This week I propose a novel and ludicrous solution to the issues the Hokies have had generating yards on the ground. Will the coaches take me up on these free ideas? Almost certainly. Just you watch.

In the meantime enjoy the games and be mindful of the weather no matter where you are. I'm under a frost advisory while many in the south are under severe watches of all kinds. It's a busy time to be a meteorologist or a football watcher.


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.
