I took the boys camping this weekend with Scouts. When I came home, my wife had put up my Lane Stadium fathead on my office wall. Now I can spend some time every day with 66,000 of my closest friends. Thanks Nell.
My view of the game last night. It was a tough loss, but proud of how the team came together and played their hearts out. Anyone that says this team didn’t have any heart last night doesn’t know what they’re talking about.
I was on the sideline and the attitude and energy were unlike anything I’ve felt this season. These guys had a huge chip on their collective shoulder and gave Florida State all they could handle and then some.

I know the odds are against us tonight. We’re huge underdogs. The team is having a bad year. Fans are foaming at the mouth. Coaches are under fire. Players are trying to figure out what’s gone wrong. There is nothing we’ve seen this year that says we have a chance in hell of winning this game tonight against. No. 8 Florida State.
But we have Land Stadium and the Hokie Nation. Maybe, just maybe, the cold air, a raucous crowd, and a pissed off Virginia Tech team can somehow pull everything together for this game and send the Noles home with a loss. Anything is possible.
