@  UVAObserver : (29 March 2017 - 10:54 AM) UVA is losing Brian Borland to become the USTA head of Men's Tennis. A crushing blow, as Borland built the program with his own two hands.
@  BigWinners : (26 March 2017 - 12:47 AM) In my money bracket I have two FF teams left, UNC/KU but lost my champ Arizona
@  futbolking : (24 March 2017 - 08:36 PM) I have one of my final four left (UNC) and my champion is gone....
@  Ryan4VT : (24 March 2017 - 07:50 PM) @mv91 Same. Same.
@  mv91 : (24 March 2017 - 06:06 PM) Well.....How is everyones bracket looking. My elite 8 on the left side of the bracket is totally gone. my champion is left tho lol
@  1inStripes : (24 March 2017 - 04:25 PM) Mom opened up a new account too though.
@  cityofRaven : (24 March 2017 - 04:06 PM) Mom said I couldn't come back on to the board until you cleaned up all the dirty pictures.
@  GMan : (22 March 2017 - 06:19 PM) VT offered an 8th grader...Antonio Grimes...
@  BigWinners : (22 March 2017 - 01:53 AM) And yet went 2-1 in second round, could've went 3-0 if the refs don't blow two huge calls in UNC/Ark.
@  futbolking : (22 March 2017 - 01:51 AM) Just as in football, the acc had a 9-4 record against the SEC during the regular season this past season....
@  BigWinners : (22 March 2017 - 01:46 AM) Hate on UF ifnyou want, but the SEC has as many S16 teams than ACC and Big East combined.
@  Ryan4VT : (21 March 2017 - 01:04 AM) I own this shirt: but it came out WAY before OSU won the title. http://ep.yimg.com/a...ory-shirt-4.jpg
@  Ryan4VT : (21 March 2017 - 01:03 AM) I had never seen that one.
@  gwave0333 : (21 March 2017 - 12:53 AM) https://cdn2.vox-cdn...ure_0_0_JPG.jpg
@  Ryan4VT : (21 March 2017 - 12:46 AM) @gwave0333 What shirts are you talking about?
@  gwave0333 : (20 March 2017 - 10:44 PM) This is also coming from a fanbase that made shirts about how they beat the eventual national champs in the regular season and got NIT rings last year
@  Ryan4VT : (20 March 2017 - 09:44 PM) @UVAObserver I'd rather go toe to toe with the team that knocked off the number 1 overall seed than score 39 against a team that lost to Vandy THREE times. :)
@  GMan : (20 March 2017 - 09:47 AM) Hokies take 2 of 3 vs. #1 FSU on the diamond. FSU won game one, 9-2, and looked to be the winners of game two, leading 10-2 before the Hokies made a furious comeback to win 13-12 in extra innings. Then on Sunday, VT gave FSU its worst defeat in program history by beating the 'Noles 17-0.
@  GMan : (20 March 2017 - 09:41 AM) Half-decade??? LOL You mean five years??? If that's the case, UVA hasn't beaten VT in football in THREE half-decades...LOL. Half-decade...lawyer speak makes it sound so much longer than five years. Ever tell on of your clients that you can get them "a half-decade" in jail instead of five years???
@  UVAObserver : (20 March 2017 - 01:46 AM) UVA will not finish in the Top 200 offensively when it takes opponents an average of 20 seconds per possession to get a shot off. We'd wear ourselves out trying to artificially increase the offensive pace. The con to controlling pace so ruthlessly is a smaller margin for error and less time to revert to the statistical mean.

Interesting matchup in my neck of the woods. Actually, I am planning to be there for this one. The locals early schedule has been much weaker than the Richlands slate. This is a huge determining factor for me. Obviously, the Blue Tornado squad is not as powerful as past teams; however, they are good and solid and certainly will give the Cavaliers their toughest game thus far. Trust me, the folks in Daleville are already fired up for this one. This is the classic Southwest Virginia perennial power versus an upstart working its way to notoriety in the Roanoke Valley. My edge goes to the tradition that is Richlands football. Go Blues!

The Quarterback and Running Back for Lord Botetourt are both very good.  The RB put up some very good numbers last year.  I've heard from a friend out that way that they don't throw the ball hardly at all.  Hopefully Richlands comes to play and can get the ball rolling again.  If we can clean up the passing game and step up our pass defense we have chance of being good.  Look forward to making the trip out to Daleville this Friday.

LB has had some good wins this year against some very respectable teams.  Richlands has had trouble over the past few years against teams from the Roanoke area.  LB by a touchdown.

No disrespect to Richlands, but I have a feeling LB is going to win this pretty handily.  My prediction by at least 17.  31-14.  LB is pretty tough and their RB is a beast.  I would love to see Richlands win this one to keep some notoriety going for extreme SWVA, but I just don't think it will happen.

We are definitely the underdog here. More bad news for us. Colten will not be playing Friday night. Out with a shoulder sprain. LB wins this pretty easy in my opinion. I hope we can make a good showing. If we can't throw the ball we lose big. If we can trow maybe we can keep it respectable!

Exit 150B, take a right off the exit.  Right at the first light onto 220.  Go about a mile and a half.  School is on the left

I hate to hear that he is out. Best of luck to you all, pulling for the Blues.

Oddly enough, I think I know more about Botetourt's team than that of my own alma mater with regard to this matchup.

 

My take is that the Blues will have to play their very best to have a shot at this one.  This looks like the best team that Botetourt has fielded in recent memory and they've got really great momentum coming into this game.  Their offense is clicking and they've played some fairly decent competition to date.  Richlands will need to control the line of scrimmage and keep the Cavs' offense on the sidelines as much as possible.  Doing that will improve their chances.

 

On paper this looks like an uphill climb.  But anything can happen.

Richlands will have their hands full this week and for the next two weeks with Virginia High, who is much improved, and with Bluefield.  When was the last time Richlands lost 2 or even 3 regular season games?

I love my blues,  but with Colton out and River still getting his legs under him as a starting varsity QB,  and with some issues at receiver, and the O line still coming together,  I think this might be a long night for the blues.  They are playing a lot of young players,  but they do they have the potential to be a very good team,  but I am afraid they have just too much going against them this week,  with them playing a good team that has a lot of good talent along with good coaching and at their place. 

  I hope I am way off on this though and the blues give them a good hard fought game !


There's a F5 BlueTornado warning for Southwest Virginia this fall !
