Now I can only some that some of the students from my alma mater will do something to the gonzaga basketball court.

Huh... nice little prank, it doesn't even get noticed for a whole season... but it was a little odd that a reporter happened to notice it first. QUICK TORTURE HIM TO FIND OUT WHO DID IT!!!! ... err.. umm... yeah.

Pah...William & Mary trumps them both.

I appreciate that it's small enough to be "prank" level rather than "ruin the floor and piss everyone off" level.

in high school i carved "jocks suck" on their usual lunch table and they ate there all year and never noticed.

I bet it was tough for the Virginia Tech student to remember how to spell "VT".
2007-03-01 08:33:44 PM  
Yeah, it looks to be about maybe 2 square inches... I am SHOCKED nobody noticed.

Oh, and "precision engraves?" From where I'm sitting, it looks like somebody carved it out with a screwdriver- it isn't that difficult to slap some polyurethane on it afterward.

In summary, this is probably the least elaborate prank I have ever in my life witnessed.
2007-03-01 08:34:33 PM  
I think they didn't notice because Viginia students/faculty/alumni are too drunk on Apple Martinis

/not mine

I didn't go to VT, but I'm from VA and visited both VT and UVa.

VT was a cool, gothic place in the middle of nowhere with cool kids.

UVa was a nice, townsy place in the middle of nowhere with asshole kids.

Therefore, go Hokies.

Decent prank, but not as good as some of the other college rivalry pranks I've heard of.

Hey! Where's the closeup of the engraving?
Get your act together, director.

The "VT" carving was done with some precision as the lines were very straight.

surprising to see a liberal arts school like UVa appreciating the precision so valued at an engineering school like VPI.

This isn't the first time UVa has had a VT on campus right under their noses (or in this case over their heads). Fresh out of Virginia Tech's school of architecture, a Hokie Alum designed a T shaped building to go strategically near the V shaped building that already existed. From the air it looked like the VT logo of old.

The VT went unnoticed for several years and was ultimately erased when the building replaced as a part of stadium expansion several years ago.

That had to be the most disappointing video I've ever watched. I expected some large VT somewhere, not just a little scratch. You know, somewhere at VT, someone has probably scribbled a UVa logo on a desk.

I learned this one from the TAWVFCI/OP(?)MPB&CSR,U!!!! in my younger days. If memory serves...

He's a Hokie from Virginia Tech
He's into farking sheep
They're cheaper than the women, and easier to keep
He chews his ol' tobaccy, and wears his overalls
And the only thing he cares about is the animals he balls.

Oh I think we need another drink
I think we need another drink
I think we need another drink
I think we need another drink for the glory of the UVa!

/not a Pep Banned alumnus, merely a fellow traveler and sometime drinking companion.

How many hokies does it take to change a lightbulb?

Three, one to change it, and two to explain how they changed it better than the UVA students.

For an engineering school, they certainly are having trouble putting a sphere in a round hole tonight.
2007-03-01 09:03:12 PM  
To be fair, here are some others:

Q. How many UVA students does it take to change a light bulb?
A. Just one, he holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.

Q. How many William and Mary students does it take to change a light bulb?
A. 10. One to change it, and 9 to crack under the pressure.

Q. How many VCU students does it take to change the lightbulb?
A. None. Richmond looks better in the dark.

Q. How many ODU students does it take to change the lightbulb?
A. Three, one to change it, and two to figure out a way to get high off the old bulb.
