A loss always brings out the excitement online and last week's barn burner against North Carolina was no exception. The peanut gallery was out in such force that we had a to do a special report on The Justin Cates Show to determine if the Sons of Saturday are in fact super biased.

Carolina proved they're a strong contender to challenge Clemson in the ACC, and the Hokies proved they can score in bunches. There are questions on defense however after surrendering, really all of the points and yards to the Tar Heels.

A return home just as the leaves take on Tech colors may well be just what's needed.

Can the Hokies right the ship at home against Boston College? Will Miami lay an egg? Are the Sons just a bunch of homers? Watch the show to find out.


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.
