NCAA Football: Belk Bowl-Virginia Tech vs Kentucky Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The first full weekend of college football, such as it is, figured to be a tell for what’s to come down the road, and the signs are not good. Virginia Tech announced this morning that its game against Virginia on Sept. 19 has been postponed because of “COVID-19 issues.”

Earlier this week, Hokies head coach Justin Fuente said he didn’t think his team would have been able to play against NC State as it was originally scheduled—for today.

In addition to postponing its game against UVA, Virginia Tech is halting football practices for four days. So it’s fair to wonder what exactly is going on in Blacksburg, and how bad things are, and also question why that school isn’t more forthcoming about its situation.

With the UVA game now postponed, the Hokies are again set to begin their football season against NC State, this time on the 26th. This is gonna be something to keep an eye on for sure.

Also, this sure aged well, huh:
