    I would mind big time if we moved our home game to Fed Ex.

    I'd consider it an ACC favor if we got them in Lane. Considering the way we got railroaded this season with the schedule, they owed us one.

    You would be delirious to think anyone at the ACC offices thinks we are owed a favor. Especially while probably half the conference still thinks it was a mistake inviting from the beginning.

    No it's tribute to frank most winning active coach

    Frank has lots of respect from the profession.

    Agreed. We carry fball and then turn down a power conference, yet look who gets screwed w/ the schedule reshuffle. No reason to think they would hook us up for our loyalty when they can cave to FSU, Clemson, and the always demanding Tobacco Rd. I'm kinda over this ACC thing. BTW, the home ND games ae where the money's at. I would like going to SB, but hosting ND makes my season tickets worth something.

    So would I!!! I go to Tech games equally to see the Hokies and to be in Blacksburg around my friends and where I spent my college years! I can even stand the crappy home schedules, BUT, when we give up our HOME games for some neutral site (FedEx, Charlotte, etc)...it's enough to make me consider giving up as well (as in giving up my season tickets)!

    Playing ND in FedEx might just be the tipping point for me...You guys go and enjoy. I'll be at home watching on TV! I have already BEEN to my last Hokie game in FedEx!

    I am absolutely on the same page here! Unfortunately, we still have so many Hokies who yearned for the ACC for years, that the ACC knows they can do anything they want and we'll just say, "Thank you sir. May I have another?"

    WE lost ALL leverage because they KNOW we blew our shot at the SEC. It makes me ill!

    I'd rather get Frank a ND game in BLACKSBURG before he retires! THAT would be a much bigger statement about how far he's brought the Hokies program!
