Virginia Tech's profile is rising in the ACC

Happy Saturday. It's a game day in Blacksburg, so let's get right to the reading.

Virginia Tech is rising in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and people are taking notice. The Atlanta Journal-Consitution, which has a brief piece about the Hokies, notes that they are off to their best start since 1995-96 behind guards Malcolm Delaney and Dorenzo Hudson.

But Virginia is looking to crash the party. The Cavaliers are hoping to "return the favor" against Virgina Tech after the Hokies went to Charlottesvile and emerged with a wild overtime victory. Virginia Coach Tony Bennett said the team needs to play "above and beyond the circumstances."

It's worth noting that Virginia hasn't played in a week. Will that help the Cavaliers to be rest? Or will that just make them rusty? Bennett seemed to deflect questions about the changes to Virginia's schedule, saying the Cavaliers were not bothered by the cancellation of the game against Maryland on Wednesday.

And finally, a story unrelated to basketball, football or any other sport. This is an interesting issue on campus that deserves some attention: Virginia Tech has threatened to cut funding and disrupt advertising revenue of the Collegiate Times, the student newspaper, for allowing anonymous comments to be posted on its Web site.
