We're a state flagship that doesn't act like a state flagship


In most state's support for the flagship and/or land grant schools are expected. If you're from Kentucky and say you're a UK fan, from Oklahoma and say you're an OU fan, from Pennsylvania and say you're a PSU fan, etc., nobody questions it. That's your state school and it makes sense.

And for Tech, I feel like that's largely the case. I know tons of people who didn't go to Tech but support the Hokies. Meanwhile, I have had multiple people ask me why I'm a UVA fan if I didn't go there. When I tell them my dad did and I'm from Virginia, they usually get it, but I feel like you shouldn't have to explain why you support your state school. Somehow, we seemingly have made an enemy of the state and it's incredibly frustrating.
