Yes, VT grad student, but don't worry, it's Buckeyes or nothing.
ESPN chose to sue my university for student records. Money for research, capital improvements, students, faculty, and infrastructure instead had to defend the school I went to from a TV channel. They may not hate Ohio State but I sure as shit hate them.
I also am not a fan of titles that don't explain what the post is even about. I'd like to see "Braxton Miller Rushing Statistics" or "Miami's Laughable Attendance" instead of "Brax" or "LOL da U".
I prefer games on-campus so much more. Nothing beats the atmosphere of a college campus in the fall.
VT-Tennessee neutral in Briston, TN, more or less equidistant from both schools.
This is good for the sport. I'm excited for the VT-Tennessee matchup at Bristol Motor Speedway, and it would be cool to attend the largest college football game in history, but I have a feeling I'll be able to see better watching on my phone. I may sit that one out.
I know I'm stirring the pot here but God help us if Purdue counts as beefing up a schedule.
I wandered in there once just to look. It was weird.
Upvotes to everyone amputating the Boilermaker dead weight! "Because they've always been in the Big Ten" is a terrible reason for them to be in the Big Ten.
Lately I've gotten a lot of push back for my fiery hatred of Purdue, but I solidly stand by it and think there is a nice cozy spot for them in the Horizon League as soon as we wise up and axe the dead weight. Academics alone do not justify your presence in the Big Ten - this is why MIT isn't in our conference. Demographics are important too - this is part of the reason I welcome Northwestern and Rutgers, but the north-central Indiana demographic the Boilermakers provide doesn't cut it. There are schools that contribute a lot to the conference; there are schools that contribute a little; Purdue contributes nothing.
I've tried to politely convince people to take Virginia Tech more seriously... but if you think we're going to win that game without a fight you're crazy.
During the dark times after the tattoo fallout, right after I had recently moved away from Ohio and for the first time ever wasn't surrounded by Buckeyes, anytime I revealed that I went to Ohio State I'd get some flak but I never felt ashamed of my university. I was always (and still am) proud of my Ohio State education and allegiance.
But I would be truly ashamed to be associated with Florida State "University" in any way. Screw that entire institution and the infestation that is its fan base.
As much as I hate him based on the despicable things he's done, I hate him even more because he always had that fucking grin on his face. Awful, awful human being.
There's nothing higher than... architect.
There are two bars on the southwest side of the stadium, not far from the bridges connecting the Drake and the Towers, that are a little farther apart than the others. 5 and 3 should be no problem to squeeze through :)
Give me a break, that's a joke. Don't act offended by this.
I'm getting some push back from Purdue apologists. If all you need to justify your presence in the Big Ten is a good engineering program then let's invite MIT!
I'm over on the VT boards explaining to them why Purdue is the worst, and why if they make a road trip this year they should skip West Lafayette.
I'll be watching Michigan-BYU as well. Michigan's out of conference opponents have a decidedly western feel (Utah, Oregon State, UNLV, BYU).
Don't know if it was intentional or not "massacre" is extremely poor taste here. You cannot call it that.
Maturity and dedication like what you described at BG will beat "four star talent" any day. There is a reason Wisconsin, Alabama, and Oregon were all favored on paper, and there's a reason they all got outplayed.
I don't understand the haters, and I won't respond to them.
I think I know the game you mean - 2008, where we won 16-3? I ended up arguing with someone (also drunkenly, go figure) after that game that our offense would be fine; we promptly scored 6 points against Penn State later that month.
Lee Corso's rental car was struck by lightning in Blacksburg when he picked against Virginia Tech. I voted moderately, the Hokies will be much better this time around, I hope our team is taking them seriously.
1st year graduate. I'm solidly bought into Hokiedom and I've even been up to Pittsburgh to see them play but it'll never top my five fantastic years at OSU :)
