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.

    Niice top 10 highlight package Niemo, good work.

  2. Bristolhokie says:

    Great job. Are you trying to tell us (or Seth) something with the Raines plays? Get Raines the ball inside and good things happen. He has grown up this year and should be a monster inside next year if we get him the ball. Would have liked to have seen the screen again that Raines set on the Duke player in overtime….did he ever find out what hit him?

  3. Ryan W says:

    Agreed, that screen on Thornton was awesome. Check out Raines’ profile pic on twitter. Its him standing over thornton with a split screen of that famous muhammad ali photo…

    Good compilation, niemo. Move that Zo shot against UVa up the list, though!

      It wasn’t at the ‘end’ of the game, and we were already ahead. That’s what cost it points on the NBI – Niemo BRAHHH Index.

    Excellent Niemo! No, Bristolhokie, what I think Niemo is doing with the CR complilation is commending Seth on developing this 3-star big man. And these clips don’t even show some of the fancy footwork CR gave us late in the season. Bbrrrraa! (did I spell that right?)
