Here are your Tuesday links.
By now, you surely know that Virginia Tech is playing Tennessee in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 in Atlanta. But perhaps you didn't know that the Volunteers' star safety, Eric Berry, is as giddy as a child when he meets other college football stars. On Monday, Berry was in in full fan mode in Charlotte, where he attended the presentation of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy to the nation’s best defensive player. (Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, a Heisman Trophy finalist, won the Nagurski.)
Also, Berry and defensive tackle Dan Williams were named first-team all-Southeastern Conference. As Austin Ward writes in the Knoxville News-Sentinel: "Berry was no surprise after earning all-America honors last week, but the emergence of Williams was one of the most pleasant the Vols had all season."
Meanwhile, in something completely unrelated, there seems to be a war of printed words among Virginia and Virginia Tech fans about their schools' colors. In the Bluefield Daily Telegraph, one Virginia graduate called out Virginia Tech for copying Virginia's orange color. But a Virginia Tech graduate responded with a letter saying that the Hokies' have a distinct burnt orange to go with their maroon. No matter what, it seems like the folks from each of these schools will always have something to disagree about.
