I told you Tuesday morning that there was a court storming situation planned for Maryland. It happened. So let’s figure out tonight’s court storming. It’s not happening in the Duke-Virginia Tech game (9, ESPN2). Maybe Indiana-Northwestern (7, BTN) is our game. Just because Northwestern needs something to get excited about. The real game you want to watch is Baylor-Iowa...
The NFL Network's Molly Qerim didn't know about Ohio State losing to Virginia Tech, thankfully DeAngelo Hall was there to educate her.
Here I assumed Molly Qerim was hired by the NFL Network for her football knowledge.

Molly needs to clean up the...

Well, that was just dumb. The whole thing. From start to finish, the game between Syracuse and Virginia Tech was a one we probably all want to scrub from our memories. Syracuse had basically zero business coming back and winning, but that’s exactly what happened as the undersized and over-matched Hokies started giving the ball […]
We’re only a couple hours from Syracuse taking the court against Virginia Tech, and right around 12 hours from football recruits being able to send in their letters of intent as National Signing Day kicks off on Wednesday. There’s a lot going on in Syracuse sports, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still squeeze in […]

Syracuse led the Hokies 42-23 at halftime in Blacksburg back on January 3, only to see that margin nearly slip away completely. The Orange were one […]

The Wildcats and Virginia are the lone two unbeatens left, though Virginia had to survive a scare from Virginia Tech last week that would have sent them tumbling down the rankings if the Hokies had managed to pull off the […]
