  • Offense is better, thanks to Evans

  • Top five athletes to remember

    1. Dyrell Roberts, Smithfield He was a marked man from the start, but defenses still couldn't bring him down. All Roberts did was rush for 2,256 yards, pass for 257 yards, catch passes for 148 yards and score 38 touchdowns in 10 games. Oh, he had a 40-...
  • The breakdown

    The breakdown Offense With eight starters back, improved efficiency should be in the Hokies' future, which is good news. Last season, Tech averaged 4.1 yards per carry on first down plays (more yards per carry than on any other down), but it...
  • Tech's loss capped a woeful week for the ACC

    Virginia Tech was the ACC's last hope Saturday. But the Hokies' anemic offense – sound familiar? -- finally caused their demise against No. 5 Alabama. The result: A 34-24 season-opening loss at the earplugs-recommended Georgia Dome and the most...

    Tide rolls in fourth quarter, overcomes Va. Tech 34-24

    Hokies say communication was their main breakdown
    By the time Virginia Tech gets back on the practice field this week in Blacksburg, the list of issues to address coming out of Saturday night's 34-24 loss to No. 5 Alabama will be lengthy. Free safety Kam Chancellor might have his own list of concerns to...

    Sept. 9, 2009: Al Groh's job teetering at Virginia
    If past is prelude, the University of Virginia should brace for a miserable football season. And we all know what that would mean. Summon the hangman for the head man. Not to give Al Groh the bum's rush a mere one game into his ninth season as coach. He...
  • Smithfield's Dyrell Roberts shows big-play ability

    Maybe the least surprised person on the field Saturday night after his 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in Virginia Tech's 34-24 loss against Alabama was Dyrell Roberts. His time on the field at Smithfield High made him comfortable in that role. As...

    Inside the BRD: A look at Smithfield's football team
    After the glass of cold water that was our early, early, power poll - especially for the Poquoson folks - we'll take a very brief look over the next couple of weeks at each of the 10 Bay Rivers teams leading into the opening day of practice on Aug. 2....

    ACC All Access: Hush-hush Tech mini-scrimmage finishes Wednesday's spring practice
    Unless Tech's sports information department was lying to the small gathering of reporters that showed up for post-practice interviews today (and I don't think for one second there was any fibbing going on), the Hokies held a mini-scrimmage to close out...
  • Bowl breakdown

    Offense It all starts with the running game for both teams, as Tech's Ryan Williams (1,538 yards rushing) and Tennessee's Montario Hardesty (1,306 yards) will draw much of the defensive attention. In the last nine games, Tennessee quarterback Jonathan...
