  1. Will I am like you. When I got to a game it is very serious. I get very wrapped up in the game and I hate to see us play poorly. I have wished I could be one of those who are just having a good time watching the Hokies but it is like a job to me. It is like I am a coach who had to sit in the stands. I am anxious, and frustrated unless we are winning. And if we are behind the last thing I want is to be n the dang Jumbotron. I will never understand fans that can have fun while we are getting beat. That will never be fun to me.

  3. Will, I too share your sentiment about the mindless racket and excessive volume of the video board; but, I too would be considered by some (probably many) as an old coot. Within a few minutes of reaching my seat, I don my BOSE noise canceling headphones and plug into the Hokies radio broadcast. (Laaser is frequently difficult to stomach; but, Burnop is very good. They do keep you updated on injuries, etc. and frequently know more about what is happening during play stoppages than what you can see on the field and what you get from referee.)

    Chris, thanks to a kidney stone, unable to travel to recent Miami game and it was the first away game I have missed in twenty years. So, I have had many opportunities to evaluate away game video boards. I can assure you, they are no better and some are obnoxiously louder. As with home games, I go armed with my noise canceling headphones and tune into the in-stadium transmission of the Hokies broadcast.

  4. Will-
    While I agree with you about the stuff on the hokievision jumbotron; nevertheless, you need to know that, like me, you are becoming an old f__rt. I don’t understand the kids either.

  5. Guys,

    Thanks for the podcasts. It sure is fun to listen in on what is, essentially, a family room football conversation.

    You should bring on a regular board poster here or there to join your chats.

  6. I agree 100%, Will. It drives me insane when we are getting trounced at home and the “dance party” breaks out in Lane Stadium. I think it bothers me because our fan base used to be very “in-tune” with the game. We knew when to get loud, when to be quiet, etc. but this makes it seem as though we are blissfully unaware of what is happening. I would have stayed for the entire the Duke game but had to leave when our fans started doing “the wave” when we were LOSING by 31 points.

  7. Every one who came to a game with me enjoyed the game. Especially the entertainment. It is fun to attend a Va Tech game.

  8. There seems to be virtually no intensity in the stadium these days. Sure, it was a game Tech was supposed to win but starting “the wave” with a game against an FCS foe in question is not my cup of tea.

  9. William – Funny, I was commenting to my dad after the game that VT did a really good job of keeping the crowd engaged / entertained during all of the reviews and t.v. timeouts and yet you are completely annoyed with it. At the end of the day, football is entertainment. To each his own.
