Tech was off this past weekend, but the banged-up Hokies were hard at work preparing for Duke's tricky offense. The Cutcliffe/Foster chess-match is always fascinating, but how Fuente plans to exploit a veteran defense with few holes is just as important. With a rowdy Lane Stadium behind them, can VT finally get back to mistake-free football? Or will the Blue Devils put a pitchfork in our season? Pete and Robbie are cautiously optimistic.
A win is a win. After another sloppy game, the Hokies head into the bye week at 2-1. Robbie and Pete give their thoughts on the addition of former head coach Jerry Kill before recapping what they saw against Furman. The bye comes at a good time, as the team certainly needs to get some things figured out before the Coastal race really gets going. Enjoy the week off, it could be a bumpy rest of the season.
Consider our expectations tempered. While VT did avenge last year's loss, the win over ODU won't be a game many remember. The guys break down what they saw on Saturday before moving on to Furman, an FCS opponent that has them spooked. Extended ATS picks at the end. Go Hokies!
Give it away, give it away, give it away, wow. The offense let us down and the defense wasn't ready in a disappointing loss to Boston College. Addazio did VT dirty as his physical team put a hurtin' on the Hokies. Robbie and Pete recap the game before diving into commentary on the team's identity. There was plenty to be angry about, but the fire shown by the defense in the second half was certainly a pleasant surprise. This young Tech squad can still make some noise this year, but first, they must exorcise their demons from the 2018 ODU game. Give 'em hell, Hokies!
