Paging Dr. Goforth

ESPN's Heather Dinich has a post about Virginia Tech trainer Mike Goforth's new injury hotline. Reporters can call a phone number and receive injury info along with quotes about each player listed.

Dinich lists all of Tech's injuries going into the first days of fall practice on her blog.

Pretty cool of the Hokies to do this. Coach Beamer seems pretty laid back when it comes to giving out injury information. This goes one step further than the ACC-mandated injury report.

I don't mind Dinich not giving out the hotline phone number. As long as she and other media sources post the injury info for the general public to see, that is.
