Hurricane Joaquin doesn't look like it's going to be a whole lot of fun in the next couple days. It's going to rain and rain and rain. The field can handle it. The question is: can the fans?
If you missed today's live chat, read the replay here, but now it's time to take a look at the other side.
A much more rational-minded chat than I thought it'd be today. Didn't seem like anybody was on the verge of jumping off a cliff. If you missed out on the fun, you can read the replay at the bottom ...

BLACKSBURG — No matter how Virginia Tech seems to be playing heading into its nearly annual matchup with East Carolina, it has a tough time.
