Why The Spring Game Matters

The Spring Game weekend matters. It always has.

But in recent years, Virginia Tech fans have forgotten that. It isn't necessarily our fault either. In 2020, the events of the Spring Game weekend were brought to a screeching halt after a global pandemic had everyone quarantining in their homes. The following year, COVID-19 was still at large, and a vaccine had just become widespread. Unfortunately, the athletic department still didn't find it safe for fans to gather inside of Lane Stadium last year.

And that was tough. It was tough because we saw other football programs still having their spring games. We can't go back and change that the past two years didn't happen, but what we can do is look at how special this year's Spring Game weekend was, and make sure it happens on this level every year until the end of time.

First off, Pat, Billy Ray, Davon Morgan and myself all have to thank everyone who came out to the first annual Celebrity Spring Jam on Friday evening. Oh, and we promise it's only going to get bigger and better. To the sponsors of the event, we appreciate you and can't wait to work together soon.

In this episode, we discuss how every event surrounding the Spring Game, whether it be the Monogram Golf Club Tournament or the Edmunds' cocktail reception in the Sanghani Lounge, went absolutely fantastic. And while there was no tailgating allowed on Center Street, Hokie fans found plenty of ways to enjoy themselves in the parking lots surrounding Lane Stadium.

The Spring Game itself was a lot of fun. A new energy surrounds the program, and Coach Brent Pry just GETS it. I think it goes without saying that Virginia Tech has something to be excited about in their football team again.

To all of the alumni who were back in town for the first time in a long time, it was great to see you. Welcome to the Brent Pry era of football at Virginia Tech. Go Hokies!
