Much like Brent Pry we've had a change of scenery at the JC Show, but now we're more than ready for football season. It all starts Friday at Old Dominion but first take a behind the scenes look at how we create the show.

Gripping stuff there. This week on the show we take a look back to one of the most successful road openers in recent memory. There's also an interesting element to this new studio that may provide some future entertainment.

Come for the ODU preview, stay for the oddities.

In the words of the great Frank Reynolds, "I don't know how many years on this Earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it."


My Dad graduated from Tech in 1981 and I’ve been attending Virginia Tech sporting events since I first moved to Blacksburg in 1988. I myself graduated in 2008 with a Communication degree. During my time as a student I was the Sports Director for WUVT and helped establish and run Planet Blacksburg, an independent student-run news website. I’ve since written for numerous publications including SBNation, Inside The ACC, and Sports Illustrated's AllHokies. Currently, I host The Justin Cates Show in addition to other contributions here at Sons of Saturday and various other sites as the need arises. I now live in a fortified compound in upstate New York with my wife and numerous animals. The smell of popcorn makes me think of Cassell.
