LAST WEEK, we asked you for your thoughts on the shootings at Virginia Tech. The response was strong - as was some unhappiness with our Page 1 showing the killer aiming a gun. Did colleges not learn anything from Columbine? Student Cho was unbalanced. He was discharged from one class because of his outrageous writings. He was accused of stalking two students in 2005. It was all there just waiting for the fuse to be lit by a very troubled and potentially psychotic person. Yet the administration decided to do nothing.

THE MEDIA AND public reaction to the Virginia Tech shooting is an example of what is wrong with the world. No mention was made of the fact that someone or many people must have mistreated the shooter since childhood to create such rage. No mention of the fact that many of his complaints were valid. There is no spirit of remorse or repentance at Virginia Tech about the school's weaknesses. No mention was made of the fact that the shooter was being gossipped about, laughed at, and ridiculed by cruel Virginia Tech students and faculty for years.

Bartram's Tyrone Garland, the only junior on the Daily News' first-team All-City squad last year, yesterday announced that he would attend Virginia Tech. Garland, a 6-1 guard who averaged 28.9 points a game while leading the Public League and city in scoring last season, was considering several schools, including La Salle. Virginia Tech, coached by Seth Greenberg, is in need of a scoring threat like Garland, even though it will have to wait a year to get him. The Hokies, who play in the Atlantic Coast Conference, were 19-15 overall last season and failed to gain a bid into the NCAA Tournament.

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. - A jury found Virginia Tech negligent on Wednesday for waiting to warn students about a gunman during a 2007 campus massacre that left 33 dead. Jurors deliberated for 31/2 hours before siding with the parents of two students who were killed April 16, 2007, in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Their wrongful-death civil lawsuit argued that lives could have been spared if school officials had moved more quickly to alert the campus after the first two victims were shot in a dorm.

Virginia Tech bounced back just fine from its shocking collapse against Boston College. One week after the No. 11 Hokies squandered a 10-point lead to BC in the final minutes, Sean Glennon threw two long touchdown passes and ran for another score to lead Virginia Tech to a 27-3 win over host Georgia Tech last night. Glennon made his second straight start in place of freshman Tyrod Taylor, who was sidelined again by a sprained ankle. The replacement starter, who lost the job to Taylor after the second game, made the most of it by throwing for 296 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown pass to Justin Harper and a 71-yarder to Josh Morgan.

With their minds focused by solemn thought, the Temple Owls went into yesterday's game against Virginia Tech as if nothing could stop them. And nothing did. The Owls weathered four turnovers, the collapse of defensive line coach Earle Mosley in the closing minutes of the game and an assortment of emotional jolts to upset the Hokies, 31-28, before a crowd of 25,712 at Veterans Stadium. "We turned the ball over a few times," said Temple coach Jerry Berndt, whose team evened its record at 3-3. "We had trouble stopping them.

Downingtown East's Jack Willenbrock, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound offensive tackle, has committed to play football at Virginia Tech. "The team has a great leader in [coach] Frank Beamer," the junior said. "He's led them to 18 consecutive bowl games. I wanted to be part of that kind of tradition. " Willenbrock, of Glenmoore, visited Virginia Tech last week. It was the first school to make him an offer. The 17-year-old also made unofficial trips to Penn State, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia.

The Atlantic Ten Conference is talking to Virginia Tech about replacing Penn State as the conference's 10th member, but no invitation has been extended. That was the response by league commissioner Ron Bertovich and Virginia Tech athletic director David Braine to a report in a Morgantown, W. Va., newspaper yesterday that the Atlantic Ten had formally invited Tech to join the conference. The report also said that the league was waiting for an answer from officials at the school, which is in Blacksburg, Va. "We have had discussions with Virginia Tech about possibly becoming a member of our conference, but that's as far as it has gone," said Bertovich.

Malvern Prep's Shane Muntz more than made up for plunking five batters and being lifted after only 21/3 innings Tuesday in the Inter-Ac League opener against Haverford School. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound junior belted a three-run home run to left field in the first inning and a clinching grand slam to right in the seventh as the visiting Friars stayed hot with a 9-4 win over the Fords. Muntz, a righthander whose fastball hovers in the 88-to-92-mph range, first addressed the pitching wildness.

There was the campus, the coaching staff, the future teammates. There was the tradition, the level of competition, the quality of education. But there was something else that drew Tyree Rodgers to Virginia Tech. "They have an unbelievable strength and conditioning program," Rodgers said. "They transform people into monsters. " Rodgers, a first-team, all-South Jersey selection from Camden Catholic, made the biggest news on Signing Day with his surprise decision to attend Virginia Tech.

The rugby sevens squad from the University of California is no stranger to PPL Park, home of the collegiate rugby championships this weekend. Walking off the field in sticky late-afternoon heat Saturday after their third pool-play game - against Virginia Tech - the Golden Bears had a familiar view: parents decked in navy and gold smacking their palms together in support; sweaty, shirtless fans sipping from cans of beer; and the rosy-cheeked faces of...

Twice this season, Penn State point guard Shep Garner, a freshman out of Roman Catholic, has gone viral in the college hoops world - and really neither time it was because of his own actions. Garner was just playing ball. The first time, the Nittany Lions were at home against Virginia Tech in December. "I think there was a timeout before we came out," Garner remembers. "I think everyone lost focus. " He meant everyone but him. The video is the kind you end up watching over and over.

AS WE REACH the midway point of the first FBS season with a playoff, the top of the rankings are where they were on Jan. 6: Florida State is first and Auburn is No. 2. But can they remain there? Or at least do enough to get in the inaugural Final Four? The Seminoles host Notre Dame next week and go to Louisville on Oct. 30. They're at Miami on Nov. 15 and host Florida two weeks later, not that either of those rivals are what they were. Then there's the ACC title game in Charlotte against, most likely, Virginia, Georgia Tech or Virginia Tech.

If you wanted to experience a little secondhand bliss Saturday afternoon, the place to be was on the banks of the Schuylkill just above the Columbia Railroad Bridge, at the finish of the Dad Vail Regatta. Every 10 minutes, more arrived. Pumped fists, water splashed on teammates, coxswains thrown in the Schuylkill. That one Temple freshman drinking from the Schuylkill. (A teammate on land pointed out that was a really bad idea.) There were those girls from Northern California ("basically Oregon")

Joe Lolio broke one of baseball's biggest unwritten rules Tuesday afternoon when he mentioned on the bench that Neumann-Goretti teammate Pat Doudican was closing in on a no-hitter against Bonner-Prendergast. It proved the ultimate jinx. Doudican, with one out in the top of the sixth inning, promptly allowed an otherwise meaningless bloop single to shallow left field. "That's OK," Doudican said, letting Lolio off the hook. "That's baseball for you. It's a game of inches. The ball landed just fair.
