OPINION

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Tulane Green Wave in the Military Bowl

So, a near miracle though a bit choppy recovery for the 2023 season has Brent Pry and his (and our) Hokies in a bowl game. Tech shows up at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium with a head of steam and an intact roster. The Green Wave? nozzomush. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies Need a New Approach on Offense to Maximize Talent

Well, we have a pile of returning players, with a two-deep at receiver that is outstanding and a top notch QB and backup. It all goes for ‘mediocre’ if the same ole same ole offense gets put up in 2024. Time for some changes. GO HOKIES!!!!

The 2023 Virginia Tech Hokie Good, Bad, and Uglies after the Hoo Crush

Time for regular season wrap ups, and this good, bad, and ugly will concentrate mostly on the season, and not spend much time with the Hoos since that was amazingly GOOD. GO HOKIES!!!

Wahoos vs. Hokies: News Tidbits, Stuff, and Guesses

This is it. The last week. Or not. If the Hokies win, it’s a bowl bid, if they lose it’s home for the holidays. Which one do they want more? All will be answered by 6:30 PM. GO HOKIES!!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Boston College Eagles: The Good, Bad, and Ugly

Every week that we don’t photograph, there is a G, B, and U unless there is a compelling reason for an "extra". Well, this one was mostly all good things. That’s also a very good thing. NC State week starts after you finish this. GO HOKIES!!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Boston College Eagles: News, Tidbits, and Predictions

It’s Friday before a really important game on Saturday at noon in Boston. Chestnut Hill has been conquered by the Hokies before. They need to do it again to regain some momentum as the final three games of the season arrive with possibilities. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Louisville Cardinals: the Good, Bad, and Ugly of Things

One final look at the Louisville fiasco. The hoops wins were heartening, but we are still obligated to talk about the football games. Louisville is just one we really don’t want to talk about or remember for that matter. GO HOKIES!!!

It’s nearly showtime. What’s the football news, and what are the predictions for this one. This one is going to be difficult to predict because the head and heart are at odds with each other. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies at the Home Stretch of the 2023 Season

It’s the final four games of the regular season (Ooops, did I just say, "regular season"? - knocking wood, knocking wood) and the Hokies have 3 games on the road and 1 at home to prepare for. Louisville, Boston College, NC State, and the Hoos are the home stretch. Let’s look at the adjusted risk levels. No predictions or guesses. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Syracuse Orange: News, Tidbits, and Predictions

It’s not Friday, that’s for sure. It’s Wednesday and the evening before the big Thursday kick. It’s a big game for both teams. Both need wins. Both are on a certain trajectory. Syracuse wants to change theirs, and the Hokies want to reinforce their direction. It’s staff prediction time. AND some news to go with it. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons: Good, Bad, and Ugly - Extra

When you finish the pictures early you can think of other things to say to go along with looking at most of the game a slide at a time. There were good, bad, and ugly things in this one, there always are, win or lose. Question, though - did the Hokies make a big turn? GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons: Preview

It’s Homecoming in Blacksburg. It’s also going to be a miserable wet Saturday. Maybe that bodes well for the favored by a sliver Hokies in a bid to grab one more win to start the 2nd half of the season on the right foot. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Florida State Seminoles: The Good, Bad, and Ugly

There were actually a few good things in Saturday’s loss. Maybe getting the game over with without too many disastrous bumps and bruises was the best thing, but it’s time to go through my takes on the game. Bryan and I don’t agree on everything. So let’s talk about it... GO HOKIES!!!

Well, we had to get to this weekend, and it just had to be on the road, so with a good game and some mo behind them, the Hokies have to travel to Tallahassee. Hopefully they keep up their turn to the positive. No fooling, this is going to be a tough game. GO HOKIES!!!

Time for the staff to tell you how they think that it’s going to go, and some news items to go along with them. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Marshall Thundering Herd: Preview

Under normal circumstances we’d be writing about a home game with Marshall in Lane... not Huntington. The times are no longer normal, and neither are the odds in this one. Big hill to climb on Saturday. GO HOKIES!!!

The Hokies vs. Scarlet Knights Fallout: Good, Bad, and Ugly

Saturday afternoon at roughly 5:00 pm, as halftime led to chili and conversation, it was obvious that the Hokies were struggling, and Rutgers wasn’t. It was just a matter of time, and the dam broke in the 4th quarter. Let’s go over the good, bad, and ugly of this one. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights: Preview

Looking at the week 3 contest and the 2nd with a B1G opponent, Rutgers. This time the Hokies travel to northern Jersey to visit in what could be weird conditions. The Hokies are wounded and the Scarlet Knights are 2-0. Take the Poll it’s going to be a tough game. GO HOKIES!!!

Where College Football is Now and the Immediate Future - Playoffs

The admonition that one should always be careful of what one wishes for is always advisable. We wished for playoffs (with most of college football fandom) we got them, and it wasn’t a nice Toyota. It was more like some hybrid world car monster with a plug and lots of money involved. GO HOKIES!!!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Liberty Flames: Good, Bad, and Ugly for a Dangling Participle of a Win

Another long Saturday predicted for the Hokies.

Virginia Tech vs. Duke staff predictions: Can Hokies break a six-game losing streak?

This is a battle of first-year head coaches. Both are defensive minded, but one seems to have found an offense. It’s not the Hokies’ HC, that’s plain. The staff puts out their predictions. No excessive sanguinity, either. GO HOKIES!!!
