We've made an effort to upgrade the overall production values on the show this year. Sometimes it's not terribly apparent, but this week I think it is. With the self-congratulations out of the way we've got a fun show complete with a strange guest spot to update us on Urban Meyer and of course game picks.

And no the special guest is not Tre Turner, I just really love that photo from the great Zach Lantz.

Additionally, there's a lot of yelling and wild gesturing. It's the kind of thing that makes you wonder, "Why though?"

Take a gander at this week's Justin Cates Show and ruminate on some existential wisdom from coach Saban below. Have a great weekend and enjoy the games!


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.
