidates, why hire someone nearing retirement age?
  6. Actually, he was 3 years older than Gregg Marshall is right now.
  7. That's what everyone said about Bill Guthridge when Dean Smith retired!
  8. It won't be Gregg Marshall. His name comes up virtually every time a quality job comes open. It's easy to forget or overlook the fact that Marshall makes over a million dollars more at Wichita State than Buzz did at VT and doesn't have to contend with football. And by all outward appearances, VT isn't going to offer a coach what Marshall makes at Wichita State. Plus, I don't see Babcock going after a 56 year old head coach. As an AD, you only get so many shots at getting these things right. Babcock has a great track record in replacing coaches (golf excluded) but the percentages suggest he has to get one wrong at some point. Replacing the most successful basketball coach in school history only to have to replace him in a few years due to retirement isn't a very attractive proposition for Babcock, I would imagine. Ryan Odum has an ACC pedigree and his son is a sophomore at Oak Hill Academy. That would be my best guess. Word out of Texas is Shaka Smart isn't well liked by the ridiculous Longhorn "boosters." He would be another interesting choice. Then again, Babcock hasn't gone "chalk" on many of these coaching hires in his tenure at VT.

  10. I have known this family since childhood. The younger brother has been baseball and basketball coach a decade longer than the older brother has been principal. How does that equate to nepotism?
  11. I don't know him personally but have heard some really good things. Ironically, several current members of the Grayson wrestling team transferred from Galax when Coman was hired. Two of them finished 4th in the state tournament.
  12. Grayson will be very competitive on a state level coming down to Class 1 next year. They only had 3 seniors on this team. None of which competed in the regional or state tournament if I recall correctly.
  13. So, if Machado and Harper are worth $300 million plus, does that mean whoever signs Trout to his next deal will just sign the franchise over to him? He would have to be worth a billion, right?
