This Monday morning feels a little different. Instead of just football, we've got basketball on the table as well.
First, let's take a look back at the Virginia Tech football team's 36-9 rout of Maryland on Saturday.
The match up of coaching buddies Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech and Ralph Friedgen of Maryland resembles the rivalry between a hammer and a nail. That is to say it's awfully one-sided.
Meanwhile, it was a win for the Hokies, but did it mean anything? With Georgia Tech's win over Duke on Saturday, the Hokies have been formally eliminated from the conference championship picture and appear headed for a second-tier bowl (perhaps the Gator Bowl or Champs Sports Bowl?).
ESPN.com's Heather Dinich seems to think that Clemson will upset Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. That would open the door for Virginia Tech to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, as the ACC's No. 2 pick, against a Southeastern Conference opponent. (The Hokies would be the second team selected because seems unlikely that Georgia Tech would be picked for a bowl game in Atlanta's Georgia Dome, about a mile from its campus.)
Meanwhile, the Hokies' hoops team beat Brown, 69-55, on Sunday at Cassell Coliseum. Virginia Tech had some trouble with its interior defense against the Bears. But it was a good warm-up game, and Coach Seth Greenberg says he feels good about the team.
Virginia Tech hosts North Carolina Greensboro on Tuesday.
