Win, win, loss? Not so fast!

Before the season began, I think of lot of us "outsiders" looked at the BC schedule and listed the first 3 games as win, win, loss. But the way the Eagles played against Wake Forest has made me...

Will the Deacs go to a bowl game this year?

Wake fell short of a bowl game last year; in fact, only 1 bowl game in the last 4 seasons. Historically, that may be about right, but Coach Grobe set expectations a bit higher than that. So, what...

What are the Hokies chances vs Alabama?

Alabama is the DEFENDING NATIONAL CHAMPION. Virginia Tech is the walking wounded, coming off a 7-6 season. Is there ANY way under the sun that the Hokies can pull out a win here? I have to be...

You guys are worrying me... the Penn State game is less than 10 days away and I'm seeing virtually nothing about it! So I have to ask - do you THINK the Orange can/will win this game? I know...

FSU owns AFL - what does THAT mean?

Impact of Louisville on the ACC

No secret - ACC fans are excited about UL joining the league in 2014 (can it just GET HERE already?), as I'm sure most Cardinal fans are as well. What impact do we expect the Cards to have on the...

Like Cincinnati football? Wake football is just as good!

Conference Realignment fever appears to have finally subsided, and it doesn't look like the ACC will be adding any more teams any time soon. However, there remain a few teams everyone continues...

Can the Canes hit for the cycle in playoff bowls?

For those who think the contracts between the Pac-12 and Big Ten have shut the ACC out of the Rose bowl, or that the SEC / Big XII contract has shut us out of the Sugar and Cotton bowls, think...

Goal for Hokies - play in the Rose bowl? (Don't laugh!)

We all read the taunts... The Pac-12 and Big Ten have locked in the Rose bowl, and the SEC and Big XII have locked in the Sugar bowl, and the ACC (some claim) is locked out of those bowls for the...

When will Clemson play another regular season game in Charlotte?

Neutral site games are on the rise. There were 5 neutral site games involving BCS teams in 2011, and 7 in 2012; 8 are scheduled for 2013, 9 more for 2014... so the trend is there. Since 2008, Va...

Best Conference for Va Tech?

I know there has been a lot of fear-mongering when it comes to conference realignment in the last 2 years. Much of that has originated with our neighbors to the West in Morgantown. I also realize...
