Hey Gang! I'm looking forward to visiting with you right here on TKP today at noon. It should be a lot of fun and even if it's not, it's only an hour right? I mean, how bad can one-hour be?
We all sat through the 2012 Russell Athletic Bowl, and that game took at least 4 hours. Maybe it was 5. That was the night where the Hokies rushed the ball 32 times for a grand total of one yard. (To make that statistic sound better on the broadcast, I mentioned that we actually rushed for three feet. Impressive, eh?) For those who don't recall, Tech had one-yard rushing, five fumbles, committed 14 penalties ... and won in overtime. God Bless Rutgers.
I promise this AMA will be better than the 2012 Russell Athletic Bowl. While that may be somewhat of a low bar, with your help, we can do it.
Hopefully, we can talk about our new Sports Media & Analytics Program at Virginia Tech. This semester, we have over 100 students taking these classes, and in the Spring 2018, that number will hit 120. I think these kids are learning a lot about sports media, journalism and broadcasting. I know they're teaching me about a lot of cool stuff too ... like why Avocado Toast is great, and insightful millennial phrases like "Deuce" and "Sipping Tea."
You can learn more about what we're doing in our classrooms and studios at Tech, and how I'm spending my weekends broadcasting games, on my new on-line home, www.RothReportOnline.com. Please take a look.
So now, the ball is on the tee. Let's get this AMA started. And together, we can beat Rutgers again!
