Clemson Recap / BC Preview

So that didn't go well. Clemson played like the 2nd best team in the nation and VT... um... did not. Despite the loss, there were plenty of fun things from the weekend to talk about. In fact, this pod is jam-packed. The guys recap College GameDay, the bars, pregame festivities, Enter Sandman, along with the game itself. Pete and Billdozer even recorded a drunken postgame pod that has been heavily edited for your enjoyment. Robbie's favorite opponent, BC, is up next and you'll get a full preview for that game as well. Stick around for ATS picks at the end and general college football talk.

The stage is set. Virginia Tech did what they had to do against Old Dominion and now the match-up we've all been waiting for is just days away. The guys could not be more excited. After moving quickly through a recap of the ODU game, they turn their full attention towards Clemson. The Tigers boast a dominating defense and a reloaded offense; beating them will be no small feat.

Well that was a beatdown. Virginia Tech took ECU behind the woodshed on Saturday and Josh Jackson put the rest of the ACC on notice with 5 pass TDs. Robbie and Pete review the offensive highlights and praise the D for a great team performance. Next up is ODU. Will this be a speed bump or a trap before Clemson? The guys get your minds right before discussing the all-time best Lane Stadium match-ups. ATS picks at the end. Go Hokies!

The thrill is gone, for now at least. While VT did pitch a shutout, the win over UD won't be a game many remember. The guys break down what they saw on Saturday, and then move on to ECU; another tune-up before Clemson at the end of the month... hopefully. ATS picks at the end. Go Hokies!

Spring Practice Update

Hope springs eternal. Well it does for Pete and Robbie at least. While there are plenty of reasons to be concerned about Virginia Tech's chances to repeat as Coastal champs in 2017, the guys provide just as many reasons to be optimistic. In this episode, the puzzle that is the spring depth chart gets discussed in great detail, with special attention paid to the brewing QB competition. Who will step up at WR?

The guys recap all the action, and have to come clean on their whereabouts for the second half. The discussion then turns bittersweet as our star QB, Jerod Evans, announced he's leaving VT early to enter the NFL draft.

So close! Unfortunately, VT came up short on Saturday night vs. the Clemson Tigers. It was a valiant effort by the Hokies, one that most of the media didn't expect. Robbie and Pete recap the game while also talking Heisman, Belk Bowl, and some Buzzketball. It's been a great fall for Hokie sports; let's hope it continues throughout the winter.

2017-10-09 10:38:25 UTC 57:42

We're going to Disney World! The Hokies destroyed UVA and are heading to the ACC title game in Orlando. The guys recap the beatdown and discuss the impact of ACC coach of the year Justin Fuente. Clemson's bevy of talent provides reason to be doubtful of VT's chances on Saturday night, but Pete and Robbie detail their keys to victory. Winning the ACC would be huge for Virginia Tech, but there will be no shame in a loss. Let's see if the boys from Blacksburg can pull the upset!

What a comeback! It was more dramatic than it needed to be, but VT got the win over Notre Dame. The guys break down the historic victory and talk about their trip to South Bend. More importantly, it's hate week and the Coastal crown is on the line for the Hokies against UVA. Win, and VT plays Clemson for the ACC title; lose, and the season is a disappointment. Pete and Robbie discuss the many reasons Tech should get the W, but they still couldn't be more nervous. Let's hope it's a happy Thanksgiving weekend.

Buzzketball Season Preview / Notre Dame Week Picks

During the second part of Monday's recording, the guys talked a little hoops. They recapped the opening night win over Maine, and Robbie prodded Pete with some big-picture questions about VT's prospects for the 2016-2017 season. Finally, the guys made their weekly ACC picks against the spread. Both are going with the Hokies, shocker.

GT Recap / Notre Dame Preview
59:29
2017-10-09 10:38:25 UTC 59:29
GT Recap / Notre Dame Preview

Swing and a miss! The Hokies had a chance to clinch the Coastal against GT last Saturday, but whiffed in spectacular fashion. The amount of costly mistakes was mind-boggling, and the guys do their best to sift through the wreckage. After the recap, Pete and Robbie preview the match-up against Notre Dame, which, unfortunately, has lost a lot of its luster. Nevertheless, it's a chance for VT to get back on track before the UVA game, one they need to win desperately.

Duke Recap / GT Preview
01:07:33
2017-10-09 10:38:26 UTC 01:07:33
Duke Recap / GT Preview

Whew, that was a close one! Things got a little dicey down in Durham on Saturday, but the Hokies got the W. The guys give their thoughts on the narrow victory, and then get you ready for game against Georgia Tech. GT's triple option offense always makes for an interesting match-up, but their defense has a lot of holes, something Fuente needs to exploit. With only two ACC games left on the schedule, the Coastal crown is within reach; we'll see if VT can validate their no. 14 playoff committee ranking.

Pitt Recap / Duke Preview
01:02:35
2017-10-09 10:38:26 UTC 01:02:35
Pitt Recap / Duke Preview

Ding-dong, the witch is dead! That's right, we finally beat Pitt at Heinz field! Virginia Tech is in full control of the Coastal and it feels so good. The guys recap the gritty performance and rail on Pat Narduzzi's sideline antics (what a clown). Now that the Hokies have cleared this major hurdle, they need to be in full take-care-of-business mode. The home stretch of the season starts with Duke and coach Cutcliffe. After the preview, Pete and Robbie make their weekly picks against the spread. 

Pitt Preview

2017-10-09 10:38:26 UTC 28:39
Pitt Preview

In the second portion of The Rivermill recording, the guys previewed Thursday's match-up against Pittsburgh. You can tell they're getting a bit toasty, but the content is still there. Pete and Robbie both gush about James Conner, and give plenty of reasons to be fearful of Heinz field, which has proven to be too big a hurdle for the Hokies in years past. If VT can finally beat the Panthers at home, the rest of the season could be special.

Miami Recap

Miami Recap

VICTORY! VT got a huge bounce-back win against the Hurricanes on Thursday night, 37-16. Pete and Robbie are beyond pumped in this episode, enjoying themselves quite a bit while recording on site at The Rivermill. Ryan Dye of The Key Play was also kind enough to stop by, giving the guys a sideline report and providing some insight on the Coastal race. The loss to Syracuse seemed to get Tech's mind right; the rest of the division better watch out.

55:52
2017-10-09 10:38:27 UTC 55:52
Syracuse Recap / Miami Preview

That sound you hear is the Hokies crashing back down to earth. After three impressive wins in a row, VT had a real clunker of game, losing to Syracuse 31-17. After recapping what went wrong, Pete and Robbie put lipstick on a pig suggesting that this loss can be used for motivation going into Miami. Let's hope that Coach Fuente and the boys agree with that. A HUGE Thursday night game awaits this team on a short week. Can the Hokies pick up the pieces and remain in the driver's seat for the Coastal?! Here's hoping.

VT 34, UNC 3. In Chapel Hill. Wow. The guys are riding high after the blowout win over the Tar Heels. Tech loves the slop and it showed. This weekend, the VT road warriors will head to the Carrier Dome, a venue that has magical powers according to Pete and Robbie. Though this game screams TRAP, there is reason to be optimistic. The picks ATS reflect that.

UNC Preview with Joe Lanza

UNC Preview with Joe Lanza

The guys bring in Joe Lanza from The Key Play to help them preview UNC. Both teams are in the AP top 25 after last weekend, and the game couldn't be bigger for the Hokies. All three guys profess their love/hate for Ryan Switzer before making their predictions on how the game will go on Saturday. As always, Robbie and Pete pick the remaining ACC games at the end. Hold on to your turkey legs, Hokie Nation; the season is about to get interesting.

BC Recap / ECU Preview

SHUTOUT! The Hokies destroyed Boston College this past weekend, 49-0, and Pete and Robbie bask in the win. Both the offense and defense showed up big-time. However, the celebration can't last too long with ECU looming on the horizon. The Pirates will bring a challenging passing attack into Blacksburg on Saturday. Can VT finally get over the hump, or will ECU win for the third year in a row? The guys make their picks ATS, and thank a listener for an awesome gift. Kept it under an hour this time, enjoy!

Liberty Recap / Tennessee Preview

The Hokies took care of business against Liberty and moved to 1-0. Robbie and Pete break down the win, and then get you ready for the long-awaited match-up in Bristol vs. the Vols. While both guys like VT against the spread, they don't agree on the outcome. This game is huge in every sense; hopefully, Coach Fuente has Tech ready for the big stage.

This segment of our Cellar recording previews the Miami game. We were kind of drunk by this point and it was recorded before the Miami/FSU game. It should be noted that we failed to mention Miami WR Stacy Coley. He hadn't played the previous three games, but he broke out against FSU with 7 catches, 139 yards, and a TD; definitely another name to watch.
