Virginia Tech vs University of Tennessee sign now

I've been hearing rumors about a possible gridiron matchup between VT and UT for at least the last 5 years. According to Bill Roth (Voice of the Hokies), the owner of Bristol Motor Speedway offered both schools $2M each to play there. Unfortunately, this was not a serious offer and was basically a publicity stunt to promote upcoming events at the race track.

Now imagine if this game were to happen. Two teams about 4 hours away from each other playing on a field almost exactly equidistant to each school. Not to mention that the stadium would hold over 100,000 of the most zealot fans in an area where you either bleed Tech's burnt orange or UT's bright orange.

As a Hokie, I feel as if we lack a true rival. I realize that we play UVA every year, but let's be honest, they're not exactly heavy-hitters in the world of college football. WVU was a formidable foe, but that rivalry got out of control and is now history. I also realize that UT has a few rivalries within the SEC, so what's in it for them? Well...the national exposure from a game of such enormous magnitude along with all the revenue they will ultimately receive. It'll be like a Bowl game in August.

So let's do our part to help make this game a reality by signing this petition, and forwarding it to friends and family that would like to see 2 of the best programs in the country go head-to-head.
