Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Making a few LSU friends. Just be respectful on their board and they will quickly forget the stereotype of VT fans that UVA is trying to sell.
UVA comment on LSU's board
"Football does, however, swing in a matter of years. We're on the upswing with recruiting and have taken over a lot of the to VA talent"
"UVA recruiting class rankings
2011 - 23rd
2012 - 25th
2013 - 29th
Just an FYI, but recruiting is kind of like golf, you want to shoot a low score."
Pathetic part is that the guy saying they were taking over Va., and in an upswing in recruiting, probably believe it.
It seemed to me like the majority of LSU fans on there would rather have VT. I just saw an LSU fan here or there who wanted UVa because they'd be an easy win and UVa fans posting their typical delusional shenanigans. Any of them who care about the quality of football the SEC offers prefer VT.
Maybe there should be some kind of trophy for being good at trashing your rivals school on a message board. I think that will be the only trophy they will have a shot at winning for some time to come...
Good stuff over there Smitty. You could also gently remind the clown that says UV is so great for their respective lives that VT grads earn more money in early, mid and late career than UV grads. But we will continue to struggle by with our lowly VT degree, lol...
Someone needs to go post this response to the hoover saying VT is a one trick pony/sucks in all sports but football.
New Directors Cup standings
18. VT - 400
19. UVA - 391.5
60 of UVA points are from a sport VT doesn't even play
Don't confuse the waholes with things like facts and math.
Ironically, we crap all over them everyday....everyway...everywhere.
This is completely false.
The percentage of in-state vs out of state students are exactly the same at both schools.
word of advise when dealing with the Swamp Rats, you have to develop the thickest of skin & come to terms with the fact you're going to get razzed. Be ready to come back with your own ribbing & actually, on the whole, they're a really cool fanbase. But if you show weakness they will sink their teeth in worse. It's just how they are.
for just an example, last year we sat next to a couple Swamp Rats & it was back & forth, back & forth the entire game, it got pretty heated. Afterwards they invited us back to their tailgate for beers, venison & football while the traffic cleared out.
As far as UVa or VaTech in the SEC, pffft, no question. For those who love the SEC & want to actually preserve our culture of quality football, comraderie & quality tailgating it's VaTech & there isn't even a contest.
I would LOVE for VaTech to be in the league & in no way shape or form want some smug, smoot, wine & cheese egghead school anywhere near our football games or tailgates. Just such an awful fit to what we already have to even think about.
Hope you guys join us soon!
Thanks for your kind words SEC Ag. It is generally accepted among the VT fan base that Texas A&M and Nebraska are the two best fanbases we have ever had the privalege of scheduling a series against.
Our series with LSU actually went very well too.
I agree with you that, no question, VT is by far the better fit and will keep the SEC what it is without diluting the product that makes it special. UV cannot offer that, because they are just not a football school.
I for one would hope that the SEC would make Texam A&M our permanent cross devision rival. With our military and agricultural roots we are a natural fit and it would be a privalege to test ourselves against you guys on an annual basis.
