Commonwealth Cup Remains in Blacksburg

A Subdued Lane Stadium

Were it not for the school bands at Saturday’s game, I would have thought we were at an NFL game.  Half the south endzone was empty, and it seemed like a big group of students didn’t make it back from Thanksgiving break in time for the game.

Not only was the crowd small (by Tech standards), it wasn’t particularly active.  Sure, it was cold.  Sure, it was noon.  But except for the boos directed towards the Virginia Tech offense throughout various portions of the game, that was a very passive crowd on Saturday afternoon.

That’s what happens when you have a tough season.
