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. We’re excited because of the fresh faces at key positions for Virginia Tech’s team.

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

As he walked off the Philips Arena court in Atlanta this past March, Virginia Tech guard Erick Green looked up at the scoreboard and saw an all-too-familiar picture in lights. It was another close loss for the Hokies: Duke 60, Virginia Tech 56. That second-round ACC Tournament game marked the 11th time during an agonizing season that the Hokies had lost a game by four points or less, or in overtime.
