David Teel caught up with Whit Babcock and Desiree Reed-Francois on the latter's new post as AD at Nevada-Las Vegas. He closed with an interesting nugget, Babcock headed to Vegas to attend her introduction, and there may be plans for a Virginia Tech-UNLV home-and-home down the road.
"It's a great opportunity, but I am going to miss Virginia Tech, Blacksburg and my colleagues an awful lot. There's something really special about Virginia Tech, and I was really blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of it for a little while."
Babcock thinks so much of Reed-Francois that he's attending her Tuesday introduction at UNLV, and not because he's looking to split aces at the blackjack table. Reed-Francois hopes he'll return some day as part of a Hokies-Rebels football home-and-home.
If the UNLV-Raiders stadium deal gets done, there's a road trip many Tech faithful would welcome.
Is that a home-and-home series you would enjoy, and would you hypothetically make the trip out to Vegas for the game?
