Examining the November Streak


http://www.educationworld.com/a_admin/newsletter/clipart/images/clip_november002_L.jpg

On Thursday, Virginia Tech goes down to Florida to take on Miami in a suddenly important division race, and it is also on a Thursday night, something Virginia Tech has been very successful in owning.

However, this is not what this blog post is about, as it is on November 1, the start of the final chapter of the 2012 campaign for Virginia Tech. I decided to investigate and do some digging through the archives of Virginia Tech to see how they have fared in November since the 2004-2005 season, the inaugural season they officially became a member of the ACC. All of this information came from Hokiesports.com.

*In 2004-2005 season, before November, Virginia Tech had a 6-2 record, with losses to Southern California and North Carolina State. Then, in Novemeber, Virginia Tech went on a 3-0 streak and capped the season with a 16-10 victory over Miami. The average margin of victory was 22 points.

*In 2005-2006, Virginia Tech carried 8-0 record before November, and then went 2-1 in November, highlighted by a loss to...Miami. The average margin of victory was 15 points.

*In 2006-2007, Virginia Tech sported 6-2 record before November, and claimed 4-0 record. Average margin of victory - 17 points.

*In 2007-2008, 6-2 before November, and 4-0 November record. Average margin of victory - 21.25 points.

*In 2008-2009, 5-3 before November, and 3-1 November record. Again, the loss in November was another loss to Miami. Average margin of victory - 5.5 points.

*In 2009-2010, 5-3 before November, and 4-0 November record. Average margin of victory - 24.25 points.

*In 2010-2011, 6-2 with two painful losses that folks would like to forget, but in November, 4-0 streak! Average margin of victory - 16.75 points.

*In 2011-2012, 8-1 before November, but another 3-0 streak. Average margin of victory - 17.33 points.

So, overall, Virginia Tech OWNED November with a combined 27-2 record!

Since Virginia Tech is playing Miami, I think it would interest everyone that playing during the month of November, Virginia Tech owns a 4-2 record over Miami since joining the ACC. Two notable games in which Tech beat Miami were played 9/26/09 (a very rainy day, if folks recall), and the most thrilling comeback that will go down in Tech lore, a victory over Miami in Blacksburg 10/8/11 with the Final Drive.

This season, Virginia Tech is sitting at a painful 4-4 record, which since joining the ACC, has not happened. What is the most likely scenario? I am not entirely certain, but I believe it is highly probable that Tech finishes with a 3-1 record at best, or possibly 2-2 record for the month of November.

There is no getting around it - Virginia Tech has to beat Miami if they want to go to Charlotte.

LET'S GO, HOKIES!
