Virginia Tech fans have mixed feelings as 2021 gets underway. While confidence in the basketball team is sky-high, fans, expectedly, aren’t feeling as good about the direction of the football program.
The Hokies basketball team has climbed into the AP’s top 25 and look competitive in the ACC. With that start, fans are understandably excited and believing in Mike Young’s team. According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a full 100 percent of responding VT fans believe the team is headed in the right direction. That number has held steady for three weeks now.
That confidence comes in the same week news broke that could play a big role in Virginia Tech’s postseason life. The NCAA announced the entirety of the NCAA Tournament would be played in and around Indianapolis.
According to college basketball fans around the country, roughly two-thirds of fans think playing all of March Madness in Indianapolis is a good idea.
Hokies fans hope the basketball season goes a little smoother than the most recent football season did. However, after the season has ended, fans are feeling a little better about the program heading as we get farther away from the actual games. 44 percent of VT fans are confident in the direction of the team, up from 33 percent last week and a season low of five percent earlier in the season. With Hendon Hooker headed to Tennessee, next season looks to be Braxton Burmeister’s.
While the Virginia Tech season is over, there is still one game left in the college football season. Ohio State earned their way into that game with a shocking win over Clemson. That win was voted as the most surprising moment of the entire bowl season.
With the win Ohio State advanced on to play Alabama in the CFP National Championship. According to nearly two-thirds of college football fans, Alabama will win another championship.
