There are some rivalries that many fan bases cherish. There are others that many fan bases would rather not have, and the Virginia Tech/Boston College rivalry seems to be both of those things. A huge chunk of the Tech fanbase loves the annual contest as a chance to push against a peer program that isn’t a cupcake even in a tough season. There is another chunk that only seems to remember the tough losing games and would rather never play the Eagles, again.
Confession here: I love this rivalry and always have. I am not a fan of dominating “rivalries” that just end up being cupcake contests where my team just gets to beat up on the other team as a matter of routine.
