Yes they do need to do that, but the last AD philosophically could not


support that. It will be interesting to see if the new guy can do that or if this is really the philosophy of the whole organization.

I believe UMass and UConn would be more willing to take the right steps and that would keep us in the New England market. That's important to the University Presidents specially since a lot of ACC schools including Virginia Tech get high paying out of state students from Massachusetts. That's why VT has no intention of giving up BC as a cross over rival. That game does give us some top of mind exposure in Massachusetts. Though small, it is way better than none and cost us nothing.

PS A lot of schools in the Coastal would trade us in a second for BC as a cross over for the above reason even though many VT football fans don't see it as a great game.
