 The A-Line Board of Football Experts It was a dizzying few days. Tech’s first two games happened in a blur of driving back and forth, one very long tailgate coupled with one very short one, two wins, one a dramatic overtime one, the other a rather perfunctory pounding of a far inferior opponent, two uniform […]
It certainly was a very interesting Thanksgiving holiday. Four days worth of riding back and forth, up and down Christiansburg Hill between Roanoke and Blacksburg, interspersed with excellent ways of spending my time does make for one. My Thanksgiving got off to a rousing start. I was invited to take the holiday meal with four- […]
Last weekend was the occasion of Tech’s biannual visit to the University of North Carolina at the People’s Republic of Chapel Hill. Both teams, as well as the tailgate company, pitched in to ensure it was another good one. I relish all Hokie games in the Old North State, in large part because any of […]
The A-Line Board of Football Experts Well, that was fun. Virginia Tech’s 2009 football season ended where it had begun, in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome against an SEC team.

There is a bit of news, what promises to be an excellent example of media overkill and an Atlanta announcement that will be of interest to some. The ACC last week held its Spring […]
The Virginia Tech Spring Game is now all that stands between us and another dreary Dead Zone. It will be a long four months. The social event that is the Tech Spring Game will mark the end of the 2008-09 sports year. It began with a bonus game trip to South Carolina to watch NC […]
04/23/08 The Spring football season has come and gone. It culminated last Saturday at Virginia Tech with the Spring Game, actually played this year. I’m told it was as most, with virtually nothing to be gleaned. I can’t say for sure, as I didn’t actually see it. I was in the vicinity of Lane, with […]
