Initially this was assumed to be purely a weather related competition causality. Then it was announced VTech would take a forfeit loss which led me to believe it was covid related and the Hokies didn't have enough guys available to put on the mat.

I read a couple articles this morning that VTech was having weight management issues with multiple wrestlers, and combined with the weather the coaching staff simply decided to not make the trip.

That's not cool. Talk about ducking the competition, this is a duck on a mega level. The top programs in the ACC, promoted for weeks as the featured bout on "Friday Night Duals" and multiple high end matchups. Growing the sport is not done by promoting your biggest matchups and then sitting it out.

Poor choice, and bad look for Robie!
