In football VT has had a better brand since the mid 90s after


Herman, Shawn and em left. It was about even when I was in college - we beat FSU, VT was battling with Miami, but by the end of the 90s with Vick it was over. They've been building their brand since then. Ours has taken a hit because of coaching style, not winning, and Groh pissing off the VA coaches. London could have been a good brand builder but he couldn't win. Bronco might win but I don't know how much of a brand builder he'll be.

If you ask casual fans about football, VT has the brand. Basketball, it's us. VCU had a hot second in the spotlight because of that final four run but I think we're the brand (as "boring as we are" lol) in basketball in terms of VA. But most casual Virginians actually flock to the UNCs of the world.
