Countdown to Signing Day: DE Vinny Mihota

by JustinC January 13, 2014

Vinny Mihota kicked off this 2014 class with an extremely early commitment almost two full years before he would enroll here at Virginia Tech. Between then and now, not much has changed. Alabama decided to toss their hat into the ring, hoping to sway the Virginia Tech commit. But, Mihota is truly a Hokie who […]

Countdown to Signing Day: DT Steve Sobczak

by JustinC January 12, 2014

Over the years, the highly touted defensive tackles we’ve brought into the program have generally struggled. The undervalued, under-recruited types generally flourish. Steve Sobczak chose between Virginia Tech and James Madison University. Nick Saban never called him up to chat and even UVA never recruited him that hard. I think it’s clear that Sobczak will […]

Tech Falls To Boston College 62-59

by Tyler A January 11, 2014

The Boston College Eagles came into Cassell Coliseum 0-2 in the ACC, but were able to beat the Hokies 62-59 to notch their first conference victory. This was a close; back and forth game from start to finish. Looking at this game on paper I really thought the Hokies would find a way to win […]

Syracuse Pulls Away Late To Beat The Hokies 72-52

by Tyler A January 8, 2014

The Hokies lost to Syracuse on Tuesday night 72-52 inside Cassell Coliseum (Tech is now 8-6 overall and 1-1 in the ACC). Tech was able to hang in for most of the game but eventually Syracuse talent and depth made a difference. A long scoring drought by the Hokies is what caused this game to […]

Countdown to Signing Day: RB Marshawn Williams

by JustinC January 8, 2014

After Virginia Tech’s crushing 42-12 loss to UCLA, Mark May and Lou Holtz criticized, albeit fairly, Virginia Tech about their lack of playmakers on offense. For the most part, they were right. The Hokies lacked a proven playmaker at running back, wide receiver, and at times, quarterback. There were no David Wilson’s, no Ryan Williams, […]

Countdown to Signing Day: WR Jaylen Bradshaw

by JustinC January 7, 2014

Determination is an under-appreciated skill. When Jaylen Bradshaw showed up in Blacksburg in June, he didn’t have any major scholarship offers. By the end of the day, the Hokies extended him a verbal offer that he accepted immediately. That determination to show well enough at a one-day camp is something that has allowed Bradshaw to […]

Countdown to Signing Day: QB Andrew Ford

by JustinC January 6, 2014

  Virginia Tech’s efforts on the recruiting trail this year were honorable but I think looking back, the Hokies may feel a little queasy at some of the quarterback talent they missed out on.  That said, they still landed two good ones in this class and we’re going to talk about our first quarterback commitment […]

Final Thoughts: Sun Bowl Edition

by Tyler A January 6, 2014

UCLA beat the Hokies 42-12 in the Sun Bowl. It wasn’t a good final chapter to the seniors’ for their last game as Hokies, especially for Logan Thomas. Tech was able to hang in for much of the game, but eventually the Bruins were able to pull away. The outcome of this game was unfortunately […]

Countdown to Signing Day: OT Brady Taylor

by JustinC January 6, 2014

It’s been close to a decade since Virginia Tech possessed a strong, tough, and physical offensive line.  Thankfully, the Hokies have recruited well on the offensive line this 2014 recruiting class and those days are surely numbered.  Brady Taylor was the last piece of the puzzle when it came to the “Fab 5” and Tech […]

Isaiah Ford Decommits, Down to Virginia Tech and South Carolina

by JustinC January 5, 2014

The Hokies are working hard to put the finishing touches on this 2014 recruiting class.  On Sunday morning, Tech received some good news in the wake of Charlie Strong’s rumored acceptance of the head coach position at Texas.  Louisville commitment and three star wide receiver Isaiah Ford has decommitted.  The Hokies are the rumored favorite […]
