Baby @ BCI Joins The BC Interruption Blogging Crew

Congrats to Brian on the birth of his daughter, Mattison Ryan. At least that's what I assume they named her. Crazy Eagles. If she has her mother's genes she'll be kicking my ass in cornhole in 12-14 years. For her sake I hope she at least looks like mom. Congrats!

EDSBS Will be in Blacksburg Saturday

Of all the weeks for me to miss out on a road trip to Blacksburg. The one and only Spencer Hall will be there in town to take in the Commonwealth Cup as well as host a Q&A with Antonio Freeman at TOTS. Head over the EDSBS for the full schedule of debauchery.

Williams Named ACC Offensive Back of the Week

"Williams, who has battled a slightly torn hamstring for much of the season, finally returned to his form of last year as the Hokies wrapped up the Coastal Division with a win at Miami. Williams rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns in the win and had a 7-yard catch. He scored the go-ahead touchdown on an 84-yard run early in the fourth quarter - the fifth-longest run in school history." Congrats to Williams, who takes home the eighth POW honor by a Hokie this year and the first for an offensive back.

According to Norm Wood of the Newport News Daily Press, Virginia Tech left tackle Nick Becton has returned to practice in a limited role.

The coaches are hopeful he'll be able to fully participate later this week. More good news: Cornerback Jayron Hosley and linebacker Alonzo Tweedy also participated today.

Someone Likes Me

I am absolutely flattered to be a part of AOL FanHouse's Twitter 200 (part two here) for college football. John Walters must be a big fan of inanity.
