Virginia Tech Football
Gobbler Country's coverage of Virginia Tech Hokies football.
Running a little late, but there was just a whole lot to talk turkey about. The UNC loss was predictable, but there were some bright spots. We are starting to see lots of new faces. That’s the future and the hope. GO HOKIES!!!
The biggest critique is its length.
It’s not a pleasant duty to write up a loss, it’s even more difficult when it was a drubbing. What in the world could be remotely badder or uglier than what we saw on Saturday? Let’s talk about it. GO HOKIES!!!
Another depressing game for the Hokies, but there were some bright spots.
The Hokies fall to 2-3 on the season.
We knew that this was going to be a tough game, but Carolina’s offense has really giving the Tech defense fits. The Tech offense is doing
It’s dreary and cool in Chapel Hill, and about the same in Blacksburg, so maybe the guys will feel at home. This one is a winnable game, but do the Hokies have enough offense to challenge a struggling Tar Heel Defense, and keep their offense off the field? We’ll have to see, won’t we? GO HOKIES!!!!
I think it’d be a bunch more interesting if this was a basketball game. Just because the football team is struggling so much. Tech has a chance to win this but it is dwindling as the team loses momentum and incremental improvement. It’s going to be tough. Let’s see what the guys think. GO HOKIES!!!
It looks like the Hokies are traveling to Chapel Hill to play another Hurricane Game. Ian might be the biggest thing on the "tough" issues to solve sheet for either team. Jay and John talk about the game, and their feelings about the outcome. GO HOKIES!!!
Can the Hokies score enough to keep up with UNC?
Jay and John review the fiasco from Saturday with sober and look at the game with a couple of days to think bout the disappointment and the realities. GO HOKIES!!!
There were pictures, just not as many "good" ones as I would have liked. The camera was fighting me, and the sidelines were crowded so lots of ruined shots popped up. It was also not a highlight reel event that’s for sure. GO HOKIES!!!
Well, four games have gone by and it’s, as promised, time to reevaluate the risk and odds of winning and losing. Tech’s window of opportunity is closing rapidly. Can this team rise above its presumed 5-7 floor with the remaining schedule? Let’s take a look. GO HOKIES!!!
There aren’t a lot of positives here.
Normally we don’t do this on a home game, but it’s the end of the first 3rd of the season and it’s really time to start evaluation what the last eight games might look like. This one we go over the game and fixing things. The next one will look at the next eight with the risk chart from the preseason re-evaluated. Not pretty, folks. GO HOKIES!!!
Well, it’s five minutes before kickoff. Bryan’s in the Press Box and John’s on the Field with the camera. It’s the first day of Fall, and the weather is definitely Fall in big shovels full. This is a big game and one that the Hokies are going to have to work hard for. There is some news, but this is for commenting... GO HOKIES!!!
Can the Hokies take back possession of the Black Diamond Trophy?
The last time we had pictures for this, it was back in the 2017 season at FedEx Field. Virginia Tech was looking at a first game with a new QB, and a leftover team from a very successful 2016 season. There’s a new QB in this one, too. That’s the only thing that’s the same. GO HOKIES!!!
West Virginia returns to Blacksburg for the first time since 2004.
It doesn’t sound good for Malachi Thomas.
So, here are some pictures from the game on Saturday. The game wasn’t a hair on fire light ‘em up bury the cupcake sort of thing. Coach Pry and staff wanted to exorcise some demons, and get some 2s and 3s critical reps. Looks like he’s a Beamer student, alright. GO HOKIES!!!
Twas the night before game day and all through the town everyone was out buying anything white, and also edible. It’s a beautiful early Fall weekend in Blacksburg and there is a crowd growing, ready to have some fun. GO HOKIES!!!!
It’s an early day at Lane Stadium.
It’s "help the FCS team get some dough" week. And, frankly, it’s a get healthy and snaps for the bench players time. This is the first time that Wofford has come to Blacksburg and the Mike Young connection can’t be dismissed. Join Bryan and John for a quick review and some predictions. GO HOKIES!!!
Bryan and John take 20 minutes to go over their impressions of the BC Game. There’s some team news, superlatives, and some Hokie football hype for you, too. GO HOKIES!!!
It was a throwback to the good ol’ days.
Well, the rain held off and my camera survived. It’s been two and a half years, so my technique and anticipation need to come back, but here are some of the highlight pictures of the 3,463 taken on Saturday evening. What a thrill. GO HOKIES!!!
Don’t you just want to run through a brick wall for this guy?
Brent Pry earns his first win as Virginia Tech’s head coach.
