The bowl streak is in major jeopardy.
It’s game time. 3:30 at Heinz Field in the cold snap of mid fall for western Pennsylvania. The weather isn’t much different from the New River Valley Plateau. Will Tech show up and play a full game? Will Pitt grind us out? Let’s see.
This is not going to be an easy trip down chrystal ball alley. Every game is must win, at this point. This team finally has to play a full game. Pitt is beatable. We need to know that.
The Hokies haven’t fared too well at Heinz Field over the years.
Women’s basketball kicks of their season with win, softball releases their schedule, some NFL Hokies meet up, and the the VTvsPITT pump-up video is out!
Saturday at 3:30 the Hokies take to the "Big Ketchup" and face off against the Pitt Panthers. It’s going to be a tough game. It’s always a tough game with them. The outcome is totally unknown except that whatever comes out is going to be banged up even more than when it came in.
Here are some of the best 2nd half pictures. There are lots more, but in reviewing them I started to get sort of upset. This is a game that we could have won. It was really that close up until the offense going into nibble and panic mode.
We can drone on about how disappointed we are, or how painful the season is. That’s not untrue reporting. It’s also not really completely reflective of the big picture, though. There are some really bright spots and some excellent future Hokie performers who are contributing their talents, now. We should recognize them, and look to a bright future that they will lead.
Here is the good half, the first half. Hokies played pretty well for most of the first half of the game, though we should have had 21 instead of just 14. Painful... But the day was beautiful and the pictures were interesting.
Time for a Monday trip around the Hokie Sports Scene. The Women’s Soccer Team got great news, and Some Hokies in the NFL Showing up.
Injuries continue to mount as the season winds down
There were other goings on, and we have some updates on the squad after the BC Game. The Men’s Soccer Team drops the big quarter final game to UNC. Volleyball wins at home over BC. The basketball team makes a contribution to hurricane relief with Liberty University.
