SOME HOKIES UPSET WITH BLACKSBURG ZEN MASTER OVER SUSPENSION OF ALLEN FOR RIVALRY GAME WITH HATED WAHOOS

An exasperated Hokie fan/parent sent us an email in response to the news that Virginia Tech forward and third-leading scorer Jeff Allen had been suspended for Wednesday night’s game against rival Virginia.

It said: "Really? Greenberg zeros in on another NIT bid.”

Really?

You see not only did Allen flip off the Turtle Park crowd after fouling out in the Hokies’ loss Saturday to the Terps, he did it right here in full close-up on Raycom TV. Oops.

Of course, Allen shouldn’t have done something so childish, and he had no way of knowing he was on camera at that moment…or should he have known?

C’mon, Jeff – you just fouled out of the game and you’re taking the ‘walk of shame’ to the bench. When was the last time you watched a game, and we know you’ve watched a basketball game or two in your 21.8 years, and the foul-out guy’s trudge back to Pineville wasn’t the camera shot shown full-screen, if not close up? Seriously?

Clearly, the Washington D.C. native was frustrated, but he should have known better.

Busted. End of story.

Allen issued the following apology:

“I would like to apologize to all that were offended by my actions this past weekend. I know that type of behavior is unacceptable. It was a lapse in judgment during the heat of the moment.”

(Note to torture John “Seminole” Clark – In the Heat of The Moment by Asia. Sorry, dude, couldn’t pass it up.)
