Va. Tech fan displays despicable sign before Miami football game
VIRGINIA – A horrible sign displayed by presumed Virginia Tech fans could be one of the most despicable and disgusting in sports history.
The sign, which appears to be hanging outside a Virginia apartment complex, was posted by Barstool Sports
It reads "Bury the U next to Jose Fernandez RIP."
Miami is scheduled to face Virginia Tech in a nationally-televised game Thursday night on ESPN. The game will be played in Blacksburg, home of the Hokies.
It's not clear if the apartment is in Blacksburg or nearby.
Miami Marlins pitcher Fernandez, and two others, died in a boat accident off Miami Beach on Sept. 25.
Hurricanes players wore a helmet sticker honoring Fernandez in their win over Georgia Tech.
If you're or Canes fan or not, there is no place for this kind of fandom.
