Hokies on Fire – Vote on the Best Slogan!


The Hokies on Fire picked what they thought were the top 10 slogans for this year’s Hokies on Fire Blackout shirt. They are now available to choose from at www.hokiesonfire.com.

The winner will be announced on November 5th at the Hokies on Fire Pep Rally! He/she will receive $150 and we have an amazing surprise for them as well. Come to the pep rally and you might find out. The facebook event is: www.tinyurl.com/hofpeprally.

Look for the shirts to be on sale starting November 13th for a relatively cheap price.

Here is the list of the top 10 slogan ideas to choose from.
1) Welcome to BlackOUTsburg
2) If you can’t take the heat get out of the Cassell
3) Lights out in BLACKsburg
4) Hokie Triple Threat: The Cassell, The Soldiers, The Guards
5) Hope you’ve got Night Vision
6) Are you afraid of the dark
7) A blackout to remember
8 ) Cross our moat and step into the dark
9) Lets rock the Cassell with a knight full of Hokies
10) Blackout or Backout

Once the students decide on the “best slogan,” we will quickly start the design process to ensure that the shirts hit the stores on November 13th.

Also, we might combine two slogans depending on how well some are received by the students. If you’d like to assist us with the design process, please e-mail hokiesonfire@vt.edu.

Lastly, we are starting a “Cheers of the game” section at Tech Hoops. This is where we all will be able to coordinate cheers and unite as fans to better the atmosphere. Be sure to check here before each game to see what cheers are going to take place!

We are one step closer to making VT home of the best home-court advantage in the country. We still need your help! Make sure you tell your friends to vote at www.hokiesonfire.com!
Let’s Go!!!

A Hokies on Fire Blackout – Contest Has Ended


The Student Government is proud to announce the continuation of their Hokies on Fire program. The game this year will be a blackout against clemson on January 29th, 2009.

I am calling out to the student body to help transform Cassell Coliseum into the best home-court arena in the country.

On December 1st, Virginia Tech plays wisconsin. This is the only televised (ESPN2) college basketball game scheduled that day, which means that everyone will be watching. The student section is expected to come out stronger than ever and truly “Protect the Cassell”. Coach Greenberg wants Cassell Coliseum to be covered in Orange, so make sure you wear your favorite orange shirt to the game!

We have gathered slogan and cheer ideas from students. The best slogan will win $150 plus other prizes to be named later. I’m working on getting a basketball signed by Coach Greenberg and the players. On top of that, I’m trying to get the winner a dinner with the team.

Currently, Virginia Tech is known as a football school – we need to unite to prove that VT is much more than just a one sport school. Our basketball team is on the rise; Seth Greenberg is building something special here in Blacksburg. He can’t do it alone – he needs your help.

With your help, we will transform Cassell into the best arena in the country, and clemson will soon be afraid of the dark.

Before anything, you have to go to www.hokiesonfire.com and enter slogan ideas. Who knows, you must just be the lucky winner and be featured at our pep rally on November 5th!

Lets GO!!!
