but it is kind of a slap to the face of those low major auto-qualifiers.
They suck and yet get good money for getting their butts beat. Plus they’re ending the season the same way it started. What’s to complain about?03/02/2015 at 2:08 PM #76814tjfoose1Participant
… but I personally don’t remember them ever choking and simultaneously laying an egg like what we saw this past weekend.
There were a few, but not many. Think Murray State (but that brings up other ‘issues’) and potentially any game that had Kenny Drummond in the line up.
Then the 1989 ACC tourney debacle of #1 Wolfpack vs #8 (and last place) Maryland. NC State had 3 first team All ACC players (Corch, Monroe, Chucky) while Maryland had only one conference win. To this day, baffling… only thing I can attribute it to is the combo of the exhausting triple OT game the week before against Wake and the breaking of the “Personal Fouls” story.03/02/2015 at 2:09 PM #76815
What’s to complain about?
I meant in the context of being placed in the round of 64 as opposed to a play-in round. That’s all. Your point is valid.03/02/2015 at 2:21 PM #76817VaWolf82Keymaster
Just some info for next week’s bubble watch….After that miserable performance on Sat, State dropped from 27 to 30 on the Dance Card.
Not as big a drop as I feared. Since the Dance Criteria doesn’t include “bad losses” (or at least didn’t the last time they listed their criteria), the drop is probably just teams moving past State.03/02/2015 at 2:23 PM #76818Tau837Participant
3 more losses = 100% out, even if we make ACC tournament final
Less than 2 more wins
Win ACC tournament
2+ more wins, regardless of which ones
I don’t see us winning the ACC tournament, so it’s very simple. Win at least 2 more games.03/02/2015 at 3:06 PM #76822choppack1Participant
Close – I was going to bring up umd but didn’t include because we didn’t need that game to make the tournament. It probably did result in us being 4/5 that year vs 2-3.
But that’s what was so disgusting about the BC game. You have a chance to turn the corner and you blow it. This is showing up 15 minutes late for your follow up interview. I could understand it if we shot 33% and BC shot 37% and won because of a lucky break or if BC was a good team.03/02/2015 at 7:30 PM #76838BJD95Keymaster
Through 3 TV timeouts in WNY, and Wahoowa has exactly…two points. TWO.03/02/2015 at 7:35 PM #76839WufpackerParticipant
Wow, ugly indeed. Glad I missed the first 13 mins.03/02/2015 at 7:43 PM #76840
Their D is so solid that they can withstand that kind of start.03/02/2015 at 7:47 PM #76841BJD95Keymaster
And Wahoowa LEADS by 3 at the half. Strange but true.
Importantly for the bubble, Baylor up 7 on Texas, which would kill the Horns dead for sure.03/02/2015 at 8:51 PM #76843
Hoos win the league regular season crown for the second year in a row. That’s a good program by any measure.03/02/2015 at 8:52 PM #76844pakfanistanParticipant

B-b-b-but the oooooffeeeeennsseeee.03/02/2015 at 8:54 PM #76845
Haha … Texas has rallied and has the ball, tied game 28 seconds left03/02/2015 at 9:00 PM #76847
I’ll take three championships and 28 wins over the sexy offense any day of the week. And they’ve been doing it without their best player on the floor. Scary good basketball team.03/02/2015 at 9:04 PM #76848
Actually, not really – but a scuffle is going to cause a 10 minute delay.03/02/2015 at 9:07 PM #76850
Also, Virginia’s offensive efficiency has sky-rocketed this season and last … pace of play hasn’t though 🙂
I really don’t have a problem with the way they play, just sometimes causes eye vomit (for me).03/02/2015 at 9:15 PM #76852
The thing about UVa is they are still scoring points. They are just uber efficient at how they do it, always finding the best possible shot.
And when you look at the physicality of some of their guys, you immediately know they aren’t some slow/non-athletic team that has to hold the ball. That strength and conditioning program is doing the job.03/02/2015 at 9:17 PM #76853
Bubble just got bigger. Texas wins in Round 3.03/02/2015 at 9:17 PM #76854
Anybody up for BC and Va Tech? Me not.03/02/2015 at 9:20 PM #7685503/02/2015 at 9:20 PM #76856pakfanistanParticipant

Virginia only has one championship in recent history.03/02/2015 at 9:57 PM #76859WufpackerParticipant
Depends upon if one counts reg season 1st place finish as “reg season championship”. I personally don’t, but two years running is still nothing to dismiss as unimpressive.03/02/2015 at 10:09 PM #76861Coach AbatemarcoParticipant
Damn u Baylor. Texas hanging by a thread on the bubble waiting for state to screw up. No pressure pack the next two games are huge. I think tony Bennett is one of the best coaches at adapting during the game in the biz after watching syracuse game. I would love nothing more to see them beat kentucky in the tourney. As far as house of cards goes it is a civics and economics teachers dream. I love some frank undwrwoood!!
Die hard state fan from the crystal coast!03/03/2015 at 7:53 AM #76867choppack1Participant
How do uva’s players have any zip? Are they not tired??
