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.
