Revenge time boy and girls.
Here is the annoying aspect of what happened a month ago. Back in football season when VT beat UNC 35-10 we all suffered Hokie fan and their constant assertion of superiority on the field. And we all took comfort in the qualified belief that come basketball season UNC would give VT a lesson in how it is all done. So what happens? The Hokies trump UNC in Blacksburg and our suffering at the hands of Hokie fan continued unabated.
So now VT returns the trip to Chapel Hill and Tar Heel fans everywhere would like nothing better than to see UNC come out and totally dismantle this Hokie team in a way that would make it abundantly clear what happened a month ago was a fluke. Of course it is not likely to unfold to that degree but I have every reason to believe that playing Chapel Hill, UNC will show up to play in a big way and take care of VT in a decisive manner. And I doubt there will be any looking past to Boston College and I know that making a statement at the expense of this VT team will be somehwat of a priority.
