One of our most viewed entries of the weekend was this vibrant entry welcoming our land grant bretheren of Virginia Tech into the Atlantic Coast Conference’s landscape.
We therefore send you on a quick journey to VPI’s Gobbler Country Blog to witness the evolutionary experience of a fan into the real world.
I thought that 24 hours after the Hokies lost the Tar Heels 79-76 I’d be more rational. I am not. I still put this one squarely on shoddy ACC officiating.
While I’m not convinced the Hokies would have won had a foul been called on North Carolina in the final seconds of yesterday’s game, I am convinced it was a foul and the call made on the floor was wrong.
That hasn’t changed. Neither has my new-found hatred of North Carolina and Tyler Hansbrough. I used to like North Carolina and used to root for it more often than not when it wasn’t playing Virginia Tech. No longer. I already don’t watch Duke-Carolina games because it’s the most overrated rivalry in sports, but now I don’t even have a rooting interest.
I despise Hansbrough as well. With the way he’s treated by officials and the calls he gets, he is an honorary Duke Blue Devil in my eyes. His game is about initiating contact and getting calls. I can no longer tolerate the sight of him.
