Virginia Tech basketball Boston College preview

#36 R.P.I. Virginia Tech @ #204 R.P.I. Boston College:

Virginia Tech basketball climbs Chestnut Hill up @Boston College on Saturday afternoon in the made for TV Atlantic Coast Conference tilt at 4 PM, this weekend on Raycom Sports Network (check your local listings).

The Flying Eagles fly back home perched at a very modest looking 9 up and 19 down overall and a clipped looking 2-13 inside the A.c.c. In point of fact, Boston College has won not one game since we last saw them going none for their last eleven most recent contests. As most of the hooping cognoscenti would agree, Boston College is the zeta team or fifteenth best in an Atlantic Coast race of 15 as these grounded Eagles have won exactly one D-1 men’s hoops contest since New Year’s Day; and they have only been real competitive in a single game since we saw them last. That reads like a team that is starting to let go the 2o17 rope or possibly has already figured out how to L. Nevertheless, who will win this one? Read on to find… out. [Read more…]

#184 R.P.I. Boston College @ #36 R.P.I. Virginia Tech:

Virginia Tech basketball hosts Boston College on Sunday evening in the made for TV Atlantic Coast Conference Sunday night game for the Black Effect game at 6:30 PM, on ESPNU.

The Flying Eagles swoop into our Cassell perched at a very modest looking 8 up and 12 down overall and a clipped 2-6 inside the A.c.c. In point of fact, Boston College has won one game since New Year’s Day going one for their last seven most recent contests. This makes Boston College a binary clash, at least in my book. As most of the hooping cognoscenti would agree, Boston College is the zeta team or fifteenth best in an Atlantic Coast race of 15. The good news is we do play them twice before 2017 ends; the real news is that both games are must wins if Coach Buzz and company wanna give the NC2A’s so much as a sniff. As this is simultaneously our most likely remaining win and it is also a pure must win -all the more so at home- making this game a duality of likelihood and need or a binary match-up indeed. Nevertheless, who will win? Read on to find…. out.

Virginia Tech football Boston College Eye in the Sky

Virginia Tech football just opened an entire case, no, check that; they just opened an entire gross of vacuum packed whoop-ass upside Boston College’s head. To the tune of a 49-o blowout victory at home, and the worst ass kicking Boston College has taken in 74 years. That, and if anything; Virginia Tech football plucked the Eagles good and hard or even worse than the score showed.

built Ford tough!

built Ford tough!

The Hokies smoked Boston College and Chris Coleman of techsideline.com is correct; the Hokie fan base needed that one like a dead man needs a coffin. As lottsa things actually improved, a few things still need a bit more O&M spit-n-polish; and yet all and all that was indeed, a totally freakin’ epic Fighting Gobbler flavored day. And oh by the way, what would Virginia Tech-48.5 have paid out at the Vegas betting window had you got that wager in by 1:29 their time?!? Me too on: wish I had; …and me neither on not even in my widest dreams. [Read more…]

#1o1 R.P.I. Boston College #67 R.P.I. Virginia Tech:bc-helmet

Virginia Tech football returns home at the widely predicted mark of 1-1 overall, .5oo, even, or on the level. As most of the prognosticinti got that one right; and this just in, rain is rumored to be wet. Yes, our beloved Hokies could have voluntarily won that one, though that is like saying the USofA was still ahead on points on December 6th, or extinguishing a burning bridge via split milk. Here we eschew that, for that matters nil…

The Hokies had their chances vs. UTenn and yet limped away from the Bristol Motor Speedway track per what film-study showed to be more or less, or rather should I say more and more, with an ugly self-inflicted wound. Said wounded team now must buck-up and avoid the likely emotional let-down trap game vs. a very defensively rugged –albeit likewise very offensively limited- Boston College football club. Yes, Virginia Tech is -6 (or a six point) home favorite in this 3:33pm ESPNU kick-off. Nevertheless, Boston College has given our beloved Hokies football fits for years as wins vs. Boston College are not technically a given, and clean or good looking wins vs. Boston College are few and far between. Read on to find out who will win, in what posits to be a potential baseball score or ugly looking football game in Lane…?

#115 R.P.I. Virginia Tech @ #224 R.P.I. Boston College:

The Eagles have lost a school-record 14 straight games, breaking the tie with the 1999-2000 team with Wednesday’s loss at Clemson. Then went on to suffer a total beat-down Sunday night vs. suspended, troublesome and therefore vulnerable Wake Forest.BC-hoops-logo

48-74 against @Wake is just not encouraging. In particular with Wake coach Danny Manning on the warpath and this being your one fairly decent shot to carve one more winning notch in your 2015-2016 belt.

Because if this was a football preview opener; my Word of the Day would prolly be: capitulation.

7 up and 20 down overall and a miserable and yet perfect o for 14 in Atlantic Coast terms is about as capitulated as you can get.

As this sure looked like a team in a hurry to get things over with…

…or a team that has already let go of the proverbial, rope.
