About TechSideline.com

TechSideline.com has covered Virginia Tech football since 1996. For past schedules and past coverage, please see our Past VT Football Seasons page.

TechSideline.com’s mission is simple: we provide news, coverage and commentary on Virginia Tech athletics. We are an independent publication, not affiliated with the university or its athletic programs. We provide a unique perspective that appeals to the large and growing fan base of Virginia Tech athletics. TechSideline.com operates as a fully-staffed, full-time business. TechSideline.com is not a “hobby” site or a “blog” — it’s a serious endeavor, dedicated to bringing great coverage and insight to our readers.

TechSideline was launched on March 12, 1996 by 1987 Tech graduate (BSEE) Will Stewart as a small, personal web page. In 1997, the site evolved into HokieCentral.com, and in August of 1999, joined the SportsWar network of college sports web sites. In November of 2000, the site changed names to TechSideline.com, or TSL.

Over the years, TSL grew into what you see before you: a full-time Virginia Tech sports web site, complete with news, game analysis, links, special features, and the ubiquitous message boards.
