Episode 38 of the Hokies Press Pass podcast

Making a pit stop around Greenville, South Carolina, to post this podcast. We'll be in lovely Atlanta shortly.

Columnist Aaron McFarling and I get going for a good 40 minutes on the podcast, with talk about whether or not Frank Beamer's retirement will have a galvanizing effect for this team (spoiler: we think it will), the #GameDay4Frank movement, what Bud Foster had to say about wanting the Hokies' head coaching job, the ugly state of instant replay in college football and a some Georgia Tech at the end.

We had some device malfunction on this one, so the sound quality is bad. We apologize for that. We'll get it fixed for the next one.

Follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
