    Ive always thought if VMI landed a great triple option coach, maybe a Paul Johnson tree guy, they'd break through. We played VMI, Wofford, Citadel and Coastal obviously and the athletes werent much different except for the couple of future NFL guys here and there. Especially Wofford. VMI, Presbyterian and Wofford had almost identical athlete types. Big difference is Wofford is just a machine. Their option attack and program's culture and consistency just fuels winning. VMI doesnt have anything preventing them from being that other than just hitting the coach jackpot. But that said...there arent many Mike Ayers or Mike Houston types out there.

    I wont be shocked if some year VMI becomes a program that is in the top 5 of the SoCon.
    Yeah our stadium is a dump. But your mama has season tickets.

    I really would like to see VMI become great again. Jimmy Leech deserves it.

    They offer scholarships. Just not very many of them...

    You've probably seen the story suggesting that MSU is getting more in-state students than MU Columbia (based on a segment of ACT takers). Are there enough pissed off white people to eventually make MSU a larger school than Mizzou? I think MSU's current enrollment is about 6,000 less...

    Maybe improving, not dropping, the football team is the answer.
