Not too bad but I hope I missed the partying spots and this is not the best blacksburg has. Hopefully WVU romps the powerhouse marshall or we could be the michigan news of this week. One of the few weekends I root for the Hokies, but this weekend I will be.
With the last expansion the stadium seats about 67,000.Still small by most current standards but loud as heck on a good night. The last one only increased a few seats but added the high dollar luxury boxes for the rich and famous.
Not sure about restaurants with patio's in Blacksburg. Places come and go there all the time and all my old watering holes have closed and changed to other places. There are plenty of bars there though. You have to go downtown on the side streets.
WVU losing to Marshall won't be nearly the upset that Appy State pulled on Michigan, but it would make the headlines of the day. The Michigan fiasco should put all favored teams on notice not to look past a I-AA team, or a "mid-major" I-A team like Marshall.
It really is a shame that the VT/WVU series has ended for the foreseable future. They were always fun trash talking weeks on both sides.
