Reacts: Virginia Tech Hokies Love their Men’s Basketball Team Direction - UP!

The Virginia Tech Hokies (#16) are seeing the highest rankings of the last decade, and certainly at 100% the highest confidence levels from the Hokie Nation fanbase. Being #2 in the formidable ACC isn’t hurting much, either.

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Virginia Tech Hokies fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

After winning six of their last seven games, things are looking good for the Virginia Tech basketball team. With that in mind, fans are feeling confident in the team’s outlook.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a full 100 percent of Virginia Tech fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction. This is the fourth week in a row to see the number hold that high.

Virginia Tech fans had high expectations heading into the season and hope the team can live up to those hopes. There are plenty of teams, however, that are already appearing to surpass expectations on the year.

Fans around the country were asked which team has been the best surprise so far this year. 39 percent of fans gave that title to the Texas Longhorns, followed by 24 percent that picked Minnesota.

While hopes are still high for teams around the country, college football fans already feel pretty confident they know who will win next year’s College Football Playoff Championship. Even with a large portion of Alabama’s championship roster heading to the NFL, 42 percent of fans nationally think the Tide will repeat next season.

Editor’s Addition:

With the current polling released, the Hokies find themselves in an interesting place; 2nd in the ACC and ranked #16 in the AP.

We’ll let Coach Mike Young’s statement at the end of the Wake Forest game to give everyone a solid idea of where he sees this team, and where it belongs from now on.

Tomorrow evening at 5:00 PM, The Eagles of Boston College come to the Cassell. It’s going to be an exciting game.
