During the month of August, TechSideline.com has added two new features, and
several pages have been updated. We are proud to announce the creation of a new
Student Ticket Exchange Message Board, as well as new student subscription
rates. Read on for more details.
New Student Ticket Board and Student Subscription Rate
The new Student
Ticket Exchange Message Board was created for students who didn’t
get tickets through the lottery, or who don’t have a ticket with their
friends. The same rules for the regular Ticket Exchange Board apply for the
Student Ticket Exchange Board. Scalping, buying tickets and then reselling them
at a higher price, and promoting eBay auctions will not be allowed.
We are also offering a new student
discount rate for student subscribers. The new student rate for
TSL Pass is $24.99, a $25 discount from the regular fee. So if you’re a
student, and you’ve been on the fence about whether to join, now’s your
Students are the future of the Hokie Club, Alumni Association and other
important organizations, and their support is extremely important to us because
they are the future of TechSideline.com as well.
Women’s Basketball Page Updated
Also, the women’s
basketball page has been updated with the 2006-07 schedule. As
the season progresses, keep checking this page for information on the progress
of Beth Dunkenberger’s team.
The women’s basketball team lost a lot of very good and experienced players
off last year’s NCAA tournament team. The Hokies have made four consecutive
NCAA tournament appearances, and are hoping for a fifth. There will be a lot of
young talent on the team this season, and it will be interesting to see how they
do against a challenging ACC schedule.
Hokies in the Polls
The Coaches’ Poll and the A.P. Poll have both been released, and if you
check out the TSL
home page, the rankings have returned to the home page (we didn’t
show them there last year) and have been updated. Tech is currently ranked 16th
in the Coaches’ Poll and 17th in the A.P. Poll.
The Hokies have finished in the top 10 in both polls for the past two
seasons. Since 1993, the Hokies have finished the season unranked in both polls
just twice, in 1997 and 2003.
