Northern Illinois University is getting a supportive gesture from Virginia Tech, which faced its own campus shooting tragedy last year. The Virginia Tech athletics department this week is encouraging its fans to wear Northern Illinois colors (red and black) to the Hokies' basketball game Saturday against Georgia Tech:

The Virginia Tech men's basketball team will host Georgia Tech Saturday, February 23 at 2 p.m. All fans attending the game are encouraged to wear red and black to show their support for the Northern Illinois University community.
Many universities, schools, groups and individuals reached out to the Hokie Nation after the tragedy of April 16th. Our university was comforted by the outpouring of support from the nation and the world. This is a chance for all members of the Virginia Tech family to show solidarity and concern for all of those members in the NIU family.

Good on ya, Hokies.
(Editor's Note: We know we owe you a follow-up to the JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS post. Will do shortly after we have time to read up on the subject a little more.)
