VIRGINIA TECH RUMORS

Miami Repeats With Blowout Win Over Virginia Tech

By Austin Sapin When a team combines for 25 runs in the first two games of a series, you know their offense is clicking. For the No. 11 Miami Hurricanes however, this may just be the norm. Following an 11-1 win over Virginia Tech in game one of the series, the Canes used a balanced but lethal offensive attack to crush the Hokies 14-4 on Saturday night. Just like in Friday night...

Virginia Tech DC Bud Foster On Ohio State Matchup, “They’ll Want To Score 100 Points On Us”

Ohio State’s coaches and players won’t admit it, but the Buckeyes will be seeking a little bit of revenge when they open their season Sept. 7 against Virginia Tech.  Urban Meyer’s team, of course, won the national championship this past season, but it did lose a game in 2014. It was a game – a non-conference contest, at home, to an unranked opponent – that the Buckeyes...

Preview: FSU Women Face Hokies to Open ACC Tourney

The Florida State women’s basketball team will begin the ACC Tournament on Friday with a game against Virginia Tech. Florida State had a high enough seed (2) to avoid playing in the first two rounds. The same could not be said for the Hokies, who came into the tournament as the lowest seed, having suffered nine straight losses to end the regular season. They had just one win over...

Silent G gets Loud in Crunch Time against Hokies

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 […]

Syracuse vs. Virginia Tech: The Battle for the Grove

Sure, Syracuse has already beaten Virginia Tech once this season, albeit in a game that included the kind of dismal second half performance the Orange would love to forget. 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 […]

Adam Smith’s Huge Three-Pointers Lifts Hokies to First ACC Win of Season

Virginia Tech had lost 13 straight Atlantic Coast Conference games, and had not beaten an ACC team not named Miami since March 2, 2013. All of that came to end thanks in part to two huge three pointers by junior guard Adam Smith, as the Hokies clipped Pittsburgh 70-67 in overtime. Smith drained a huge three in the waning seconds of regulation to tie the game at 62-62 to send the...

Second viewing thoughts and grade report: Virginia Tech

Addazio continues to surprise in the best ways. For a guy who wears his emotions on his sleeve and chews out any official within reach, he stays remarkably calm when BC is down. Down early and he's composed. Blow a big lead and he seems engaged, not stressed or defeated. It is not what I expected and I think it makes for good game management. I hope Addazio is with us a long time...
