VT is the latest Power Five university to get the ball rolling on the football season during the coronavirus pandemic.

As I said Monday about Ole Miss beginning football activities in the coming days, America needs a win right now.

Virginia Tech might not be the powerhouse football program some other teams are, but they’re still a very respectable P5 team.

With every P5 team that returns, we’re one step closer to getting games in the fall. If that’s not a reason to celebrate, then I just don’t know what is.

Hopefully, we see a lot more schools join the action and start bringing players back. I know these are “voluntary,” but we all know players aren’t sitting activities out.
