Get Jumpin'!

"Virginia Tech's rush to the tune of Metallica's Enter Sandman is the best in the nation.
First, it doesn't use a mascot to enhance the entrance.
Second, the crowd lights up on the first note of the song, jump-starting the players before anyone steps foot onto the field.
It's a brilliant entrance that's untouched by any other combination of tradition, mascot, fireworks and/or song selection."
