In his 25th season at Virginia Tech, Frank Beamer has notched his 200th win as head Hokie. It wasn't the prettiest victory for the Hokies, as they committed 12 penalties, but a win is a win. Even though there were a few rough years in the beginning, the school allowed Beamer to grow with the program, and he has built a perennial power.
If you ask Beamer, Saturday was just another win, but it's a win that illustrates one of the most successful coaching careers college football has ever seen.
Beamer is trying to coach his team to an eighth straight 10-win season (longest active streak in college football), their 19th straight bowl appearance, their eighth conference championship (3 in the Big East, 4 in the ACC) and their first national title.
Really, the only thing Beamer and his long-tenured staff hasn't done is fill that vacant trophy case in the Merryman Athletic Center that's reserved for a crystal ball. Maybe season 25 is the charm, but for now let's take a look at some of the greatest moments in Beamer's run at Virginia Tech.
