Developments with Virginia and Tony Elliott (Updated)

[4]
Dec 8, 2021, 3:16 PM

It has been confirmed that Tony Elliott is with his family on a plane headed to the University of Virginia currently to visit with officials there about the Virginia Cavaliers football job.

ESPN's Chris Low reported earlier this afternoon that Elliott was the top candidate and ESPN's Adam Rittenberg relayed from Penn State defensive coordinator and UVa Hall of Famer Anthony Poindexter that Poindexter is no longer a candidate for that job.

waiting for the Cheez it bowl We started falling apart against LSU The coordinators were VERY well paid to produce and like all businesses when they fail to produce they get fired Dont confuse compensation with locality What we are this year is at best mediocre and thats on the people getting rich to produce success (and failing to do so)

Wanna bet?

Kind of like USCe and you guys, UVa couldn't beat a team that held their best receiver out of the game and was coached by a guy who was a d-line coach at JMU last year. And UVa had their best coach statistically since HOF'er George Welsh on their sideline. And a quarterback who shred everyone he played against, including VT.

Somehow, I just don't think Brent Pry is worried that much about it.

We'll see. Elliot just didn't hit the right buttons if Whit even talked to him. Babcock said that Pry was his first interview and set the bar high when he spoke to him. According to reports, Babcock spoke to several other candidates and then came back to Pry.

You got to have the jimmies and joes. You Clemson folks know that as well as anyone. Neither of our Virginia based programs have had those lately. Honestly, I believe whichever of the programs can be more successful in the state recruiting will emerge. Virginia has enough talent to build a heck of a core if you can keep a lot of them at home, and neither UVa or VT has been able to do that with any consistency. Whoever does will rise towards the top end of the conference.

Call me a homer, but my money is on VT.

And by the way, I do sincerely offer congratulations to Tony Elliot if indeed he is named head coach at UVa. I think its good to see new blood on the sidelines in the ACC, and I believe both hires at VT and UVa will find some success under their new head whistles.

Sure. I will always bet on a Clemson man beating just about anybody.... even at UVA

As for beating Virginia, go beat them 29 times in a row then we will talk. I mean, they have beaten the HOKIE HS a full 30 times more than Clemson.

No - why I say that stinks for Pry is that TE will siphon off talent, we be a much more competitive if not better coach. Pry is going to be stuck at 7 wins or worse.

I'm a Clemson man who lived in Charlottesville and Albemarle County for more than 30 years and one thing I can tell you is:

It's a great place to live. Beautiful, good climate, lots to do, the Piedmont in sight, Washington, DC, a little over two hours away by car. Or, train. Lots of great places to eat and micro-brews. I miss it.

As for the job, I dunno. The last coach to make it a success was George Welsh. And, he coasted for a while given that they'd literally never been to a bowl game before his time. I mean, when he started, students would sing the Good Old Song if the offense scored a first down. Expectations and expenditures are higher now, so demands are harder. Administration wants victories. Tough work.

Good luck, Tony.
