Well from the conversation I had today with one of the coaches, it sure doesn't sound like it. It sounds like they are gonna need to start getting some real transfers too that can play some football, and do some ACTUAL recruiting instead of just giving away football scholarships to those boys up in VA beach area that win the statechamps.

It'll definately be interesting enough to see what they can come up with, but I definately agree that it is not gonna be easy the first couple of years if they do not do some new coaching re-grouping!

Honestly Wasem was terrible. Only 3 good seasons he had was because he had Hippeard and Morgan fall in his lap. Hell if J.Mabe wouldn't have quit football you might have ended up seeing Hippeard transfer out some place else, which Mabe wasn't all that great because his head wasn't in it.. Morgan did transfer out at first because they were playing a local bum over him because he wasn't from SWVA, which is a problem because the coaches want to play the local guys most of the time. Wise will be a hard place to win at unless the admissions office could get a few more players accepted and give more scholarship money to players who need it. The football program has the facilities to be successful.

The college really needs to think about shutting down the football program. They already have dumbed down the admissions at the college to get in too many athletes that have no other interest in college other than playing football for an NAIA school. The academic ranking of the college continues to drop because of how often they let in athletes who aren't prepared for college as it is. Attendance at games has dwindled as they'd rather bring in players from eastern and northern Virginia rather than recruit locally. Athletes from those areas only come here if it's their last resort as they'd much rather play anywhere else in the state that's not as rural as Wise. The athletes there are also giving the college a bad name throughout the state and region for their legal issues. That starts with the coach not placing an emphasis on character when recruiting. It's beyond the point of embarrassing. Even Emory and Henry, with a much smaller student body has figured it out.

Wise is the worst place to play football..their head coach sucks and tries to play his son that couldn't even play at a high school..they just need a whole new coaching staff because they know nothing about football

UVA- Wise needs new coach & people who know how to recruit football players. When your in one league
and can't handle it. Then move to another league.
Stupid. UVA-Wise needs hire a new coach & new recruiters...... Its bad when other team line of 300 lbs. are faster than players we have..

People need boot all the coaches there off.
and find better ones.
