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.

    We are clinging to a + number in points (1.4).

    He may turn things around but I wonder if Brown has the worst field goal pct. for a starting VT guard in our history. 34% overall and a stellar 21% in conference play. Good grief. And two games in a row now he has hit a key shot late. Which is great but wouldn’t be needed if he would make some shots before the end of the game. He has really lost it.

    I thought Beyer did some great things today. He seems to be a decent passer as well.

    • Niemo

      Considering we still have a schollie left for next year, shouldn’t we give it to Beyer?

      • Chris_atl

        Good point. He could take the one vacated by DFS. What is that process? Does a coach go through the recruiting process first and then see if he has a scholarship left or would they decide on the walk-on first so they know how many spots they have to fill?

        • Niemo

          They could designate anyone at any time. And it could be year-to-year, I.e. we give him a schollie for next year but then fill out all the slots (13) for 2014-15, we wouldn’t have to renew it.

          • Chris_Atl

            If that’s the case then give to him next year for sure. Although if he plays OK I think it would be kind of scummy to pull it back. But, since he was a walk-on to begin with I guess that wouldn’t be viewed as harshly.

      • goodraisin

        I agree, you can’t tell that Beyer is a walk-on when he comes in the game… excellent rebounder and a good passer. I think he’s earned that last scholarship even if he won’t get to play much (if at all) next season. Then again if he’s giving more effort in practice than the scholarship players, JJ will play him.

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.
