Orange Bowl, part duex

So here we are again. Another BCS bowl game, another opportunity for Tech to make a statement. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: You want to be a big time program, you win this football game. In 1995, the Hokies took down Texas in a huge Sugar Bowl upset. 4 years later […]

Bowl Game Handicapping

Catchin Up

We know, it’s been far too long. Here’s a few business points to take care of: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! ACC CHAMPS! We don’t care how we got there, just that we did. WHAT UP ORANGE BOWL!! Over-under of people in attendance: 300. Your humble editor was invited as a guest blogger over at FBS. Check it out […]

ACC Championship Game: So it’s come to this…

First off, let us say this: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Seriously, the ACC Championship game. Are you serious?!?! Who cares how we got here!! We made it, and in the process, beat UVA and kept them out of a bowl. What more could anyone ask for in a single Saturday? There’s not too much to talk about for […]

Game 12: We go to the ACC Championship, UVA stays home for bowl season

Soooooo…. that just happened. 7 points on offense against Duke. It’s a damn good thing Macho scored on that interception, as we would have no doubt turned the ball over again. We turned the ball over more than… some sort of… turnover machine or something. Which is retty much what our offense has become. Seriously, […]

News, Notes, and Taco Bell

With the Georgia Tech win over Miami last night, something utterly ridiculous happened. Virginia Tech now controls their own destiny. No. That is not a joke. If we beat Duke and UVA, we are in the ACC Championship. Get your bomb shelter ready. The world is about to asplode. Now, the chances of this team […]

Game 11: Take out all of your frustrations on some trust fund babies.

We are going to go ahead and gloss over that Miami loss. Any thoughts, feelings, emotions, kidnapping plots, etc. can be found in our previous post. The game was worse than when we forgot how to sit down. It’s that time of year again kids. The annual drubbing of Duke. We know that they beat […]

Bryan Stinespring: Bad Coordinator, or WORST COORDINATOR EVER??

Proceed at your own risk.Where to begin? Where oh where to begin? This may come as a surprise, but we are not football experts here at The […]

Game 10: Miami Hurricanes both suck and blow

Even though we technically gave our Maryland recap, we will admit it was maybe a little concise. Even for our standards. So here goes. In a word: Once again, it is confirmed that there is NOTHING like a Thursday night in Blacksburg. The atmosphere was electric. It was amazing to watch. Well done, Hokie Nation. […]

Maryland Game 9 recap

You want a recap of that awesomeness? Go to ESPN. We just spent today working while hungover, thank you very much Charlie Daniels karoake. Some thoughts on last night’s game? Only one: Greg Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooone We are on the crab. That is all. GO HOKIES!!! Was there any doubt?

Whaaa…. Where are we? Oh, games 8 and 9.

Did something happen 2 weeks ago? We’re not quite sure. We think there was some sort of game, but that was probably just a dream. Not quite though. Kind of a nightmare. Seriously, we might not win another game. We’re not usually pessimistic. But there is certainly a better than 10% chance we lose to […]

Game 7 and 8: We hate everything

You knew this was coming. You knew it, and we knew it. No one wanted to say it, but we have looked pretty pathetic is most of our games. And it finally caught up with us. We weren’t sure if it was actually going to be BC, but it was coming shortly. Some thoughts on […]

Game 6 and 7: Your Champs Sports Bowl victory can’t save you now

You know what sucks? Having a bye week. Thankfully, there were plenty of other good games on last week to get us through a non-Tech weekend. You know what sucks even more? Having to actually work all week. We are phoning this one in, folks. It’s 3 am… ——————————————————— So let’s jump into a quick […]

Game 5 and 6: Tech beats the big red, faces large red trash can

Did we really win? Did we really roll into an 80,000 seat, with all that history and control the game? Hell, we can’t believe we actually controlled a game, let alone one against a Nebraska team with everything to prove. Hey Nebraska… That. Just. Happened. We won’t delve too much into what that win means […]

Game 4 and 5: UNC Recap, Corn F’ers Preview and Predictions

Since the roommate had to be a jerk and go get Rock Band 2 this week, The North End Zone offices have been a little neglected. Sick days increased 400% over the past 3 days. (Seriously, the game is freaking awesome. Last night we played Journey. When was the last time Zelda gave you that […]
