Like everyone else, we are struck numb by the events at Virginia Tech on Monday, April 16th, 2007. The magnitude of this tragedy is currently beyond our comprehension. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of those slain at Virginia Tech, and we grieve along with everyone else who treasures this university.
At the time of this writing, it is unknown if Virginia Tech is going to hold their spring football game as planned this coming Saturday, April 21st. Our editorial policy in the coming days will be to take our lead from the Virginia Tech athletics department. If they continue football practices and hold the game Saturday, we will provide pre-game and post-game coverage. If they decide to cancel or postpone the game, we will adjust our plans accordingly.
Though we are in the business of providing coverage of Virginia Tech football, basketball, and recruiting, we understand at times like this that athletics are the last thing on anyone’s mind. Our message boards will remain open for discussion and information sharing. We will resume posting content when events dictate that it is appropriate.
