Spread: VT by 20.5.
Happy Hokie Day, y’all! Please note we will likely not have video highlights for this game, and +/- will be a few days late as we all take time to spend with our families this Thanksgiving Weekend. If you want, you can call me and I’ll yell, “BRRRRRRRAHHHHH” every time the Hokies dunk the ball.
On Friday, head to the Cassell for an appetizer before you watch the Hokies pound the hoos on Saturday. I don’t think XM advertising will prove to be Nostradamus*.
Tech takes on the mountaineers!!!… of appy state. appalachian state comes in 0-3 against Division 1 teams with losses to in-state high point, ecu, and campbell. They were outscored 89-72 in those games against those power programs.
Jay Canty, a 6’6″ transfer from xavier, is the mountaineers’ best player. This is a young team, at least in their starting lineup, and aren’t ready for ACC competition. So, I’m predicting a big Hokie blowout (maybe even a Bear Fight?) before the Tech schedule gets challenging with iowa, oklahoma state, and @wvu coming up next.
Jarell Eddie and Erick Green are coming off career highs of 28 and 26 respectively on Monday at unc-g.
*In the first VT football program of this season, XM had a full page ad talking about following your favorite team, VT, on XM radio. In the ad there was a picture of an XM receiver screen with the VT-uva game on it. The screen showed: VT 14, uva 54 – 3rd quarter. I hope that ad person got fired. They only have 55 points combined in their last 7 meetings with the Hokies.
