Loss to Duke highlights issues for Hokies

Virginia Tech's Demitri Knowles looked at the stats and said he felt like his team should have won. Jack Tyler and others noted that almost all of the Hokies' preseason goals are still very attainable. But the Hokies have questions to answer, and Saturday's 13-10 loss to Duke highlighted several. Most of them center around an offense that clearly is still unreliable...

What The Hokies Are Doing

How does a defensive coordinator try to provide extra motivation to his front seven for an opponent? He lies outrageously. Linebacker Jack Tyler was going on about how defensive coordinator Bud Foster said Pittsburgh’s offensive line was better than Alabama’s when Washington Post beat writer Mark Giannotto, having seen the Panthers surrender seven sacks to UVa a couple weeks...

Virginia Tech wins in 3 OTs against Marshall

Associated Press- Virginia Tech’s Dadi Nicolas brings Marshall’s Rakeem Cato down by his mask. Whether it was a tipped pass that eventually turned into a touchdown, Virginia Tech’s backup kicker missing multiple missed field goals (3 if we are being exact), two turnovers that brought the already long game into the first overtime, or a defensive lineman that almost managed to...

But if you ask linebacker Jack Tyler, he says his Hokies aren’t scared of their week one matchup with the Tide. Here’s what he had to say at Tuesday’s press...

Virginia Tech Football Preview

Disappointment can be a pretty good way of describing the 2012 season for Virginia Tech. The seven wins the Hokies tallied was the lowest win total since 1997, and the first time since 2003 the Hokies failed to reach 10 wins. A lot of the blame was put on the offense, and Frank Beamer made some changes on that side of the ball, hiring a new offensive coordinator. Scott Loeffler comes...

Russell Athetic Bowl: Virginia Tech-Rutgers

Cavaliers look to end long drought against Hokies

The bowl season is starting - and ending - early for Virginia. The Cavaliers (4-7, 2-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) lack the required number of victories to qualify for postseason play, but are treating their game at Virginia Tech on Saturday as their bowl game. There's no team in the country they would like to beat more. The Hokies (5-6, 3-4) have won eight straight games in...

Hokies take ACC hit, fall to Miami 30-12

Virginia Tech lost more than a game on this trip to Miami. The Hokies' streak of 10-win seasons is now certain to end at eight. Another trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game looks doubtful. And at this point, the Hokies will have to scramble just to salvage a winning record. Miami beat Virginia Tech 30-12 on Thursday night, a pair of special-teams miscues...

Spunky Austin Peay loses to No. 15 Virginia Tech

Austin Peay knew playing at No. 15 Virginia Tech was a tall order, and somehow the Governors came away feeling good about their performance despite a lopsided final score. Given little chance of replicating the upset fellow FCS member James Madison handed the Hokies two years ago, the Governors hung around early with some gritty defense before falling prey to that old Virginia Tech...

1) After going up 7-0, the Hokies were unable to keep the Cavaliers from marching down the field on the Cavs best drive of the day. The Hoos took it 73 yards down to Hokie 7 yd-line where they faced a 4th and 2. Trying to make a statement, Coach London decided to go for it and called the same running play that won the game against Florida State the week before. It was the Hokies...
