He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.

    We need to start growing up and playing better on the road. I know people may think they are young, but we all need to step it up because we have the talent.

    Our next 5 games are very winnable, although 3 of them are on the road

    the wake forest game on the 23rd is a big one. we need this win to start gaining confidence and momentum

    There’s only so much we can do though. Yes, we need more intensity to start on the road, but ball-handling isn’t going to fix itself overnight. That will be an issue all year.

    It is a Catch-22: with Thorns you are giving up offense and defense, but he’s a better ball-handler and passer; with Delaney you get the opposite.  With Hudson on-board now, we might be able to deal with Thorns’s negatives since Hudson is a good shooter and good defender.

    Hudson is the best defender of the three.

    Thorns is the best “point guard”.

    Delaney is the best offensive threat. 

    So Greenberg will have to do a good job of leveraging these qualities from each.

The Wild Hokie Club!

The Hokies experienced their worst season since the ricky "program bomb" stokes era. Sure, it would have been easy to quit on you, but did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!

 

And we do it for free! But, just like NPR, we rely on the generosity of our loyal fans to help keep this humble Hokie website alive. That being said, see how you can help TechHoops.com make it to 10 years!

 

Jon King, Ben Floyd and Dan Rickenbach all got in on the action and we encourage all TechHoops heads to do the same.

 

Any donation amount earns you a spot in our Wild Hokie Club. We'll even give you a shout out on Twitter and Facebook. We may even let you get armcurled by Niemo.
