Virginia Tech’s upset loss to Old Dominion was ugly. The immediate aftermath was even uglier.
Following the game, it was discovered that the Hokies were victims of theft in the locker rooms at S.B. Ballard Stadium in Norfolk.
A statement would be released that confirmed the robbery and that police were being involved in the case.
“The Virginia Tech athletic department confirmed there were items missing from the Virginia Tech locker room following the football game against Old Dominion in Norfolk Friday night. The university is working with law enforcement and Old Dominion University on the matter, and will have no further comment,” the school said.
The loss to Old Dominion was Virginia Tech’s first to a school outside of the Power Five or a top-25 independent since 2018.
In the next 12 days, the Hokies will be facing ACC rival Boston College, followed by FCS minnow Wofford before taking on West Virginia on a Thursday. Those will be all home games.
Whatever went wrong against Old Dominion needs to be fixed quickly before this season gets out of hand.
