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.
