The football team is getting ready for a road trip to Norfolk, and the Men’s Soccer team gets ranked. The sun is out in Blacksburg, and things are drying out a bit. We take a tour of the Wednesday sports world from the New River Valley.
Men’s Soccer Returns to Their Winning Ways, VT Wrestling Turns Heads Internationally, and a Couple Hokies Meet Up in the NFL.
We take a first look at the ODU game. The importance of a win in Norfolk is more than just an additional ‘W’ and some major stats upgrades. First, a win is not guaranteed, it would be foolish to count on it. Second, this is in the 757, and our first chance to really show our stuff for the Tidewater Hokies, and the rest of the 757. GO HOKIES!!!
Florence is just about blown past as a very wet tropical depression. There is water everywhere, and the activity level of Virginia Tech reflects the somberness of the weather. The Volleyball team lost a match, the Women’s basketball team is ramping up practices, and football is getting ready to head to Norfolk to play ODU.
Three ACC teams were idle due to Hurricane Florence, but the conference is starting to settle out.
The College Polls are out, and suddenly the Hokies find themselves in the Coaches’ top 10 at #10. Warning folks, BC is ranked 25, undefeated, and will be visiting Lane in the midst of a tough ACC run. We stay put at 13 for the AP Poll.
Offering early food for thought regarding the Hokies’ basketball schedule.
So, Jay suggested some games, let’s take a look at what sorts of results we’ve had besides an empty Lane stadium and a trip to Hobby Lobby to get some Fall and Christmas decorations.
Celebrating what looks to be a young and talented Hokies roster...I know, optimism from me, right? Go figure.
The storm has sure quieted things down. Lots of scrambling around, looking at schedules and seeing if opponents can be lined up in open slots. We aren’t the only programs looking to do some schedule changes to make up a game. Big storms can do that.
Well the world suddenly went quiet on the football front, but that hasn’t stopped the men’s soccer team, and volleyball from both notching convincing wins.
There were some great picture opportunities for the game on Saturday. Here are some highlights, and the rest will be on our Facebook page. GO HOKIES!!!!
East Carolina has decided that they aren’t going to travel to Blacksburg for Saturday’s game. There was a glimmer of hope since the storm track is showing that the storm will ablate quickly and head west from the coast instead of north west, but it’s not hard to understand the school’s concern - ECU is already closed and evacuating.
