Only 5 more good articles to go. Rreagan007 (talk) 17:16, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Four remain. JKBrooks85 (talk) 10:30, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Actually now there are only 3! Rreagan007 (talk) 18:52, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
Nah, there's still four. I just checked off the wrong game. JKBrooks85 (talk) 21:59, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

StatisticsEdit

I can't update all the stats, but it needs to be done given the Hokies' win the 2009 Chick-Fil-A-Bowl. 68.20.22.144 (talk) 18:41, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

I'll take a look at updating all of the statistics over the next few days. I'm also thinking of adding a summary table similar to the FL List of Connecticut Huskies bowl games I just got passed. Grondemar 19:51, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Photo and caption thoughtsEdit

Perhaps I'm being too picky here, but there seem to be a couple of issues with the photograph used at the top of this list. It's sort of representative of the subject, but as per WP:IMAGE LEAD #1, images in the lead "should be illustrating the topic specifically". It's a very nice picture and all, but:

  • It's not a photograph of fans celebrating a bowl game win per se, but rather the team's victory over the #10 Clemson Tigers during a conference game in 2006.
  • None of the Hokies' bowl games were played in Blacksburg or at Lane Stadium.
  • The caption reads "Bowl games are typically a cause for celebration in Blacksburg, Virginia, home of the Virginia Tech Hokies." Does VT typically host a watching party in the stadium? Maybe that might justify the photo a bit more.

I'm not going to lose sleep over it, but it's something to think about. It's not a malicious misrepresentation by any stretch, but it is a bit of a misrepresentation nonetheless. I'm sure there is an image somewhere of an actual bowl game or bowl game celebration out there for the Hokies. – Runfellow (talk) 22:03, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
