Besides bandwagonners they have way many more alumni than we do
The graduates are spread out all over the state and thus many more fans. They take over entire regions whereas UVA is very centered in NoVA from my experience. I'm completely surrounded by Hokies down here in Chesapeake/VA Beach area. It's also a bigger part of their university culture than it has been at UVA for many years. I think their undergrad class is about 11k larger than ours.
