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.

Got everything packed and ready to go camping on the LSU campus. Game day starts at nine and bloody marys start at ten. The excitement around here is fever pitch. We have lots of food, drinks, and friends and that's what I'm talking about. We're expecting a great game from our country's two outstanding teams, top ten, and that's what I'm talking about. We are pumped. Good luck to Vt and it's great fans who have endured so much pain and suffering lately.

You mean you have to pump up VT??? They're top ten because the media is biased. They are barely a top 20 team.

After tonight's fiasco, we better drop on out. VT is not prepared this year and it shows. I quit watching after 24 - 0. After my day I'm too tired to sit up and watch anymore of it.

Congratulations J.R. and Mike. LSU looks like national championship material this year. Good luck to them the rest of the way.

Our offense played as well as advertised. After last week, I am not too surprised that the defense didn't play that well either. Right now, VT is not properly prepared and the coaching staff needs to find out the problems before ACC play begins. We have two more patsies the next two weeks to practice on to get it fixed. Perhaps they have read too many articles about how good they were supposed to be.
