It all began with the Exumtaur.
The infamous combination was the first instance of netherworld identities attached to this group of defenders that arguably are some of the most charismatic players we’ve seen take the field in the orange and maroon. I was thinking about various other ways to brand the defense this year, when it hit me: what are the other mythological creatures within Bud Foster’s lunch pail Pandora’s Box? I did some half-assed research on a sketchy website, and with help from www.gods-and-monsters.com (created by a guy named Mike who I’m willing to bet has an affinity for dreamcatchers) I came up with a few new mythological associations.

Has anyone heard anything about Jaylen Bradshaw committing to the good guys? Just got a message from Team Stream...
3* QB Mason Rudolph from SC is announcing tomorrow at noon between VT, LSU, and OK State. He visited Blacksburg this past weekend. It's also worth noting that David Cornwell and Jacob Park visited Alabama this past weekend to try and earn "commitable offers" from Nick Saban.
I believe that Mason will pick the Hokies tomorrow. Although he doesn't have the "star" power that Cornwell and Park might have, he certainly is a very good prospect - - check out his junior highlights above.
I really just needed to know if Im the only one that feels Tyrod Taylor deserves to have his name and number on one of those flags above the student section honoring past Hokie greats.
I stumbled on this GameDay segment on The Untouchables while sifting through HokieTapes' massive film collection.
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."
0:39 - R. C. Slocum. That's all.
He was released by the Giants and signed by the Jets....what a downgrade. Im pretty sure former Tech receiver David Clowney played for the Jets.
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.
Frank Beamer is Bill Buchanan
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!
Is this legit?
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.
