0:00 - Remember when we called him "Baby Face" Fowler? No?
0:15 - "Kindred programs..." I can't tell you how many emails I received from Texas A&M fans who wanted Virginia Tech to come to the SEC with them, and be their divisional rival. After Maryland left for the Big Ten, one followed up with me to say, "you missed your chance."
Well folks, it looks like 24 is coming back for a limited run season. I am freakin pumped, I need some Jack Bauer back in my life. Naturally, the question everybody is wondering is if the VT coaching staff was cast for 24, who would they play? I offer my humble suggestions below. Feel free to let me know what you think.
Dr.Saturday, a popular college football blog, released the Vegas odds on week one match-ups. How'd we stack up to Bama? According to the experts, we're 22 point underdogs. If that doesn't motivate the boys, I don't know what will. In the popular words of Rodney Dangerfield, "I\We get no respect!" The national perception of our program (at the moment) should add fuel to the fire...let's go get 'em birds!
We all know about Jonathan McG and Brandon Facyson. But who else impressed you this spring? On the other hand, who were the biggest disappointments?
Riser: Devin VanDyke. He made plays all spring. He had a few highlights in the spring game, including stuffing Trey Edmunds in a goal line situation, and later blowing up Michael Holmes behind the line of scrimmag in the 2nd half. He has that ability to knife through the A-gap - - a common characteristics of our best Mikes including Vince Hall and Jack Tyler. Although they are not the fastest guys on the field, they all had a very quick first step, could diagnose the play in a hurry, and spent alot of time behind the line of scrimmage.

Spring football is over. We'll spend the rest of this week obsessing over the details of the spring game and practice...but then what? NBA playoffs? Baseball? Golf? ...seriously...we all know those aren't drinking sports.
How about a series of doctored photos showing The Frankinator with different hair styles (like we did with the coaching hair mash-ups a while back). Here's a few examples: Frank with Bieber's "old" do. Frank with Donald Trump's signature do. Frank with Ace Ventura's...etc.
Just the idea guy (i.e. have no knowledge of photoshop or whatever you guys use on your internet machines).
Most of the highlights from the April 17th mini-scrimmage come from Logan working out of the shotgun. I'll leave O-Line play review to the experts, but they seemed like they did a good job in pass protection.

Editor's Note: Bumped to the front because I love this show (haven't read the books) and it's an amazing effort by Wartooh.
Season Three of Game of Thrones is well underway and the Virginia Tech Spring Game is this Saturday. Let's stretch some analogies! As the ACC expands its ranks to 14 teams this season, we find more than a few parallels.
