Hatefest 2009: Why I hate… UVA

During Hatefest 2009 we have hated on many different schools throughout this great nation. Hatefest now draws to its magnificent conclusion with the school any Hokie should hate more than Lee Corso himself. There will be a different format this week; each of the writers will talk about why we each hate UVA. Hope everyone except UVA fans enjoy. 

What I want to hate about set back the Virginia Tech football program 14 years. UVA slaughtered the Hokies 42-23 at Lane Stadium on November 19, 1994. The blowout shattered Hokie Nation to its core leading to a decision that wasn’t reversed till last year. During the game the Hokies wore an orange uniform, orange jersey and orange pants. The orange uniform was blamed for the loss. Frank Beamer said he would burn them and orange would never be seen on a Hokie football player again. Will Stewart said “The Hokies looked like a bunch of tangerines on the field, and UVA proceeded to beat the pulp out of them.” The color orange as the main focus of the Hokie’s uniform was not seen again till The Orange Effect game last year against Georgia Tech. Thankfully the Hokies won that game or else it would have been till 2022 till we saw an orange Hokie again.

So, I hate UVA for a lot more reasons than this but, this seemed to be the most unfounded of all of my reasons. However, how can you not hate a team that makes you change your uniform for a decade and a half?

    Those are the Jimmy Williams of jerseys. They should be great in theory, but in actuality, they're kind of f***ing terrible.

  2. The Northerner Says:

    Did Jimmy Williams steal your girlfriend or something? You have an unnatural amount of hate towards him.

  3. C Gally Says:

    One time, I saw Jimmy Williams put Sprite in a water cup at Owens. What a douche.

  4. The Northerner Says:

    Ha… I remember that shit. How cheap were we. Save 50 cents at lunch only to blow 17 bucks on Taco Bell later that night.

  5. C Gally Says:

    17 bucks at Taco Bell?? No one has ever spent that much and lived to tell about it.

    But yeah, we were cheap as hell.

    Apparently you have never heard of the Century Club, where you have to spend $100 at a Tacobell drive through…

    It helps to have a minivan full of drunk people.
