I personally love the strategy. Opportunities for big hits inside our 20 yard line which can create some huge emotions that the defense can use to stuff them for a 3 and out. Also opportunity for a big turnover on the return or on the subsequent defensive stand. Ask Ole Miss fans what that kickoff return fumble by Alabama did for them. I think our chances for a turnover or stuff inside the twenty are much greater than a big return. The key is a high kick towards the sidelines and lane discipline for our defenders. On occasion one may go out of bounds on us. So when it does the defense just needs to step it up.

Regarding Hokie, It really has no meaning. It was derived from a team fight song from the 1890's. The song started Hoki, Hoki, Hoki. The "e" was later added. My youngest daughter is an alum. During orientation for the family it was the first thing they talked about as well as the school colors and why a turkey (Gobbler) was their mascot. The campus buildings are erected with limestone block that they refer to as "Hokie Stone" again  deriving from the fight song. By the way the campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in all of the land. It is quite remarkable. She loved it there.

I guess winning a national championship really was not all that important. But best of luck to him. I would hope in the years to come that when we have a high profile home state recruit he will stay home. It will be somewhat rewarding when Duke beats the Terps next year, We told you so.
