The Hokies open up two more spots.
The NFL Draft started last evening (April 28, 2022) and wow was it an over talked slow walk through one of the most mediocre and unexciting first days in the recent history of TMI coverage. No Hokies were really anticipated to go in the first round, and none did. That’s about all that anyone can say. GO HOKIES!!!
We finished the Power 5 conferences, and now we start looking at the Group of 5 which is nearly the Group of 4 in the future. The AAC somehow managed to become a full conference at the expense of C-USA, so let’s take a look at them, first.
Don’t panic. These were necessary moves for the Hokies.
Abbey is the first Virginia native to commit to the 2023 class.
These types of moves are expected after the end of spring practice.
Grant Wells had a big performance in Virginia Tech’s spring game.
It was an absolutely beautiful day in Blacksburg, mostly cloudy but absolutely no threat of any sort of rain, the stands were surprisingly full, and the game illuminating. Let’s take a look at what’s being remade, and the things that need to be sorted out in the Fall. GO HOKIES!!!
Football is back — sort of.
James Mitchell is expected to be a mid-round pick after injuring his knee last season.
Virginia Tech alumnus Win Sheridan pledged $5 million to his alma mater.
Will it be Jason Brown or Grant Wells?
Lots of changes on defense this spring.
Roth was the longtime voice for the Hokies before moving out west and later returning to Blacksburg.
So out of the "Power 5" we’ve saved the mundane for last. The "Parity and Awe" league has at 14 teams, some stability but it is having an Irish problem. Let’s look at the conference in detail, and then maybe play some crystal ball stuff in the polls. GO HOKIES!!!
Welcome home, Lance Williams.
Quarterback Connor Blumrick is now catching passes.
