It will be awesome! Until UNC wins and jumps us (even though we beat them and have a better record) and UVA stays ahead of us (after losing two straight and with a worse record).

Huge night in the B1G tomorrow. Top 5 teams in the conference are all in action. UM at PSU, Purdue at Maryland, and MSU at Wisconsin. Go Terps and Badgers!

I mean as far as talent goes Archie is getting similar recruiting classes to what Crean was getting. But getting 5 stars doesn’t mean shit if you can’t develop a cast around them. Crean>Miller but Crean could not get Indiana where they want to be or where they think they should be lol. IU is no longer that elite program on par with UK UNC dook or Kansas. The key to getting to that level....cheat

Now that UVa has lost to Duke twice, there aren't really any scenarios where a Virginia win helps Michigan.  Unless all hell breaks loose, there will be a one seed from the ACC.  The thing that could hurt Michigan would be if there were two.  So, none* of us really want UVa to pick up additional quality wins.

Correct :D  A 2-seed for Michigan is a small price to pay for beating Carolina at Carolina.

That damn school told the NCAA that their little academic free-A's-for-everyone scandal was purely a problem with the academic side of the school and any athletic participation was pure coincidence.  Then they told the accreditors that the only reason this happened was to assist some athletes and the general population was unaffected.  And both the NCAA and accreditors lapped it up.  Cheaters.

I know we would struggle scoring on UVA with the way the team is playing right now, but holy crap UVA would get buried by our defense. Who on their team is putting up points against us? If you don't let them shoot 3's (which we don't let any team do) they have nobody that could consistently get inside the paint and score on Teske

ak47 don't let facts get in the way of tribal mentality.  UVA sucks because of a game last year, Gonzaga sucks because they grew up a small college in a small conference and blossomed into a perennial basketball powerhouse but remain in said conference, Duke is overrated cuz fuck Dook, Tennessee sucks because no one here has honestly watched them and Peyton Manning and Phillip Fuller...annnnd you get the idea.

I watched the last two Virginia games and agree with this take.   They have offensive weapons.   

I really like their roster.   The bigs are mobile.  Huff can shoot it from the perimeter.   Hunter is a versatile, athletic wing.   Jerome and Guy can also fill it.  They get bench production.    I really like this squad.   

The only thing Bennett needs to prove?  Translating regular season success into post-season success.   This is the year, right?

I hate UNC more than I hate Duke. They just suck. 

And honestly, at this point, I don't really know how much we benefit from UNCs success (there's always a possibility they could jump us due to how strong the ACC is)

I am glad Virginia won. Fuck UNC basketball
