Hokies on Fire – Vote on the Best Slogan!

The Hokies on Fire picked what they thought were the top 10 slogans for this year’s Hokies on Fire Blackout shirt. They are now available to choose from at www.hokiesonfire.com.

The winner will be announced on November 5th at the Hokies on Fire Pep Rally! He/she will receive $150 and we have an amazing surprise for them as well. Come to the pep rally and you might find out. The facebook event is: www.tinyurl.com/hofpeprally.

Look for the shirts to be on sale starting November 13th for a relatively cheap price.

Here is the list of the top 10 slogan ideas to choose from.
1) Welcome to BlackOUTsburg
2) If you can’t take the heat get out of the Cassell
3) Lights out in BLACKsburg
4) Hokie Triple Threat: The Cassell, The Soldiers, The Guards
5) Hope you’ve got Night Vision
6) Are you afraid of the dark
7) A blackout to remember
8 ) Cross our moat and step into the dark
9) Lets rock the Cassell with a knight full of Hokies
10) Blackout or Backout

Once the students decide on the “best slogan,” we will quickly start the design process to ensure that the shirts hit the stores on November 13th.

Also, we might combine two slogans depending on how well some are received by the students. If you’d like to assist us with the design process, please e-mail hokiesonfire@vt.edu.

Lastly, we are starting a “Cheers of the game” section at Tech Hoops. This is where we all will be able to coordinate cheers and unite as fans to better the atmosphere. Be sure to check here before each game to see what cheers are going to take place!

We are one step closer to making VT home of the best home-court advantage in the country. We still need your help! Make sure you tell your friends to vote at www.hokiesonfire.com!
Let’s Go!!!

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.

 

So join the TechHoops.com Wild Hokie Club today!
