Seth Greenberg and Blaine Taylor on Tech-ODU
Way late on this, but Virginia Tech's Seth Greenberg and Old Dominion's Blaine Taylor had some fun comments on the possibility of the Hokies and Monarchs resuming a series. For the purposes of entertainment, bear in mind that Old Dominion currently is 22-6 with an RPI of 28; Virginia Tech is 17-8 with an RPI of 65.
Anyhow, the question was when the series would begin again, posed to Greenberg on 102.1 The Game.
"Uh, it probably won't happen," Greenberg said. "You know, we're scheduling in the best interest of Virginia Tech and what we need to do for our basketball program. You know, we're gonna play games that we think can help us grow our brand, games that will be televised on national television. And that, it is what it is."
Then the clip was played for Taylor on the same station. He sighed.
"Well, you know, I don't ever want to tell other people how to do their jobs or what they should do," he said. "When I first got here I said you know, if we could be one of the best teams in the state or the best team in the state, we would have a really good program, and that's one of the things we've aspired to do. So one, I'd like to think that the teams that at least talk like they want to be some of the better teams in the state would open themselves to playing some of the best teams in the state.
"We've won more games in the state of Virginia than anybody in Virginia the last half-dozen years. And we had a good series with Virginia Tech. Unfortunately, what happens, if one team kind of gets the best of the series, sometimes the other team says 'Hey, there's some other people to play and some other things we want to do.' So I get along with Seth just fine, and he can do his business the way he wants. if he doesn't want to play, I can't make him. But I do think the fact that we won some games in the series is something that enters into it, obviously."
