So, with no football in the coming weekend, for us, anyway - I’m going to dig on the Army vs. Middle Tennessee State game this weekend. But the Hokies are putting people on notice that they are fully intending on showing up to play football on September 19th. Here’s the latest hype video to keep your football juices flowing:
Here are some practice pictures to go with the video:
Are they going to broadcast the first football game in front of a green screen so that we can see a full Lane Stadium jumping for their Hokies?
