Niemo is a member of the VT Class of '98. While not a professional journalist by any stretch, Niemo analyzes and breaks down every minute of Hokie hoop action. 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.

    I’ve fixed the Season in Review video and added the omissions from the first cut.

  2. LuvzAznChix says:

    It’s Erik Green’s team next season…time for him to step up.

  3. Chris Skipper says:

    Hey Niemo what is the song right after all the above

    • Niemo says:

      Chris – Juelz Santana – The Second Coming – it was featured in the Nike Air Force commercials a few years ago.

  4. NYC Hokie says:

    Great video (and nice soundtrack)! The Duke game (and win) was pretty much our NCAA tourney.

    I’m ready for next season!!

  5. Chris Skipper says:

    Thanks Niemo. plus Zo needs to contribute but i think it is pretty clear that Erick Green is the leader on the team and he has the best leadership qualities,

  6. Ryan W says:

    Awesome re-cap, just awesome.

  7. Goodraisin says:

    Good stuff Niemo… great way to close out the season for VT. I can’t wait for November!

  8. Martin says:

    Great video. I really appreciate what you guys do here. As much as I love tech football and the Redskins, I think I have become a bigger fan of tech basketball over the course of this season than any other sports club out there. Thanks a lot Niemo. Also, I was wondering if you know of a way to download this video to my computer (when I right click the only option is to copy the link). I want to keep this one in case the video gets taken offline at some point..

    • Niemo says:

      Martin – Not sure how you can download it. I’m sure YouTube keeps that stuff on lockdown (where it is housed). And it probably will get banned at some point. And it will eventually get ruined in iMovies on my Mac, too, because I’ll have to delete the video clips I used which messes up the movie (the video clips hose up iMovie after you import so many — it is a very delicate balance I’ve figured out over the years and then have to flush your queue).

      I’ll let you know if I figure something else out, though, and thanks for the kind words. I love Hokies football and Braves baseball, but Hokies bball really is awesome and has always been my passion since I first got to VT.

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 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.
