At the end of the pregame show, Lee Corso put on a t-shirt with a quote of his own, from 2001: "I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them." That quote was originally meant as a funny line after Corso's rental car got hit by lightning in Blacksburg, but it meant a lot more to me today.
I've got a lot of kudos for ESPN. I don't remember them as being part of the 'swarm the campus' crowd in April. It wasn't a time they should've been there, anyway. But today, this was their time to be there, and I think they did a very good job with their coverage, at least from a Hokie point of view.
I'm quite happy, though, that there's something more significant in the college football world tonight than Virginia Tech's first football game since the shootings.
