Virginia Tech is a proud program. Prior to this season, we had 26 straight years of winning seasons. But all that came to a close on Dec 31st 2018. 

The team has no direction, players are looking to get as far away from Blacksburg as possible. More players have transferred or declared early for the NFL draft in the last 3 years, than in a decade under Frank Beamer. Fuente has run off contributors like record breaking QB Jerod Evans (who by the way he recruited), highly touted recruit Dwayne Lawson, 1,000 yard rusher Trayvon McMillan, record setting WR Isiah Ford and that's just on the offensive side of the ball. They were all a part of a 10 win team that was just in the ACC title game and a score away from beating eventual national champion Clemson. Logic says that if they all come back next year, not only would they have been back in the ACC title game, but there's a good chance Tech makes Playoffs. But Fuente and Cornelsen chased them away with Evans so frustrated that he declared early for the NFL just to get away from them. 

And let's not mention what he's done to the defense, he dismisses star Defensive End Trayvon Hill for an infraction that a Nick Saban or Dabo Swinney would have worked thru, Hill was our best defensive end. They run off highly touted recruit Cam Goode after 1 day of practice. Things are so bad that Tim Settle declares early, just to go in the 5th round. Had he stayed this season to help anchor the d-line he'd have been a 2nd round pick this upcoming draft. And then there were the Edmunds boys. Yes both went in the first round, but how is Clemson able to talk it's entire d-line, all of which were all ACC and going to be first or second round picks, into coming back for their senior years? THey couldn't keep Adonis Alexander eligible 

What is it about the culture in at Oregon that see Justin Herbert, a lock as a top 5 pick come back or Matt Barkley at USC stay, yet the players at Virginia Tech want to get out of town as quickly as possible?

And let's not talk abour recruiting. Thank goodness for Zhon Burden and Charley Wiles because without them things would be far worse. It is Virginia Tech right, so why are we never in the running for the top kids in Virginia anymore? Auburn was able to come into the 757 and flip a Hokie commit, Auburn a school with NO history of recruiting in the state. in the last 3 years, they've signed a total of 4 kids from the 757 area, an area we used to own. Not to mention none of the top 5 recruits in the state have signed with the Hokies during Fuente's tenure. 

The time is now for him to go, before the program falls even further. The reigns should be turned over to Bud Foster immediately, or if not, a coach with ACC experience or experience recuriting in Virginia. All I know is that Fuente is not the coach we need nor want.
