It's the most wonderful time of the year... Bowl season! With the help of Jonathan French from The Key Play, Pete and Robbie preview the upcoming match-up against the Arkansas Razorbacks. It should be a good time down in Charlotte, and the guys are optimistic about VT getting to 10 wins. Stick around for Bowl picks and VT trivia at the end. From your friends here at Two Deep, have a safe and happy holiday!
So close! Unfortunately, VT came up short on Saturday night vs. the Clemson Tigers. It was a valiant effort by the Hokies, one that most of the media didn't expect. Robbie and Pete recap the game while also talking Heisman, Belk Bowl, and some Buzzketball. It's been a great fall for Hokie sports; let's hope it continues throughout the winter.
We're going to Disney World! The Hokies destroyed UVA and are heading to the ACC title game in Orlando. The guys recap the beatdown and discuss the impact of ACC coach of the year Justin Fuente. Clemson's bevy of talent provides reason to be doubtful of VT's chances on Saturday night, but Pete and Robbie detail their keys to victory. Winning the ACC would be huge for Virginia Tech, but there will be no shame in a loss. Let's see if the boys from Blacksburg can pull the upset!
What a comeback! It was more dramatic than it needed to be, but VT got the win over Notre Dame. The guys break down the historic victory and talk about their trip to South Bend. More importantly, it's hate week and the Coastal crown is on the line for the Hokies against UVA. Win, and VT plays Clemson for the ACC title; lose, and the season is a disappointment. Pete and Robbie discuss the many reasons Tech should get the W, but they still couldn't be more nervous. Let's hope it's a happy Thanksgiving weekend.
During the second part of Monday's recording, the guys talked a little hoops. They recapped the opening night win over Maine, and Robbie prodded Pete with some big-picture questions about VT's prospects for the 2016-2017 season. Finally, the guys made their weekly ACC picks against the spread. Both are going with the Hokies, shocker.
Swing and a miss! The Hokies had a chance to clinch the Coastal against GT last Saturday, but whiffed in spectacular fashion. The amount of costly mistakes was mind-boggling, and the guys do their best to sift through the wreckage. After the recap, Pete and Robbie preview the match-up against Notre Dame, which, unfortunately, has lost a lot of its luster. Nevertheless, it's a chance for VT to get back on track before the UVA game, one they need to win desperately.
Whew, that was a close one! Things got a little dicey down in Durham on Saturday, but the Hokies got the W. The guys give their thoughts on the narrow victory, and then get you ready for game against Georgia Tech. GT's triple option offense always makes for an interesting match-up, but their defense has a lot of holes, something Fuente needs to exploit. With only two ACC games left on the schedule, the Coastal crown is within reach; we'll see if VT can validate their no. 14 playoff committee ranking.
Ding-dong, the witch is dead! That's right, we finally beat Pitt at Heinz field! Virginia Tech is in full control of the Coastal and it feels so good. The guys recap the gritty performance and rail on Pat Narduzzi's sideline antics (what a clown). Now that the Hokies have cleared this major hurdle, they need to be in full take-care-of-business mode. The home stretch of the season starts with Duke and coach Cutcliffe. After the preview, Pete and Robbie make their weekly picks against the spread.
In the second portion of The Rivermill recording, the guys previewed Thursday's match-up against Pittsburgh. You can tell they're getting a bit toasty, but the content is still there. Pete and Robbie both gush about James Conner, and give plenty of reasons to be fearful of Heinz field, which has proven to be too big a hurdle for the Hokies in years past. If VT can finally beat the Panthers at home, the rest of the season could be special.
VICTORY! VT got a huge bounce-back win against the Hurricanes on Thursday night, 37-16. Pete and Robbie are beyond pumped in this episode, enjoying themselves quite a bit while recording on site at The Rivermill. Ryan Dye of The Key Play was also kind enough to stop by, giving the guys a sideline report and providing some insight on the Coastal race. The loss to Syracuse seemed to get Tech's mind right; the rest of the division better watch out.
That sound you hear is the Hokies crashing back down to earth. After three impressive wins in a row, VT had a real clunker of game, losing to Syracuse 31-17. After recapping what went wrong, Pete and Robbie put lipstick on a pig suggesting that this loss can be used for motivation going into Miami. Let's hope that Coach Fuente and the boys agree with that. A HUGE Thursday night game awaits this team on a short week. Can the Hokies pick up the pieces and remain in the driver's seat for the Coastal?! Here's hoping.
VT 34, UNC 3. In Chapel Hill. Wow. The guys are riding high after the blowout win over the Tar Heels. Tech loves the slop and it showed. This weekend, the VT road warriors will head to the Carrier Dome, a venue that has magical powers according to Pete and Robbie. Though this game screams TRAP, there is reason to be optimistic. The picks ATS reflect that.
The guys bring in Joe Lanza from The Key Play to help them preview UNC. Both teams are in the AP top 25 after last weekend, and the game couldn't be bigger for the Hokies. All three guys profess their love/hate for Ryan Switzer before making their predictions on how the game will go on Saturday. As always, Robbie and Pete pick the remaining ACC games at the end. Hold on to your turkey legs, Hokie Nation; the season is about to get interesting.
Hokies win! Another great game by VT last Saturday, crushing ECU 54-17. Robbie and Pete recap every aspect of the match-up and revise their expectations for Tech going forward. Colby Dant of the Sports Gambling Podcast then joins the guys for their weekly picks segment and gives some of his favorite plays for this upcoming weekend. No game for the Hokies, but Two Deep doesn't believe in bye weeks.
SHUTOUT! The Hokies destroyed Boston College this past weekend, 49-0, and Pete and Robbie bask in the win. Both the offense and defense showed up big-time. However, the celebration can't last too long with ECU looming on the horizon. The Pirates will bring a challenging passing attack into Blacksburg on Saturday. Can VT finally get over the hump, or will ECU win for the third year in a row? The guys make their picks ATS, and thank a listener for an awesome gift. Kept it under an hour this time, enjoy!
The guys survived Bristol! Though their livers are still aching, Robbie and Pete had a fantastic time tearing it up with the Tennessee locals. In this episode, some light was shone on the BaB, and the dreaded game against Boston College was discussed. As always, picks ATS were made; third time's the charm with VT giving points...
The Hokies took care of business against Liberty and moved to 1-0. Robbie and Pete break down the win, and then get you ready for the long-awaited match-up in Bristol vs. the Vols. While both guys like VT against the spread, they don't agree on the outcome. This game is huge in every sense; hopefully, Coach Fuente has Tech ready for the big stage.
IT'S GAME WEEK! Finally, the season has arrived and the guys couldn't be more excited. In this episode Robbie and Pete are joined by Jonathan French from thekeyplay.com to discuss VT's offensive and defensive schemes. After the interview, they tell you what to look for in the opener against Liberty, and if you can make it to the end, you'll hear picks ATS for this weekend's awesome slate of games. Here's hoping for 1-0, GO HOKIES!

With the 2016 season about 50 days away, the guys dive deep into the second half of the Hokies schedule. Recruiting is the hot topic on social media, and it's been a bit of a cruel, cruel summer for VT; Robbie and Pete offer some perspective before getting into their Miami and Pitt previews.
It's the slowest part of the offseason, but the Two Deep guys don't take the summer off. In this episode Pete and Robbie take a look at the first half of the 2016 Virginia Tech football schedule. If you stick around all the way to the end (it's a long one), you'll hear Robbie fail miserably at VT trivia.
The title says it all. Robbie and Pete cover all the latest Hokie news and then dive as deep as they can into Fuente's first spring in Blacksburg. The spring "game" gets broken down, and the guys discuss which players they thought took a step forward. If you're really bored, stick around for Hokie trivia at the end of the show!
Dan Wolken of USA Today joins the guys to discuss the state of the VT Football program and what Coach Fuente's impact will be. Topics included recruiting, player development, and on-field expectations for 2016. There was even some Buzzketball talk at the end. This is a must-listen episode, Hokies.
