Around the Web | VT and wvu Scheduling Banter


Expect anything that has even a remote connection to Hokie basketball scheduling to be a news story for the next eight months or more.  The Roanoke Times published an interesting story detailing attempts by VT and wvu to renew their rivalry.  It takes on a sort of “he said, she said” feel to it.  It amuses me that wvu and Coach Huggy Bear up there were obviously listening to what VT and Coach Greenberg were saying about stalled attempts to get the teams playing again and felt the need to respond.

Roanoke Times Article

To me, my feeling is maybe VT has to make some sacrifices right now and take a game that isn’t so appealing.  Yes, the game in DC would probably be close to 50/50 in terms of fans (maybe a slight edge for the Hokies), while the game in Charleston would be 90% wvu.  So?  That’s still better than playing the mountaineers in Morgantown, when all their students could be there and you risk getting pelted with who knows what.  The Hokies aren’t duke or carolina, or even wake or georgia tech for that matter in terms of being a name program.  Let’s make some sacrifices now while we build up our program, and can get invited to the major early season tournaments, and then start acting elite.  For now we just have to start playing the elite, wherever it may be.
