My seventy-some-year-old father and my brother attended the season opener at lane Stadium. We knew the odds were against us, going up against OSU, but the Hokie Nation showed up in full force. It's fans like my father and my brother that make a program grow and get better. Players notice when the stands are full and the crowd is into it. Hopefully, the season will be successful and the players at Tech will win a few. Even if they don't win, it's fun to go to Blacksburg and jump around to Metalica.
