Scenes from Virginia Tech's blackout

"Coach Seth Greenberg looks like he's ready for a wedding rocking his formal attire," The Post's Mark Giannotto Tweeted on Sunday afternoon, live from the Virginia Tech blackout. "Black suit, black tie for the blackout."

I wanted to see the wedding version of Seth Greenberg, and I assume you do too, so here he is, via But his black suit and black tie weren't actually the most interesting thing I stumbled upon during my brief virtual trip to Blacksburg. No, that would be this press release, announcing the upcoming visit of ESPN's College GameDay to campus for the Hokies' meeting with Duke.

"We are excited and honored to be selected by ESPN to be part of their College GameDay," Greenberg said in the release. "It is the next step as we continue to build our brand and create a national profile for our program. It is a reflection of our community, season ticket holders and students and their passion and ownership in our program. ESPN recognizes that Virginia Tech's environment is second-to-none in college basketball. I have no doubt that the Hokie Nation will come out in full force and show the nation the special atmosphere we have here at Virginia Tech."

Second to none, huh? Well, that demands more photos. Specifically, photos of students dressed like bananas.
