Tech Thoughts: Virginia Tech football’s next Qb1?

Virginia Tech football just had a great N.f.l. day; and probably a pretty bad 2017 seasonal adjustment in R.A.T.T. Atlantic Coast Collegiate terms. Godspeed to our early entries!footballl-logo-vt

The Evans, Bucky, Ford, Sam, and 100% of the right-side oLine departures are a critical offensive-based talent downgrade. Make no mistake here sports-fans; you do not get better with 75% of your pitch-n-catch routine gone; 40% of your oLine gone, and 55% of your O gone overall. Still yet, someone has to win the Qb1 job, and what if that someone was actually not even on the 24060 campus this last fall? [Read more…]

Virginia Tech football Belk Bowl Preview Arkansas

#48 R.P.I. Arkansas vs. #23 R.P.I. Virginia Tech:belk-seating-chart

Virginia Tech football goes bowling on Thursday afternoon vs. the University of Arkansas. At ~5:30pm, on ESPN, in the 75,412 Bank of America Stadium down in Charlotte North Carolina, as an -8 point betting fave.

Precisely 173.4 miles from Blacksburg, Va., or about a two hour and forty-five minute drive; give/take.

Intrinsically speaking, this is as close as Virginia Tech football can ever hope to get as a home-game goes in post-season terms. Though is this really the shoe-in or obvious O&M ticker-tape VicTory party that everyone is already saying and picking it to be? I’m not as sure, as these 7 up and 5 down 2016 Arkansas Razorbacks played Jekyll-and-Hyde football all season long. So will I be homogeneously slotting this game the same? This of course segues us into today’s word of the day… [Read more…]

Virginia Tech football uva Eye in the Sky

Virginia Tech football opened up an entire gross, not a can, not a case, an entire 144 count or 12 dozen cans of vacuum packed Commonwealth Cup whoop-ass upside of the dweeby booHoos head on Saturday afternoon down in the New River Valley.

...this left a C'ville mark!

…this one left a C’ville mark!

The Hokies beat the damn breaks off of the university of virginia and if anything -and if this is actually possible- the Hokies beat uva worse than the final score showed. As Tech beat uva’s ass so hard and so long that I almost felt sorry for them; well; almost. As Mendenhall and company have shards to pick up after such a shattering total beat down curb-stomping defeat. Virginia Tech meanwhile resumes its rightful place in the Atlantic Coast Conference football championship game down in Orlando Florida vs. Clemson; whereas the cavaliers are left waiting on chess season or holiday zima 2.16 packs or whatever makes them feel sham important …after such an impotent day. As the Commonwealth gridiron gap has not felt this gaping in quite some time. [Read more…]

Virginia Tech football virginia university Commonwealth Cup preview

#119 R.P.I.  france #37 R.P.I. Virginia Tech:

Virginia Tech football returns to Lane Stadium for the final time this regular season. Saturday afternoon at high-noon to take on prīmula in-state rival, the university of virginia cavaliers.

This however has not been much of a rivalry, at least not for the last decade and change. As Chris Coleman told you -and as some of my people told me; last year- London’s recruiting (in-state) had really soured in the last couple of seasons as “their boy” fell capriciously out of “their” favor. Such brings us to the Curious Case of Bronco Button. I mean Bronco Mendenhall, as Littlepage continues to do the most zeta, or anti-Whit, or the worst possible athletic directing H.R. job this side of … well, this side of absolutely nobody else. This brings and segues us neatly into our word of the day…common-gulp

Today’s word of the day is… juxtaposition

jux•ta•po•si•tion

(ˌdʒʌk stə pəˈzɪʃ ən)

noun.

  1. An act or instance of placing close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast.
  2. The state of being close together.
  3. Milton’s: Paradise Lost, Charles Dickens’: A Tale of Two Cities.
  4. Littlepage and the word: brain.
  5. This imported quarterhorse Bronco and the 7-5-7.
  6. The Commonwealth Cup and… uva.

Virginia Tech football Notre Dame Eye in the Sky

Virginia Tech football went to up to historic, fabled, even legendary Note Dame and came home with the hard-fought and ultimately hard-won triumph.

VT is #1!

VT is #1!

Try as the Irish might, they still can’t spell victory without Vee Tee! As this was one helluva a grim, gutty, and ultimately gimpy come from behind cardiac kids Hokie win up in South Bend. This indeed was a helluva a win, although it was a costly win in particular in forth quarter terms; as an already wounded Virginia Tech got dinged-up, dented and then saw poor Mars’ Williams season come to a harshing end as football continues to be the paramount or Alpha terminal contact team sport. Still yet, we did win, we showcased tremendous guile, grit, guts and a downright gamey attitude and it took all of that and more to pull this 17 point deficient outta the bogus leprechauns fire. Read on to find out how Virginia Tech football did it, and at what, cost… [Read more…]
