NCAA Basketball: Virginia Tech at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The SB Nation Fan Pulse survey is back in action after a holiday break. Since the last time the poll went out to the voters, Virginia Tech played five games. The four game winning home stretch followed by the trip the Charlottesville. The Hokies started this week 10-4 and 1-2 in the ACC, but have also displayed that Mike Young has plenty of young talent on the roster.

So how did Tech fans respond to a positive home stand against lower conference opponents and the brutal offensive day against UVA?

Week 7 - Hokies believe in the Mike Young project

Going into that stretch of the schedule most would have predicted four wins (the home games) and a loss (away to UVA). That’s what happened and thus fan confidence remains at the same level. Technically, it’s slightly up from 95% last time to 95.2% this time, but that’s more so to do with the number of overall voters across the two weeks.

By the time we get to next week’s survey on Monday voters will weigh in on Tech’s big comeback against Syracuse and the upcoming home game against NC State. A win over the efficient Wolfpack would see the Hokies go to 12-4 and 3-2 in the ACC.

This week all voters were asked which team is the best in the country at the moment. Overall people agreed with the polls picking Gonzaga in the top spot at 37.5% and the Duke Blue Devils in second with 21.3%. However, this season has already taught up that being the #1 ranked team in the country is a dangerous place to be, so it will be interesting to see how long the Zags last there.
