A night has passed, although I'm sure the strong feelings emanating from the Hokies' fan base haven't after yesterday's 17-13 loss to Pitt in the ACC opener. Read all of our stuff on these links:
The Hokies lost in ugly fashion Saturday to Pittsburgh and probably continued to lose a few more fans. Head coach Frank Beamer vowed to make changes, although he didn't specify what afterward.
BLACKSBURG — Frank Beamer’s postgame briefing with his team was short and his answers at a terse press conference that followed even shorter, the frustrations of Virginia Tech’s 17-13 ACC-opening l...
BLACKSBURG — Offense has been scarce after one half at a rainy Lane Stadium, where Pittsburgh holds a 10-7 lead on Virginia Tech.
It's game day in Blacksburg. Hope you brought a poncho.
BLACKSBURG — Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi knew what Frank Beamer meant.
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 ...
There was big news this afternoon: All-American cornerback Kendall Fuller is out for the rest of the season with a torn meniscus. He had surgery Tuesday.
The news on All-American cornerback Kendall Fuller was as bad as the Hokies feared.
We spoke to mostly defensive players and coaches after practice Tuesday. Some of that I used in my story for Wednesday's paper about the Hokies' tackling troubles, especially against mobile quarter...
BLACKSBURG — The disgust on the faces of the Hokies’ defensive players told the story when asked what their film review session was like, the day after they had numerous missed tackles that contrib...
Four weeks in, the Hokies have four rushers sharing the load -- Travon McMillian, J.C. Coleman, Trey Edmunds and quarterback Brenden Motley -- a development the Internet simply can't ignore.
BLACKSBURG — Frank Beamer’s not a doctor, nor does the Virginia Tech head coach pretend to be one, referring nearly all medical questions to the team’s head athletic trainer.
Virginia Tech put out some injury notes earlier Monday. To summarize, cornerback Kendall Fuller (knee) will re-evaluated today but doesn't sound like he'll play Saturday, linebacker Andrew Motuapua...
The Hokies released the following injury updates before their Monday media availability:
For Hokies fans who are waking up, wiping their eyes and collectively wondering if last night really happened, I'm here as the bearer of bad news: it did. Here's everything we wrote form Virginia T...
Not the result Hokies fans were hoping for in Greenville today. I documented the ugliness in my game story, which you can read here.
GREENVILLE, N.C. — A fast start is a distant memory for Virginia Tech, which trails East Carolina 21-14 at halftime in a driving rain at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
It'll be a bright and early drive from Blacksburg to Greenville this morning for today's Virginia Tech-East Carolina game.
The East Carolina game is tomorrow, so now's a good time to take a deeper look at the matchup.
If you missed the live chat earlier Thursday, it was a rousing good time. Read the replay here. Oh yeah, and A.J. Hughes did this the other day.
Great chat today, with roughly 25 questions about what the Hokies might do if Brenden Motley is performing great when Michael Brewer is ready to return to action. But we got some other stuff in the...
BLACKSBURG — King’s Fork High football coach Joe Jones sat in Lane Stadium last year like a proud papa, watching his program’s two recent standouts, Virginia Tech safety Chuck Clark and East Caroli...
Aaron McFarling and I did another podcast that we recorded Tuesday.
We had a decent round of interviews tonight with mostly defensive coaches and players. Here are a few main takeaways.
BLACKSBURG — Shane Beamer had a quick retort Monday to a question about if he still coached the Virginia Tech kickoff return teams, which have lagged in recent years.
BLACKSBURG — No matter how Virginia Tech seems to be playing heading into its nearly annual matchup with East Carolina, it has a tough time.
A few coaches and players met with the media for interviews at today's press conference. There's nothing tonight (a change to the normal schedule), so these are all the quotes coming today. Here ar...
We're on the road back from Indianapolis early this morning, because Aaron McFarling has an adult league baseball championship to win, but we're mobile reporters, so our coverage doesn't stop.
The Hokies got contributions in all three phases Saturday, rolling past Purdue 51-24 to improve to 2-1 this season.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Virginia Tech has far more yards but not that many more points, leading Purdue 24-17 at halftime at Ross-Ade Stadium on Saturday.
Good morning from Indianapolis, where it rained quite a bit last night but should clear up in West Lafayette for today's Virginia Tech-Purdue game. Pretty nice town in Indy, where they have a heck ...
We're on the road for Indianapolis, where we'll stay before the Hokies' game Saturday in West Lafayette. But here's a little daytime reading with a look at the matchups between Virginia Tech and Pu...
I was going to post this tomorrow morning, but now's as good a time as any.
Solid chat today. Went for the usual hour and a half. If you missed it, read the replay at the bottom of this post. (And forgive my seemingly non-complete answers on Chris Durkin working some at ti...
OK, we're back in our podcasting groove.
It'll be redshirt sophomore walk-on Sean Huelskamp as the starting mike linebacker for the Hokies at Purdue on Saturday, with true freshman Carson Lydon burning his redshirt to back him up. That wa...
BLACKSBURG — Before the season, Bud Foster said the one position on his Virginia Tech defense where losing a starter would hurt the most was at mike linebacker.
The news from earlier is that mike linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka is out for up to four weeks with an MCL sprain. I wrote about that and the how the Hokies are preparing for their first road game at ...
BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech’s football team hits the road for the first time this year with Purdue on tap Saturday, but the Hokies will do so without inside linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka, who could m...
Hokies mike linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka could miss up to four weeks after suffering a sprained MCL of his left knee in Virginia Tech's 42-3 win against Furman on Saturday.
It was not exactly an endless supply of information at today's press conference. We only got two players and head coach Frank Beamer. Here are a few takeaways, though:
First here's everything we wrote about the Hokies' win against Furman yesterday:
The Hokies had an easy time with Furman 42-3 on Saturday. Here's everything that we wrote:
BLACKSBURG — With injured quarterback Michael Brewer watching over his shoulder in the press box, Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler glanced down on the field, thinking Brenden Motle...
BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech’s ahead comfortably on Furman, but its offense has left a lot to be desired.
You didn't have to wait long for another game day to get here. If you missed anything we wrote about the Furman matchup -- and in the aftermath of the Ohio State game -- the links are below.
I liked the matchup format I did last week. Let's do it again.
