Making a pit stop around Greenville, South Carolina, to post this podcast. We'll be in lovely Atlanta shortly.
It's a screwy week, with the Thursday night game, so we're doing things a little bit out of order. And my apologies, but I'm not going to be able to fit a live chat in this week. I'm posting this very extensive Q&A with Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal Constitution on the road to Atlanta. We should have a podcast up for you a little bit later today.
It's a condensed week, so all of our interview sessions came fast and furious on Monday. Here's what I wrote yesterday in case you missed any of it: -- Bud Foster expressed his interest in the Hokies' head coaching job, saying, "I don’t think this program needs a culture change.'
Frank Beamer's final game at Lane Stadium will be a nooner. The ACC announced Virginia Tech and North Carolina will meet in Blacksburg on Nov. 21 at the fan base's most-despised time. Television is to be determined. It could be on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU. That'll be announced in the next six days.
There have been three occasions prior to this year since Virginia Tech's bowl streak started in 1993 that the team has started 2-2.
If you missed any of our coverage from Virginia Tech's 27-24 loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday, you can get to it here: -- My game story about the Hokies' cavalcade of mistakes that led to the loss -- McFarling's column: Tech's 'DBU' not living up to its nickname -- A post-game wrap with more notes and quotes Now for some day-after thoughts:
It was another big letdown in Lane Stadium on Saturday, something that's becoming a regular occurrence.
BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech are shaping up to have another close finish. The Hokies entered halftime Saturday at Lane Stadium with a 16-10 lead, answering a Georgia Tech touchdown in the final minute of the half with a two-minute drill and field goal by Joey Slye.
So this happened today again at Virginia Tech. You would have thought they might have employed extra security around the "T" after Georgia Tech's last visit. On the weather front, it's a lovely day out here at Lane Stadium. Perfect football weather. It'll be regular jerseys for the Hokies today too. Follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
Here's a breakdown of the matchups this week. If you missed the injury report from yesterday -- a pretty good one for the Hokies, all things considered -- here it is. Follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech
