Know Your Enemy: Hokies

As Adam Bisnowaty pointed out, Pitt has won five of the past six against Virginia Tech (although the last loss to the Hokies was in their house in 2013).

Cultural Exchange: Everybody’s Injured for Pitt-VT

When last we checked in with our friends at The Key Play, the defense was expected to be terrifying, Mike Brewer was going to be toughing it out as QB, and the running back situation was unclear except that it would be a group effort that needed to be sorted. Well, here we are a little more than two months later and one of those things is still true. Pierson and I have had another...

Frank Beamer calls East Carolina an exhibition game

Virginia Tech Hokies head coach Frank Beamer doesn’t seem to have any respect for teams that are not in the ACC. Following Saturday’s loss to the East Carolina Pirates at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium — which dropped the Hokies to 2-2 on the season — Beamer sounded off on the opponent and he made some surprising comments. In the eyes of Beamer, the game against the Pirates was nothing...

Hokies halt Hazell’s hope, 51-24

Welp, that didn’t end up as fun as it started. Purdue dropped their home test against Virginia Tech 51-24, after having the game tied at 17 with 2 minutes left in the first half. Unfortunately, the pre-game prediction that any high VT scoring would be fueled by defense and special teams came true. Sigh.

Are You Not Entertained? Hawaii

I’m just glad Virginia Tech/Hawaii week is over. The NCAA really needs to take a long hard look at what it did to OSU and make sure no team ever has to play two games in a week. Credit Hawaii for playing hard but on a short week it was obviously tough to get up for this one. It’s different for a defense so don’t give me that baloney. Anyhow, despite it all, the offense still...

Virginia Tech’s Fine Structure Has Leaked, And It Is Ridiculous

Yesterday, Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster revealed that the coaching staff was considering fining players using their cost of attendance stipends. The idea was quickly shot down by higher-ups at the school, but based on photos revealed by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, it looks like the fine structure was very real, and farther along than the “idea” stage. #BREAKING...
