    Virginia Tech's Dyrell Roberts still working his way back
    Sitting on his couch at home over the holidays, Virginia Tech's Dyrell Roberts was relegated to a football role he hoped he'd never have to play — armchair quarterback. He had no choice. Every time he stood up, he couldn't support himself...
  • 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...
  • Tide rolls in fourth quarter, overcomes Va. Tech 34-24

    Tide rolls in fourth quarter, overcomes Va. Tech 34-24
    For three quarters, it was what everybody expected -- Virginia Tech and Alabama absorbing blows and delivering counterpunches until one team couldn't stand anymore. Tech was the team with the glass jaw in the fourth quarter. Alabama changed the...
  • Hokies say communication was their main breakdown

    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

    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...
  • Offense pours it on its critics

    Offense pours it on its critics
    The last time Virginia Tech piled up more than 550 yards of offense in a game, Hokies offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring was a broken man — tears streaming down his face, crouching in a corner outside the visitors' locker room of the Carrier...
  • MAKE OR BREAK

    MAKE  OR BREAK
    They lost to Alabama and waxed Marshall. What else to expect from Virginia Tech's football team? Alabama's defense is ruder than Kanye West, and Marshall hasn't mattered since Byron Leftwich exited in 2002. Plus, the Hokies lost their most reliable...
  • Hokies' miracle stuns Nebraska

    Tyrod Taylor dodged several defenders and then rifled an 11-yard touchdown pass to Dyrell Roberts with 21 seconds left, rallying No. 13 Virginia Tech over No. 19 Nebraska 16-15 Saturday. Taylor, known for his running much more than his passing, completed...
  • Two sandlot plays save inept Hokies offense

    Virginia Tech was 88 yards from the winning touchdown. The Hokies had gained 58 yards on their previous six possessions. Combined! Can you say "dead team walking"? Virginia Tech was 11 yards from the winning touchdown, and Tyrod Taylor was throwing...
  • Pass play is Tech's longest in years

    The 81-yard, Tyrod Taylor-to-Danny Coale connection that set up Virginia Tech's winning touchdown was the Hokies' longest pass play since Bryan Randall completed two 87-yarders against Syracuse in 2002. Avoiding ignominy Until Taylor's 11-yard...
