Virginia Tech Football
Gobbler Country's coverage of Virginia Tech Hokies football.
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!!!
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!!!
Brent Pry said Watson is suspended for a violation of team rules.
And it should be Kyron Drones.
The Hokies last lost to Marshall in 1940.
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!!!
It’s a wrap, and went pretty much as predicted. Hokies drop their 2nd B1G game and 2nd game of the season in a ground pounding blowout. The good news is that Kyron Drones started the game, finished it, and was responsible for a good deal of the Hokie offense.
Kyron Drones gets his first start. It was a shaky first half with some good news here and there, but turnovers hand the Scarlet Knights points, and the Tech offense is still ineffective inside the 10. GO HOKIES!!!
Well, it’s Saturday morning, time for a bit of the week’s football news, and the GC Staff predictions for the game this afternoon. Things are in flux, and what was known may not be known, now. One thing is for sure, this is going to be a tough game that the college football world thinks will slip by the Hokies. Hopefully they are wrong. GO HOKIES!!!
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!!!
The Hokies and Rutgers last played in the Russell Athletic Bowl in 2012.
The Hokies are dealing with some key injuries ahead of Week 3.
With few pictures and most of the game on TV because of the storm and 5-hour delay, we churn up a Good, Bad, and Ugly Extra to review the game’s major issues not covered by Bryan’s takeaways. This one wasn’t easy. GO HOKIES!!!!
A lot of concerns coming out of Saturday’s loss.
The rain delay made a mess of everything, and maybe got the Tech players a chance to figure out that they were in serious trouble. Because after a slow start Tech comes back to tie Purdue at the half. GO HOKIES!!!
Jennings’ left foot was in a boot.
Tomorrow at noon, there will be thunder and lightning in Lane. Will that be nature or the team and the crowd? Let’s see, we’ll still show the prep information and our predictions, but wow is the weather looking bad. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s a noon game on Saturday as the Boilermakers of Purdue come to Lane for an early Saturday contest between the B1G and ACC. The weather isn’t looking too good. The teams are very evenly matched, and the odds are close. Take the Poll. Let’s talk about it, first, though. GO HOKIES!!!
We preview this weekend’s game against Purdue with out sister site, Hammer and Rails
Looking at the football news and announcements. Some good news meets some really disappointing news about a key player. Let’s check in and do rounds. GO HOKIES!!!!
No one was particularly sure of what was going to happen this season. The one thing that we can be sure of is that Hokie Nation showed up big on a prime-time broadcast and a potentially shaky team found itself on the good end of a big win. GO HOKIES!!!
Some good, some not so good, but a big win to start the season.
The Hokies are 1-0.
Some good and bad for the Hokies in the first half.
It’s nearly go time. It might be a long Saturday from wake up to kickoff, but it all starts again at 8:00 PM September 2nd. There is a whole lot to prove and even more pride on the line than usual. Hokies need to step up and be great this season. GO HOKIES!!!
We thought we were just going to concentrate on football, but the world of college football is changing faster than anyone expected. The ACC Presidents and Chancellors vote to invite Stanford, UC Berkley (Cal), and Southern Methodist University to join a conference in need of a renaming.
Fans weighed in on three questions regarding Virginia Tech’s 2023 season.
There will be the rolling eyes, and the who cares crowd more excited about the offense or defense from most fan bases, but Hokies are still believers in Beamer Ball, and the specialist positions actually mean something in this program. GO HOKIES!!!
The first depth chart is here.
Virginia Tech is famous for family legacies on the grid iron... No one can forget the Stromans, the Edmunds, the Gallos, the Fullers... wow the list is exhausting. But there weren’t very many times when three pairs of brothers had the potential of playing on the field at one time. This season we might just see that happen. They say that Virginia Tech is Home... Well, here’s the proof. GO HOKIES!!!
