Hokies vs. Mountaineers at FedExField in 2017

Raise your hand if you were in Lane and went crazy for this blocked kick / Vincent Fuller touchdown.

Grainey YouTube screengrab. This play should be crystal clear in everyone's memory though.

This afternoon Virginia Tech announced a neutral site game against West Virginia at FedExField in 2017. Mitch Vingle of The Charleston Gazette reported the possibility of a matchup back in April.

The two teams played every year from 1973 until 2005. The Mountaineers edged the Hokies during that time, 17-16, but the Hokies won 6 of the final 8 meetings, including the past two, and have been in possession of The Black Diamond Trophy ever since. It's unclear if the trophy will be up for grabs in the 2017 contest.

"It is an exciting matchup for both schools' fans to look forward to," Virginia Tech Athletic Director Whit Babcock said in a release. "I appreciate the work of Coach Beamer and Associate AD John Ballein in arranging this extremely strong non-conference matchup. Not only will the game renew a passionate rivalry, it will also be played at a site that is centered in a major alumni base for both schools."

"West Virginia University had a great experience at FedExField in 2012, and we are looking forward to playing there again against Virginia Tech," said Oliver Luck, WVU Director of Athletics, in a release. "Not only do our players enjoy playing in NFL stadiums, West Virginia has a lot of alumni living in the Washington, D.C. metro area and playing at a great venue like FedExField gives our fans a road game that is in close proximity. West Virginia and Virginia Tech have had a great historical rivalry over the years, and it's great that the two schools can renew the series, starting in Washington, D.C. in 2017, and then two games in 2021 and 2022."

Tech is scheduled to travel to Morgantown in 2021, and host the 'Eers in 2022. Tech will play 8 ACC games and host Delaware, Old Dominion, and travel to East Carolina in 2017.

Well, if there's any time to reverse our losing streak at FedEx Field, I suppose it will be against the Cousins.

Landover, MD will scare most WVU fans into Good behavior.
I remember the faces of Boise fans driving through NE late night.
They looked just a little nervous. And they were well behaved fans.

I live in NE too, but I consider it safer than NW. More muggings and crimes happen over in those more affluent areas. Although, my hoods are on the come up, and one was even considered more pricey than Cleveland Park.

Looks like our uniforms from the last time we played at FedEx

Id rather beat them at FedExField than Lane Stadium or MorganTown. Cant Wait.

Why?

Just curious.

Its a neutral site. Fans will have no excuses for losing.

^^ This ^^

I have zero desire to play WVU again. Even 12 years after the last game, the way they treated our fans and players, it still seems too soon.

How quickly we forget how they threw batteries, bags of urine, metal trash cans, etc at VT fans in the stands, and then in unison chanted numerous racial slurs at our players the last time we played. And its not like the school did anything to curtail their behavior, they fucking embraced it.

Went to watch a VT WVU game in Morganhole. They held up t-shirts infront of me so I couldn't see. Spit in my nachos, and called me everything under the sun.

Went to a VT WVU game in blacksburgh when Fuller returned a blocked kick all the way to beat them... We rushed the field and their fans still threw bottles at us and had to be escorted out of the stadium... They were VISITORS!!!

Let them ROT as the new ragdoll for Baylor.

I went to the WVU game in 03(?) in Morgantown. Worst fans, stadium personnel, and POLICE I have ever had to deal with. As we were leaving, we were telling the VT team that we were still with them and will get Miami next week (which we did in the best game VT ever won). As the bus is about the leave, Frank comes out of the tunnel and boards. A drunk WVU fan walks on the bus behind him to insult him, VT, and everyone else. Cops stood there for way to long before 'asking' him to leave the bus. What a fucking shithole that place is. Which is a shame, because the state of West Virginia is actually a picturesque place.

Which wallet is yours?

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

Thank you for acknowledging that the school does not equal the state. I find that sometimes my fellow VT fans don't know where to draw the line when insulting the school and it turns into insulting the whole state, from which I'm proud to say I originated.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

That sums it up pretty well for me, too, except to remind all of the behavior directed towards any female VT fans, band members, cheerleaders, etc. I'd prefer never playing WV again in any sport ever, because they proved they don't deserve to be graced by our presence. That's my feeling, but I expected this to occur, so I'm not at all surprised. I'll be watching from my patio. With no concern of flaming furniture or assault.

Hell no. Beating them in Lane is oh-so-sweet. Then the Gold and Blue fans crawl back down whatever drain they crawled out of. Its like when you used to bring a girl back to your place and then the next morning hint at how much stuff you need to do that day; translation: you've been f**ked, now leave

Which wallet is yours?

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

I believe that drain they crawl out of is called "Morgantown." We don't really know for certain if it's still called that because no opposing fans are interested in visiting.

So we get to beat WVU AND not deal with Morgantown??

Ehh, that's fine. I don't have the hate I once did.

But, a quick look at the home OOC schedule coming up:
14: W&M, ECU, WMU
15: Ohio St, Furman
16: Liberty, ECU
17: Delaware, ODU
18: W&M, ECU
19: Charlotte, ODU
20: Liberty, ECU....and finally!....Wisconsin

In 21, we have Michigan...in 22, we have PSU and WVU and in 23 we have Purdue

At some point in there, Notre Dame will play in Lane Stadium. At one point it was rumored to be 2018, but most of those games have now been finalized and no word on ND at VT.

So, Whit Babcock, assess the home schedule. And don't blame us when there are empty seats for Delaware and Charlotte.

I will fill those seats. I love blowouts. Less stress.

Blowouts... by a Frank Beamer squad?

I admire your optimism.

No amount of points scored against the boo-hoos is considered a blow-out. It just the right thing to do.

It couldn't of been fun because we didn't play JMU in 2009.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

I recall in 1999 we beat Syracuse 62-0. And last year the Miami game definitely had a blowout feel.

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

That Cuse game is still my favorite blowout since I became a Hokie in 1998. It was supposed to the teams first real test. They destroyed them. It was a needed blowout considering McNabb beat us the year before thanks to a dumb penalty.

You can't spell 'Weak OOC Schedule' without ECU and ODU

Well ECU is going to the American so they're... still gonna be bad

I'll see myself out.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

This must be a cheap way to demo Fedex so Snyder can build a new one.

But seriously, I know alot of people hate Fedex but I had tons of fun for USC 04' and Boise St 10' regardless of the outcome and Fedex problems

Maybe I-66/I-495/I-395/I-95/US Rt 1 will cause the WVU fans on giving up on finding FedEx since those roads offer no such directions as "Take a left at the fork in the road by the old couch that Billy Jo lit on fire 5 years ago and then the cat came and peed on it"

"And it is caught, it is caught for a touchdown"

Went to visit that Landmark on my way through WV a while back. Was better than I expected. Still needed more cat pee to mask the chewing tobacco spit.

I hear it's on hallowed ground - are we talking about the same landmark - you know the one right down from the Hall of Stuffed Roadkill Animals?

I believe it was called "Morgantown Hall of Critters and Animal Bits"

I do not understand why the athletic administration desires or feels the need to schedule ECU for the next 60 years ! Any other directional school , playing ECU is a non win situation for Tech . If we win ( people say big deal you beat ECU) , if we lose then you never hear the end of it. Lose , Lose, situation.

georgebd

Honestly every big school schedules so-called cup cake games. Most schools tend to schedule against smaller In state schools for different reasons. It's an instate subsidy to another VA university; and I like the fact were playing ODU. It gives us a chance to showcase our school in the "757" Tidewater Region. The high schools there push their players to UVA. Maybe if they saw us on a regular basis ( every 2-3 years ) They could embrace Tech as the true powerhouse over weakass UVA. I have no idea why ECU is on schedule all the time, but on average were clearly not going to win Carolina recruits from 4 other ACC schools positioned in Carolina area. Playing ODU could give us a leg up over UVA.....

For purely selfish reasons, I was really hoping that they'd have the game at RFK. The distance from my house to RFK is exactly the same as the commuter lots to Lane. I could tailgate at my house and then walk to the game.

Too civilized of a location for the WVU hoarde

Ive said it before, and I'll say it again. FedEx Field is where Hokie dreams go to die...

Carry Me Back

so for shits and giggles I checked out a wvu fan site to see what they have to say:
COUSINS

I must say that comments are quite pleasant. Though I find the first one by mtngreek highly ironic as it mentions hearing about it from his cousins...

I for one am all for kicking in the last remaining teeth of the cousins. Along with GT I would say it is the team I enjoy beating most, that isn't named LOLUVA.

Can we get some west coast school to come to FedEx? I really enjoyed (the first half) of that USC game. Playing cross country teams is awesome.

And put the Black Diamond Trophy on the line; what the hell is it for if not to play between these two specific school? Come on Whit, don't be scrrrrd.

Which wallet is yours?

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

not sure that's up to us...didn't the company that sponsored it take it back when the series ended? if so, it would certainly be worth a phone call...

I don't have to take this abuse from you, I've got hundreds of people dying to abuse me.

We don't have it anymore, I can't give you documentation that they demanded it back, but even after we offered to pay for it's value the company (a West Virginia company) they wanted it back

That's pretty funny. Must be WVU fan owned.

"Have you ever tried simply turning off the TV, sitting down with your children, and hitting them?"

may have been, but old management team is gone. i wonder if they took the trophy with them or left it in a closet somewhere...

@HaydenDubya

Is "we" VT or Rish Equipment? There is that Rish dealer right off 81 just north of Blacksburg so maybe they aren't all Cousins?

I'm pretty certain that, though the return was requested, we 'just never got around to it'. After a few months, it slid out of folks minds. I could be mistaken, but I am almost certain that we still have it, we just don't display it.

VT still has it, but its just chillin in a closet though

"Go Hokies!" - Thomas Jefferson

cool (but sad, if i'm being honest). why not display it? while it may not be the most prestigious trophy, it's certainly one of the most badass looking ones out there...WAY better than the new playoff trophy!

He was a beast on the field, even without pads he is a scary looking dude. Damn.

Which wallet is yours?

The one that says "Bad Motherfucker"

I met him once while I was a student. Kid is friendly as hell, too.

DT is extremely polite, well grounded, all the things you could hope for from an athlete or celebrity. His parents did an outstanding job of instilling that in him, and he did an outstanding job in growing into a stellar man in all phases of life. He really, REALLY, is to be admired. As good of an exemplar for Hokies as we have.

I have said it before and will say it again - Darryl Tapp is one of my all-time favorite Hokies, largely based just on the way he played. He would level you with a massive hit, but then offer you a hand up when the play was over. I always liked seeing that. He played the game the right way.

I would prefer feeling MUCH more comfortable in our victory before rubbing it in the faces of the rabid dog element of the goldnblue.

That was my understanding. I've not seen it personally, but... Let's just say that it 'could be' in the 24060. Also, probably, the less said the better, when it comes to bitter rivalries.

I'll admit, Im too chicken to call them, but someone really needs to contact Rish to ask them what happened to the trophy and let us know what they said. Im extremely curious...

Carry Me Back

I'd do it, but I'm too busy working hard... and reading TKP.

"Have you ever tried simply turning off the TV, sitting down with your children, and hitting them?"

sounds like a job for one of our beloved beat writers...could do a whole piece on the trophy from its introduction until now and into the future...

Got sidetracked getting into some comments: I was at this game. And that play was AWEEEESOME! Maybe even cemented our line of Fullers to come.

As far as playing WVU at FedEx...

Whatever.

Anywhere, anytime, any place. Bitches.

Can't wait.

Wonder if that will be our first game with a new head coach? Personally I hope CFB is still on the whistle then. But his contract runs out 2016 and he supposedly said to some big donors after the last wvu series that we would never play them again. Is this foreshadowing?

We put the K in Kwality

I mean, who knows? I don't think it's worth the discussion as not even Frank himself really knows what will happen

Why does VT always play the AWAY Game first when we have a Home and Home with another team?

Pour some Beer on it

That was always Weaver's negotiating strategy - start with a stance of weakness, then accept virtually whatever crumbs are tossed your way. Whit is merely filling in a neutral game in advance of a home/home that Weaver had already agreed to playing. I think you'll see in the future that we actually strengthen our position in negotiating under Whit.

For what it's worth, we do play PSU in Blacksburg before going to State College... (but yes I've wondered the same)

I think they took it down but I remember UVA had a funnier one about trying to get their students to come back to campus early from Thanksgiving break for the VT game.

screw WVU, their fans, and that venue. i'll never go to a WVU/VT game again, regardless of where it's played. for the right matchup, i may suck it up and deal with FedEx but definitely not for a game that would result in me getting spit on.

Agree, WVU & their uncivilized fans can rot in hell. They should be banned from NCAA,no school should schedule them. Let them enjoy the trips to Kansas , there is a reason no conference within 1000 miles would take them.
