BREAKING NEWS: Hokies get early start on 2031 recruiting class

Tech Hoops fans, please welcome the newest member of the family, Lil Niemo; all 9 pounds, 1 ounce of him! Dad, mom and the Hokies’ first commit for the 2031 recruiting class are happy, healthy and doing well. Also, Niemo wanted me to let know that he wrote the previews for the next two games in the labor and delivery wing.

Niemo, Mrs. Niemo, and little Niemo

      I’m the Cal Ripken of Tech basketball – I’m on the job 24/7/365! Just glad I don’t have to watch the duke game in the hospital.

    Love that #1 Dad shirt! This should have been an arm curl picture though

    • Niemo

      Lol – that is true, I should have arm curled him. I guess I only arm curl giant athletes.

  • Blue Collar Hokie

    • Niemo

      Yeah, it’s changed already. No rest for the weary, but we are home and doing well so can’t complain.

    Congratulations! You are about to start a wonderful adventure. OH, and you won’t play nearly as much golf for the next 15 years.

    • Niemo

      Luckily I was only into putt-putt. We will see how it impacts my HS baseball coaching – I’m missing all of tryouts this week.

    Congrats man!!!

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!
