Hokie fans, the sky is not falling this week in Blacksburg. Our Virginia Tech Hokies managed to get a solid victory last Saturday over a ranked Duke team. The Hokies needed a solid performance to right the sinking ship that was our season, and a solid victory is what they got. Duke came into the game with a strong grasp on the ACC Coastal division but thanks to the Hokies, that grasp has been weakened.
I thought the Hokies played within themselves and didn’t necessarily play a stellar game but played a game where they put themselves in position to win. The Hokies played through adversity all game.
The most adverse part came with the loss of stud running back Marshawn Williams, who is lost for the season with a torn ACL. As always, the Hokies had some good parts but this win had some definite bad parts, and some very ugly parts.
