Here are some mid-week articles for your perusal. Enjoy.
The Idaho Statesman reported on Tuesday that Virginia Tech and Boise State might meet on Labor Day weekend next fall, instead of on Oct. 2. Virginia Tech Athletic Director Jim Weaver said last fall that game would be moved, but he then said it was a misunderstanding after Boise State officials said it would not be moved. Now, apparently, the game could be moved after all. "It hasn’t been changed yet," Boise State Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier said. "ESPN is looking into it.”
Now, onto basketball. The folks at the Charlotte Observer put together a sharp, succinct look at the ACC before the league play starts in earnest. So far, North Carolina, which is coming off Monday's loss to College of Charleston and is coping with injured players, is still searching for an identity. The article notes (correctly, I'd say) that the Hokies have put themselves on track to earn an NCAA tournament berth in March.
Because of injuries to both teams, sprained ankles will be an epidemic when the Tar Heels take on the Hokies on Sunday. The status of Virginia Tech guard Malcolm Delaney, who sprained his left ankle in a win over Longwood on Dec. 30, is still unknown. But his replacement, Dorenzo Hudson, said he was "very proud of what I did, and what we accomplished as a team" in scoring 41 points to lead the Hokies over Seton Hall on Saturday.
