My honest guess?

1) People know who the University of Virginia is because of our academic reputation.

2) Not many outside of sports fans or UVA fans know our mascot off the top of their head.

3) Not nearly as many people outside of the Virginia/mid-Atlantic area know what Virginia Tech is as a school, in comparison to Virginia.

4) But they have heard the term "Hokies" in reference to sports at some point in their lives. Maybe the Michael Vick era helped drive some of that.

So the intersection of people that have heard of #1 and #4 but do not know #2 and #3 = people that call it the Virginia Hokies.

I dunno, sounds like a reasonable theory, right? 🤣
