Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has coached enough games to experience varying degrees of pain on a football field, but nothing may compare to the ghastly horrors his team endured Tuesday night in a 23-20 overtime loss to Michigan. If he could magically negate any one or two of at least 10 scenarios that didn't go his team's way, the No. 17 Hokies (11-3) might be enjoying their first 12-win season and talking about how it justified being the Atlantic Coast Conference's first at-large bid in the Bowl Championship Series.

Police say she punched her grandmother, Marion Odemena, in the face repeatedly, then directed the attacks to her grandfather, Ernest Morris, after he tried to pull them apart.

BLACKSBURG, Va. - When Frank Beamer was a young boy in Fancy Gap, Va., his mother nursed him back to health after he was badly burned in a fire in the family garage. The Virginia Tech coach's mother, Herma, died early yesterday in her sleep at age 86. Beamer's Virginia Tech football team provided the healing for the coach last night. Beamer took the field and led the Hokies to a 55-6 victory over Maryland, honoring a request his ailing mother made before Tech's Nov. 6 game at North Carolina.

Blacksburg, Va. -- Michael Vick's former Virginia Tech coach says he's standing by the embattled quarterback, and the school has no plans - at least not now - to remove a portrait of Vick from the athletic complex or a Vick flag that flies over the stadium. As two more defendants finalized plea agreements yesterday in a dogfighting case tied to Vick, a school official said it would be premature to consider dismantling a virtual shrine to the Atlanta Falcons quarterback. In 1999, Vick led the Hokies to an 11-0 regular-season record and a berth in the national championship game won by Florida State.

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said he has no problem hitting his players where it hurts - in the pocket. The Hokies (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are fined $100 from their bowl spending money when they commit flagrant fouls in a game or if they're not dressed properly, Beamer said. Fouls have been a problem this season for Virginia Tech, the league's most-penalized team. The Hokies are giving up 62 penalty yards per game but still remain undefeated heading into tomorrow's 3:30 p.m. televised game (chs.

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said yesterday that he had intended to redshirt freshman quarterback Tyrod Taylor, but after the Hokies' 48-7 road loss to Louisiana State on Saturday, he instead named Taylor his starter. "As we went along, his performance on the field kept getting our attention, but even in the opening ballgame against East Carolina we had already determined we weren't going to play him, even if we got in a situation where we could," Beamer said. "As we continued on, his performance and where we were as a football team we decided this was what was best for the football program."

To many, the face of the school is easy to recognize. You could dress it up however you'd like - a ballcap, a headset, a smile or a scowl - and Frank Beamer is still going to be the one man much of the country associates with Virginia Tech. To many of us, Beamer isn't simply from Blacksburg, Va. - he is Blacksburg, Va. That's why his impassioned response to the horrors earlier this week should give hope to anyone who's been glued slack-jawed to an all-news channel. "If I know Virginia Tech people, we'll become tighter, grow closer together, care more for each other, show more respect for each other," the Hokies' football coach said yesterday.

Every Fourth of July, on the shores of Lake Oconee, east of Atlanta, three men gather their families for a summer ritual of utmost importance. Ralph Friedgen, George O'Leary and Frank Beamer play some golf, take their kids out on a boat and take turns singing on the karaoke machine. Friedgen's wife, Gloria, roasts a pig and prepares a meal big enough to feed a small army. The three friends, all successful college football coaches, laugh, have a few drinks, relax and tell stories. They reminisce about the days when they barely had two nickels to rub together, when they shared an apartment as lowly graduate assistants, and they trade opinions on sports, politics, religion and parenthood.

College Park -- Apparently, last year's 55-6 loss to Virginia Tech on national television didn't ruin Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen's friendship with Hokies coach Frank Beamer -- he was still invited to Friedgen's Fourth of July party at the lake. The two have summer homes close to each other at Lake Oconee in Georgia. "I don't blame that on Frank; I blame that on us," Friedgen said, probably referring to his team's four first-half turnovers. Tomorrow's 7:45 p.m. game at Byrd Stadium will be only the second time Friedgen and Beamer have faced each other as head coaches.
