For those of us who can't be on Canal St. for the pep rally, we added our own little rendition of a "victory song:" (You should recognize the familiar "Hokie Pokie" tune.) The Michigan defense goes in; Virginia Tech goes "three and out." The Wolverines offense goes in, and Shoelace "shakes it all about." He'll run over those Hokie Pokies and just keep scoring big touchdowns; That's what it's all about! Go Blue; and thanks for taking us to a B.C.S. Bowl!
