True, but for a true rival, you also have to be playing them on a continuing basis for them to remain a rival. Something I am unsure you can say about the rest of the teams on that list. Regardless of the article referenced and WVU feelings of rivalry, I'd guess if you asked VT fans to name two or three rivals, WVU would be much further down the list than when we were in the Big East. I wouldn't be surprised if it showed up in the single digits (percentage-wise).
Yes, yes...I understand how you've moved on to bigger and better things...thosed smash-mouth, bare-knuckled tilts against the Canes, Seminoles,Yellowjackets, Tigers, Deacons, Blue Devils, and Eagles have quickly become the stuff of Hokie legend and lore. Soon you'll have the Panthers and the Orange to add.
