A Military Bowl Wrinkle

We know the current athletic director at VA Tech and former UC athletic director Whit Babcock was responsible for hiring Tommy Tuberville due to Babcock’s Auburn ties. We also know Tech’s Frank Beamer and Tubs are two of the most accomplished longtime coaches in the country, and Tuberville bested Beamer in the Sugar Bowl. But did you also know the Hokie starting quarterback, Michael Brewer, was a former Tuberville recruit and player at Texas Tech? Tubs recruited Brewer out of Lake Travis High School in Texas. Brewer left the Red Raiders after his redshirt freshman season for Virginia Tech after Tubs left for UC.

It is indeed a small world.
