NCAA Tournament Preview

The Hokies are going dancing, again! For the third straight season, coach Buzz Williams has Virginia Tech in the NCAA Tournament. In this episode, Robbie and Pete take an in-depth look at Tech's seeding and break down the opening round matchup vs. St. Louis. The path to the sweet 16 is more favorable than it's ever been. Let's hope VT can get there this time.


Buzzketball / Recruiting Class / 2019 Projections

This is a packed episode. Starting with basketball, the guys discuss life without Justin Robinson, break down the remaining schedule, and lay out Tech's tournament seed possibilities. When National Signing Day was all said and done, the Hokies had a nice haul; Robbie and Pete explain why they're excited about the future of the offensive and defensive lines. Finally, the S&P+ projections for 2019 are out. With VT checking in at no. 30, the pressure is on Fuente to get this team to nine or...


Transfer Talk with Andy Bitter

The rash of recent transfer announcements has Tech football fans spooked. Like many others, Robbie and Pete have a lot of questions. What's going on inside the program? Is there some underlying issue with the coaching staff? Are these transfers really that big of a deal? Better than asking each other, the guys turned to Andy Bitter of The Athletic in search of answers. Towards the end of the episode, Buzzketball is praised for their historic performance against Syracuse, and the upcoming...


Offseason News / Buzzketball / Bowl Recap

It's finally over. A grueling season for Hokie fans, complete some with some high highs (FSU, UVA) and some very low lows (GT, Pitt), mercifully, has come to an end. In this episode, Robbie and Pete, no worse for the wear, discuss all the latest news from in and around the program before moving on to some much deserved basketball coverage. To say that the guys are excited about next week's matchup vs. UVA would be an massive understatement. And if you thought you were going to get out of...


Recruiting / Bowl Preview with Matej Sis

Signed, sealed, and soon to be delivered. On the first night of the early signing period, Matej Sis, writer and insider for 247Sports and VT Scoop, joined the guys to break down the Hokies' 2019 recruiting class. Despite the smaller size of this year's class, the coaching staff did a good job of addressing needs while also bringing in some top talent. In the second half of this episode, Robbie and Pete make sure to give you a full Military Bowl preview. Let's hope Tech can pull off the win...


Hokies Go Bowling!

After struggling most of the season, Virginia Tech earned a Bowl bid with their convincing win over Marshall. The guys recap the offensive highlights, while touching on the less than impressive second half. The Hokies will now play Cincinnati in the Military Bowl, a familiar matchup as Tech beat the Bearcats in Annapolis just four years ago. 26 straight Bowl appearances, simply amazing; Robbie and Pete are so happy this tumultuous season had happy ending.


UVA Recap / Marshall Preview

15 IN A ROW! Yes, that's right, VT beat UVA for the 15th straight year in an overtime thriller. Robbie and Pete recap the wild affair and revel in the much-needed victory. With the win, Marshall is up next and the Bowl streak is on the line. Will the Hokies show the same fight we just saw against Hoos? They'll need another monster effort to beat this tough defensive squad. For what it's worth, the guys think they have it in them. Let's go, Hokies!


Miami Recap / UVA Preview

IT'S HATE WEEK! The guys recap the tough loss to Miami, but, more importantly, talk about the matchup with rival Virginia. A win keeps the streak alive and would mean one more game; a loss would put an end to a brutal season. Pete and Robbie have mentally prepared themselves for the worst, but are hoping for a big surprise on Black Friday. Happy Thanksgiving, listeners!


Pitt Recap / Miami Preview

How low can you go? The Hokies found new levels of ineptitude in a demoralizing 52-22 loss to Pitt. Robbie and Pete's depression turns to exasperation in this one, as they attempt to recap what the hell happened. The guys then transition to acceptance, expressing that beating anyone right now, let alone a team with Miami's defense, is an extremely tall task. The Bowl streak is just about out of reach; does VT have anything left in the tank? We'll find out.


BC Recap / Pitt Preview

O... no. The offense disappeared in a disappointing loss to Boston College. Addazio did Robbie dirty as his veteran team put a hurtin' on the Hokies in the second half. The guys recap the game before diving into the commentary on play-calling. There was plenty to be angry about, but the fire shown by the defense was certainly a pleasant surprise; a similar effort will be necessary to slow down Pitt's power running game. The Coastal is still out there for the taking, can VT go on a run here...


GT Recap / BC Preview

Techmo Bowl blowout. Georgia Tech ran roughshod over the Hokies, putting up video game numbers in a game that was difficult to watch. Robbie and Pete begrudgingly recap the defensive disaster, attempting to find a reason for why it went so wrong. The road ahead isn't getting any easier either; Steve Addazio is bringing his best BC team in years to Blacksburg this weekend. If we don't see something from Bud Foster's group on Saturday, the Hokies' bowl streak could be in serious jeopardy in...


Georgia Tech Preview

Rest, no relaxation. The Hokies were off this past weekend, but Bud Foster and the young defense were hard at work preparing for Georgia Tech's triple option offense. The CPJ/Foster chess-match is always fascinating, but how Fuente plans to exploit a GT defense with a lot of its own holes is just important. With a perfect record in the ACC on the line, and a rowdy Lane Stadium behind them, can VT finally get over the Techmo Bowl hump? Or will the Yellow Jackets win for the third year in a...


UNC Recap

A win is a win. After a sloppy game, and a crazy finish, the Hokies head into the bye week at 4-2 and 3-0 in the ACC. Pete and Robbie recap just how lucky VT was to get the W against UNC, and enjoy some pumpkin beers in the process. The bye comes at a good time, as this team certainly needs to get some things figured out before the Coastal race really gets going. Enjoy the week off, it should be a wild second half of the season.


ND Recap / UNC Preview with Don V

That one hurt. Unfortunately, the Hokies have now contributed to the "Notre Dame is going to the playoff" narrative. Don V, of the Don V Fridays podcast, helps the guys recap the dismal showing against the Irish before previewing UNC. The levity brought by Don in this episode was certainly welcome after a tough week on the field. With that said, VT still has plenty to play for; let's hope the team comes out angry and pulls off the win down in Chapel Hill.


Duke Recap / Notre Dame Preview

That's how you respond. The Hokies bounced back in a big way with a definitive victory over Duke. Robbie and Pete recap the all the action from Durham before getting you ready for the gigantic contest vs. Notre Dame. Lane will certainly be jumping as Tech welcomes the no. 6, undefeated Fighting Irish to Blacksburg. There's a lot on the line for the Domers; their manageable path to the playoff has been at the forefront of the national conversation since their win over Stanford. However, the...


ODU Recap / Duke Preview

That sound you hear is the Hokies crashing back down to earth. After an impressive start to the season, Tech laid an historic egg, losing to Old Dominion 35-49. Pete and Robbie recap what went wrong and debate where the loss ranks among some of the Hokies' worst. Once the ODU game is put to bed, the guys turn the page to Duke. Will Fuente and the boys be able to pick up the pieces and get a win down in Durham? It won't be an easy task, but the bounce back spot has treated the Hokies well...


ODU Preview

VT football, how we've missed you. After an unexpected bye week, the Hokies should be recharged heading into their game against Old Dominion. Pete and Robbie recap all the college football action from last weekend before previewing the historic trip to Norfolk. The stadium will be small, but the crowd should be rowdy. Don't be surprised if ODU hangs for a quarter or two, but, hopefully, Tech will flex its muscles as the game progresses. Duke and ND loom, but taking care of business should be...


W&M Recap / ECU Canceled

Well that was fun. Virginia Tech took William & Mary behind the woodshed on Saturday. Robbie and Pete recap the offensive explosion and praise a great game overall despite some mistakes on D. Unfortunately, next week's matchup vs. ECU has been canceled due to hurricane Florence. The guys try to fill the hole in their hearts with some extra picks against the spread. Everyone, please, stay safe and dry this weekend.


FSU Recap / W&M Preview

1-0! The Hokies went into Tallahassee and shocked the college football world on Monday night. The offense started off hot, the defense dominated throughout, and our special teams paid tribute to Frank Beamer with a game-changing play. It was quite a night. Robbie and Pete recap all the action, and discuss Bud Foster's legendary impact on our program. Before moving on to William & Mary, the guys stress the importance managing expectations over the next month. Stick around for ATS picks at the...


FSU Preview with Andy Bitter

Andy Bitter from The Athletic joins the guys to help preview the opener against Florida State. Andy's insight on media access, the running game, and our young defense provides the backdrop for a matchup full of unknowns. As you would expect, Pete and Robbie share their reasons for optimism, despite a talent discrepancy, and finish the pod with their first picks segment of the year. College football season is finally here. Let's go, Hokies!
