Techmo Bowl blowout. Georgia Tech ran roughshod over the Hokies, putting up video game numbers in a game that was difficult to watch. Robbie and Pete begrudgingly recap the defensive disaster, attempting to find a reason for why it went so wrong. The road ahead isn't getting any easier either; Steve Addazio is bringing his best BC team in years to Blacksburg this weekend. If we don't see something from Bud Foster's group on Saturday, the Hokies' bowl streak could be in serious jeopardy in 2018. Buckle up, this season may have a bumpy finish.
Rest, no relaxation. The Hokies were off this past weekend, but Bud Foster and the young defense were hard at work preparing for Georgia Tech's triple option offense. The CPJ/Foster chess-match is always fascinating, but how Fuente plans to exploit a GT defense with a lot of its own holes is just important. With a perfect record in the ACC on the line, and a rowdy Lane Stadium behind them, can VT finally get over the Techmo Bowl hump? Or will the Yellow Jackets win for the third year in a row? Pete and Robbie are cautiously optimistic.
A win is a win. After a sloppy game, and a crazy finish, the Hokies head into the bye week at 4-2 and 3-0 in the ACC. Pete and Robbie recap just how lucky VT was to get the W against UNC, and enjoy some pumpkin beers in the process. The bye comes at a good time, as this team certainly needs to get some things figured out before the Coastal race really gets going. Enjoy the week off, it should be a wild second half of the season.
That one hurt. Unfortunately, the Hokies have now contributed to the "Notre Dame is going to the playoff" narrative. Don V, of the Don V Fridays podcast, helps the guys recap the dismal showing against the Irish before previewing UNC. The levity brought by Don in this episode was certainly welcome after a tough week on the field. With that said, VT still has plenty to play for; let's hope the team comes out angry and pulls off the win down in Chapel Hill.
That's how you respond. The Hokies bounced back in a big way with a definitive victory over Duke. Robbie and Pete recap the all the action from Durham before getting you ready for the gigantic contest vs. Notre Dame. Lane will certainly be jumping as Tech welcomes the no. 6, undefeated Fighting Irish to Blacksburg. There's a lot on the line for the Domers; their manageable path to the playoff has been at the forefront of the national conversation since their win over Stanford. However, the refocused Hokies will have something to say about that. The level of play should be high on Saturday night; grab a beer and get your popcorn ready, this is going to be a good one.
