Both students and alumni were outraged Saturday when Virginia Tech unveiled a statue of Frank’s Red Hot instead of the planned statue of Frank Beamer.
Many were upset that Frank’s was the brand of hot sauce chosen to be honored. “Texas Pete is clearly superior, in both flavor and heat factor,” said sophomore and hot sauce expert Matt Rodgers.
President Tim Sands issued a apology over the fiasco.
“I am as disappointed as the rest of the Hokie Community. I don’t know how we messed this up so badly. From the bottom of my heart, I am sorry.”
The statement comes as a surprise, as Sands has never apologized for anything during his Presidency.
