The Hokie Week On Twitter

Virginia Tech athletes and coaches past and present had a strong week on social media. Here are some highlights.

Women's basketball coach Dennis Wolff recently joined Twitter and was welcomed quickly.

Wolff and all the coaches that play in Cassell Coliseum will have a new sound system at their backs according to wrestling coach Kevin Dresser's recent mention.

The system cost approximately $190,000 and among other features will have the ability to direct sound at specific areas of the coliseum which sounds like a great way to freak people out.

Speaking of coaches in Cassell, Buzz Williams and the men's basketball team completed their "bootcamp" this week and afterwards they all had cookies.

The team has also been traveling around outside the Blacksburg area for training camp. The players and coaches have been meeting and greeting members of Hokie Nation.

If you ever need a pick-me-up, Buzz's twitter feed is a solid place to go for inspiration, motivation and generally good advice.

Football had the weekend off which came at a great time for a banged up Hokie squad. It's too early to tell if the major injuries will have enough time to fully heal though.

DeAngelo Hall is still recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL. He appears to be playing lots of video games and longing for Blacksburg.

Eddie Royal took some time out for a little throwback Thursday action. I was always disappointed this duo wasn't more prolific together, but they had their moments for sure.

Finally, former Tech pitcher Brad Clontz was like most of us busy watching Hokies dominate in the NFL. Check back next week for another look around social media.
