Niemo’s Nugget | florida state

With the upcoming ACC Football Championship Game this weekend, I thought I’d share this little interesting nugget: florida state is the only ACC team Virginia Tech has not beaten on the road in basketball or football since joining the league.  And I’m talking in either sport.  VT has beaten the other 10 schools on the road in both basketball and football, yet haven’t beaten the noles in either.  Tech is 0-5 at florida state in hoops and 0-1 in football.  That’s right, VT has won at the Dean Dome and Cameron, but not the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center. 

VT is just 2-6 overall in hoops against the noles and 1-2 with the pigskin.  VT has beaten every ACC school at home in both sports.  The Hokies are 23-5 in ACC road games since joining the league, easily the most impressive state of Tech’s domination of the league.  Tech has actually won at least twice at every football road venue except fsu, bc (1-2), and clemson (1-0).

Luckily, the football game this weekend is in the state of North Carolina, which the Hokies own.  VT is 11-0 in the state against ACC opponents since joining the league.

Tech will not get a chance to win in Tallahassee this season in hoops.  The lone game is on Saturday, January 8th at the Cassell.  VT won’t play at fsu in football until 2013.

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.
