Guys.. I'm only in my mid 40s so I don't remember a time when VT was relevent

Can some of you old timers help me out?
Didn't they play in the MEAC before begging to get into the ACC? Are they the ones who burn couches when they win?

Clemson grad here who lives in Roanoke:

Tech is a good school with a fine football tradition. Coach Beamer built a powerhouse program through developing players and emphasizing special teams. Their heyday was 20 years ago, but they dominated the ACC their first few years in the conference. Since then they hit a dry spell (like we did for 20 years), but they seem to be coming back.

I am amused that some for their posters think that this year's Hokies have proven themselves, but that doesn't take away from their history. I am as big a fan as any on this board, but let's show some respect and class, OK?


They played for the '99 natty***

They were in the Big East I believe, along with Miami and Syracuse(?). The ACC got them about the same time I think. Miami and VT were very good in those days, but I don't think they had very hard schedules.


ACC now has 6 Big East Teams...right?

You should be old enough to remember Michael Vick. They lost to Florida State back in 99.

Your post reminds me of George W. Smith. From city council, he ran in '93 out in Oakland.

You probably never heard about him.
