Gobbler Country’s: Hokie Evening News Round Up #12-1

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.

The Volleyball team managed what the football team couldn’t. They beat Boston College. 3-0 on their final regular season home game.

They have four tough ACC games on the road to finish up the regular season. Virginia, BC(again), Syracuse, and then a season finale at Clemson.

Hokie Soccer


The men’s soccer ACC Tournament Bid ended today with a 3-0 defeat by UNC. They still expect to get an NCAA Tournament bid, but the quarter final elimination from the ACC Tournament has to be disappointing.

Hokie Basketball


The Hokies defeated Liberty in a special charity exhibition game. That raised over $36,000 for hurricane relief. That’s pretty special and a credit to both squads and fan bases. The people who are still struggling to dig out, mop up, and rebuild their lives will appreciate it greatly.

All things aside, a game is a game, and Tech needed the scrimmage.


The defeat at home, on Homecoming, by Boston College was a bitter pill for lots of folks to swallow, but Treadmill Horse puts the game and the issues into some perspective.

Gobbler Country Will have more to say over the next few days, and this time we will get some pictures up. It was a beautiful Fall day for football and lots of them turned out great even if the game was disappointing.
