It’s three games into the season, the ACC Coastal schedule awaits, and Duke is coming to Lane next Friday. Where are the Hokies, objectively? We are 2-1, but few people are comfortable with that even with the narrow BC win in the first game. Duke might just be the most critical game of the season, but we need to know where we are first.
It’s been one of those weeks, with lots of things going on, and a bye week scheduled so we’re going to split this up into a couple of picture essays.
Well, no one is going to poll much of anything with a squeezed out win over a good FCS team. We got a win, by sucking it up, scrambling, and hard work in the 2nd half. Not much changed, though. Clemson is still riding the top of a non-descript pile.
Let’s get geared up to start Bud Foster’s last season with a sentiment befitting his long 33 year tenure at Virginia Tech. He’s our original Lunch Pail carrying defender. Here’s your chance to make a unique statement with a quality Tee Shirt from BreakingT.
Virginia Tech moves to 2-1 on the season.
The Hokies could potentially add two more elite recruits to the class of 2020.
Could it get any worse? Please, don’t answer that.
It’s five minutes to kickoff, and we are on the air for comments, groans, gifs if you have them, and general griping and complaining if necessary. The Jumping is over, the whistle is about to blow. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s Friday, and that means it’s predictions day. This one isn’t so easy. Not because we could lose, because short of a total meltdown we won’t, but what will we accomplish? Maybe a bit of consistency? We’ll see add your opinion.
Furman is a good football program from one of our old conferences. (In the days when Virginia Tech was mostly a 1AA program.) This won’t be a trap game, but Furman needs to be taken seriously. It’s also a great opportunity to get some 3’s and 4’s some playing time.
It was a bright sunny day in Blacksburg. There were lots of fluffy clouds to block the harsh feel of the direct sunlight, and a nice breeze stirring up the air. Lane Stadium was slow to fill, and just barely passed 57K fans. It was a good day, though. A win is always good.
Things were better, but still lots to work on.
The second week of the SB Nation FanPulse without the Hokies, which should be expected, but the good news is that we are seeing a bit more hope in the fan base.
Bryan and John talk over their impressions of the ODU Game. It was the first game of the season at Lane Stadium. It was a beautiful breezy day and the outcome was a very desirable win even if some folks seem to be tuned to look for bad news everywhere. Let’s see what you think. We put it on the line, how about you? GO HOKIES!!!
It wasn’t particularly inspiring, but a win nonetheless.
It’s Game Day #1 in Blacksburg! The Monarchs of Old Dominion University are visiting and the Hokies are looking for a measure of revenge for last year’s debacle. Time to be the Power 5 team that we can be. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s time for predictions. As we have had a little bit of feedback, we are using this one to post both the written predictions, and the Preview and Predictions Podcast. There are lots of weird feelings about this game. Seems like this might become sort of a grudge match. Good.. go out and win, BIG Hokies...
The voting has ended, and the stats have been collected. Here are the results from the SB Nation FanPulse Top 25 Poll, and the results of the question about the satisfaction with the direction of the program. Guess what? No Bueno...
Thursday is Review Day. Here’s a quick look at the game on Saturday. It’s a noon kickoff, and the weather is going to be mostly late Summer and sunny, much like the 2017 edition. Let’s hope the outcome looks much the same, if not better. GO HOKIES!!!
After good a decent conclusion to a tough season last year there was a good and hopeful vibe coming into the year. After the Hokies performance in Boston college that vibe has turned around a good bit.
It wasn’t all bad.
Bryan and John go over the Boston College game in our third podcast. It wasn’t all bad. But a loss is a loss, so we take a look at the good and bad on both the defense and offense. This was a game that could have been won. We really despise when the Hokies beat themselves.
Hokies fall 35-28 and drop to 0-1 on the young season.
The situation is not good. There are flashes of brilliance, but a muffed punt canclled a great stop, and the Hokie D is getting shoved around. The offense is sputtering with inconsistent play calling and some painful mistakes... It’s a tough game for the Hokies.
It’s Game One of the 2019 Season. The Hokies are up against it this season. They have a whole lot to prove. The Eagles seem to be where we were last season. Young and inexperienced. Join in the Commentary as the game unfolds.
Bryan and John Talk about this afternoon’s game. Predictions are what they are. Listen and see if you agree...
Isaiah was great and football is upon us.
Previewing the Boston College vs Virginia Tech Season and ACC Opener. The Hokies travel to Chestnut Hill spoiling to return the favor of the home loss last season.
Randall is one of the more underrated players in the history of Virginia Tech football.
Not a ton of surprises on the first official depth chart.
