VT Coaches Decide on QB Situation

I have never been so happy to be wrong. Coach Beamer made a STRONG decision in redshirting Tyrod Taylor and naming Glennon the starter for the 2008-09 season. As noted previously, the QB carousel is a disaster over the course of a season. This is a better decision for the long term success of the Virginia Tech program and for Taylor personally. If the coaches weren't going to start him, then redshirting him is the right move.

TSF is also happy for Glennon. Hell if the coaches can prove us wrong and show they have the guts to make a good decision and redshirt Taylor, maybe Glennon will prove us wrong about his ability this season....................................well ok, maybe not, but still, this is a good move for the team, for Taylor and for Glennon. Now we've heard rumblings that when the players heard the news on Sunday, some were stunned and a few were disappointed, but publicly the team will rally behind Glennon, especially if he doesn't lose games for the team (a la 2007 Chik-Fil-A Bowl). If the only downside is that we, as fans, have to grit our teeth more this season then so be it. Watching Hokie football games takes years off my life anyway.

Last but not least, I had to watch Glennon make the following quote about 15 times because I couldn't believe he said it with a straight face. He was asked if the young WR corps would be ready come game day on Saturday. Here is what he said -

"A lot of guys are great practice players, then when they get on the main stage, not so good. But to be honest, there’s just as many that in practice aren’t anything special, then all the sudden when the lights are on, the game’s on the line, they rise to the occasion. So it’ll be kind of wait and see, but I just have to have faith they’re going to get the job done.”

I can barely keep my head above water. I'm drowning in the irony of Glennon making that statement about someone else.
