Hokies and Heels and Sam Howell fashion tips
Virginia Tech and North Carolina have developed a healthy dislike for one another in recent years. It was bound to happen as the games have been close and the two programs routinely battle for recruits. Everyone knows each other and the programs have, shall we diplomatically say different approaches?
The Hokies are all about grit and the #HardSmartTough branding while the Tar Heels have become media darlings thanks to the flash of the Jordan brand and the connections of former ESPN talking head Mack Brown.
Speaking of the Jordan brand, Carolina quarterback Sam Howell is featured on this week's episode after a possibly ill-advised photo shoot featuring fancy shoes and all the spiked hair you can handle. I'm not one to make fun of another man's hair as my hairline is in full retreat, but distressed jeans are fair game in my book.
The marketing department missed an excellent opportunity to make a "Blue Steel" reference — especially given their colors — but that's why I'm here.
Justin Fuente will put his 4-0 record against the Tar Heels on the line this week and it's anyone's guess who suits up on both sides as rumors continue to swirl about Covid-19 related availability.
Let's just hope Whit Babcock makes it there and back safely.
Give this week's episode a watch as we look at Sam Howell, Tech-Carolina, Miami-Clemson, and review some weird Hokie memorabilia.
