Video: Hokies player hits referee, remains in game

Virginia Tech is having a frustrating game against North Carolina as longtime coach Frank Beamer holds his final game in Blacksburg before retiring, and one defensive player in particular lost his cool with shocking results.

Defensive end Dadi Lhomme Nicolas was not pleased with a penalty called against the Hokies’ defense and took out his frustration on referee Ron Cherry by smacking the official’s arm down.

But here’s the twist. Despite making contact with the official in such a manner, Nicolas was NOT ejected from the game! Is the world ending? Is there something in the water in Blacksburg that makes those who drink it calmer than usual?

Is Cherry just in a good mood today?
