Tuesday links

Here's some reading to start your Tuesday.

First, let me digress on a football topic. I've read plenty about the prospect of the Virginia Tech-Boise State game being moved to Labor Day. I haven't been able to independently confirm it; I'll report it once I know whether it's true. But there's been plenty of of chatter about this since it was reported by the Idaho Statesman. The Cliff's Notes version is that the Hokies were not initially opposed to moving the game to this date (in fact, Athletic Director Jim Weaver said so on a radio show in October), but Boise State would have had to arrange its schedule to make it work. We'll see.

Now, back to basketball. The Hokies play at Virginia on Thursday. The Cavaliers got a bit of good news on Monday: Calvin Baker, a senior guard, is back at practice after a "coach's decision" kept the captain from traveling to Saturday's loss at Wake Forest.

Speaking of that loss in Winston-Salem, N.C., was that simply a bad day or a truly troubling sign for Virginia? The Post's Zach Berman says it's fair question. Virginia Tech will get an up-close look on Thursday night in Charlottesville.
