Heads Up

Just so you know, we won’t have highlights or +/- for the wvu game. We will have a recap as always. Cope will hold down the fort as always.

We likely will not have a preview (or a bare bones one) for miss valley state (Jerry Rice’s alma mater) on Monday. Highlights are 50/50 and we will have +/- for wvu and mvsu by Tuesday.

Just didn’t want you all to think, in case we lose, that we had shut down the bandwagon. I’m on travel. See you all next week.

Go Hokies, smear the ‘neers!

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.

    No bandwagon here. Majority of those reading the site have been supporting this team forever.

    Where you at, Niemo? I’m down here in Mexico and didn’t see the game, but just about decided to break my iPhone when I saw we lost by 1 after being down 6 at half. Damnit. All good, though… time to see how these guys bounce back from a tough L.

    The Youtube account Hokietapes sometimes has the games posted. He has 7 games up so far. It’s not a highlight clip though. It’s the whole game without commercial interruption.

      Thanks a lot – send business away from us!

        Only if you want to view 2 hours instead of 5 minutes.

        I’m not affiliated with the account. I just happened across it since I couldn’t see the OSU game real-time.

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!
