    Like you, I’m excited about the start of another college football season, and this year, that excitement comes with the usual hopefulness, but a bit of anxiety as well.

But the anxiety exists because there are more questions than normal for the Hokies as the season opener against top-ranked Alabama nears. ... Read More
